Most students need to enrol in topics (subjects) and register in classes (choose your timetable) yourself. You can do this in the Student System, which can be accessed from your Flinders dashboard (Okta). There is a range of information and videos to help you plan your studies and enrol in MyFlinders, which can also be accessed from your Flinders dashboard (Okta).
Enrolment will commence in the week of 19 November 2018. The dates when particular topic areas open are detailed in the Enrolment and Class Registration Schedule.
Be aware that the final date to enrol in topics and register in classes is the second Friday of each semester. See the Critical enrolment dates page for these and other critical enrolment dates, including information about summer and other non-semester dates.
If you are commencing a new course of study at Flinders, visit your personalised MyFlinders page for enrolment guidance and information specific to your course.
If you are continuing a course of study then you should review your course rule to plan your study. Enrol in all the topics you need, even if you decide to change your enrolment later. Complete your enrolment and class registration in the Student System and visit the MyFlinders from your Flinders dashboard for infomraiton about planning your studies, demonstration videos and infomration about enrolling.
You can also visit Ask Flinders for answers to frequently asked questions or to submit an online support request.
You can enrol in additional topics, or change classes at any time until the last date to enrol. Visit the Critical enrolment dates page for the important dates.
You can withdraw from topics at any time until the last teaching day of the semester. However if you wish to avoid incurring student contribution amounts, tuition fees and student services and amenities fees for a topic, then you must withdraw before the census date. Visit the Critical enrolment dates page for more information about the impact of withdrawing at different times of the semester. Note: unregistering from a class does not withdraw you from a topic.
The University must comply with Australian Government legislation in regard to census dates for topics and cannot make special provisions for students who have failed to enrol or withdraw on time.
Prerequisite enrolment information
You will be able to enrol if you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite topic.
If you are sitting a supplementary exam or deferred assessment, or are still awaiting results, it is recommended that you enrol and register in classes as if you have passed the requirements of that topic.
However, if you subsequently fail the prerequisite topic, you will need to amend your enrolment or obtain approval for a prerequisite waiver to avoid cancellation.
If you need further assistance with issues relating to prerequisites, request support via Ask Flinders.
Check your enrolment
Check your enrolment carefully after adding or withdrawing from topics to ensure that you are enrolled;
- in the correct topics,
- under the correct courses (if undertaking a combined degrees program),
- for the correct semester or study period, and
- in the correct location.
Select ‘View my Current Enrolment’ on the Student System menu to confirm your enrolment.
Update your student card
Continuing students who need a sticker to update their student ID card can obtain them from Flinders Connect (Level 0, Central Library) or the Enrolment Support Centre, located adjacent to Flinders Connect, when open during enrolment. After the last day to enrol, stickers are only available from Flinders Connect.
Maintain a full-time enrolment (where required)
To be enrolled full-time you need to study 18 units in a semester. In some circumstances students may enrol in more than 18 units - this is called an overload. Special approval is required for any overload more than 22.5 units per semester. You will be required to pay any fees and charges associated with the additional enrolment. You can request overload approval via the Ask Flinders website.
Students receiving support from Centrelink must be enrolled in at least 13.5 units per semester. If you are enrolled in 2 separate courses which are not recognised as official double degrees at Flinders University, then you must be enrolled in at least 13.5 units in one of your courses each semester to remain eligible for Centrelink support.
International students in Australia on a student visa must normally complete their degree within the approved visa period, usually 18 units per semester. Your course coordinator can assist you to plan your studies to meet these requirements. See Student visa holder responsibilities. Information can be found on the Enrolment information page or find more answers via the Ask Flinders website.
