All students, both new and continuing, should obtain enrolment advice before completing their enrolment. For enrolment advice directly related to the course that you are studying, contact either your Degree Coordinator or a Faculty Officer.
Bachelor of Science & Associate Degree in Science students should contact a Faculty Officer for advice in the first instance.
Each degree has course specifications (i.e. rules for completion) together with a schedule of units which are the principle references that should be used when choosing your units. You should read the course structure information, together with the schedules, before selecting your units.
This information is available on the UTAS online Course and Unit Handbook - follow this link for Science, Engineering & Technology courses
There is also an online e-tour of the UTAS Course & Unit Handbook, to help you find these links.
For some degrees there are no choices to be made but for others, you have to decide which units you want to study.
A degree planner can help you to map out your intended enrolment.
Timetable clashes should be avoided where possible. It is not possible for the Faculty to guarantee a clash-free timetable for all students.
Your personal timetable can be accessed 24 hours after your enrolment has been processed - open the Class Timetable webpage and enter your Student ID number.
If you wish to seek credit (or exemption) for previous study you must submit an application form and supporting documentation to the Faculty Office, well in advance of the census date, for consideration. Credit cannot be processed if documentation is incomplete.
Please note that it can take up to 4 weeks for credit to be processed.
There are forms that must be completed to advise us if you wish to defer your enrolment (new students) or to take a leave of absence from study for a period longer than 1 semester (continuing students). These forms are available online on the University's Current Students website.
If you are an international student, you must seek advice from International Services if you need to intermit your studies.
Most students will complete their enrolment online through the eStudentCentre.
To complete your enrolment in person, print out your latest enrolment statement (through the eStudentCentre, or the on-campus Student Centre), fill in the unit information as above, take the form to your Degree Coordinator or a Faculty Officer for approval and then lodge it at the on-campus Student Centre.
There will be an opportunity for you to vary your enrolment, should you change your mind about your unit selection. You can vary your enrolment any time up until the Census Date without any penalties, providing you have the Unit Coordinator's and Faculty Officer's approval for addition of units after Week 2 of semester.
If withdrawal after the census date is for medical or other reasons you can apply for a withdrawal without academic penalty and a remission of fees.
Please note that variations to your enrolment can impact on academic progress, fee liability or other entitlements (e.g. Centrelink benefits). If you are an international student you are required to maintain a full-time enrolment as a condition of your student visa.
It is of utmost importance that you register your expected completion date as this can impact on when you graduate. Delays in graduation could result if this information is not completed or if it is incorrect. You should revise your graduation details, if required, each time you re-enrol.
You can update your graduation details online through the eStudentCentre.
You must keep the University informed of your personal details (addresses, telephone contacts, citizenship etc.) particularly if these have changed since your last enrolment. Your contact details are important should we find it necessary to get in touch with you.
You can update your contact details online through the eStudentCentre.
Our main means of communication with you is via email. You should check your email account at least once a week as important information regarding your enrolment may be sent to it.
Once you have enrolled an ENROLMENT CONFIRMATION is generated and emailed to you. You must check your enrolment confirmation statement carefully to ensure it is correct, as mistakes or omissions can be made. If you find an omission, please contact a Faculty Officer immediately.
Students who enrol online will have their enrolment checked and approved electronically by a Degree Coordinator or Faculty Officer. If you enrol in person using an enrolment form, a Faculty Officer will sign your form once it has been checked and approved.
You should regularly check the approval status of your enrolment on the eStudentCentre. You should also check your email account as we will normally alert you to any enrolment problems via email.
Still need assistance with your enrolment or other issues related to your study? Please contact a Faculty Officer as we are here to help you.
