Class registration - Section contents

Once you’ve enrolled in your subjects, you will be ready to register for classes and choose your timetable. You can only register for classes during the official class registration period.

When does class registration open?

Class registration usually opens four weeks before teaching begins and closes three weeks into semester.

When does class registration close?

Class registration for most standard subjects will close at the end of week three of semester. If you wish to register for classes or change your timetable post week three, you will have to do so via your Student Centre. Your student centre may also request that you provide evidence that the change has been approved by your subject coordinator or senior tutor.

How do I register for classes?

To register into classes for the semester, log in to my.unimelb.

  • Select "My timetable" in the Student Admin box. All available tutorials, seminars, and lectures for each of your subjects will appear.
  • Select your desired classes.
  • Save your selection.

For more detailed instructions, see the Enrolment website. If you are enrolled in graduate study, you may not be able to self manage your timetable, and will be allocated specific classes. If you are uncertain whether this applies to you, please contact your graduate school or student centre to confirm this.

Join a waiting list 

Some subjects within the 'Student Timetable' will allow you to join a wait list for that class if it is already full. If a spot in the class then opens up, the person at the top of the waitlist will move into that class. 

Please note: not all classes have waiting lists. If a waitlist is available, this will be noted next to the class and you will be able to select this option on your personal timetable. 

If you are still on a waitlist a week before semester starts, you will need to remove yourself from that waitlist and complete your registration in a different class.
