Step 10: Enrol in your subjects

Once you have decided on which subjects you would like to take, you will need to enrol in them online.

Enrol in your subjects online

When enrolling into subjects for the first time, you will need to enrol in subjects for the first year of your course.

You can enrol in your subjects using the Study Plan. The Study Plan is an online tool that structures your course, and which you will use to plan, enrol in and change your subjects. It shows your major, minor, specialisation, and subject options available for you to choose from.

For more information, see our Study Plan FAQ.

When to enrol in subjects

To ensure you are on track for the start of semester, please be aware of these two key dates:

  • 3 February 2020, 10am: you need to be enrolled in subjects so you can submit your Semester 1 class preferences before this deadline. Find out more about how to create your class timetable.
  • Enrolment Lapse Date: the last date by which you must enrol in your course (degree), including all subjects for your entire first year of study. This date is outlined in your offer letter.

Check the census dates for each subject

The subject census date is the date by which you can make changes to subjects without remaining liable to pay for them. Census dates are different for each subject.

After you’ve enrolled in your subjects, check your subject census dates and payment due dates via your Statement of Liability, which can be accessed through your my.unimelb account.

If you want to withdraw from a subject, you must withdraw by the census date. If you withdraw after the census date you will still be required to pay for the subject.

You can also review census dates by checking the subject entry in the Handbook.

Subject prerequisites

Some subjects may have prerequisites. This means that they have a ‘prior study’ condition attached to them. For each subject that you plan to take, check that you have already met (or you are on track to meeting) its prerequisites so that you can enrol in them.
