Enrolment

  • I'm having trouble enrolling in a subject on my Study Plan.

    If you're unable to enrol in a subject on your Study Plan, please take the following actions:

    1. Confirm you meet the subject requirements by checking the handbook.

    2. Check there are no sanctions on your student account that are impacting your enrolment.

    3. Complete any tasks on your Study Plan (e.g., the Career Census, Highest Level of Completion).

    If you're still unable to enrol, please submit an Enrolment Variation (EV) form to request manual enrolment into subjects. You can view instructions on how to complete and submit an EV form here . Please continue to check your Study Plan and student email for updates on your request.

  • Why can't I enrol in a subject that I have met the prerequisite for?

    If you've met a prerequisite for a subject but it’s not recognised in your Study Plan, you can submit a prerequisite waiver through an Enrolment Variation (EV) form. EV forms can also be submitted for VCE Year 12 (or equivalent) prerequisites.

    1. Log in to Enrolment Variation Form.

    2. Select Course and Variation Type (add requisite waiver) and click 'Next'.

    3. Select 'Add Subject Requisite/Waiver or Request Overload'.

    4. Add the details of the subject you want to enrol in. (If the prerequisite relates to required grades for a prior subject, upload evidence of your results with your EV form.)

    5. Click all the mandatory declarations and submit the form.

  • How do I apply for a Leave of Absence?

    Coursework students

    If you've completed at least one semester of study and want to take time off from your course, you can apply for a Leave of Absence from the Leave of Absence page on my.unimelb. You must apply for one half-year period of leave, or up to 12 months.

    If you’re in your first semester of study and the census date hasn’t passed, please refer to the Defer my offer website.

    If you're an international student, we recommend speaking to our dedicated Course Planning team to discuss how taking a Leave of Absence will affect your visa.

  • How do I enrol in a subject after the last date to self-enrol?

    After the last date to self-enrol has passed, you won’t be able to enrol in subjects on your Study Plan yourself. Instead, you need to seek permission from the subject coordinator to enrol late into the subject and submit an Enrolment Variation (EV) form with the approval as evidence. Your request is then assessed on a case-by-case basis by your faculty.

    Please note, enrolling after the census date is not possible, even with subject coordinator approval.

    You can confirm a subject’s key dates on the ‘Dates and Times’ tab on the handbook .

    Please note that some Faculties have restrictions on late enrolment. For more information, please view our Enrolment Variation website.

  • Can I still take my Online/Dual Delivery subject online, if the Study Plan says the subject is 'On Campus'?

  • What happens if I don't re-enrol?

    If you don’t re-enrol in subjects or apply for a Leave of Absence before the deadline, you risk having your enrolment cancelled.

    If you've been cancelled from your course due to a failure to re-enrol, you can apply to be reinstated. If successful, you'll be liable for a reinstatement fee. Please refer to your cancellation email and follow the instructions to apply for reinstatement.

  • Why do I need to confirm my highest level of completion details before enrolling in subjects?

    The 'Highest Level of Completion' is information that the University must report to the Government and replaces the 'Highest Level of Participation' information you may have provided when you first enrolled. Once you've confirmed or entered the requested information, you'll be able to access your Study Plan and enrol in subjects.
