When can I enrol?

Specific dates and times allocated to programs are displayed separately for commencing and continuing undergraduate and postgraduate students in the links below.

You can start enrolling into courses from early December, and continue to amend your enrolment up to the last day to enrol online. Ensure you check critical dates that apply to your studies because you will be charged fees for the courses listed on your academic record at census date.

Please recheck the open date and time for your program closer to the enrolment period as some details may have changed since originally published.

If you are a continuing student, and have successfully applied for an internal transfer to another program, you will be able to enrol into your new program when it opens for enrolment.

You can enrol from any computer with internet access either on or off campus. Available facilities on campus include Faculty and School computer labs, Hub Central, and Barr Smith Library. Enter an 'a' before your id number e.g. a1234567 to access online services.

Enrolment periods

Opening weeks for online enrolments. Specific program enrolment dates can be found below.

  • Commencing students

    Most academic programs offer enrolment advice to familiarise you with the structure of your degree and the choice of courses available. Faculties will provide advice online at their website, and may also offer a face-to-face enrolment session. You are strongly encouraged to view and attend advice relevant to your program.

    Students who receive an offer from SATAC or International Application System should check their Faculty's website for information. If an enrolment advice session is offered, you can view the Campus map to check locations of advice sessions at campuses and maps.

    Note: If you received a late offer, please check your Faculty and Schools website for advice.

  • Continuing students

    If you are currently undertaking more than one program, you can enrol in classes for each program once it opens.

    Programs are listed in alphabetical order – make sure you select the correct link as the open times may be different for continuing and commencing students in the same program.

  • Summer and Winter School students

    Taking courses in Summer or Winter School is a great way to accelerate your study, catch up on missed courses or broaden your educational experience.

    Courses are taught in intensive mode - normally over a period of 2 - 4 weeks and are available across Faculties and at both an undergraduate and postgraduate level.

    You can enrol in 1 or 2 courses (3 or 6 units). Please be aware that 6 units is the equivalent to half a full-time semester workload.

    Please refer to the Course Planner to search for available courses.


  • Important information

    • It is important that you complete all academic and administrative actions by the relevant census and critical dates.
    • You should enrol into courses for all the relevant teaching periods in the full academic year of your program of study, and ensure that these courses meet your program rules.

    • Any outstanding financial obligations to the University need to be paid before you can enrol and you should check the 'Your Finances' brochure.
    • Consult your faculty or school website for advice on course selection to plan your timetable, and enrol correctly to make sure you are on track for future completion.

    For support with enrolments, call the Enrolment Hotline on 8313 3833, or visit staff at Ask Adelaide, Hub Central, North Terrace Campus.

    Carefully check the census date for each course in which you enrol and finalise your enrolment in each teaching period well before the relevant add and drop dates. If you are enrolled in a course at the census date, it will appear on your academic record and you will incur a financial liability.

    To proceed, you will need your personal email address for identity management, student id number and password. Enter 'a' before your number to gain access.

  • Activate your student email account

    Your student campus email account is the most common method of communication across the University and it is important that you check it frequently.

    Activate student email account

    After you have activated your student email account, log in to EnrolMe - the student portal - to complete your checklist, select your payment option e.g. HECS or FEE-HELP, and enrol into your courses. Here you will also be able to find information about important dates, assessment and procedures.
