Plan your study

Before you re-enrol it's important to plan your study to make sure you study the right courses at the right time so you can finish your degree when you plan to.

Follow the Planning your study instructions to plan your courses for the upcoming semesters/trimesters/sessions.

If you need assistance, contact Student Central.

New students

Once you have applied and received your offer of a place from USC, follow the steps to Get Started at USC to respond to your offer, plan your study and enrol in your courses.

Headstart, Cross-institutional and Visiting students

Your course enrolment will be completed for you. Once the timetable is released for viewing, complete and submit a Class preference form to select your class times.

Step 1 - Select your courses

Check the academic calendar to view when course selection opens.

Once course selection is open for your study period:

  1. Login to USC Central
  2. Select 'Enrolment', then 'Enrol/Drop/Swap'
  3. Search for courses by entering the term, course code and study location
  4. Add a course to your enrolment by ticking the box to select it and click 'Add enrolment'

Repeat the above steps to enrol in each of your courses. Your selected courses will be displayed under the 'Manage my courses' heading. It is recommended you enrol in your courses for the full calendar year.

Selecting your courses during the on-time enrolment period gives you access to select your class times (step 2) earlier than those who don't.

Note: If you select a course but don't select a class time (step 2) or drop it from your enrolment before census date, you'll still incur the fee for the course. You can swap or add courses up until the end of week 2, and remove courses from your enrolment up until census date. View key dates in the academic calendar.

View the instructions to complete Step 1 in the video or the Enrol in your courses PDF guide.

Step 2 - Enrol in your classes

You can swap or add courses up until the end of week 2, and remove courses from your enrolment up until census date. View key dates in the academic calendar.
