Timetabling

The majority of Higher Education programs use the Student Timetabling System (STS). Go to the Student Timetabling System web page to access timetabling information.

If your program is taught by a Vocational Education (VE) school then please go to the Vocational Education timetabling website.

Material fees

Some courses and programs have material fees (fees for field trips, goods or services) associated with them. In most cases these charges are not compulsory, but are levied by the teaching school for materials they purchase on your behalf for use in your studies. Go to the Material Fees web page to check the material fees for your program and courses.

Enrolment

For more information about enrolment at RMIT University, please go to the Enrolment home page.

*Semester 1 classes generally commence in February and Semester 2 classes generally commence in July. Please contact your school for more information about specific class start days.

Policies
