FAQs

Why can’t I see the timetable?

If you cannot see your courses in the timetable then it is not yet available. If you are a new student commencing in February 2021, please ensure you select classes belonging to class section SC21. These courses were preselected for you so that your classes will not clash.
 

My courses weren’t preselected for me. How do I make sure they don’t clash?

If your courses have not been pre-selected for you in EOL then please carefully follow the instructions from your Program Coordinator regarding which classes to enrol in.
 

I have accidentally enrolled in classes that clash – what do I do?

Please check your timetable again at least two weeks before the start of your classes. If you find that any of your classes clash, you will need to drop the incorrect class and enrol in a replacement class. Please contact your Program Coordinator to confirm which classes to drop and add. Your Program Coordinator is Namrita Kadalbajoo and their email address is namrita.kadalbajoo@rmit.edu.au.
 

If you can’t see the courses that you should be selecting, please contact Academic Services via the RMIT Connect Student Portal.
