Re-enrol in your course

You must re-enrol each year to secure a place in your course.

You can re-enrol online, or if required, by completing an enrolment form at VUHQ or an enrolment hub.

Your responsibilities

It is your responsibility to:

  • keep your personal details and enrolment information up to date
  • select units that fit your course structure
  • check whether there are any pre-requisite and co-requisite units you need to satisfy
  • re-enrol for both semesters
  • re-enrol before census and pay fees by the due date (paying after the due date will incur a late fee of $155 being added to your account).

If you are enrolled in a double degree you should seek academic advice from Course & Unit Administrators from each discipline - visit VUHQ if you are not sure who to contact.

Please note: If you re-enrol before your previous semester results are released, we recommend checking your enrolment again once you receive your results. If you fail a unit, you need to find out how this affects your enrolment and progression. Seek advice from your Course & Unit Administrator.

Course has changed (code and/or title)

If your course has changed, and now has a different course code and/or award title, you will receive notification from your college about your options.

You may elect to either stay in your current course, or move into the new course. If you:

  • stay within your current course, you need to notify the college, then proceed to re-enrol for the upcoming semester
  • move into the new course, you need to notify the college and wait for your units to be credited into the new course before you will be able to re-enrol for the upcoming semester.

Selecting units

Before you re-enrol, find out whether or not your chosen units are offered in the upcoming semesters.

We recommend you check:

  • your course delivery plan (to help you select units in the correct order)
  • the 2018 timetable (to see what units are running and when)
  • MyVU (after it opens for online re-enrolment, to confirm your units).

Speak to your Course & Unit Administrator for advice - visit VUHQ if you are not sure who to contact.

How to re-enrol

Online enrolment is open for study periods in the second half of 2018.

Re-enrolment opens at the end of October for upcoming 2019 study periods including Summer school.

When you're ready, go to MyVU > My course > Enrol now and complete all the steps to re-enrol online for Semester 1 and 2.

Make sure you use Google Chrome with popups enabled. You can refer to the online enrolment help and instructions for support.

TAFE students

Students studying certificate I-IV courses, diplomas or advanced diplomas can re-enrol through our TAFE division, Victoria University Polytechnic. You'll be notified about how and when you'll need to re-enrol.

Eligible students re-enrolling into a Certificate I-IV will need to bring their current active concession card if they wish to claim the concession rate on fees.

All students will need to have their Unique Student Identifier (USI) at re-enrolment. If you do not have one, find out how to apply for a USI.

Changing your units

If you're a higher education student you may change your units at any time before the close of the administrative census date. Units can be added up until 11.59pm (23:59) on the close date. Following this time, the system will close for additions.

If required, you may discontinue your units or course without penalty upuntil census date. If you discontinue after the census date, you will receive a fail result and financial penalties.

Students enrolled in First Year Block units can make changes and add a unit up until Thursday in week 1, but have up until census date (Monday or week 2) to drop a unit.

If you add units after this date, you can only do this using a paper unit of study amendment form (with approval from your Course and Unit Administrator). Visit VUHQ if you aren't sure who to contact. Note that you may incur a $155 late fee if you add units after this date.
