You can enrol in units online via studentConnect up to the end of week 1 of each semester.

Note: Non-standard teaching periods also have their own teaching period dates, including the 'Last date to add a unit'. Please check the important dates for your enrolled teaching periods.

How to add a unit:

  1. Log on to studentConnect
  2. Under the 'COURSE DETAILS' menu select 'Online Enrolment'
  3. Click "Begin online enrolment'
  4. Select 'Units' from the navigation icons on the right hand side
  5. Type your unit title or unit code into the relevant box
  6. Click 'Search'
  7. Select the unit, teaching period and mode in which you wish to study
  8. Repeat this process for each unit you wish to add

Check your enrolment by selecting 'Statement of Enrolment' or 'Course and Unit' under your 'COURSE DETAILS' menu options. You will have the option of viewing a PDF Statement of Enrolment.

The Class Allocation System (CAS) and Learning Management System (LMS) should automatically sync with any changes you make on studentConnect within 24 hours of enrolling via studentConnect.

Can't add units? There are a few reasons why you may not be able to add units via studentConnect:
Not re-enrolled
You can only make changes to your enrolment online if you have successfully re-enrolled for the current academic year by the deadline. You will see a message on studentConnect if you have missed the deadline and you will need to pay a late fee.

Last date to add a unit has passed
You can only add units online up until the 'last date to add a unit' for the teaching period. In exceptional circumstances you may be permitted to add a unit after the closing date . To apply, complete the online Special Approval form. If approval is granted, your Student Advising Office will contact you with the next steps. Please note, a $50 late fee normally applies.

Note: Late enrolment is not recommended as you may have difficulty catching up or have missed out on team allocations for group work assignments. No late enrolment will be approved after Week 3. 

  1. Ask your unit coordinator if they will support your late enrolment in the unit. If the answer is yes, you can apply for a late enrolment by completing the online Special Approval form
  2. Your Student Office contact you with an outcome and next steps to follow, if approved.
  3. A late unit addition fee of $50 will be added as an encumbrance to your record. You can pay this online.

Cross-institutional, Exchange and Study Abroad students
Once they have initially enrolled, Cross-institutional, Study Abroad and Student Exchange students can't make changes to their UWA enrolment online (this includes units with the prefix: ENRL or EXCH). You will need to change your enrolment manually via a Change of Enrolment form, available from your Student Advising Office in person or via Email Us
Unit not available for online enrolment
Some units may not be available for online enrolment due to quota/venue restrictions or other reasons. Contact your Student Advising Office for advice on whether your unit is available for online enrolment. You may be able to enrol in the unit manually via a Change of Enrolment form, available from your Student Advising Office in person or via Email Us.
If none of the above reasons apply, please contact us via Email Us and we will investigate for you.
