Understand your program rules
Please view a degree plan for your program and ensure you understand the program rules. Some of our degrees have compulsory courses that you must study, others allow you to choose your specialisations (i.e. major and/or minor) and some are a combination of these structures.
The Undergraduate Enrolment page has all of the information you need to help you choose the right courses including:
- Degree Plans
- Major and Minor course lists
- Approved Elective course lists
- A list of all courses offered by the Faculty
- Contact details for our Discipline Advisors
- Information about Language enrolments
The Faculty will post you enrolment information. Please contact the Faculty Office if you have any queries.
Please see our Postgraduate Enrolment page.
Search for courses with Course Planner and plan your timetable
Once you have an idea about the types of courses you need to choose, use the Course Planner to view the following course details:
- A course description
- Class times and locations - there may be several types of classes for a course such as lectures, tutorials and practicals
- The semester in which the course is held
- Pre-requisites, assumed knowledge and restrictions
- Fee information.
Use the information in the course planner and the Class Planner Worksheet to build your timetable. Fill in the 'Enrolment' class first, as these times are often fixed; this is normally a lecture. Then you can choose from the list of 'Related' classes, selecting the time that works best around your fixed classes and your lifestyle. Some courses may have more than one 'Related Class' e.g. a tutorial and a workshop. To assist with the process later on, write down the 'Enrolment' class number for each course on your worksheet.
You should plan your timetable and enrol for both semesters at the beginning of the year.
Log in to Unified and complete your enrolment checklist via Access Adelaide.
Unified lets you access your email, calendar, MyUni and Access Adelaide through a central website with a single login. You will need to login to Unified and then navigate to Access Adelaide to begin adding courses.
Before you can enrol you must complete each item on a checklist that requires you to add or update information about yourself. Write in plain English, and use correct spelling.
Add courses in Access Adelaide
When your program opens for enrolment, you can begin adding courses. The date from which you can enrol depends on your program and whether you are a new or continuing student. Find out when you can enrol by checking the Enrolment Open Times.
To add courses, you will need to select 'Enrolment' from the 'Student' menu on the left. You enrol one semester at a time. Select the semester you wish to enrol into.
You can then enter the 'Enrolment' class number you wrote on your Class Planner Worksheet, or search for the course if you don't know the number. Once the enrolment class is entered, you will be given the option to choose your desired 'Related' class. In some cases you may be automatically enrolled into a related class and this will be identified on the screen.
Select Save after each course if you are happy with your choices. Continue to enrol until you've finished adding all of your classes for the semester.
Solve any enrolment errors
You may receive an error message when trying to enrol online for a number of reasons includng full classes, timetable clashes, unit overloads and failed pre-requisites
Please read about the different types of enrolment errors that may occur and how to avoid them.
For assistance with resolving enrolment errors, please contact the Faculty Office and quote the 'Enrolment Request ID' number, e.g. 0003230098.
View your timetable and update your student ID card
Once you have added your courses, you should view your timetable and print it out. This is only a weekly timetable. Some classes may not appear in week 1, 2 or 3 because they do not start until later in the semester. Click the across arrow to check.
You should also print out your 'Enrolment List' (select printer friendly version) from the top menu bar. You will need this to update your student ID card. Continuing students will require a sticker update to their existing card, while new students (commencing students) can collect their first card. Please visit Card Services at the University Contact Centre.
