If you enrol in additional units while Preference Entry mode is open, you will need to login to STAR again and enter preferences for your newly enrolled units. If you enrol in additional units during Allocation Adjustment mode you will need to login to STAR and register based on remaining available timeslots.
If you withdraw from a unit you will be automatically withdrawn from all classes associated with that unit of study.
If you perform a course transfer and the units you are transferring to are identical to your original units of study you will not need to register again for your classes.
4. What is a section?
Sections are used when students are required to attend two or more particular repeating activities. For example, if a student allocates themselves to a section which contains a tutorial and a practical, they will be required to attend both of these activities at the given times. This tutorial and practical are referred to as a section.
Enter a minimum of 10 preferences (if available) by placing the number 1 to 10 in the box to the left of the section name (see example below).
Activities that have the number 1 in the box below the activity name (e.g. LEC, TUT) indicate that this is the only option available for that section. You will be automatically allocated to all classes within a section that have the number 1.
Sometimes a section may also contain activities where there is a choice of times. If this is the case the boxes below the activity name (e.g. LEC, TUT) will be blank. In addition to putting a preference beside each section you are also required to put in a preference for that particular activity.
In the following example there is a choice of lecture times. You must put a number 1 and 2 indicating your preferred lecture time.
You can view your timetable under the 'My Timetable' link directly after the sort is completed and Allocation Adjustment opens. Check the STAR timeline to view when Allocation Adjustment opens for the current trimester.
At the close of Allocation Adjustment mode a forced sort will be run to assign any unallocated students to remaining available timeslots.
STAR will only display units that have scheduled classes. Units that are offered in the off campus mode or are offered online will not be visible on STAR as you are not required to attend classes.
An automatically generated email will be sent to all affected students if:
a) there is a change in activity start time
b) there is a change of day or
c) the class has been cancelled.
Emails are only generated during Allocation Adjustment mode. You will not be notified of any changes to the timetable during Preference Entry mode.
Note: Students should regularly check their timetables especially in the lead-up and first few weeks of teaching.
If you need assistance with STAR, you can contact Customer Service.
