Who can help with planning?
A Faculty Course Adviser can help. You can get course advice by phone, email or in person. They can help with course planning and explain course rules and requirements and help you choose the right units.
Deakin can assist with career planning to help you figure out which course to take, improve your employment skills and more.
Who should re-enrol?
If you are a continuing student and haven't yet completed all your course requirements, you must re-enrol through StudentConnect for the following academic year.
You should re-enrol even if you think you have failed a unit or units.
Discuss your choices with a Faculty course adviser to help you enrol in the units that are right for you.
Intermitting your course or returning from intermission?
If you are currently intermitted and plan to return in 2017 you must re-enrol for 2017 to ensure you keep your place in your course. It is important to re-enrol for both Trimester 1 and Trimester 2 in 2017.
If you have an intermission ending in Trimester 1 in the following year, you should add your units for Trimester 2.
If you plan to intermit, you should submit your request through StudentConnect using the menu option ‘Intermit or discontinue from course’. If you are only intermitting for one study period, make sure you re-enrol for that one.
If you have intermitted for any trimester and then want to return early from intermission, contact your Faculty Course Adviser.
Find out more about how to Intermit or discontinue your course.
Intending to apply for a course transfer?
If you have applied for or intend to apply for a course transfer at the end of the current trimester, still re-enrol in your existing course within the deadlines to make sure you keep your place. If you are approved for a course transfer, your enrolment will be altered when your application is processed.
What if you are a Higher Degree by Research student?
Higher Degree by Research students do not need to re-enrol. Deakin Research will manage this process for you.
What if you have another question we haven’t answered here?
Take a look at our Re-enrolment – frequently asked questions.
What if you just aren’t quite sure about whether to study?
It's best to keep your options open. You can always withdraw from a unit if you need to, but by re-enrolling on time, you won't risk losing your place at Uni.
Keep in mind the dates and deadlines in the 2017 Handbook to withdraw from a unit or course each study period.
Who can help
Set up your timetable
In February 2017, if you are enrolled in campus based units, you can set up your timetable for Classes and Seminars for Trimester 1 2017 through STAR on StudentConnect.
Each study period has a Census Date which is listed in the ‘Dates and deadlines’ for your study period in the 2017 Handbook. The census date is important as it is the last date to finalise aspects of your enrolment and fee obligations. It’s good to remember what this means for you and your enrolment.
Check the Dates and Deadlines for all study period dates (semesters, residential units etc.), University holidays, inter-trimester breaks, exam periods and result release dates.
Check your enrolment
You can view your enrolled units under the 'View Units' tab in StudentConnect to ensure you have finalised your enrolment.
Check your Deakin Card
Get ready to pay fees
From Monday 30 January 2017 you can generate an invoice (see the link under the Fees and Payment heading in StudentConnect) and note the due date for your tuition and Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) if applicable. If you haven't paid your fees by the due date, you may lose your place.
Check your exam locations (Cloud Campus units only)
If you are a Cloud Campus student, you need to check that you're allocated to an off-campus exam location early in the study period.
Commonwealth Assistance Notice (CAN)
Access your Commonwealth Assistance Notice (CAN) by selecting the Commonwealth Assistance Notice (eCAN) link on StudentConnect. CANs at Deakin University are only available online.
Your CAN contains information about your enrolment such as:
- student contribution amounts you have been charged for the units you are enrolled in
- any upfront payments you have made
- any HELP assistance you have used for the trimester study period.
Check your email
Your username, which you set up when you enrolled, is also your Deakin email address. You should check this email address a few times a week. If you have another email account you prefer to use, you can redirect your Deakin email to another account. More at IT Help.
Orientation and start of classes
Trimester 1 2017 starts off with Orientation week from 27 February – 3 March. Week 1 starts on Monday 6 March. Check the Dates and Deadlines for all study period dates (semesters, residential units etc.), University holidays, inter-trimester breaks, exam periods and result release dates.
Buy books and equipment
You can check the textbook requirements for each unit on the DUSA Bookshops Student Booklist. Your faculty may also have given you a list of items you'll need (e.g. uniforms for nursing, lab coats).
Arrange travel and parking
Travel Concession Card
Once you have re-enrolled, you can access your 2017 Travel Concession form through StudentConnect from Wednesday 4 January 2017. If you're eligible, the pre-populated form will be sent to your Deakin email address. It must be printed in colour when lodging your application.
For information on where you can lodge your application and how the concession card can be used visit Public Transport Victoria (link opens new window) .
See parking for availability and buying permits if you need one. You can purchase a general triple trimester or trimester parking permit, student resident permit and orange reserved permit from Student Central.
Take note of important dates
Note down any dates and datelines in the 2017 Handbook relevant for you or your course, including the last day to vary your units, census dates, fee due dates and exam dates for the end of trimester.
