All students have to re-enrol in StudentConnect for the following academic year by the deadline.
Timely re-enrolments for students from all Faculties closed on 30 September 2012.
Students who failed to re-enrol in the timely window will be able to re-enrol in the late window which is between 4 October 2012 and 18 November 2012 without penalty.
The very late window for re-enrolment is between 19 November 2012 and 9 December 2012. However, students will receive a $200 late fee.
All students are required to re-enrol in StudentConnect for the following academic year, including:
- students who think they may have failed a unit or units (you should enrol in the units you would like to take and it might be useful to discuss this with a faculty course adviser)
- students who have approved intermission ending in Trimester 1 in the following year still have to enrol for Trimester 2
- if you intermit for any trimester and then want to return early from intermission, you can't do so unless there are places available in that course (please seek advice from your faculty course adviser)
- students who are applying to transfer to another course within Deakin University.
If you don't re-enrol by the deadline, you will incur a $200 late re-enrolment fee or your enrolment may be discontinued.
Go to the 2013 Handbook, enter your course code or name and read the record for your course. You can click on the unit code links to read more about each unit. Note down how many units you have to enrol in per trimester for your course and enrolment status (full time or part time). You have to enrol in units for Trimester 1 and 2 when enrolling. Trimester 3 isn't compulsory but you can select units if you want.
It is important to seek course advice from a faculty course adviser (by phone, email or in person) when planning your enrolment. They can assist with course planning and explain course rules and requirements.
Consider your course requirements
- All courses at Deakin require the completion of a fixed number of credit points.
- Ensure you complete any compulsory core units.
- Check if you need to choose a major sequence (made up of 'unit sets').
- Consider prerequisite units, which must be completed before enrolment in a subsequent unit will be accepted. Rule breaches occur when you don't meet the course or unit rules.
Gather the documents and information you will need to re-enrol
If you are an eligible student, you will need your Tax File Number to request HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP or SA-HELP.

The following short video details the re-enrolment process.
3. Complete your administrative tasks
If you are studying on campus, you can set up your timetable for lectures and tutorials through STAR on StudentConnect. Available from Monday 4 February.
Ensure your Deakin ID Card (Deakin Card) is still valid. If you have lost it, you should report it online or in person at Deakin Central. To find out more about your Deakin Card, visit the Deakin Card website.
Invoices and financial assistance
From Monday 28 January you can generate an invoice (see the link under the Fees and Payment heading) and note the due date for your tuition and Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). If you haven't paid your fees by the due date, you may lose your place.
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.
Books and equipment
Buy any books and equipment you need for your course. You can check the textbook requirements for each unit on the DUSA Bookshop's Student Booklist. Your faculty may also have given you a list of items you'll need (e.g. uniforms for nursing, lab coats).
Travel Concession Card
Once you have enrolled, you can access your 2013 Travel Concession form through StudentConnect from Friday 4 January. 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 please visit the Public Transport Victoria website.
Buy a parking permit if you need one. You can purchase a general triple trimester or trimester parking permit, student resident permit and orange reserved permit from the cashier's office in Deakin Central.
Note down any important dates 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.
Exam location (off-campus students)
If you are an off-campus student, you need to check that you're allocated to an off-campus exam location early in the study period.
