Information to help you enrol in your course and choose your units in StudentConnect.

How to enrol

Before you enrol

We recommend you plan your course using the University Handbook and a course map. There are a few steps in the online enrolment process and it may take up to 30 minutes.

Make sure you enrol by the date in your offer email and finalise your units as soon as possible as there are cut off dates for enrolment.

How to enrol in StudentConnect

When you go into StudentConnect you must complete all the steps for your enrolment to be valid, be sure to hit ‘finish enrolling’ and see a receipt at the end. The receipt will also be sent to your Deakin email and ensures that the changes you made were saved. If you don't see the receipt, check that you've completed all steps below, or contact Student Central.

The steps for enrolling in StudentConnect are configured to the type of place, your fee arrangements and your course. In general they are:

  1. Agreeing to the terms and conditions of enrolment at Deakin
  2. Adding/confirming your details
    • Personal profile/course details
    • Your preferred name and address
    • Statistics about you – government stats
    • Unique Student Identifier (USI) – for domestic students to confirm their Commonwealth supported place (CSP) if applicable, and to apply for HECS-HELP, FEE-HELP or OS-HELP (as applicable). You’ll need to have your USI ready.
    • Commonwealth Assistance form – for domestic students to confirm their Commonwealth supported place (CSP) if applicable, and to apply for HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP (as applicable). You’ll need to have your Tax File Number ready.
    • SA-HELP to defer the Student Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF) – eligible domestic students only
  3. Enrolment
    • Major, minor or specialisation selection (which will only appear if required for your course).
    • Unit enrolment (to search, add, change or withdraw from a unit). Add the units you want to enrol in.
      Find the unit/s through the search. Make sure you select the right study period (e.g. Tri1), unit code (e.g. ALL101), campus of offer (e.g. B = Burwood) and mode of delivery (e.g. On a campus or online. Online units have a mode of 'X' in StudentConnect). Add the correct units to your ‘basket’ as you go, until you have them all listed.
  4. Finalise enrolment – Here’s where you hit ‘finish enrolling’.
  5. Get your receipt of enrolment.
