Course Enrolment Guide
The Course Enrolment Guide is designed to help you enrol in the right units for your course.
How to Select Units and Enrol
Make sure you have read your course rules in the Handbook and that you are familiar with the rules and structure of your course. You should refer to the entry for the year you commenced your course. The Handbook provides detailed information about requirements for completion, exit points, any available majors, minors or specialisations, core curriculum units and descriptions of units. It is your responsibility to ensure you enrol in the correct units for your course.
Decide on your major, minor or specialisation (if applicable). Check below to see if there are any special requirements for this course.
Read the course map (link below). Maps may vary depending on the campus and the year you started your course so make sure you refer to the correct map.
Next up, check the elective units offered at your campus this year. Pay attention to prerequisite requirements. These are noted in your course map and in the Handbook. If there are any additional unit requirements for your course they will be listed below. Not all courses have elective units.
Head over to your Student Portal. Here you can click on My Account, then My Enrolment to see step-by-step instructions on how to enrol in your units. You must enrol for the whole academic year if you commence in Semester 1 or if you are re-enrolling. You can change your enrolment up until the census date for each semester or professional term. See the Academic Calendar for key dates.
Course Enrolment Guides and course maps can change so you should check this website for the latest updates. Additional information from your School, Faculty and the University will be sent to your ACU student email address so make sure you’ve got it set up and that you check it regularly. All your email communication with University staff must be sent from your ACU student email account.
Special Requirements for this Course
There are no special requirements for this course.
Students must complete 20cp of Electives in their Diploma. Please check the course rules in the Handbook for the list of approved Electives.
Please note that study modes and unit availability are subject to change and not all units are on offer at all times. You can enrol in any offered mode of a unit (Attendance, Multi-mode or Online), regardless of how or where you are enrolled in your course.
Minimum enrolment numbers apply to all units. The University reserves the right to cancel units with low enrolment numbers. Students will be advised of cancellations prior to the start of semester and offered an alternative unit if one is available.
Credit / Recognition of Prior Learning
If you have already studied at university or have significant relevant work experience, you can apply for credit towards your ACU course. Credited units replace units you would otherwise study, so you might be able to finish your course earlier. You can apply for credit towards your ACU course by completing an Application for Credit / Recognition of Prior Learning form. The form should be submitted no later than the census date in the first semester of your enrolment in the course. The census date is the last day you can make changes to your student enrolment before you become committed to your fees.
Credit can only be granted only for study completed within the last 10 years.
Please contact the Course Coordinator, Ms Sue Woods, for course advice.
