Re-enrolment for research students


A research year is from 1 January - 31 December. We email you in September advising you to enrol using WES or a Course Enrolment form from your faculty.

Research candidates need to re-enrol if you:

  • plan to continue study in the following year
  • are currently on intermission (study leave) but will return to study in the following year
  • will not submit a thesis before 21 December.

Re-enrolment dates and timeline

Re-enrolment 10 Oct - 30 Nov 2016
Timetable for the following year opens in Class Timetable 11 Nov 2016
Late re-enrolment includes a late fee 1 - 9 Dec 2016

Do not leave re-enrolment until the last day because:

  • you may need to contact your faculty for course advice
  • we will not waive the late enrolment fee due to WES access problems.

Mid-year re-enrolment

Your faculty will contact you in May or June about mid-year re-enrolment.

Steps to re-enrol

  1. Check your course requirements and seek course advice
  2. Use WES to re-enrol. For help, see WES instructions for research students

You get a transaction number for successful re-enrolment (beginning with U). We send this to your Monash email account. Keep this number as proof of your re-enrolment. If you do not receive a transaction number, you have not enrolled correctly.

Course and unit information

It's your responsibility to choose units that comply with your course requirements and to re-enrol on time. For information and advice:

Use the Handbook to investigate your unit options and see your faculty re-enrolment information below.

Debts or penalties

We will not permit you to re-enrol if have any outstanding debts to the University. We will charge a fee for late re-enrolment if your encumbrance isn't lifted in time. See fee non-payment (encumbrance). If you have a scholarship, it may be suspended.
