How to enrol in summer and winter units

Course and unit rules

When considering taking a summer or winter unit, it's your responsibility to check the University Handbook to ensure the unit counts toward your current degree. Also make sure you have met any pre or corequisite requirements.

If you're waiting on results for a prerequisite unit, you may enrol in the higher-level unit. If you fail the prerequisite unit, you should check your enrolment details, as enrolment for this unit will be invalid. See failed and invalid units.

To study units from another faculty, you need approval from the teaching faculty first, except when the unit is:

  • core to your degree
  • or taught by the Information Technology or Business and Economics faculties.

How to enrol in summer and winter units

Check the Handbook to see summer and winter units on offer and choose units that will count toward your course. You can enrol in some summer and winter units using the Web Enrolment System (WES). If you can't enrol in the unit in WES, you need to:

  1. Get an Enrolment Amendment form from your faculty office (except Law and Business School units - see next section).
  2. Get faculty approval from the faculty teaching the unit before submitting the form to your course managing faculty.
  3. Get timetable information from faculty and unit information or from the unit coordinator.

Once your form is processed, your enrolment in the unit will appear in WES.

Monash Business School units
Some summer and winter units will have a separate online application process. Please complete this process providing any required documentation.

If you cannot enrol in WES, please submit a request into ask.monash. If you are not a Business School student please provide approval from your home faculty.

Faculty approval

Get approval for unit enrolment before the enrolment cut-off date. See the relevant faculty in faculty and unit information.

Discontinuation

You can discontinue some summer and winter units in the Web Enrolment System (WES). If WES will not allow you to discontinue, you must submit an Enrolment Amendment form to your course managing faculty. Discontinuation dates (and financial and academic penalties) may vary depending on the semester offering period and the unit teaching start and end dates. See faculty and unit information.

Faculty responsibilities

Each faculty:

  • nominates the units (if any) offered during the summer and winter semester and the fee type
  • allows enrolment through WES, or accepts and processes your enrolment amendment form if your enrolment is approved
  • lets you know teaching times, locations and teaching materials
  • publishes unit discontinuation dates. See faculty and unit information
  • notifies you if a unit is cancelled due to low enrolment numbers.
