Step 3: Register details and enrol in units

Using your Monash account, you can now login to register your details in the enrolment system.

Work through this task sequentially - each section has to be completed before the next section is unlocked.

Register your details

You'll need to agree to the education and health cover rules for overseas students. Next, work your way through the Enrolment Summary screen to:

  • update your contact information
  • fill out the enrolment questionnaire

Enrol in units by 20 July

Make sure you click the SUBMIT ENROLMENT button once all units are entered.

Don't worry if you're not 100% sure you have all the right units. If you need to change units, you have until the end of the second week of semester.

Just make sure you're enrolled by the deadline of Friday 20 July.

Enrolment summary screen

View screenshot

Work your way through the first two sections of the Enrolment Summary screen:

  1. Contact details
  2. Enrolment Questionnaire

You need to do each section in order from top to bottom to unlock the next section.

Area of study

View screenshot

You’ll only see this section if your course allows you to nominate:

  • majors
  • extended majors
  • minors
  • specialisations.

Check your course information carefully before nominating an area of study as it’s your responsibility to make sure that your nomination complies with your course requirements.

Nominating an area of study doesn’t automatically enrol you in the units required so you will still need to enter the right units.

Any completed areas of study will appear on your official academic record. If you’re in a comprehensive course, up to two majors (or extended majors) will appear on your graduation certificate (testamur)

Make sure you click the button at the bottom to submit your entries.

Can't see this screen?

If you can't see this section in the Enrolment Summary screen, don't worry; it's not a requirement of your course.

  1. Login to the Web Enrolment System
  2. In the Student Services section, click Submit your photo for an ID card
  3. Scan and submit your passport photo page (page or pages with both photo and information) as proof of your identity
