Start creating your timetable
If you enrol before 20 June 10am
After you've enrolled, you can login to Allocate+ and enter your preferences for class times.
When you log in, you'll see a list of your units. For each unit, you'll see a list of activity (class) types such as lecture or tutorial. Select each one and add up to six time preferences. If you see 'Auto allocated' this means there was only one time-slot for the activity.
You can enter and adjust your preferences until preference entry closes at 10am on Tuesday 20 June. After this, the system sorts the preferences to give you a workable timetable.
From 10am on Tuesday 27 June, Allocate+ reopens and you'll get the chance to make some final changes during the adjustment period.
Enrolling after 20 June: Mid-year and international students
If you enrol after 20 June, you can create your timetable into Allocate+ after it opens on 27 June at 10am. You do this by selecting from the available activity (class) times.
Allocate+ will temporarily close between 20 - 27 June then again from 14 - 18 July. For full details, see Allocate+ dates.
Some courses have a set timetable, so some students don't have to add their class activities. You'll only be able to view the timetable, not change it - this applies to Parkville students.
The system will close, sort and re-open. Check the system opening and closing dates.
Login to Allocate+ using your Monash username and password.
Help with creating your timetable
When you login, your units will be listed on the left-hand side.
Each unit has activities underneath (lecture, tutorial, etc.). It's these activities that you need to allocate preferred class times.
Units with a green tick have been allocated for you by your faculty. Those with yellow have allocations pending approval. Units marked with red need to be allocated.
You need to choose each activity with a red status, and put your preferred class times in order of 1 (most preferred time) to least preferred. The system will tell you how many preferences you need to enter.
Near the top right of the screen you can switch to calendar view or back to grid view.
Don't forget to save your preferences before moving on to the next activity. Ensure all class activities for your units have been allocated. You get another chance to change your preferred times once the system sorts then reopens for the adjustment period.
