Start creating your timetable
You can begin creating your timetable from 10am, Monday 25 November
After you've enrolled, you can login to Allocate+ and enter your preferences for class times.
TIP: Changes in the Web Enrolment System may take up to two hours to appear in Allocate+. This applies to newly enrolled units.
When you login, you'll see a list of your units. For each unit, there's a list of activity (class) types, such as lecture or tutorial. Select each one and add up to six timeslot preferences. If you see Auto allocated this means there was only one time-slot for the activity, so you don't get a choice.
You can enter and adjust your preferences until preference entry closes at 5pm, Monday 27 January. After this, the system sorts the preferences to give you a workable timetable.
From 10am, Tuesday 4 February, Allocate+ reopens and you'll get the chance to make some final changes during the adjustment period.
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.
Off-campus don't need to create a timetable if you're not attending classes.
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.
