Ready to enrol
Once you’ve accepted your offer and your Notre Dame account has been activated and your profile completed, you’ll be able to enrol in courses (subjects) for the coming semester.
To enrol, follow the steps below:
Step 1 - Review the ‘Enrolment now open' email you received
Refer to the email you recently received detailing the specifics for your study, including:
- Your University ID - you will use this throughout your time at Notre Dame
- Details of your School and Program name
- Details of the courses to enrol in this semester
You will need these details to be able to enrol. If you haven’t received or have lost this email, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org (Fremantle), email@example.com (Sydney), firstname.lastname@example.org (International students) or email@example.com (if you’ve applied to undertake online study).
Step 2 - Confirm the courses you are going to enrol in
Your ‘Enrolment now open’ email contains details of the courses to enrol in this semester.
In most cases, this is enough information for you to be able to proceed with your enrolment. If you have questions, our School staff are here to help you. The contact details for your School are included in your ‘Enrolment now open’ email.
Many Schools are also available via Zoom so that you can have a face-to-face chat. Zoom details are provided in your ‘Enrolment now open’ email. Please download Zoom prior to your session – you can download the Zoom app for PC, Mac, Android or iOS online.
Staff in your School can also answer any questions you may have regarding part-time study, Advanced Standing and other things which may factor into your course selection. We’re here to work with you so that you enrol in the courses best suited to you.
Once you know which courses you’re going to study this semester, it’s time to complete your enrolment.
Note: International students on a valid student visa must enrol in full-time study for the duration of the program.
Step 3 - Complete your enrolment
You will complete your enrolment online through Student Centre.
Before you start, please make sure you have:

Once you have these you can enrol.
Please follow the below steps to enrol:

Once you have completed your enrolment, simply ‘Sign out’ of Student Centre (on the triple bar icon)
The Student Admin team is available to assist should you have any trouble enrolling, however, for academic advice (e.g. which courses to enrol in) you will need to contact your School.

So, now that you’ve enrolled, what’s next?
There is still a lot to acquaint yourself with ahead of the first day of semester. Please take a few minutes to review the below Enrolment FAQs before checking out Section 3 - Timetable & ID Card.
How long is enrolment open for?
You can enrol into each course until teaching begins, however, it’s best to enrol as soon as possible so that you can complete your timetable. The earlier you enrol, the more flexibility you will have to choose your lectures, tutorials, workshops, etc.
Now that I’ve enrolled, what else do I need to know about the requirements of my program?
It’s important that you familiarise yourself with the structure of your program, and the courses that you need to complete to be eligible to graduate upon completion.
The details of your program can be found in the Program Regulations, with brief descriptions of each course being available under the relevant School. Further information regarding each course you enrol in will also be made available on Blackboard.
It’s up to you to make sure that you enrol in the correct courses, but your School will also help you as much as possible. Please contact them should you have any questions.
Timetable & ID Card
Now that you have successfully enrolled in your courses, it’s time to complete your Timetable Sign-up, access your student email account and familiarise yourself with some other important information ahead of Orientation and the commencement of your studies.
Timetable Sign up
Now that you’ve enrolled, you will need to complete your Timetable Sign-up through Allocate+ so that you know which particular sessions (lectures, tutorials, workshops, seminars, etc.) that you’ll be attending, even if you’re not on campus. With the exception of Doctor of Medicine and Higher Degree by Research students, most other students need to complete Timetable Signup.
For further details on Timetable-Sign up please click here.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, much of our teaching will be online for Semester 2 2020, but some classes will take place on Campus. Once you complete your Timetable Sign-up you will be able to tell whether a particular session is on campus, or not. If a session has a venue listed (e.g. ND46/209, NDS5/202) then it’s taking place on campus, otherwise, it will be taking place online. Your School will also provide you with information specific to each of your courses.
Please contact your School should you have any trouble completing your timetable.
N.B. Each venue on campus has been assigned a unique identifier, for example:
- ND46/209 - is building 46 on the Fremantle Campus (ND), Level 2, Room 09
- NDS5/202 - is building 5 on the Sydney Campus (NDS), Level 2, Room 02
Refer ‘Campus Maps’ below for more information
N.B. The Logos Programme (the Core Curriculum undertaken by all Sydney undergraduate students) is not timetabled through Allocate+. Further information on the Logos Programme is available on the Sydney Philosophy & Theology page.
There is more to the Student Centre than simply enrolling in classes. It is also where you can view your personal information, current enrolment and academic history, including your grades. Further information is available on the Student Centre page.
Notre Dame Email Account
Your University email account (accessible here) is one of the primary ways we will communicate with you. As a student, you are required to check your email weekly, and going forward, all emails to / from the University must be via your Notre Dame email account..
Your email account is in the format: ID@my.nd.edu.au (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org), and you access it using the same credentials as Student Centre.
All students should obtain a Notre Dame ID card. Your Student ID also allows you to borrow resources from the library and pay for printing on campus. As the card identifies you as a university student, you can use it to access student discounts, public transport concession, and it’s the preferred form of identification for exams. The Student Admin team on your campus can create your ID card next time you’re on campus.
If you’ve undertaken prior tertiary study, or relevant prior work experience, you may be eligible for Advanced Standing (also referred to as recognition of prior learning, or RPL). This provides credit towards your program, and can save you time and money. Further information is available on the Advanced Standing page and you should also contact your School to discuss.
Most students are required to pay tuition fees for their studies. Further information is available on the Fees page.
e-CAF - Electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (HECS-HELP / FEE-HELP)
eCAF is an electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form that eligible students complete to defer the payment of their tuition fees through HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP.
If you have been offered a Commonwealth Supported Place (CSP), you must complete an eCAF application before the earliest Census Date of your course(s). This applies even if you intend to pay your tuition fees upfront or are enrolled in the Tertiary Pathway Program.
An invitation to complete an eCAF will be emailed to you shortly after you have accepted your offer.
If you are eligible for a FEE-HELP loan to pay for your fees, you will receive an email invitation to submit an eCAF form. If you wish to defer your fees, please complete the application.
To complete the eCAF application, you must have a Tax File Number (TFN), if not, you must apply for one immediately as it can take up to 30 days. Once you have applied, you will receive a Certificate of Application for your TFN and a receipt docket from Australia Post. Please send a copy of these to email@example.com as proof of your application.
For further information regarding eligibility, Government assistance and loan schemes go to http://www.studyassist.gov.au.
For questions specifically relating to your application, please email the Student Fees Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
Key Dates and Calendars
You can find maps of our campuses here:
These maps contain each venue name (e.g. Pioneer House) and number (e.g. NDS5) and can assist you to navigate around campus once you’ve completed your timetable (Refer ‘Timetable Sign-up’, above for more information)
