What is Check-in, Enrolment and Orientation?

Check-in

This is the process where you will register your arrival to La Trobe. This will help you activate your student account and create your own password, you will also activate your course enrolment and update your contact details on your student portal. Check-in can only be done in person and we will request your passport to confirm your identity.

Enrolment

After you have checked-in, you will need to enrol in subjects. Subjects are not enrolled automatically, you will have to select them according to your study plan. We will have dedicated Course Advisors from your college to help you with this task.

Once you have enrolled in your subjects, you will have to create your own timetable using Allocate+. Remember that your timetable is not created automatically. Subjects can have different classes (e.g. tutorials, lectures, workshops, etc) and can be taught on different days and times. By allocating yourself to your classes you will confirm your place in a particular class.

Orientation day

International Orientation day is a compulsory session held on only one day during Orientation week. This mandatory session will provide you with important information about your student visa, starting your course, understanding Australian academic culture, keeping yourself safe, your health insurance and more! International Orientation day is different from the other sessions run during Orientation week.
