Semester 1 Preference Entry Mode in Allocate+ opens on Monday 18 January

Preference Entry Mode will be open in Allocate+ for Semester 1, 2021 timetable preferences from 10am, Monday 18 January until 3pm, Friday 29 January.  

The timetable will then be closed until it reopens in Allocation Adjustment Mode on Thursday 4 February, at times staggered by the school each subject belongs to. Keep an eye on our timetable dates page for updates on these opening times.

Before you can choose your preferences, make sure you’re enrolled in your 2021 subjects

Need help enrolling? See our video or step-by-step guide for detailed instructions on how to enrol via StudentOnLine.

You can also see the steps for enrolling in electives and troubleshoot any enrolment issues using the Can’t enrol in StudentOnLine guided assist.

After you’ve enrolled, you may need to wait an hour or so for your newly enrolled subjects to show up in Allocate+, so try again later if you can’t see them straight away.

Do you receive government benefits? You must update Services Australia (also known as Centrelink) of any changes to your study load (e.g. changing from a full-time load to part-time) as soon as possible. You can read our FAQ for more detailed info.

Choosing your preferences in Allocate+

You can log into Allocate+ any time between 10am, Monday 18 January and 3pm, Friday 29 January and nominate your class time preferences.

Preference Entry Mode is not first in first served, so you’ll have the same chance of being allocated into your preferred classes as anybody else. This also means that the system can’t guarantee that you will get your highest preference.

Delivery of Semester 1, 2021 subjects and online classes

We will continue to offer some classes online (particularly lectures), but we are planning for the return of more face-to-face classes in Semester 1, 2021. Please monitor your student email and the LMS for updates.

Generally, you will not need to allocate to online-only classes (OL code) unless there is a scheduled component (e.g. an introductory lecture). If you do not need to allocate to an online activity, this will be indicated with the text ‘No group available’. If your subject is delivered in ‘Blended Mode’ (BL code in the timetable) with scheduled times for classes, then you will still need to allocate to the the subject (regardless of whether it’s online or on-campus).

We are prioritising student and staff safety and working within the guidelines provided by the Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services. For more information, check the COVID-19 Student FAQs
