How to enrol and next steps

  • Check the University Handbook for an overview of your course structure (also known as a 'study plan'). Take the time to understand the structure as some course structures can be complicated. If you're starting an undergraduate course and have a major in mind, have a look at the prerequisite subjects you might need to do in your first year.
    Note: A typical full time study load (or 'equivalent full time study load' EFTSL) is four subjects in Semester 1, and four subjects in Semester 2 (a total of eight subjects over the academic year).
  • Use La Trobe’s Study Plan Guides tool to assist you with visualising your course enrolment. The Study Plan Guides tool is available to support students starting a new undergraduate course in 2022 with their enrolment.
  • If your course requires electives, check the Handbook to find suitable elective subjects.See also: Choosing subjects and electives
  • Write down the subject codes you want to study – these will be useful when you're enrolling.

  • When you know what to enrol into for the calendar year, log back into StudentOnLine and select the Enrolment tab.
  • Choose your subjects for the calendar year. It's easier if you know the subject code when you're searching for subjects. You only need to search for elective subjects, as the core subjects will pre-fill.
  • If you're an undergraduate student, you'll need to complete the online Academic Integrity and Wominjeka La Trobe Modules.
  • Once you've chosen your subjects, tick the box next to each subject.
  • Click Enrol to confirm.

Graduate Research Students: you are not able to self enrol in subjects. If coursework is a compulsory part of your degree, the Graduate Research School will enrol you in the relevant subjects prior to the start of semester. If you are interested in enrolling in elective subjects, please complete the Add or Remove Subjects form.
