Check-in and enrol

What is Check-in, Enrolment and Orientation?

Check-in

This is the process where you will register your arrival to La Trobe. Check-in can only be done in person and we will request your passport to confirm your identity.

Enrolment

After you have fully accepted your offer, you will receive an email with instructions on how to complete pre-arrival online enrolment. Subjects are not enrolled automatically, you will have to select them according to your study plan. If you have questions along the way, we're here to support you.

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 

It's compulsory to attend the Orientation week. It's full of important sessions and social activities, and 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!
