Welcome back! Are you ready to start the next step in your student journey?
You must re-enrol online through studentConnect. Make sure you enrol in units for both semesters of the academic year. It will help to refer to your study plan or revisit the UWA Handbook for unit codes and availability.
Don’t forget to check your timetable before enrolling!
Your timetable is important because you will need to attend a number of lectures, tutorials, labs, and workshops for each unit. The timetable website lets you see how your potential unit choices could be scheduled; it does not register you for classes. After enrolment you will use the online Class Allocation System, CAS, to register for classes.
If you need a refresher on how to register for classes you may find the information provided by Student Services for first-time users of CAS helpful.
Does your unit show as invalid? Need to change your enrolment? Defer you studies? We have enrolment information to help you.
