Use myTimetable to select class preferences and view your personal class timetable.

For higher education classes, timetabling works off the preferential model. This means you get to indicate your preferred classes, then the system allocates you to classes, then finally, you can adjust your timetable.

The process is easy: just log in to myTimetable (see above) then follow the steps below.

Step 1. Plan your timetable

Semester/term When to complete this step
Semester 1 2024 From 10am Monday 4 December 2023
Semester 2 2024 From 10am Monday 27 May 2024

Before classes start, you can view the upcoming semester's timetable in read only mode. You can’t allocate yourself to classes during this period, but you can see all class times and locations, and plan which classes you’d like to be in.

How to see class times and locations

  1. Find your courses listed in the Enrolment panel on the left side of the screen of myTimetable
  2. Click on each class (TUT tutorial, PRA practical, WRK workshop, etc.) to see times and locations.

Helpful info – How to read class locations and other room numbers at RMIT
All rooms at RMIT are numbered in the following way: Building number. Floor number. Room number. That means, if the location is 080.04.020, it's building 80, level 4, room 20. For more information, go to Class timetable FAQs.

Do you see More information for some courses? That means classes for that course aren’t scheduled in myTimetable. Check your course guide for more information or contact Student Connect.

Are courses in your Enrolment panel missing or incorrect? Go to Class timetable FAQs to find out what to do.

Step 2: Enter your preferences

Semester/term When to complete this step
Semester 1 2024 10am Thursday 25 January - 9pm Sunday 11 February 2024
Semester 2 2024 10am Thursday 11 June - 5pm Sunday 23 June 2024

You can enter your preferences anytime during the preference entry period. You will not have a better chance of being allocated to a class because you enter your preferences at the beginning of the period, rather than at the end. You can change your preferences as many times as you like during the preference entry period.

How to enter your preferences

  1. In the Enrolment panel, click on a class that has a status of PREFERENCE
  2. Use the dropdown boxes to number each class; with 1 being your most preferred class, 2 being your second most preferred class, etc
  3. Click Save. When you’ve successfully entered your preferences for a class, the icon next to the class in the Enrolment panel will change from red (not allocated) to orange (pending)
  4. Repeat for each class with a status of PREFERENCE

You’ll see a percentage next to each class. This indicates how popular that class is; the higher the percentage, the less chance you have of getting a place in that class.

If there is only one option for a class, the system will allocate you to the class automatically. You don’t need to enter a preference.

If you don’t enter preferences during this period, you will be automatically allocated to classes after students who have entered preferences.

Helpful info – When the preference entry period closes, classes temporarily disappear from myTimetable
After the preference entry period has closed, your classes will not appear in myTimetable while RMIT allocates students to classes. You can view your classes again when Review and allocation adjustment opens (see below).

Step 3: Review and adjust your timetable

Semester/term When to complete this step
Semester 1 2024 10am Monday 19 February - 5pm Monday 8 April 
Semester 2 2024 10am Monday 1 July 2024 - Closing date to be confirmed

Once you have been allocated to classes and your timetable becomes available, you can review and adjust your timetable during the allocation adjustment period. Allocation adjustment happens on a first-in, first-served basis, so it’s a good idea to log in early.

How to review and adjust your timetable

  1. In the Enrolment panel, find any class with a status of SELECT (this means you haven’t been allocated to a class and must select one) or ADJUST (this means you can change from your allocated class to another class, assuming there are available places).
  2. Click on the class with a status of SELECT or ADJUST and the class options will display
  3. To select or adjust a class, click the blue Select button next to your desired class. You can’t select a class with a red Clash button or red Full button
  4. Repeat this process for each class. When there is a green tick next to each activity in the current semester, you are finished

Is the class you want full? Go to Class timetable FAQs to find out how to request a place in a full class.

View your personal class timetable

All done! You can now view your personal timetable in myTimetable by clicking Timetable in the menu bar. You can also print and share your timetable using the icons, or feed your timetable into your calendar. Go to Class timetable FAQs for more information.
