Step 1. Collect your documents and information
You must have the following documents and information to successfully enrol.
a. Passport, birth certificate or documents to verify your citizenship
You will need your current Australian/New Zealand passport (preferred), Australian citizenship certificate, birth certificate or other approved documentation to verify your citizenship. You'll need the same documents to prove your eligibility for a government subsidised place (see How to enrol Part 2, Step 3)
IMPORTANT: If you used a different name to apply to RMIT, i.e. not your full legal name as it appears on your document, you’ll have the chance to update it when you log in to Enrolment Online.
If your names don't match, you won't be able to enrol.
Find out how to update your legal name and preferred name options.
b. Know your Student ID (student number)
Your Student ID (also called your RMIT ID) is the letter 's' followed by your student number (excluding any additional letters), eg: s1234567.
You'll find it in your offer email.
c. Set up and check your student email
The University’s email provider is Microsoft Outlook. Log in to your RMIT email via Outlook.
Your email is your student ID followed by @student.rmit.edu.au
For example: firstname.lastname@example.org
New students: Your temporary password is the letter 'p' followed by your date of birth backwards, with an exclamation mark '!' at the end.
Example: If your date of birth is 8 April 1998, then your password is p19980408!
Returning students: Your password is the last password you set while studying at RMIT. We recommend resetting your password if you don't remember it.

d. Centrelink Concession Card (if eligible)
If you’re enrolling in a Certificate I–IV program, you can use your current Commonwealth Health Care Card, Pensioner Card or Veteran’s Gold Card to apply for a VE fee concession.
e. Transcripts from previous study (if applying for credit)
You'll need your transcripts if you want to apply for credit.
Give yourself plenty of time to get the documents you need - if you’re applying for a passport or concession card, it can take some weeks to arrive.
