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 must verify your citizenship before you can enrol. You will need your current Australian/New Zealand passport (preferred), Australian citizenship certificate, birth certificate or other approved documentation to verify your citizenship.
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.
Your Student ID is in your offer email from RMIT.
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: email@example.com
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. Tax File Number (if eligible)
You'll need your Tax File Number (TFN) if eligible to apply for a VET Student Loan. Your TFN must validate on your loan application. Find out how to validate your TFN with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) now.
It’s easy to apply for a TFN online, but it can take up to 30 days, so apply now if you don’t have one.
