Apprentice and trainee enrolment guide
You must have the following documents and information to enrol.
1. Current passport (preferred), birth certificate (not an extract) or other accepted documentation to verify your citizenship and to prove your eligibility for a government subsidised place.
You may need the following information to enrol, depending on your circumstances.
2.Centrelink concession card (current Commonwealth Health Care Card, Pensioner Card or Veterans’ Gold Card) if eligible to apply for a fee concession.
3. Transcripts from previous study - 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 may take some weeks to arrive.
If you are enrolling into a government subsidised place, you must complete the LLN, an online English and maths assessment, as soon as possible before you can enrol. To find out if you're in a government subsidised place or a full fee place, check your RMIT offer or enrolment email.
If you have completed the RMIT LLN assessment within the past 2 years, you do not need to complete it again.
Your LLN result will be used to:
- help RMIT identify your educational support needs, and
- determine your eligibility for a VET Student Loan.
It may take up to 24 hours after you receive your enrolment email for you to be able to log in and start the LLN. If you can't log in straight away, continue with Steps 3 - 6 and return to it later.
How to complete the LLN
1. Use a computer or a tablet device, as the screen does not resize for mobile phones.
2. Log in with your username and password.
- Your username is the letter ‘s’ followed by your student number (example: s1234567).Your student number is in your RMIT enrolment email.
- Your password is the letter ‘p’ followed by your date of birth backwards and an exclamation mark (example: p19920428!).
3. Follow the instructions in the Reference Guide (PDF 0.98MB 2p). It will take about 45 minutes to complete each assessment.
It will take up to 48 hours for your results to be registered with RMIT. While you wait, continue with Steps 3 - 6.
It’s a government requirement that you have a USI to enrol in your program. The USI is a reference number that will give you access to an online record of all of your recognised training and qualifications.
- You’ll need your ID ready such as a current passport, full birth certificate or driver’s license.
- Once you’ve created your USI, make a note of it as you’ll need to bring this to your enrolment session.
1. To make enrolment as easy as possible set yourself up for success by:
- using a desktop or laptop computer
- using one of RMIT’s preferred browsers for Enrolment Online e.g. Chrome
- enabling pop-ups in your browser settings - or you won’t be able to complete your enrolment.
2. Log in to Enrolment Online using your RMIT ID and password.
- Your RMIT ID is the letter ‘s’ followed by your student number (example: s1234567).Your student number is in your RMIT enrolment email.
- Your temporary password is the letter ‘p’ followed by your date of birth backwards and an exclamation mark (example: p19920428!).
Change your temporary password as soon as possible to make sure your student account is secure. Find out how at password assistance.
3. Select the Enrol button next to the program you want to enrol in.
If you’re enrolling into a government subsidised place (check your enrolment email for advice), you will be asked to answer some questions to:
- make sure that the program is the most suitable qualification for you, and
- determine if you will need any support during your studies. If applicable, you will receive an email providing links to support resources.
These questions are simple and straight-forward as they relate to your previous education, career goals, access to technology and any special needs that you may have.
You may need to wait until a staff member has reviewed this information before being able to enrol in classes. In some cases, an RMIT staff member will call you to discuss your reasons for undertaking the program. This review may take up to 2 business days.
This step applies if you have been offered a government subsidised place (check your enrolment email for advice).
You will be asked to:
- answer questions about your education history and citizenship to verify your eligibility for a government subsidised place (see tips on how to respond), and
- verify your citizenship - using your current passport number and expiry date, or other documentation.
You’ll need to wait while RMIT assesses your eligibility and contacts you by phone to ask you some questions. Usually this will take up to 48 hours, but it may take longer during our busiest times.
You’ll receive an email to your RMIT student email account when your eligibility has been assessed. You will need to log back in to Enrolment Online to accept your assessment outcome, then you can continue with the enrolment process.
1. Use the RMIT fee finder to get an estimate of your fees.
2. Learn how to apply to be sponsored by your employer.

4. Find out if you’re eligible for a fee concession – this can mean an 80% discount on your tuition fees!
