You need the following documents and information to enrol.

1. Current Australian/NZ passport (preferred), citizenship certificate or other acceptable documents to prove your citizenship or residency status.

If you have a current passport or citizenship certificate, you can verify your citizenship instantly when you enrol. If you use other approved documentation, it may take up to 48 hours before you can complete your enrolment. For details, see Citizenship verification.

2. Your program code and student number which you’ll find in your RMIT enrolment email.

3. Your Tax File Number (TFN), if eligible to apply for a HELP loan. If you don’t have a Tax File Number already, you can still apply for a HELP loan when you enrol and provide your TFN online later, as long as it’s before the census date.

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.

1. Set yourself up to enrol 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.

  • Your RMIT ID (username) is the letter 's' followed by your student number (excluding any additional letters). Eg: 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. You can use your new password to access all RMIT systems, including your student email account.

3. Select the Enrol button next to your program.

Before you add your classes, you will be asked to accept RMIT’s terms and conditions, verify your citizenship, fill in your personal details and provide statistical information.

If you have a current passport or citizenship certificate, you can verify your citizenship instantly. If you use other documentation, you will be asked to email a scanned copy or photo of your document using your RMIT student email account. You will receive an email when you can continue to enrol - usually this will take up to 48 hours. 

For details, see Citizenship verification.

You can save your progress and come back to it later by selecting Save for later.
