It might take a couple of days to complete your enrolment - this is because RMIT may need to contact you to validate your citizenship documents and ask you a few questions before you can continue to enrol in classes.

Your patience and persistence will be rewarded when you cross the finish line and become an RMIT student! So, let’s get started.

Expand each section below and follow the instructions to enrol.

You must have the following documents and information to enrol.

1. Current Australian/NZ passport (preferred), or other accepted documentation to complete your citizenship verification.

2. Your program code and student number which is in your RMIT enrolment email.

3. Your Tax File Number (TFN), if eligible to apply for a VET Student Loan.

If you don’t have a TFN, you can apply for one now and supply this before your first class census date.

It’s a government requirement that you have a USI to enrol in a vocational education program. The USI is a reference number that will give you access to an online record of all of your recognised training and qualifications.

  1. You’ll need your ID ready, such as a current passport, full birth certificate or driver’s license.
  2. Once you’ve created your USI, make a note of it as you’ll need to provide it as part of the enrolment process.

Create your USI online.

1. 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 myRMIT, your student portal, using your RMIT ID and password.

  • 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.

3. Log in to Enrolment Online.

4. Select the Enrol button next to the program you wish to enrol in. You can now start to enrol.

You will be prompted to verify your citizenship or residency status.

If you have a current passport or citizenship certificate, you can complete this step instantly when you enrol.

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, but it may take longer during our busiest times.

Got an enrolment information session?

If yes, stop here. After your session, you can complete the remaining steps to finalise your enrolment. 

If no, keep going!

If you are an eligible student enrolling in an eligible program of study, you will be asked to indicate whether you want to take out a VET Student Loan.

You must ensure you first complete the language, literacy and numeracy (LLN) assessment as part of the VET student loan eligibility requirements.

If you indicate you do want a loan, an invitation email will be sent to your student email account from the Government with instructions on how to apply.

Under 18? 

If you are under 18 years of age at the time of enrolling and want to take out a VET Student Loan, you need to complete and email the VET Student Loans Parental Consent Form to

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