Full-fee and industry guide
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.
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.
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.
- 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 provide it as part of the enrolment process.
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.
3. Select the Enrol button next to your program.
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.
Do you have 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 eligible, and you’re enrolling in an eligible program of study, you’ll now be prompted to indicate whether you want to opt-in or opt-out of a VET Student Loan.
If you opt-in and apply for a VET Student Loan, you’ll need to submit your application via the government eCAF portal.
Before you submit your application
Make sure you’re eligible. Go to HELP Loans and VET Student Loans for details.
Have your tax file number ready to enter on your application.
Read VET Student Loan information on the Australian Government website to be aware of your responsibilities when taking out a VET Student Loan.
Make a note to complete all VET Student Loan progression forms sent to you by the Department of Education and Training during your studies. If you miss a progression form, you risk losing your loan!
How to apply
Once you're enrolled, the Department of Education and Training will send an email to your RMIT student email account with the information you need to login and submit your application.
You must submit your application in the eCAF portal before the census date for classes you wish the loan to cover. Check your census dates in Enrolment Online.
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.
