Class timetables in 2021

Your classes in myTimetable may look different in Semester 1 2021 due to some classes being on campus and others online. Find out how to read your timetable in 2021.


How to timetable


For higher education classes, timetabling works of the preferential model. This means you get to indicate your preferred classes, then the system allocates you to classes, then lastly, you can adjust your timetable.

The process is easy, just log in to myTimetable then follow the steps below.

Step 1: Plan your timetable

  When to complete this step
Semester 1 2021 From 10am Tuesday 22 December 2020
Semester 2 2021 To be announced

Before classes start, you can view the upcoming semester's timetable in read only mode. You can’t allocate yourself to classes during this period, but you can see all class times and locations, and plan which classes you’d like to be in.


How to see class times and locations:

  1. Find your courses listed in the Enrolment panel on the left side of the screen.

  2. Click on each class (tutorial, practical, etc) to see times and locations

Do you see More information for some courses? That means classes for that course aren’t scheduled in myTimetable. Check your course guide for more information or contact RMIT Connect.

Are courses in your Enrolment panel missing or incorrect? Find out what to do.


Step 2: Enter your preferences

  When to complete this step
Semester 1 2021 10am Friday 29 January - 5pm Monday 8 February 2021
Semester 2 2021 To be announced

Note: You can enter your preferences anytime during the preference entry period. You will not have a better chance of being allocated to a class because you enter your preferences at the beginning of the period, rather than at the end. You can change your preferences as many times as you like during the preference entry period.


How to enter your preferences:

  1. In the Enrolment panel, click on a class that has a status of PREFERENCE

  2. Use the dropdown boxes to number each class; with 1 being your most preferred class, 2 being your second most preferred class, etc.

  3. Click Save. When you’ve successfully entered your preferences for a class, the icon next to the class in the Enrolment panel will change from red (not allocated) to orange (pending).

  4. Repeat for each class with a status of PREFERENCE.

You’ll see a percentage next to each class. This indicates how popular that class is; the higher the percentage, the less chance you have of getting a place in that class.

If there is only one option for a class, the system will allocate you to the class automatically. You don’t need to enter a preference.

If you don’t enter preferences during this period, you will be automatically allocated to classes after students who have entered preferences.

After the preference entry period has closed, myTimetable will be unavailable while RMIT allocates students to classes. 


Step 3: Review and adjust your timetable

  When to complete this step
Semester 1 2021 10am Tuesday 16 February - 5pm Monday 15 March 2021

Deadline extended! The deadline to allocate or adjust classes has been extended to 5pm Friday 19 March 2021 for all higher education students
Semester 2 2021 To be announced

Once you have been allocated to classes and your timetable becomes available, you can review and adjust your timetable during the allocation adjustment period. Allocation adjustment happens on a first-in, first-served basis, so it’s a good idea to log in early.


How to review and adjust your timetable:

  1. In the Enrolment panel, find any class with a status of SELECT (this means you haven’t been allocated to a class and must select one) or ADJUST (this means you can change from your allocated class to another class, assuming there are available places).

  2. Click on the class with a status of SELECT or ADJUST and the class options will display.

  3. To select or adjust a class, click the blue Select button next to your desired class. You can’t select a class with a red Clash button or red Full button.

  4. Repeat this process for each class. When there is a green tick next to each activity in the current semester, you are finished.

Is the class you want full? Find out how to request a place in a full class.
