Three steps to timetabling: plan, enter your preferences, review and adjust if required.

Preferential class allocation

The preferential entry mode provides you with the opportunity to indicate your preferred classes during the advertised preference entry period.

The system will work to sort all of your preferences in order to minimise clashes before reopening for allocation adjustment.

Plan your 2019 class timetable

26 November 2018

myTimetable is open for you to view your personalised timetable in ‘read only’ mode.

Your courses are listed in the enrolment panel on the left side of the screen. If the list is incorrect, check your enrolment online or with RMIT Connect.

This mode allows students to look at their timetable and view set locations, times and dates.  No changes can be made in this mode.

Enter your preferences in myTimetable

9am, 29 January – 5pm, 11 February 2019

Log in to myTimetable and select your class preferences.

Next to each available activity a numbered percentage will be displayed.
The percentage will indicate how popular a time slot is, the higher the percentage the less chance of getting that time as your first preference.

Place your preferred class times in order from 1 being the most preferred. The number of preferences you are required to enter will be clearly indicated on myTimetable.

If there is only one option for an activity the system will allocate you automatically.

Don’t forget to save your preferences before moving onto the next course.

Your timetable is subject to change. It is a good idea to regularly check myTimetable as you are not notified whether an activity is changed during the preferential entry period.

Preference allocation

12 – 19 February 2019

RMIT allocates all enrolled students to classes in accordance to their preferences.

During this time, you won’t be able to view or edit your personal timetable, but you can still view the public version of myTimetable. Search by course name or code to find timetabling details in the public version of myTimetable.

Review and adjust your timetable

9am, 20 February – 5pm, 18 March 2019

myTimetable will open for allocation adjustments.

Allocation adjustment for students will be on a first-in, first-served basis, so it is a good idea to log in early.  

View your personal class timetable

All done! You can now view, print and share your personal class timetable from myTimetable.

You can also feed your class timetable to your personal calendar by selecting the iCal link in myTimetable.
