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 follow the steps below.

 

Step 1: Plan your timetable

Semesters 1 and 2 2020: From 9am Monday 25 November 2019

Before classes start, you can view your 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.

We initially publish the whole year’s timetable for your information, but allocation into classes is completed on a semester basis. We advise you re-visit myTimetable at the beginning of June for Semester 2 timetable updates.

 

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 (lecture, 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

Semester 1 2020: 9am Tuesday 28 January - 5pm Monday 10 February 2020

Semester 2 2020: 9am Monday 15 June - 5pm Monday 29 June 2020

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

Semester 1 2020: 9am Monday 17 February - 5pm Monday 16 March 2020

Semester 2 2020: 9am Monday 6 July - 5pm Monday 3 August 2020

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.
