What is Class Registration?

Class Registration is the final step in enrolling in the courses (subjects) that you will be taking at UNSW for each term.

Before each term, you will choose your class times. This will confirm your enrolment and create your timetable.

You can change your courses and your class times online, up to the enrolment deadline for each term.

You must Class Register (choose your class times) for your courses before the deadline each term, or your courses will be dropped.

As part of the universities response to COVID-19, some courses will be running fully online while others will have a selection of face-to-face and online classes available. Online class locations have been updated to online, however they still have set days and times to create your timetable.

Many of those classes, such as lectures, can be accessed online at any time. Some classes, such as tutorials, may require online attendance at their set time.

You must still choose class times for your courses to confirm your enrolment.

To help with creating your timetable in the online learning environment, UNSW has pre-approved many more class clashes. Permitted clashes between class times will appear in orange on your timetable. 

When can I Class Register?

You will be given a day and time for choosing your class times and finalising your enrolment. This is known as a Class Registration time and is specific to you.

Instructions to access your Class Registration enrolment time will be emailed to you, so make sure you monitor your UNSW student email.

You can also watch our instructional video on finding your Class Registration time.

Or you can find your Class Registration time directly on myUNSW under Enrolment Appointment.

What can I do if my class times clash?

Do I have to choose classes for an online course?
