Step 2 - Class Registration

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.

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.

What can I do if my class times clash?

Do I have to choose classes for an online course?

Yes, if your chosen course is being taught online, entirely or in parts, you still need to choose a class time to finalise your enrolment. Follow the normal steps for choosing class times and make sure you choose the WEB class that should be available.
