Why can't I enrol into a unit?

Before you can enrol in a unit you need to meet all the enrolment requirements.  If you are an OUA student enrolment is managed through your OUA student hub

  1. Activate your OASIS account
    To activate your OASIS account go to OASIS and click 'activate your account' in the blue login box as highlighted below and follow the instructions on the screen.
    OASIS login screen
  2. Accept your offer
  3. Check the conditions on your offer
    Your letter of offer outlines if you have any conditions you are required to submit before admittance to the course. Contact the relavant addmissions office to submit your outstanding entry requirements.
  4. Complete your eCAF (for domestic students)
    Prior to enrolling you are required to submit an electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) via OASIS > eStudent. If you don't have a tax file number you can still submit your eCAF to allow you to enrol.
  5. Pay upfront unit fees (for international students)
    International students are required to make full upfront payment of tuition fees by the due date of the study period.
  6. Clear any sanctions
  7. Accept your terms and conditions
    Prior to enrolling you are required to accept Curtin University’s Terms and Conditions in OASIS > eStudent > My Details.
  8. Check the enrolment dates
    Students are notified of enrolment and class registration dates via Official Communication in OASIS. Generally, enrolment for the Semester 1 study period opens in early November and enrolment for mid-year (Semester 2 study period) opens in early June of each year. The last date to enrol is end of week 1 of the study period commencement.
  9. Check your course status
    Your course status must be Admitted. You can see the status of your course via OASIS > eStudent under the My Enrolment section.
    If your course has a status of:
  10. Your study plan is not available
    If you have recently been admitted to a new course at Curtin University your study plan may not yet be available in eStudent. You will receive a message on eStudent which states “There are no components available for enrolment”. To proceed with enrolment, email your relevant Student Services so that they can make your study plan available.
  11. The unit quota has been reached (full)
    If you are unable to enrol into a unit because the quota has been reached/ full (outlined in the screen shot below) please contact your relevant School to find out if the unit quota can be increased. You are able to confirm if the quota has been reached by clicking on the word ‘Unavailable?’ under the unit title and will see the message circled in the screen shot below. In most cases the unit quota will be increased if you wish to enrol into a core unit. If you are enrolling into an elective or possibly an option unit the quota may not be increased and in this case you will need to select another unit. In most cases your relevant School is already aware that the unit quota has been reached/full and are in the process of resolving this matter.

  12. Requisite or unit conditions have not been met
    If you are unable to enrol into a unit because the unit has a requisite which you have not yet completed, this will be listed under the unit title on eStudent as highlighted below. Click on the words ‘Requisite Information’ for more details (as seen in the second screen shot below).

  13. Unit availability/ attendance mode/ location issues
    Unit availability refers to the study periods a unit is running throughout the year. Units may not be running in the study period (i.e. Semester 1) that you wish to enrol into the unit. In order to confirm the unit availability please search via the unit online handbook. If you require more information regarding unit availability please contact your relevant faculty.
    Attendance mode refers to how you wish to study a unit, internal or fully online. In order to confirm whether a unit is available internal or fully online please search via the unit online handbook. If you require more information regarding unit availability please contact your relevant faculty. Please note if you enrol into a unit fully online you will not be required to class register (timetable) for this unit via eStudent.
    Location refers to the campus you will be studying the unit. In some cases units are offered at other locations than the main Curtin location Bentley. If there is a unit you wish to study at an alternative location to Bentley (i.e. Perth City Campus) please contact your relevant faculty in order for staff to make this change on your study plan, as this is a change that you will not be able to make yourself via eStudent. Please note in some cases your relevant faculty may require approval from academics to make such changes, and in these cases please be advised it may take longer to process.
    Please note you will be able to see if the reason you are unable to enrol into the unit is related to unit availability, attendance mode or location on eStudent (My Enrolment) under the unit title by clicking on the word ‘Unavailable?’ as highlighted below.

  14. Unit attempts
    Please note you may not be able to enrol into a unit because you have previously attempted to complete this unit but were unsuccessful at that time. If you are attempting a unit for third time you may not be able to enrol. In this case please contact your relevant faculty in order for staff to make this change on your study plan, as this is a change that you will not be able to make yourself via eStudent.

For more guidance and information about enrolling via eStudent please refer to Acceptance, Enrolment and My Finances guide.

If after performing all these checks you are still unable to enrol into units, please contact your relevant faculty Student Services for further assistance.

When communicating with your relevant Student Services faculty, please provide us with your Student ID, name, and ensure that your email subject is a summary of your requirement so that we can assist you as soon as possible.
