Enrolling in subjects
Undergraduate and Postgraduate Coursework students can re-enrol by logging into SOLS and selecting ‘Enrolments and Variations’ from the left hand menu (for a detailed walkthrough, click here). For returning Research students, please go here.
General information regarding re-enrolment processes can be viewed below:
Most degrees have a number of core subjects, i.e. must be completed. There are also elective subjects which you may choose. For information on subjects available to you for your degree, refer to the Course Handbook for further information. Specific course questions should be referred to Faculty Centrals for specific Academic advice, they are:
- Business Central (Wollongong and Sydney)
- Science, Medicine and Health
- Engineering and Information Sciences
- Law, Humanities and the Arts; and
- Social Sciences.
When to re-enrol?
Re-enrolling processes open at different times for different sessions. To find out the 'first day to enrol' for continuing students, refer to the Key Dates page for information.
HINT: for Autumn and Spring sessions, you will need to re-enrol in at least one subject by the 'last day to re-enrol without a late fee' or a late enrolment fee of $100 may be charged.
How to re-enrol?
To re-enrol simply:
- Log into SOLS
- Select 'Enrolments / Variations' (from the left hand menu)
- Enter the subject code in the space provided (HINT: some subjects are offered in more than one session. Be sure to select the correct session); and
- Click 'add subject'
Please note that some subjects are offered on more than one campus. Users can see campus offerings by checking the box in the top right corner for 'List subjects on all campuses'.
HINT: you may need approval to enrol in other campus instances of subjects.
Changing subjects after enrolment
After enrolment, you are able to vary enrolment details as often as you like (provided changes are made within the permitted date periods).
To do this simply:
- Log into SOLS; and
- Select ‘Enrolments / Variations’ (from the left hand menu).
If there is a course restriction it may be due to missing the appropriate time period to enrol in a course. In these instances, the Subject Addition Form and/or Amendment to Academic Record Form should be completed. Key dates for addition and withdrawal for subjects can be found on the Key Dates page.
What happens if a student does not re-enrol?
If you do not re-enrol, the course will eventually lapse (usually after six months). Where courses lapse, and if you decide to return to UOW you will need to apply for a new offer. If you would like to take a break from studies and subsequently return, the processes available here will be necessary.
Enrolment system errors
- the last date to add a subject has passed (refer to Key Dates)
- the subject is full, i.e., over quota
- there is a Course Constraint; or
- the student has reached the maximum 'credit points' for enrolling into a session.
In these instances, you will need approval via the relevant Faculty by completing the Subject Addition Form.
You should also double check you are entering the correct subject code. HINT: Subject codes are 7 characters in length and may contain spaces, e.g. UNI 001.
