Welcome to RMIT. To secure your place, you need to enrol online by following this step by step guide. If you prepare your documents first, and follow each step, enrolment will be easy. So, let’s get started!
You'll need the following documents and information to enrol.
Current Australian/NZ passport (preferred), citizenship certificate or other approved documentation to prove your citizenship or residency status.
If you have a current passport or citizenship certificate, you can verify your citizenship instantly when you enrol. If you use other approved documentation, it may take up to 48 hours before you can complete your enrolment. For details, see Citizenship verification.
Your program code and student number which you’ll find in your RMIT enrolment email.
Your Tax File Number (TFN), if eligible to apply for a HELP loan. If you don’t have a Tax File Number already, don’t worry you can still apply for a HELP loan when you enrol and provide your TFN online later, as long as it’s before the census date.

Your RMIT ID is the letter ‘s’ followed by your student number (example: s1234567).Your student number is in your RMIT enrolment email.
Your temporary password is the letter ‘p’ followed by your date of birth backwards and an exclamation mark (example: p19920428!).
Change your temporary password as soon as possible to make sure your student account is secure. Find out how at password assistance. You can use your new password to access all RMIT systems, including your student email account.
Before you add your classes, you will be asked to accept RMIT’s terms and conditions, verify your citizenship, fill in your personal details and provide statistical information.
If you have a current passport or citizenship certificate, you can verify your citizenship instantly. If you use other documentation, you will be asked to email a scanned copy or photo of your document using your RMIT student email account. You will receive an email when you can continue to enrol - usually this will take up to 48 hours.
Complete your electronic Commonwealth assistance form (eCAF) to apply for HECS-HELP
If you’ve been offered a Commonwealth supported place (refer to your enrolment email for details) you will be prompted to complete an electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) to apply for HECS-HELP. At this point you can also choose if you want to defer your tuition fees to a HECS-HELP loan or pay your fees upfront.
If you’ve been offered a full fee place, go to Step 6. You may be eligible to apply for a FEE-HELP loan after you have enrolled. See ‘Next steps’ for details.
When filling out the eCAF, you’ll be asked to provide your Tax File Number (TFN). If you can’t provide this now, you must provide it before your first census date if you wish to defer your tuition fees via a HELP loan.
Remember, it’s easy to apply for a TFN online, but it can take up to 30 days, so apply now if you don’t have one.
