New Students

Enrolment

Subject to meeting prerequisites, students can select from postgraduate courses offered by the majority of ANU Colleges and some pre-approved courses available from our partner universities. Please note that Law and Medical School courses are not normally available to GSS students. If you are unsure of the courses available in your areas of interest you can browse discipline areas using the ANU Programs and Courses catalogue.

For GSS students, most courses will require permission codes to enrol from the offering area or Course Convener. Please see disciplines and contacts for enrolment permissions.

Once you have finalised your course selection and gained appropriate permission codes you can login to ISIS and enrol online.

If you have trouble enrolling online or receive an error message please contact gss@anu.edu.au to finalise your enrolment.

FEE-HELP

If you are applying for FEE-HELP complete the relevant eCAF (Electronic Commonwealth Assistance Form) in ISIS at the time of enrolment. You will need to enter your tax file number in the relevant section. While you are not required to complete the eCAF form until Census Date, it is best to complete it at this stage, otherwise an invoice for fees will be automatically generated in your ISIS account. If your fees are to be paid by an organisation, such as a university, government agency or employer see our Sponsorships web page for further information.

Student identification

You will be issued with a student ID number and a password that will be required to access the University systems including ISIS. You should change the password regularly.

Student card

You will be issued with a student card that can be used to confirm your student ID. You will be asked to show your student card when you access services such as the Library, computer labs, Sport and Recreation Centre and Health and Counselling services. The card will enable you to exit any building in the University. Access to buildings needs to be approved.

Student systems

University student systems can be accessed using your student ID number and password.  If you go to www.anu.edu.au/students you will see some links at the top of the page. You can access your University email account here; your personal and academic information will be in ISIS (Interactive Student Information System); course materials such as course outlines, assignments, and recorded lectures will be in Wattle. Your student ID and password will give you access to all sites, once you are enrolled.

Email

ANU email addresses are created automatically for all students when they join the University. ANU email accounts are in the form of your ID number and the ANU webmail suffix, eg u1234567@anu.edu.au This is the official medium of contact for students. The University will use this address to send you official correspondence. Please check your ANU email account regularly, or forward your ANU email to an address that you do check regularly.

Now that you are a current student

Once you are enrolled, you are considered a ‘current student’ and a valued member of our ANU graduate community. You will need to familiarise yourself with ANU study guidelines. You should make sure you are aware of the dates and administrative processes important to managing your program successfully at ANU.

Coursework guidelines

Please familiarise yourself with the College of Arts & Social Sciences guidelines to ANU and CASS policies and procedures for coursework students.

Program Leave

Program Leave (suspension of studies) ensures that your place in your program is reserved so that you may continue your studies at the end of your absence. Program leave can only be taken by students who have completed at least one course in their program. All periods of leave are counted as part of the time you take to complete your program.

If you are on leave, access to ISIS and email will be retained. However, access to Wattle, libraries and some other ANU systems, facilities and services will not be available.

Applications for credit

When you apply as a new or transferring student, you will normally be automatically assessed for credit as per the Admission Requirements on the Master of Studies program page. If you do not wish to receive this credit so that you can take further courses in your program, please notify us at gss@anu.edu.au as soon as possible after accepting your offer.

If you would like further credit, please refer to the information on course credit or exemption and submit an application.

The unit value of credit (status) must not exceed 50 per cent of any award and all applications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
