There are a number of common problems that can prevent you from enrolling successfully, please see the links below to the forms which can be utilised to resolve these issues:
Enrolment error webforms
Please note: The Faculty Office priority in processing enrolment requests is to enrol students in their chosen courses but, not necessarily, in their chosen classes. As a result you may find that you are not enrolled in your preferred classes or that you have some unwanted timetable clashes.
In a limited number of cases the Faculty Office may need to move students between classes to resolve timetable clashes for core courses or to manage unexpected changes to class schedules and staff availability. If your enrolment has to be changed you will be notified via email.
If you have been successfully enrolled in your chosen course, this will be shown on your enrolment list in MyAdelaide and you will be notified via email.
It is not possible to satisfy every enrolment request. A number of classes have fixed physical constraints that cannot be exceeded without removing other students. If we are unable to enrol you into your chosen course, you will be notified via email.
Class time changes
Please be aware that changes to timetables can occur up to the end of the first week of semester. While you can reasonably expect to be notified of late changes, sometimes this may not occur. Please check MyAdelaide prior to the start of each semester to confirm your class times.
There are three common problems that can prevent you enrolling successfully:
- Timetable clash
This error message appears when the class you’re trying to enrol in has a time conflicting with another class you’ve already enrolled in. The timetable clash will cause the enrolment to fail, and Access Adelaide will display a 10-digit Enrolment Request ID Number (0006______) at the top right-hand side of the screen.
If you receive an error, please take note of the Enrolment Request ID and contact Ask Adelaide via phone or chat.
Alternatively you may need to submit a Timetable clash resolution form.
- Class full
Once classes are open for enrolment, students enrol in classes on a 'first come, first served' basis. Popular class times fill up quickly, so we suggest that you enrol as soon as possible to maximise your chances of a suitable timetable. You can enrol in semester 2 courses at the start of the year.
If a class is full, you won’t be able to find it in Access Adelaide. If you are unable to enrol because all classes in a course are full, please lodge a request for consideration using the Class full resolution form.
Please note that, due to occupational health, safety and welfare requirements, you cannot be enrolled in classes where the maximum room capacity has already been reached.
If your Class Full enquiry relates to a course, or courses, outside the ECMS faculty, such as ENTREP, ECON, ACCT etc., please forward your enquiry to the relevant faculty office. For e.g. a PHYSICS course enquiry should be forwarded to the Faculty of Sciences, and an ENTREP course enquiry should be forwarded to the Faculty of the Professions.
- Unit overload
If you wish to enrol in more than 12 units in a semester, you’ll need to seek approval. Approval for a unit overload is based on previous academic performance and takes into consideration your future study pathways. The attempted overload will cause the enrolment to fail, and Access Adelaide will display a 10 digit Enrolment Request ID Number (0006______) at the top right hand side of the screen.
Please enter this number, and your reasons for the overload, in the Unit overload request form.
Please note that it’s your responsibility to manage your workload if an overload request is approved.
