When does my student access to online services start?

The table below sets out when access to electronic services, such as computers in the Information Commons area and library resources, starts and ends. Some web-based applications, like the Application for Admission, can be accessed at any time.

Electronic access is based on you having an active enrolment in a semester, quarter or academic year:    

  • Semesters - most undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are semester based, ie, Bachelor of Arts, Postgraduate Diploma in Health Sciences, Tertiary Foundation Certificate.
  • Academic year - Doctoral programme enrolments are by calendar (academic) year. Note: If you are completing a thesis in an MSc you are enrolled in a semester but have the same start and end dates as a doctoral candidate.
  • Quarters - programmes that are run by the Graduate School of Management, such as the MBA, are delivered in the quarters.
