Timetable FAQ's

Highlights frequent asked questions

During the timetable selection period, you can use the myTimetable ‘heart’ ♥ function to request a place in a full class. Please note: 

  • This does not guarantee a place for you in the requested class. 
  • The ‘heart’ button is only available when (A) you have not selected any class, but all options are full or clashed with your existing timetable, or (B) you have selected a class but would like to change to another class which is full. 
  • You can request a place in multiple classes. If one of your requests is satisfied, other requests will be cancelled. 
  • You can cancel the requests by clicking on the heart again. 
  • You will be notified when your request is processed successfully via the system or your RMIT email.  

How to request a place in a full class: 

  • Log in to myTimetable via the Class timetables page 
  • In the myTimetable enrolment panel, click on the class you want to join, and you’ll be presented with time options offered for the class. 
  • Next to each class that’s full you’ll see a heart. Click on the heart to request a place in the class. You can request a place in as many classes as you like 
  • If a place becomes available, the system will automatically allocate you to your requested class. 

If you submit a request but change your mind, don't forget to remove the request by clicking on the heart again. 

You can move out of a selected class by clicking on the ‘rubbish bin’ icon next to it. 

It’s most likely because you've changed your courses and they haven’t loaded into myTimetable yet. Please try again in 60 minutes. 

There are some common login issues you may experience when using myTimetable. 

If you see the message Login error: You are not known by the system when trying to log in, it’s most likely because you've only just enrolled, and your courses haven’t loaded into myTimetable yet. Please try again in 60 minutes. 

If you’re experiencing long login or loading time, it’s most likely because the system is under high demand. Please wait at least 30 seconds before refreshing a page, or you'll be moved to the back of the server queue for the system.

myTimetable is closed for student selection a few days after the deadline for adding courses on Online Enrolment. Visit the Important Dates section for more details. When myTimetable is closed for timetable selection, you cannot select or change class groups. If you are unable to allocate yourself to class groups, please contact Student Connect for help.

Generally, no. myTimetable works on a first come, first served basis. The earlier you log in, the more choices you will have to select your preferred class-group. However, myTimetable allows priority access to special groups identified by the University.

Yes, you can view other course timetables by using the Public Timetable or search other courses directly on your myTimetable system.

myTimetable shows your timetable for the upcoming semester and current semesters in the same year.

Managing allocation problems

No. Please don’t attend classes that are full, as numbers in each class are limited to meet health and safety requirements and quality of teaching standards. Furthermore, attending classes that you’re not allocated into may cause problems with assessment and results.

You need to get an email approval of your program manager and then forward that approval to Student Connect so that they can support to allocate you into the class on the system. Attending classes that you’re not allocated into may cause problems with assessment and results.

No. Teachers and administrative staff in schools do not have the access rights to change individual students’ timetables. This is to ensure all students are treated consistently and fairly. If you are unable to allocate yourself to class groups, please contact Student Connect for help. 

Other timetabling features
