Enrol as a new student

A guide to completing your enrolment

An offer letter from RMIT lands in your mailbox – Congratulations! What to do next is to secure your place by successfully enrolling online. 

Please follow the four steps below. We recommend you start this process as soon as you receive the RMIT offer letter to give yourself enough time to finish and avoid being rushed.

Step 1: Accept your offer

It’s time to make a decision: to accept or defer your offer. You need to either:

  • Accept your offer via the online application platform by following the prompts, by the deadline listed in your offer letter; or
  • Defer the offer via the online application platform. You may want to contact your Student Recruitment Consultant for advice or guidance


If you choose to accept your offer, follow the detailed instructions in the offer letter available via the online application platform to prepare for enrolment.

  • Pay the non-refundable tuition fee deposit of VND 20,000,000. See the available payment methods to pay RMIT fees. It may take 48 hours for your deposit payment to be updated.
  • Check the important dates and deadlines in your offer letter; pay attention to the enrolment start date and the commencement date.

Please make sure that you have paid the deposit before continuing to the next step.

Step 2: Set up your RMIT account

You will receive an email from RMIT Vietnam’s Registrar office on your personal email account with your student details and enrolment instructions.  

In the process, if you encounter any issues when accessing the system, please contact IT support.

Know your Student ID, RMIT email address and temporary password.

You’ll use your student ID, RMIT email address and temporary password to access various RMIT systems, including myRMIT - your self-service platform. 

  • Your student ID (username) is the letter ‘s’ followed by your student number (excluding any additional letters). You’ll find your student number in your RMIT enrolment email. Example: If your student number is 3123456, then your RMIT ID would be s3123456.
  • Your RMIT email address is your student number followed by @rmit.edu.vn. Example: If your student ID is s3123456, your RMIT email address is s3123456@rmit.edu.vn
  • Your temporary password is the letter 'p' followed by your date of birth backwards, with an exclamation mark '!' at the end. Example: If your date of birth is 8 April 1998, then your password is p19980408! 

If you log in myRMIT for the first time, re-set your password and familiarise yourself with the functionality available to you.

Change your temporary password as soon as possible to make sure your student account is secure. You will need your new password to access all RMIT systems, including your student email account.

  • Change your password:
    • Open your browser (preferred browsers are Firefox or Google Chrome).
    • Go to password page
    • Log in using your given RMIT ID (S-number) and temporary password
    • Click on “Change your password” tab
  • Set a new password: Type your new password (Tip: Read the instructions for password format and set your password following those rules.)
  • Confirm your new password: Re-type your new password and then click Change Password.
