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:

  • Submit the Offer Acceptance Form to Admissions at RMIT University Vietnam by the deadline listed in your offer letter.

  • Defer the offer by calling or emailing your Student Recruitment Consultant.

If you choose to accept your offer, follow detailed instructions in the offer letter sent to your personal email by RMIT Vietnam’s Registrar 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 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.  

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

You’ll use your student ID, RMIT email address and temporary password to access Online Enrolment (RMIT’s enrolment system) and other RMIT systems.

  • Student ID: Your student ID (also referred to as your RMIT ID) is the letter 's' followed by your student number (excluding any additional letters). Example: s1234567 

Your student number is in your enrolment instruction email from RMIT. 

  • RMIT email address: Your RMIT email address is the letter 's' followed by your student number (excluding any additional letters) and ‘@rmit.edu.vn’. Example: s1234567@rmit.edu.vn. 

You need to access your email to complete the enrolment process. 

  • Password: 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!

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.

You will need to register for multi-factor authentication (MFA). MFA requires a user to provide two factors of verification:

  • an email address and password, and
  • a request (yes or no response) or a passcode sent to your mobile phone. MFA adds an extra layer of protection to keep your data and RMIT networks more secure.
