You've got a plan and you understand your course requirements. Now it's time to enrol in topics and register for classes.
You should have already:
Enrolment varies from course to course. Some courses will automatically select topics for you, others you will need to choose from a list, and some you will need to search for the desired topic.
Courses may be made up of core, elective, option and specialisation topics. You should refer to your course rule for details about which topics to enrol in. You should also refer to your study planner which will include the core topics you must complete and, if applicable, sections for electives, option topics, or major/minor/specialisation topics.
Tip: Have your course rule and study planner with you when you go to enrol.
Topics will appear with a blue background if they are available for enrolment. Some will have a preselected semester if they are only offered in a singular study period or location. Other topics may have their own drop-down menu where you need to select a study period or location.
To select the topics you wish to enrol in, tick the corresponding box on the right-hand side of the page and follow the prompts to finalise your enrolment. Once you have enrolled, you can register in classes (if applicable).
Watch our 'enrolling in topics' video for step-by-step guide to enrolling in topics at Flinders.

Registering for classes
Your topics deliver a range of materials through Flinders Learning Online (FLO). You can access each of your topic FLO sites via the 'my course' section of Compass.
Access to enrolled topics in FLO is made available to you one week before teaching begins. You can view the teaching dates via the topic page - access this via the Topic link in the 'my course' section of Compass.
Each FLO topic page will include information specific to your topic. This includes:
The appearance of your topics may vary, however your Topic Coordinator and FLO Student Support are able to assist. You can view your Topic Coordinator details via the 'my course' section of Compass.

It is your responsibility to ensure you meet the attendance requirements for your topics. This may require you to attend a repeat lecture, or if the lecture is recorded, watch or listen to the lecture at a later stage (recordings will be made available on FLO for some topics). To check whether your lecture will be recorded, contact your lecturer or topic coordinator. If the lecture will not be recorded, you will need to contact email your College administrative officer to discuss your options.
