  1. New students and returning students must both complete enrolment before registering for individual classes.
  2. Plan your class timetable. Registration is completed in eStudent. There are easy to follow instructions available if you need help registering for your classes or printing your timetable.
  3. Our app will give you single sign on access to JCU systems and applications like eStudent and LearnJCU as well as up to date personalised class and exam timetables. It's available for desktop, apple and android computers, laptops and devices.

If there are no places are left in any of the class options, and a wait list is available (indicated by a grey clock), you can select to be on the wait list for that class. You will be contacted to confirm your place if a space becomes available.

If all of the classes are showing as full and there is no wait list, you should contact the Student Centre.

In most cases, you do not need to be concerned with any classes on a waitlist.  Class numbers are monitored by the College and, where possible, increased accordingly.  When the class size is increased, you will automatically go onto the registered class list. In some cases, class sizes cannot be increased, and you will be required to choose an alternative class to attend.

If you have a timetable clash between a core and an elective subject, you will need to choose an alternate elective. If you have a clash between two core subjects, please contact the Student Centre.

If you withdraw from a subject, eStudent will automatically de-register you for any classes for that subject.

For more information and troubleshooting, refer to eStudent online help.

If you have any questions about the waitlist for your subject, you will need to contact your College (see below).
