Semester 1 2012 Timetable
Changes can only be made in response to exceptional circumstances, which include:

  • unexpected staff illness, resignation etc
  • a change to sessional staff availability for unforeseeable reasons
  • changes necessitated by an unexpected increase/decline in enrolment numbers
  • a scheduled location becomes a health or safety hazard
  • a unit is removed from offering
  • reasonable adjustments to accommodate students with special needs
  • other unforeseeable and extraordinary circumstances outside the control of the Faculty, School or organisational unit.

Should any change requests be made, they must include the reason for the change as well as HOS endorsement. This endorsement should appear in the appropriate column of the Change Request Spreadsheet and be visible in the email trail.

NOTE Where the reason for the change is not in accordance with the circumstances listed above, the change request must also include:

  • an explanation of why the change was not identified in the Draft/Provisional timetable phase and
  • accompanying written (email) approval from the Head of School, otherwise Timetabling staff will be unable to consider actioning these changes.

Where change is approved:

  • the change will be factored into vacant slots in the timetable
  • consequential changes to classes already scheduled will not be made in order to accommodate such changes and
  • where a post publication request is action, the School/organisational unit is responsible for advising affected students via email, and/or other notification.

Thank you to all TLOs and Heads of School who have worked so hard to contribute to the publishing of this timetable.


Tutorial Direct
Tutorial Direct opened to students Wednesday 19 January for allocation to classes in Semester 1 2012. Opening dates are staggered in line with TAC offer dates. In addition, Tutorial Direct is now operating across an additional server to alleviate the intense activity on the Tutorial Direct site and restricts user log ins based on their nominated campus in Banner.

These measures should reduce stress for students and minimise access-related referrals to Student Centres and Course Coordinators.

Tutorial Direct is open to staff for buffering, imposition of constrains and the posting of messages to students. This needs to be completed before Tutorial Direct opens for each campus. Tutorial Direct user guides are also available via links on the Staff Tutorial Direct webpage, accessed at: http://www.acu.edu.au/staff/student_and_course_management/course_management/tutorial_direct/.

PLEASE NOTE that the opening date for Victorian students has been revised to 24 January in 2012.

Please be mindful of the fact that timetable changes made after Tutorial Direct opens will not be reflected on student timetables (ie. any students who have already enrolled in a class will have their enrolment in that group negated). It is essential that, should a change have to take place, any affected students are notified by the School.

Should you have any enquiries about this process, please contact Timetabling.
