Timetabling dates

Getting your timetable right is vital. So it’s important that you know when to select your classes how to manage your timetable.

Preferential class selection

In Semester 2, ACU will be moving to preferential class selection.

Rather than logging in to Allocate+ as soon as it opens, you'll now have up to 2 weeks to select your preferred classes.

There is no advantage to logging in early. As long as you submit your preferences before they close, you will have the same chance as everybody else of getting your preferred classes.

Allocate+ will then be closed for a week while students are sorted and allocated to classes based on their preferences.

After your timetable is released, if you want, you'll be able to fine-tune it by moving to a class with available places or requesting a swap.

Watch this brief video to learn more about how preferential class selection works.

Class selection help

A suite of detailed how-to video guides and a Quick Reference Guide are available on the Allocate+ home page and on the Class Selection help page. These videos contain important information that you will need when submitting your preferences.
