Step 2. Understanding the Interactive Student Information System (ISIS)

The Interactive Student Information System, known as ISIS, is the ANU system that allows students to:

  • enrol in courses
  • view invoices
  • check grades
  • confirm graduation eligibility
  • pay fees
  • submit commonwealth assistance forms (CAF)
  • maintain personal information.

In order to enrol into your courses, you will first need to log into ISIS. Learn how to do this by watching the short “How to Enrol” videos.

Information for International & Part-time students

International students

If you are an international student, you have certain requirements that you must continue to meet while you are studying at ANU.

Enrolment load – you must be enrolled with a full-time load which is 24 units (normally 4 courses) in each semester. This will total 48 units (normally 8 courses) in one year.

Address information – you must add your Canberra address and contact phone number in your ISIS account before attending classes.

TIP: Read through the ANU International students website. It includes a lot of very useful information which will help you settle in at ANU and achieve success in your studies.

Part-time students

Domestic students can enrol with a part-time load. You do this by choosing less than 24 units (normally 4 courses) in each semester. Enrolling part-time will extend the duration of your program.

Step 4. Complete the ISIS wizard and enrol into your courses

Follow the task wizard in ISIS to set up your account with your personal information.

Once you’ve completed this, you’ll be able to start adding your courses, from Step 3. If you need help, check out the videos from Step 2 again.

Step 5. Check your timetable

To see when you need to attend lectures, seminars and tutorials check out your timetable at the timetabling website. It is advised that you enrol into your tutes early, to ensure you get the best chance at the timetable you want. Tutorial selection will open two weeks before semester starts.  

Most courses at CBE have 2 to 3 hours of lectures and 1 hour of tutorials per course, every week. These are called ‘contact hours’.

For your convenience, some courses have lectures that are repeated and are shown multiple times in the timetable. You don’t have to attend all of these. Page 3 of the Class Timetable Viewer FAQ has more information about this.

If you're having trouble or have a question about the timetable builder, read through the noticeboard on the timetable website, and check out the Class Timetable Viewer FAQ document or an example timetable for Microeconomics 1.

Visit timetable website

Timetable FAQ

How do I get my timetable?

You can view your timetable by visiting the ANU Timetable Viewer and selecting your courses and the appropriate semester under the ‘Courses’ tab.

Please note that your lecture times may change each week. 

For further information regarding timetabling, please visit the ANU Timetabling webpage.

What room is my lecture or tutorial in?

Once you select your courses in the ANU Timetable Viewer, you will be able to see which venue each class is held in. Please visit the ANU Map if you need directions.

Please note that your class venue may be subject to change.

For further information regarding timetabling, please visit the ANU Timetabling webpage.

I have a timetable clash between lectures, what can I do?

Should you have a timetable clash between lectures you may either watch the lectures of one course online or enrol in another course in your program.

If you need assistance choosing another suitable course, please view the course requirements for your program through the Programs & Courses website or contact CBE Student Services at info.cbe@anu.edu.au.

I have a timetable clash between tutorials, what can I do?

If you have a clash between tutorial times and you are unable to attend a different tutorial timeslot, please contact the lecturer or convener of your course to discuss alternative arrangements.

Your lecturer's contact details may be found on the sidebar of each course's Wattle page.

Step 6. Check Wattle for your course materials

Wattle (Web Access To Teaching & Learning Environments) is a learning management system which contains materials for your courses such as readings, course outline, lecture recordings, and information about your assessment items.

The course outline is an extremely important document. It lists your rights and obligations as a student in the course, and lists any textbooks you may need to purchase.

Wattle will open on Monday the 8 July. If you have enrolled into your courses through ISIS before Friday the 6 July you will be able to see your courses and enrol into tutorials in Wattle on Monday. Courses take 24 hours to appear in your Wattle after you enrol in them through ISIS.  

Visit Wattle website

Step 7. University Email Account Setup

ANU and CBE will use your ANU Student Email account to contact you about upcoming events, program and course information, graduation checks, and other important information. 

As an ANU student, you are required to regularly check your Student Email account so you don't miss any communication. You are welcome to forward your emails to a personal email address. IT Service Desk has instructions on how to do this here.

Log into Student Email Account

Step 8. Attend O-Week activities

Well done on completing the Enrolment Fast Track checklist! This next step is all about getting to know ANU and enjoying yourself. Orientation Week is between the 15 – 19 July. During O-Week you will meet other new students, familiarise yourself with the campus, and prepare for study.

The College's student induction session will outline essential College information and give you the chance to hear from CBE societies and administrative staff. Keep an eye on your Student Email account for details about your induction session. 

You will also have the opportunity to attend a tour of our facilities, hosted by some of our existing students, and receive important information about your program, support services, academic skills development, and staying healthy during studies.

There are loads of other events on during O-Week at ANU. Visit the Orientation Week website to register for the ANU welcome and remember to join the New@ANU Facebook group!
