mySchedule

Federation University’s timetabling system is called mySchedule.

After you enrol into your courses in my Student Centre you will be able to manage your timetabled classes in mySchedule.

Previously, mySchedule operated on a first-in first-served process. mySchedule now operates in Preference and Adjustment mode. This means that for most courses, classes will be allocated based on the preferences you pick, giving everyone an equal chance of their preferred times.*

You can read more about each mode and find instructional videos and guides below.

Preference Mode

Before Semester 2 teaching period begins, you will be given an opportunity to indicate your preferred classes.  Take your time to consider your selections. This is an equitable process, not a first-in, first-served process.

After Preference Mode closes for sorting, mySchedule will not be available. During sorting, your preferences will be taken into account to create the best possible clash-free timetable for all students. There is no guarantee you will get your first preferences.

If your circumstances change, or you need to consider alternatives, you will be able to adjust your timetable during the Adjustment Mode.

  • If any of your course enrolments in mySchedule have 'Non-timetabled class' listed against them, this means that there is no timetabled classes for this course so you don't need to make any changes in mySchedule. Further information about this course will be provided to you before the commencement of classes., eg: via Moodle.
  • If you are enrolled in courses for non-standard Terms (e.g. Winter, Summer, etc), your individual timetable will open directly in Adjustment Mode.
  • Allocations for Mt Helen 2nd & 3rd year nursing course will be managed centrally and released when mySchedule is in Adjustment Mode (see key dates). There will be no preference entries for these courses. Timetable adjustments require academic approval and administrative assistance.

View the mySchedule preference video or download the How to preference your timetable (pdf, 157kb) to learn how to preference the classes in your timetable.

Adjustment Mode

If you did not select classes during Preference Mode, or Preference Mode was not available to your course, then your classes may not be fully allocated, and you will need to complete the allocation process during Adjustment Mode.

You now have an opportunity to review the allocations and make changes where possible.  You can also wait-list classes that you would like to allocate into if those classes are full.  The sooner you review your class allocations the better chance you have of creating the timetable that suits you.

  • If any of your course enrolments in mySchedule have 'Non-timetabled class' listed against them, this means that there is no timetabled classes for this course so you don't need to make any changes in mySchedule. Further information about this course will be provided to you before the commencement of classes.
  • If you are enrolled for non Standard Terms (eg: Winter, Summer, etc), your individual timetable will open directly in Adjustment Mode.
  • Allocations for Mt Helen 2nd & 3rd year nursing course will be managed centrally. Timetable adjustments require academic approval and administrative assistance.

Read-Only Mode

If a course shows as (READ ONLY), you can view your timetable for this course but will not be able to manage your class allocations.

Reasons why a course may appear (READ ONLY) include:

  • Allocations for this course have been managed centrally. Timetable adjustments require academic approval and administrative assistance;
  • Timetables are closed for further adjustment.  Typically, this occurs two weeks after classes commence.

Off Mode

If a course shows as (OFF), you will not be able to select preferences, adjust allocations, or view the timetable for this course.

Reasons why a course may appear (OFF) include:

  • mySchedule may not be open yet for you to manage your allocations. Please refer to the Key dates;
  • mySchedule will not be available while the preference sort process is undertaken;
  • Allocations for this course are being managed centrally;
  • The course is not running this semester (e.g. Semester 2 courses will be visible in Semester 1, but shown as (OFF)).
