mySchedule

We are excited to bring a better approach to scheduling to Federation… mySchedule.

Enrolment and scheduling (timetabling) will separate into two distinct processes, with student enrolment completed in October and student schedules selected in January.

Enrolment will change to be at the course level only. This will make October enrolments much quicker and easier, as there will be no need to choose specific labs, tutes, pracs etc. Instructional guidelines and videos are provided on our enrolment webpages.

The University timetable will be created following this. Building the timetable with actual enrolments, rather than estimated data, means it will be more accurate and less likely to change. It is therefore important for students to enrol as early as possible, so we have the maximum data available when creating the timetable.

Our new class allocation system, mySchedule, will be launched in January, for students to prepare their schedules, using a ‘real data’ driven timetable.

FAQs

What is mySchedule?

mySchedule is a new class allocation tool being implemented at Federation. Students will use this to create their class schedules, instead of my Student Centre.

Do I enrol using mySchedule?

No, continue to use my Student Centre to manage your enrolments. mySchedule is used simply to manage your class schedule.

Can I get a sneak peek at mySchedule?

There will be opportunities to assist in the testing of this new system. Keep an eye on your emails and socials for further information on this in from November.

How do I log in to mySchedule?

A link will be provided once the system goes live and is open to staff and students. You will access the system using your standard Federation login and password.

How do I use mySchedule?

Support documentation will be provided here and on the enrolment webpages prior to the system opening.

When does mySchedule open for students?

mySchedule is due to open for Semester 1 allocations on 17 January 2022. It will open in ‘read-only’ mode just prior to this.

When does mySchedule open for staff?

mySchedule will be available to staff from mid December 2021.

How can I get the best possible schedule?

mySchedule will operate on a ‘first come, first served’ basis for Semester 1, 2022. That is, the earlier you log in and select your classes in mySchedule, the more options you will have and the better your schedule will be. You will not be able to select a class once it has reached capacity.

Can I plan my schedule before mySchedule opens for allocations?

Yes. mySchedule will open in a ‘read-only’ planning mode, prior to allocations opening. You will be able to log in and view the timetable for each of your courses, and even add tutorials, pracs etc to your mySchedule planner and save this draft. Having a planned schedule will allow you to secure these classes very quickly when mySchedule opens for allocations.

Will I be able to see my schedule in my personal calendar?

Yes, you can download your class schedule into your personal calendar (Outlook, google etc) via the iCal functionality on your mySchedule home screen.

Why do we need another system?

mySchedule will simplify the enrolment and scheduling processes at Fed, in a way that solely using mySC could not. It will significantly minimise the timetable and enrolment changes imposed on students and reduce the manual processing of updates required from staff.
