  8. If I have already been automatically allocated to a class slot, can I change my lecture/tutorial slots?

    Yes, you may under these two circumstances:

    (i) The class CLASHES with other units

    *If an elective unit clashes with your core units, please give priority to your core subjects.

    Replace the elective with another unit that does not clash with it.

    E.g.: If the tutorial class with seats available clashes with other classes and the ones you could attend are full. Then, contact the lecturer/tutor and provide a screenshot of the timetable issue. Kindly request from the tutor via email to grant you the permission to be allocated into the class which is full and thereafter, forward the email to CMO.

    (ii) The classes are FULL and you are not able to allocate into any given time slot.

    E.g.: During Oweek/week 1, the school will work closely with the timetable system team to add seats to classes due to unexpected surge of enrolment. Please monitor it on a regular basis and allocate your tutorial slot once seats are available.

    If you face the above issues, please visit the SASS Course Management Office or email us at mum.sasscmo@monash.edu
