Changing your course

Students waiting for class

If you have completed the declaration and wish to make changes to your course for 2016 you will need to collect a Change of Course Form from the University Information Centre.

If you are a Distance Learning student and wish to make changes please email the details to university@otago.ac.nz.

If you have not completed the course enrolment declaration for the 2016 main enrolment period you are still able to make changes to your programme of study yourself through your eVision Portal.

Adding, deleting and withdrawing from papers

If you wish to add, drop, or change papers, and have completed the course approval declaration, you will need to complete a change request form. See above.

Paper selections that include timetable clashes may not be accepted. You can view timetable information for papers using the Web Timetable viewer.

Making changes to your papers has implications for your fees, StudyLink loans and allowances, and academic record. It may also affect the immigration status of international students. See the webpage for more information.

Changing your programme

If you wish to change your programme (i.e. add, drop, or change qualifications, whether or not any papers are being changed) you will first need to apply via eVision for each new programme.

Once you have received and accepted an offer to the new programme, you can then drop any unwanted programmes.

If you wish to make any related changes to your papers you may be required to complete a Change of Course Form. See above.

Summer School

The date to withdraw from your Summer School papers has now passed. Changes can only be made if exceptional circumstances apply.

It's your course

Through eVision you can check the papers you are enrolled for and whether or not any requested changes have been processed. It is your responsibility, and in your own best interests, to ensure that your course of study is in accordance with the relevant regulations in the University Calendar and that your enrolment correctly records the papers you are taking.
