The change to single sign on (and the Student Central landing page) will not happen from Monday 27 July as previously planned.
This means that you will continue to use your current login details, not your Office 365 student account, to access your learning platforms until further advice.
We apologise for any inconvenience this has caused.
Over the last week we have informed you about planned outages and interruptions affecting your online resources.
The planned outage of our digital systems from midnight (12:00 am) Friday 24 July until 9am Monday 27 July (AEST), will no longer go ahead. This means there will be no interruption in access to the following platforms:

You will have full access to all learning platforms during this period.
|Assessments and assignment extensions||
In a previous communication it was stated that students who have assignments due over the weekend of the outage Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 July will have an extension until midnight Wednesday 29 July.
These extensions will remain in place.
|Quizzes and tests||
Students who have online quizzes which start from Friday 24 July will start on Monday 27 July and have an extension until the following Sunday, 2 August.
This extension will remain in place.

If you have been approved for a pre/co-requisite waiver, please send an email to the Student Services (email@example.com), attach the approval and the CRN (see below) in your email, from here the team can unblock the issue and you can use your student portal to enrol into the subject.
If you want to request a pre/co-requisite waiver, email your program director/senior lecturer for permission, then email the approval along with a the CRN (see below) of the subject to Student Services(firstname.lastname@example.org).
What is a CRN? The CRN stands for Class Reference Number, this is a 3 digit number that corresponds with the class you would like to enrol into. The CRN can be found on your student portal and will show up as an error message when you go to enrol into the subject that has a pre/co-requisite block. Please contact Student Services for more information.
Step 1: Go directly to the Student Portal (bookmark this link). There is also a button link from the homepage of the Fitzroy Student Hub (where you are right now).
Step 3: Your Student Portal will appear! Navigate the menu items by selecting the “waffle” (four squares) in the top left corner, or use the quick links listed.
EFTSL stands for "Equivalent Full Time Student Load" and is a measure of the study load for one year for a student undertaking a course on a full-time basis.
You can work out each subject EFTSL by using this formula - subject credit points divided by the maximum credit points for the year = EFTSL for the subject
A full time study load for each trimester is 4 subjects x 0.83 = 3.32 EFSTL
A full time study load for each trimester is 3 subjects x 0.125 = 0.375 EFSTL
After you successfully register in your classes, you should expect to receive your invoice via your Office 365 student email.
If you are on Fee-Help, you will receive a link in an email from the government. Please complete the eCAF form as soon as possible to ensure that you are successfully approved for Fee-Help. If the approval is not completed before Census date, you will become liable for your fees for the term.
If you are paying upfront, you will see the fee amount and due date on the invoice.
Payment can be made via EFTPOS (cheque, savings or credit) on campus, by credit card over the phone, via BPAY or via Flywire (for International students). Please contact Student Services if you have any questions about making payments.
