Getting started at Griffith University

Congratulations on gaining a place at Griffith University. We look forward to making your student experience a positive one and to working with you to achieve your career goals.

In the coming days, you will be sent an email congratulating you on your offer that contains your personalised link which will enable you to set up and access myGriffith. We call this your Starting@Griffith email. If your offer is for a future trimester or teaching period, you may not be able to enrol until later, however you will still be able to complete your pre-enrolment questionnaire, order a Student ID card and submit your USI.

When you receive this email and have set up your password, you can commence your onboarding activities through myOrientation. There is a link to this on your myGriffith site.

Where do I find key dates?

Refer to the Academic Calendar for Orientation and Trimester start dates, as well as when open enrolment commences for your intake.


Do you need to enrol to secure your place?

For students who have received an offer for one of the following programs you will be required to enrol within a short timeframe. Applicants who do not enrol will have their offer lapsed and lapsed offers may not be reinstated.

These programs include (but are not limited to): B Acting, B Clinical Exercise Physiology, B Dental Health Science, B Dental Hygiene, B Dental Technology, B Dental Technology/B Dental Prosthetics, B Medical Science, B Midwifery, B Music, B Musical Theatre, B Occupational Therapy, B Paramedicine, B Physiotherapy.

Once you receive your Starting@Griffith, make sure that you check if you have any requirement to enrol and/or complete other requirements within a specified number of days in order to secure your place. This is a requirement for our competitive and quota managed programs so that we are sure you are coming.

If this is a requirement for you then you must finalise enrolment into classes for at least one course in order to secure your place within the required timeframe. If you do not enrol into at least one course, then your offer will lapse. Lapsed offers may not be reinstated. You must not wait for a credit application to be processed and if you are having technical issues then contact Student Connect within the required timeframe using the details below and state that you need to enrol urgently to ensure that your place in the program is secure. Once your credit application has been approved later, you can amend your enrolment then.

For QTAC applicants you will also be required to respond to your offer in QTAC as well as enrolling at Griffith within a short timeframe to secure your place. These details are included in your QTAC offer email. If you are accepting your offer (whether unconditionally or conditionally), then you must enrol and/or complete other requirements to secure your place within the specified timeframe.
