The Class Allocation System (CAS) is how you put together your timetable at UWA.
CAS allows you to select your preferred class times, using a preference system. It's as easy as listing the class times you prefer for each unit, in order from first preference to last. The unit details will tell you how many preferences you will need to enter for each unit.
The Class Allocation System is linked to your official enrolment on studentConnect. To make official changes to your unit enrolment you must do so on studentConnect first. After completing your enrolment, please allow ONE HOUR for your login details to be synced with CAS.
Please note that CAS shows units starting from Week 5 to Week 30 excluding Summer units, some Trimester units and Non Standard teaching period units that fall outside the CAS date range.
Recorded lecture options have been added to participating units. Allocating yourself to a Recorded option will remove you from the physical class - indicating you intend to watch the recording instead. Recorded allocations appear as grey activities on your timetable, scheduled on Saturday or Sunday in a given week. Please note the scheduled time is NOT indicative of when the recorded lecture will be made available. Please consult LMS for availability of recorded lectures. Recorded lecture options are recommended when dealing with clashes
CAS opens on specific dates so you can enter your preferred class activity times. After closing, it sorts the preferences to give you a workable timetable, and reopens so you can make adjustments.
For some class activities, there is only one session, so the system will auto-allocate these sessions to your timetable. The system will also do this if you don't nominate preferences for activities with multiple times.
For each unit displayed in CAS, you will need to:
If you decide to do nothing, as long as you're enrolled in your classes, you can sit back and let CAS do the work for you. You'll still be given the opportunity to move yourself amongst the other options of classes, where places are available.
