Class Allocation System

Further Information

  • studentConnect
  • Handbook

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. Please note that If you change your course / withdraw from any unit, you will be automatically deallocated from all classes in that unit. There is no guarantee that you will get the same spot allocated to you previously.

Please note that CAS is in Read Only mode. If you need allocation adjustments, please contact your schools using the contact details given in  the timetable page for each activity.


For further information, refer to our Frequently Asked Questions.

Timetable options

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:

  1. enter preferences for the classes you would prefer to attend for every unit so you can set your timetable around work, sport and family commitments
  2. OR alternatively, allow CAS to auto-allocate a timetable for you.

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.
