Returning students

Massey University will issue each student with an Offer of Place once their first enrolment application for the academic year is approved. You will be notified by email that an Offer of Place has been issued. The email will also include information about how to respond to the Offer online. You can check out our online tutorial to see how to accept your Offer of Place online.

Once you receive your Offer of Place, you may accept, decline or apply to change your programme(s) and courses(s). If you accept your Offer, you will receive a Confirmation of Enrolment by email and the enrolment process will be complete. If you decline your Offer, you will be withdrawn from your courses and programme and you will not be enrolled. If you apply to change your enrolment, your application will be reassessed and a second offer will be issued if approved.

Once you have accepted an Offer of Place for an academic year, you do not have to do so again. Any changes you make will be acknowledged with a Confirmation of Enrolment.

The Confirmation of Enrolment contains the following information:

  • Confirmation of your programme and majors, minors or endorsements
  • Confirmation of your approved courses
  • Any courses that could not be approved or that you withdrew from (the reason is shown)
  • Dates you may withdraw from courses without financial and academic penalties.

If you want to make changes to your programme and course choices before you receive an Offer of Place, or after you receive your first Confirmation of Enrolment, you may do so using MyEnrolment up until the start of your study. Once you start studying you will also be able to use MyEnrolment to withdraw from courses if required. Please see changing and withdrawing from study for conditions of withdrawal. We recommend that you allow plenty of time for processing of any changes to avoid delays in providing you with study material, etc.
