At the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK) a person is considered a registered student upon full completion of the enrollment process including online registration in one or more units during the advertised registration period.
Period for registration
The period for registration is published on the Important Dates webpage. Continuing students (including students granted a Leave of Absence in the previous semester) are expected to register during the advertised registration period. Regardless of how a student’s tuition fees are funded, it is a student’s responsibility to complete the registration process by the advertised deadline. Students should contact their allocated Academic Advisor if unsure regarding choice of units.
A student placed on Academic Warning or Academic Probation is prevented from taking a full-load and must meet with his/her Academic Advisor to discuss his/her registration. A student who has been granted approval to change major should obtain a copy of his/her new Diploma or Degree Course Outline from the ACK website.
New and transfer students are offered workshops during the Orientation period on how to use the online registration system. Students are informed of the dates for the workshops by Student Affairs upon collection of their offer letter and are expected to complete their registration on these dates.
All students, (apart from those placed on Academic Warning or Probation), must register in a full-time load. For PUC Scholarship holders, registering in a full-time load is also a mandatory PUC requirement.

- Pay attention to the color of the units in your schedule
- If Blue, the units are registered.

Late registrations are not permitted and there are consequences for not registering during the advertised period.
