Waiting for O-Week? Here are some other important tasks to do in the meantime:

  • Pay or defer your fees
    • If you’re deferring your fees, you need to fill out the ECAF and SA-HELP forms using your Tax File Number in the ‘self-enrolment’ part of the student portal
    • If you’re paying your fees upfront, your invoice will be ready about a month before each semester. View your invoice in the ‘outstanding balance’ part of the student portal
  • Order a parking permit online if you’re driving (available from mid-January for each year).

Step 3: Attend O-Week

Orientation Week, or O-Week, is at the start of each semester and is the best way to prepare for life as a Murdoch student. It’s a great chance to meet academics, make new friends, explore the campus and get your student ID card.
