Applying means you are asking to be accepted into a course. Enrolling means you have been accepted into a course and are now choosing your subjects.
How to enrol depends on the course you are doing. To enrol you will need CRNs (Class Reference Numbers) and /or Block Codes. You can enrol online for some courses.
When you apply online you will be asked to select an application type. Check the course information to find the application type for your course. Direct Access means you will be admitted to the course straight away.
General Entry means you will apply for the course then wait until you hear from CIT. Remember! Completing an application does not guarantee you a place in the course you have chosen - you have completed an application.
You must select an application type to continue your application. The application type is clearly marked on the course information page so if you are not sure go back and check there.
Direct Access means you will apply and be immediately accepted into the course. You will get an acceptance letter online. READ this carefully and print for your records. If you have the Class Reference Numbers (CRNS) you can go on to enrol. You will find the CRNs on the timetable on the course information page OR you will get them from your teacher before you apply and enrol. Sometimes you will need to come into to CIT to get your CRNs. Check the Course Guide to find out when the session will be.
General Entry means you will apply for the course then wait until you hear from CIT about an information or enrolment session. You will be accepted into the course at CIT Shopfront counter as part of enrolment.
New students: Click the Apply Now button on the course information page. This will take you straight to CIT Student Self Service. Follow the prompts for applications. If the application type is Direct Access and you have the CRNs (Class Reference Numbers) you can go onto enrol.

Remember you are not confirmed in a place until you have enrolled.
CRNs are Class Reference Numbers.
A block code is a code that groups several CRNs together. Using a block code to enrol will enrol you in more than one CRN.
You will find them either on the timetable on the online handbook entry, or your teacher will give them to you in class or information session.
Check the Courses on Offer booklet. This will tell you when a course information/enrolment session is. It will also let you know when you CRNs will be available to enrol online.
