CIT Self Service recommended web browsers
Current versions of the Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Safari web browsers should allow you to access CIT Self Service.
What is a CRN and why is it important?
CRN stands for 'Class Reference Number'.
Each unit or subject that you study at CIT will have a CRN to identify your classes/subjects for that course.
You will see the CRN(s) listed on documents such as your Unofficial Transcript (Record of Results), your Student Schedule - Timetable and your Statement of Account (but not on your Invoice).
The CRN is also used in the transfer of information from the Student Information Management System to the eLearn system. If you find that you cannot access one of your courses in eLearn, it will help to resolve the problem more quickly if you know the CRN.

When will grades (results) be available?
Subject grades should be available two weeks after a unit or subject has ended. As many subjects are offered flexibly you may need to check regularly or ask your teacher.
It is important to know that the results your teacher has entered in eLearn are just results for specific pieces of assessment; they are not your final grades.
From 2020, CIT students and graduates will be issued with digital academic documents through the My eQuals portal. CIT is the first VET provider to join My eQuals, providing digital official academic transcripts and awards to CIT students and graduates on My eQuals. Visit the My eQuals page at: cit.edu.au/myequals If your student record has a 'hold' applied to it your results will be withheld.
What are Holds?
A 'hold' is a block on your student record that can prevent you from re-enrolling, borrowing resources, receiving results or even graduating.
The two main types of hold are financial (due to outstanding fees) or library (due to outstanding library materials). There is also a returned mail hold which is applied when mail is returned to CIT because you are no longer at the address recorded on Banner. This hold is only applied if CIT is unable to contact you in order to obtain your current address.
If you need assistance regarding a hold on your record, you should contact CIT Student Services on (02) 6207 3188.
If there is a problem with my academic records where can I get advice?
You should contact CIT Student Services for assistance on (02) 6207 3188.
