Enrolment information

A group of students walking through the Ormskirk campus

You must enrol before the start of your course to become a member of the University, activate your IT/Library account and release your student loan funds.

If you are a new student you will complete two stages of enrolment (both online).

All the instructions and links you will need to enrol will be emailed out to you. Continuing students can enrol through the student homepage.

You need to enrol on your course at the beginning of each academic year.

New students

Stage one

You will provide some personal details and upload a suitable photograph for your University Student ID card (Unicard), as well as a copy of your identity document (ID). Please see our Enrolment Identification Requirements for guidance on acceptable forms of ID. This form may also include an option to choose modules.

Stage two

Once you have submitted your stage one enrolment, and the Enrolment team have verified your photo and ID, you will be ready to complete stage two. We will send you a confirmation email with instructions to your Edge Hill email account (make sure you set this up before you get here).

It is essential that you complete stage two to confirm your attendance and release your student loan. You will need to do this when you first arrive on campus, this will either be for your induction or if you are living in halls, the day you move in.

Stage two is really simple. Open your confirmation email, click the link, log in using your student number and password and click the ‘Enrol Online’ button. Once you have done this you will have finished the enrolment process.

Remember that you are not enrolled as an Edge Hill student until you have completed both stages of enrolment.

Continuing students

You will enrol online unless we have told you otherwise.

You do not need to come onto campus to enrol.

When you are required to re-enrol instructions will be emailed to your Edge Hill email account. Log in to the enrolment portal using your username and password, check your details and click through the screens, then click ‘submit’.

If you have any outstanding fees or are waiting on the results of a reassessment, you will not be able to enrol.

The ability to enrol is dependent on an assessment board confirming your progression to next year. If you think you still have modules outstanding, contact the assessment team for more information: [email protected]

If you think it might be a fee issue, such as outstanding payments from previous study at Edge Hill, contact the fees team to find out more: [email protected].

If you need to reset your password to log into the enrolment portal, contact the Catalyst helpdesk on [email protected].

You will not receive your Student Finance until you have enrolled in full.

Please email the Enrolment team for more information.

Year one: restart / repeat year / interrupted students

If you are an undergraduate student who will be starting your first year again, having successfully applied to restart or repeat the year, or are returning from interruption back into first year, enrolment will go live for you on the 1st of September.

Pre-course information can be found on our Applicant webpages.

You will be sent an email with enrolment information nearer the time, so keep an eye on your inbox.
