Step 2: Register details
Using your Monash account, you can now login to register your details in the WES (Web Enrolment System).

Register your details
You'll need to agree to the education and health cover rules for overseas students. Next, work your way through the Enrolment Summary screen to:
- update your contact information
- fill out the enrolment questionnaire
Managing your account
The most important thing to remember about your Monash account is that it needs to be up to date!
If you change address, phone number, personal email address or subjects we need to know! Making sure your Monash College account profile has the correct information will prevent problems and make your life easier.
Step 3: Order your Monash student ID card
You may continue to this step only after you have successfully set up your Monash account and attended first day of Orientation. If you had a Monash ID card from an earlier course, you may skip this step and use the current card until it is expired.
TIP: The first step requires you to upload some photo ID such as your passport to verify your identity. This is separate to the photo you provide for your student card.
- Login to the Web Enrolment System.
- In the Student Services section, go to Submit your photo for an ID card option and then click Submit your photo.
- Scan and submit your passport photo page (page or pages with both photo and information) as proof of your identity. The photo of your passport should include your name, date of birth, country of origin, etc View a sample of a passport photo page.
- Submit your individual photo for your student ID card. View photograph guidelines
- Confirm your details page, verify that your ID, name and email address is correct. For Delivery Method, click the Receive by Mail option.
Receiving your ID card
Once your ID card is printed and ready, it will be posted to your Melbourne personal postal address that you updated on the Web Enrolment System. Make sure you have updated your details to have your correct accommodation address. We don't post cards outside Australia.
