Enrolment 2017

We aim to make enrolment as quick and easy as possible. You just need to bring a few things with you and sign a couple of forms. Many other new students will be there too. So the Atrium may be busy and noisy but a member of staff will see you and get you enrolled as soon as possible.

Below are the top questions we get asked about enrolment day. If you have another question, give us a call on 01473 382200 or email ccas@suffolk.ac.uk

What do I need to bring?

Personal ID - like a passport, proof of address, along with your GCSE results slip or certificates (originals not copies). In addition you'll need proof, if this applies to you, that you have a learner loan in place (either a loan letter, email or other evidence). If you need to apply for a loan click here.

Where do I go first?

Go through the main entrance of the College and you’ll be in the Atrium. You’ll then be directed by a member of staff to the maths and English area. Look out for people wearing pink Suffolk New College T-shirts: they’re here to help.

Who do I have to see?

First, a member of staff will assess your maths and English and then you’ll meet your course tutor. Finally another member of staff will help you complete, print and sign your Learner Agreement.

Do I have to go to different places to enrol on different courses (i.e. my course and the maths and English GCSE)?

No. The maths and English area is for assessment purposes. After that, you’ll walk over to the far wall of the Atrium to be directed to your course meeting room. Most of the enrolment takes place in or near the Atrium.

What do I have to do to be enrolled?

You need to show your GCSE results either through your certificates or your results slips. After this you’ll go through your course details with your course tutor and then complete and sign your Learner Agreement. If you need to pay any fees, this is when you’ll do it. That’s it, you’ve enrolled.

What if I’m on holiday over the enrolment period?

As soon as you come back, call the College and ask to speak to the course tutor or the course department. You can then arrange an enrolment appointment with your course tutor.

What do I get on the enrolment day?

You’ll come away with your Suffolk New College student ID card and lanyard. They always go together and they’ll allow you access to the College on the first day of term. You must always wear them when attending the College.   

Will I get my timetable?

Not a timetable but you will get your course start date. Timetables will be given out by your tutors after the first day of the course.

Do I meet any of my teachers?

Yes, you’ll meet your course tutor who will go over the details of your course and answer any questions you may have.

Do parents go with me? 

You can bring your parents if you want. They will have to accompany you as you move through the enrolment process as our reception waiting area can’t accommodate too many people.

What time do I need to be there?

Your start time for enrolment is on your enrolment letter. Please try to arrive as close to that time as you can.
If you have any problems with your time please give us a call on 01473 382200 or email ccas@suffolk.ac.uk

What is IAG?

This is Information, Advice and Guidance. It’s available to you throughout enrolment. Just ask us! 

If I need to make a payment, do I pay on enrolment day? How can I pay?

If you do need to make a payment you must do it on enrolment day. So you’ll be directed to a till where you can pay fees, or trips and material costs. You can pay by cash, cheque, most major debit or credit card. 

If you have a learner loan in place, please remember to bring in evidence such as a loan letter or email. If you still need to apply for a loan click here.

I am progressing to the next level and have already enrolled but haven't got an ID card yet?

As you are progressing and have already enrolled, your tutors will have your new ID card and will meet you in the atrium on your first day back!


You can leave by the main entrance and we’ll see you on the first day of term!
