Enrolment For 2023

We are now accepting enrolment applications for 2023.  Please be aware that Selwyn College has an Enrolment Scheme which means we have a zone. You can see our current zone here.


Please use the ‘Checklist for Enrolment’ in the links on the right to ensure all requirements for the enrolment process are completed.

Once the application has been received, we will contact all in zone students as well as students in Priorities 1 and 2 in the Enrolment Scheme to make an appointment for an enrolment interview. 

Please call 521 9610 ext 651 for all enrolment-related enquiries.
We welcome enrolments from ORS-funded students to join our Totara Learning Centre.
