FAQ

Tuition fees per faculty

Once students are registered, their own specific student account details and information about possible rebates can be found on the UP Student Portal “Student Centre”.

  • If you are a first time user of the UP Portal, go to https:http://www.up.ac.za/portal click on “New User” and enter your student number (u00000000) as username.  Type in your ID/passport number and click on Proceed.
  • Non-South African citizens please refer to notes on international fees.
  • Average fees for the nine faculties are set out in the tables below and are based on the average cost of the study programme.
  • Fees do not include the cost of prescribed books, stationery or other study-related expenses.
  • If a degree is completed mid-year, AND a new degree is registered for in the same year thereafter, the FULL tuition fees are immediately payable on registration. Full fees are payable by end July of any study year, irrespective of when in the year the programme was registered for. Any amounts still outstanding after 31 July, will result in the blocking of access to academic records.

 

NOTE: Pay registration fee early.

During the January registration period, the queues at the UP cashiers are excessively long, and may delay your progress for hours. Avoid these long payment queues during the registration period by paying the registration fee directly into the University’s bank account, at least 5 DAYS BEFORE your registration date.

 

  • This will allow for adequate processing time in this very busy time of the year and will ensure that you are not financially blocked which will prevent you from registering.
  • Submit proof of any bursary to the Student Service Centre (SSC) preferably two weeks before registration, so that UP can record it in the system, and if applicable, waive the payment of the registration fee. 
  • Keep your proof of your payment (or copy of your bursary letter) with you during the registration period.

No student may register before they have either:

-     paid the initial registration fee AT LEAST 5 DAYS BEFORE registration

      or

-     provided proof of a bursary/loan from an external provider AT LEAST 5 DAYS BEFORE registration
