Online Registration

UP registrations for the 2020 academic year are fully online. Online registration is available from 3 January 2020 for returning students (accessible via the UP Student Centre) and from 13 January 2020 for new students. The fact that you are on this page, shows that you have already decided to #ChooseUP as your ideal institution to further your studies. By now, you should already know what you want to study as well. The next step would be to register for your chosen course. If you still need to obtain your degree to land that dream job (in other words, you have not worn your graduation gown and cap yet), you are known as an undergraduate student. You are just starting out and getting your wings ready to [email protected] and graduate on time. The registration process can be quite daunting at first, but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. For a to-do list of the January 2020 registration process, and to see what will happen next, download the Student Steps PDF here. For more information, check out the Online Registration Guidelines below. Should you need any assistance, come to the Hillcrest Campus from 13 January 2020 with your ID in hand.
