You will not be able to register if you have not paid your initial registration fee or have not completed your online enrolment contract, printed it, signed (guide on how to sign the contract) and submitted it to UP.

Outstanding library material may also accrue charges that will prevent you from registering even if you paid your initial registration fees.

Initial Registration Fee

In order to facilitate registration, you are requested to make all initial payments (internet transfers or direct payment into the University's bank account) at least FIVE days before registration to allow for processing time.

If you are a bursary holder, you are required to email a confirmation letter from your sponsor/bursar at least FIVE days prior to registration. Please email the letter to [email protected], if this is not done, you will have to pay the initial fee before registration.

NSFAS-funded students need not pay the initial registration fee or submit any proof. As soon as your funding is confirmed by the authorities, the financial hold will be lifted and you will be able to register.

Citizens from countries other than South Africa (students who are not South African citizens)

All students who are not South African citizens are required to email us your proof of medical aid and study permit before registration. Please email the documents to [email protected]
