  • Always use only your student number as reference when making payments.
  • Allow at least five working days for processing by your bank and retain the proof of payment (deposit slip).
  • Do not email your deposit slip to UP, unless specifically requested to do so. Emailing the deposit slip to UP will NOT reduce processing time at the University and will NOT allow same day services, especially during registration.
  • No payment arrangements can be made for the registration fee or residence reservation fee.
  • No cash payments for tuition fees will be allowed on the Hillcrest campus during registration (including initial payments).
  • EFT payments will not be available on the same day. Not even cash deposits.
  • For the ABSA on-line banking page, click here for help on setting up first time on-line banking. Search with ‘UNI’ as beneficiary and choose ‘students’ option. This will reflect UP’s bank account number 214 000 0054 when making a payment and will allow you to use your student number as reference.
  • Communication from Absa states that as of 1 May 2018, manually entered transactions on a point of sale device (card machine) will no longer be permitted i.e. payments will not be processed unless a card is presented for payment.
  • Kindly note that the use of cheques to make and receive payments will be discontinued industrywide from 01 January 2021 in South Africa.


International payments

Can be made using a credit card (provided you have 3D one-time pin security in place with your own bank) on the university website, or by doing a SWIFT transfer from your bank in your own country.
