Registration Procedure for Fresh Students

It is a very important requirement of the University that all students (both fresh and continuing) register at the beginning of every semester. The first-time registration for fresh students, which is more elaborate, is normally held during the period of registration stated on the admission letter.

Unverified On-line Course Registration

All fresh students are requested to do the unverified on-line registration as follows:

  • Your USIS student portal will display the courses you are supposed to register for the semester.
  • Click on “click to register courses” to register for courses you will do for the first semester 2024/2025 academic year.
  • Print out “NOT VERIFIED” proof of registration generated for submission at the registration point.

Medical Examination

Every aspect of a fresh student’s medical screening shall be done at the University’s Clinic and shall include the following:

  • Taking of vitals
  • Eye testing
  • Laboratory investigation
  • Chest X-Ray
  • Physical examination

Fresh students are expected to report at the UPSA Clinic on the scheduled date and time after their course registration to start the medical screening. The scheduled date and time of the medical screening for every fresh student will be communicated via SMS. All fresh students are requested to complete the Health Information of Student Form downloaded with the admission letter.

Please bring along this form when coming for the medical screening. Note that medical screening is part of the registration exercise for fresh students and therefore students must be cautioned that unless the medical screening is completed and a report issued, duly signed and stamped by a Medical Officer of the University, fresh students cannot proceed with the final stage of registration (i.e. acquisition of student’s ID card).

Acquisition of Student’s ID Card

Send your verified proof of registration slip and medical report duly endorsed by UPSA Medical Officer to your department office to collect your student’s ID card on your scheduled date. The acquisition of your ID card completes the registration process as a fresh student.

Orientation Exercise

The University organises orientation for fresh students after the admissions process has been completed to inform them about what pertains in the university system. Some of the areas talked about include the University library and its resources, the University clinic, Academic Affairs, security on campus, University rules and regulations, dress code, fire prevention on campus, etc. At orientation events, students are grouped under sessions. The sessions are in: Regular, Evening, and Weekend.


Matriculation is an important event where a fresh student is officially initiated as a student of UPSA. Fresh students must satisfy all the requirements and obligations set by the University before he/she is matriculated. These include registration, medical screening, orientation, etc. Any student who fails to be matriculated without any valid reason will not be accepted as a student of UPSA.
