How To Check UJ Application Status and the Registration Process

If you have applied for admission into the University of Johannesburg, you must always take the time to check and see if you have been offered admission, even though most times, you will receive a mail to that effect. However, if you have not received it or you need to be very sure, there are several other ways you can check UJ application status.

While checking your admission status is easy and straightforward, the registration process is also easy if you have successfully been admitted. The process of checking admission status for new students is different from the process for returning students, and in the same way, the registration process also differs for the two.

Simple Steps To Check UJ Application Status As A New Student

The easiest and most convenient process to check this is through the website of the university. Here are the steps to follow:

  • Go to the University’s website through this link:
  • Hover over the Study@UJ menu for a dropdown to appear
  • Go ahead and click on Check Your Status under the menu
  • You can either put in your Student Number or Passport Number
  • Verify that you are human by texting in the code you see in the CAPTCHA box
  • Select the year for which admission you want to check and click on search. The response to your application query will immediately appear.
  • Go to the Admission letter section and see if you have been offered admission; you can now download the letter.

Note: Apart from your application status, you can also check several other documents on the same page and download useful letters, not just the admission letter.

Prospective students must continue to check their application status to start getting set for the registration process. You will also be notified about your admission status by the university via SMS or email.

As stated, checking the UJ application status for students of the University of Johannesburg who are returning is different from the new student’s process. This is because, on the page where you can check your admission status, only three years are available for one to select and search.

If you are an old or returning student who wants to check the status, all you need to do is call 011 559 4555.

Here Are All The Steps To Take During The Registration Process

If you are successful with your application process and have been offered admission, you will need to register within the registration window. Late registration attracts a penalty in the form of additional fees, while failure to register may cost you your admission, even after that period.

  • Next, click on ITS iENABLER under administrative utilities.
  • The next thing you want to do is to click on Registration and Payments.
  • Once you click on Registration, that will allow you to start the registration process properly.
  • After you must have completed your registration successfully, you will need to review the registration to ensure that everything is correctly done before submitting and printing. You will need to safely keep proof of registration as it may come in handy later.
