UFS registration on track

2011-01-13 08:12
Bloemfontein - The student registration process at the University of the Free State (UFS) was proceeding well with a large number of students already registered, UFS spokesperson Lacea Loader said on Wednesday.

UFS Vice-Rector: Operations, Professor Niel Viljoen, said the university implemented an online registrations process for senior students this year.

"We are one of the first universities in the country where students can do the entire registration process online themselves."

He said the advantage of the new registration process was that students could register from the comfort of their homes or from any place in the world.

Senior students, who experienced problems during the registration programme from November 1 2010 to January 4 2011, had the opportunity to address it this week.

However, senior students could still register online after Wednesday, until January 28.

First-year students

Loader said the registration process of new first-year students was also proceeding well.

"Although a large number of applications for late registration have been received, it could be handled without difficulty."

First-year students would be welcomed by Rector Jonathan Jansen on Friday January 14, and Saturday 15 January, at the Callie Human Centre on the Bloemfontein Campus.

Next week first-year students would receive academic advice at the Callie Human Centre, whereafter they would be referred for self-registration.

The registration process at the Qwaqwa Campus would also start next week for first-time entering first-year students and senior students.

Classes at the UFS start on January 24.
