CPUT registration goes online

DIGITAL: CPUT students will be able to register online as from January 2012.

CPUT is saying goodbye to long registration queues. As from January 2012 returning students will be able to register online in just under 10 minutes.

The implementation of the Student iEnabler System will fast-track registration, allowing CPUT to register up to 5 000 students a day.

Acting Registrar Nikile Ntsababa said following the traditional registration method allows CPUT officials to register only 1500 students a day.

“We piloted the system sometime ago and all went well. We found it to be a very user friendly system,” said Ntsababa.

In addition to online registration, students will be able to complete electronic payments, update personal information and view their academic records.

Ntsababa said while students can register from the comfort of their homes or anywhere else where they have access to the internet, they can also make use of computer laboratories at CPUT.

During the registration period these laboratories will be manned by registration and faculty staff members, who will guide students through the process and assist with any enquiries.

However, Ntsababa pointed out that the January 2012 registration will be a dual process, with all first year students required to follow the traditional registration process.

Only returning students following certain degree programmes will be allowed to make use of the on-line registration process. Returning students who follow programmes that have not been identified for online registration will also have to follow the traditional process.

Ntsababa said it is envisaged that within the next three years all students will be able to complete a number of administrative processes online, including housing registration and financial applications.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Operations JayanthlalBhana said the implementation of the online registration system is a milestone for the university.

“We are very excited about the progress made in order to ensure that students will find their study at CPUT a rewarding experience, from application, through registration until final graduation,” said Bhana.
