Security and Registration Notice

First year students who plan on registering this week are urged to be cautious about accepting assistance from strangers on any CPUT campus.

Registration is exclusively for students who have received an acceptance letter for a place in one of our programmes.

To keep you and your money safe remember the following:

  1. Registration payments can only be made when you register online or at the cashiers in the Administration building of the Cape Town, Bellville and Wellington campuses. Do not pay any stranger purporting to be a CPUT staff member or student.
  2. Take care when paying a stranger for accommodation. Make sure you are getting what you pay for.
  3. No staff member or student is able to ‘save’ you a place in a programme. Remember no acceptance letter means no place.
  4. Registration Assistants will be well placed across campuses to direct you and answer any questions you may have.

First year registration opens on 16 January 2017 and most students will be able to do so online at http://www.cput.ac.za/students/about/registration. Also check the page for a registration booklet which explains all the necessary information and may save you unnecessary time queuing at a campus. 

Walk-in applications will open on 16 January 2017. Prospective applicants can report to the relevant faculties as from 16 January 2017 for further details.

NSFAS applications are open until 20 January. Find out more at: https://www.cput.ac.za/study/funding/undergraduate/nsfas
