Registration guide

NOTE: that all international students must first report for Pre-registration clearance before proceeding with registration.

Online registration is the primary registration mode at CPUT and all students are required to register online (except for a small number of qualifications listed in the registration booklet).

Students must register online before the on-campus support dates and can register from the comfort of your own home, or wherever you have internet access. If you register off-campus, email assistance will be available.

If you experience problems that cannot be resolved via email or phone, you can register in one of the dedicated computer laboratories specifically allocated for online registration support.

Specifications for your computer: Internet Explorer 7 or higher, with Adobe Acrobat Reader 7 or higher. No other browsers are certified for online registrations at CPUT.

There is an online registration support document for your convenience and is available on our website
