Student Registration

The Minister will determine the number of students to be admitted annually in the parallel programs, the entry requirements, and the tuition fees, if any, after obtaining the approval of the competent authority.

Student Registration is taken care of by the Admission and Registration Department, assisted by the academic advisors under the overall supervision of the College Registrar. The registration process is completed as per the academic schedule approved by UTAS. The registrar prepares course timetables and coordinates with department registrars. A student database containing enrollment, withdrawals, dismissals, postponements, graduates and transfer to other university is maintained with the utmost security and confidentiality.

The student is personally responsible for registration, under the supervision of the assigned academic advisor. Registration by a student representative will not be accepted under any circumstances. Students who fail to register within the deadline for reasons accepted by the Dean may register within one week from the set date of commencement of classes. Once accepted and admitted, a file will be created for the student, containing the evidence of acceptance, data, information and documents. The contents of the file will be confidential. The university is authorized to provide the student or his/her guardian with any information pertaining to the student.

UTAS has provided an Online Registration System (Information Management System) wherein advisors as well as students can register and print a copy of the timetable immediately after the completion of the registration process.
