Littlenars’ experience of the new UP Open University Online Registration System

June 3rd, 2012 by Dianne Peña


For a distant “e-learner” student like me, I would always want things about school and needed for school be available online. UP Open University has been very good in providing things online… for instance, the e-book version of the modules, prompt answers to queries via e-mail etc.

The only thing not done in the web is the enrolment system… I would always ask our learning center coordinator for the fees then pay at the bank then “physically” go to the learning center for formal enrolling and claiming of my Form 5 (Certificate of Registration)…

But UPOU didn’t stop in providing students with excellent service…

Here comes the UPOU Online Registration System (ORS)…
For the new students, you are very lucky indeed that you don’t need to claim the enrolment keys etc. to your respective learning centers, you just need to go to the UPOU website.

I am not going to tell you the detailed step by step process here (UPOU management might have my blog down in case. LOL) but rather the first-hand experience of a first time user of their registration system.

It is not my first time to experience the online enrolment because we also have it at FEU during my undergrad years…

It is a known fact that when you chose to study at UPOU, you study at your own pace. You need to ask your program chair/coordinator first regarding the courses you can take or you are allowed to take for the coming semester. I tell you, they reply fast you won’t have a problem waiting.

Then after you are sure of the courses you are going to take (maximum of 6 units) but you can exceed if you were allowed to (some of my classmates were allowed considering their performances on their past subjects), you need to create an account at the UPOU website, Online Registration (ORS).

The step by step process was clear, easy and prompt. You won’t get lost. There is also a PDF file of the steps and the FAQs (frequently asked questions) you can read prior to registration online.

After selecting the subjects you would like to take, you can double check it. Mind you, there is no turning back. There will also be a breakdown of the total fees to be paid.

After you confirmed the said subjects and fees, you will be partially enrolled or “in-process” status until you have uploaded the scanned copy of your payment receipt/slip.

There are several methods of payment via online through credit card, any PNB branch inside and outside the Philippines, bank transfers/remittance centers, credit card through UPOU learning centers and UPOU Los Banos cashier office.

I chose the PNB mode of payment because there’s a PNB branch near home. I just had 2 copies of the payment slip, scanned the other copy and upload it to the ORS. After a day, my enrolment was confirmed via e-mail and yes, I am now a 3rd year MAN student! *Cheers*

As easy as one, two, three and as swift as a breeze.

ORS also includes the breakdown of your grades, profile, downloadable forms, student portal for questions etc.

However, the downside of this mode was that of “own printing” of Form 5. It doesn’t seem legit to “others” if you submit it as proof of your enrollment. I suggest there should be a note there that it is officially/electronically signed/printed or anything that would make it “legit” for that matter.

P.S I did by the way dropped by the learning center to claim my module even if it is uploaded in moodle. LOL

    […] transactions- meaning, you don’t have to go to school just to have a transaction. We have an online enrollment system, an online forum-slash-classroom called “MyPortal” or “Moodle” exclusively […]

    Make sure you already know you have the cash to pay off
    this loan, if not you will end up looking at extensions and becoming yourself right
    into a financial hole that’s difficult to dig out.

    This way you can get the borrowed funds approved from the bank
    of the choice which too without going anywhere.

    If you’re still hung up about the indisputable fact that secured personal loans are much better than payday loans then look
    at this, online loans fulfill your immediate short-term needs, and might be repaid in your next payday.
