Academic or Course Registration
The academic or course registration procedure shall involve three main steps:

Step 1: Payment of Fees
Continuing Students are required to pay the appropriate Academic Facility User Fees at any branch of the designated bank:
•    Weekend School Students – Ecobank
•    Mainstream Students – Access Bank or Ecobank depending on the bank stated in the admission letter.
Ensure that a correct Student Identification Number is quoted on the pay-in-slips.

The next stage is to log on to https://www.interpayafrica.com/upsa/student  or follow the link on upsa.edu.gh to disburse the payment done at the bank.

Note: (i) It is NOT POSSIBLE to disburse academic facility user fees paid at Ecobank on the     interpay. Please present your Ecobank  pay- in-slips to Students Account Office     (UPSA) located on the 1st Floor of Access Bank UPSA branch for assistance in     case of any difficulty.

    (ii) It takes a minimum of 24hours to register after payment has been made.

Step 2: Course Registration
Proceed to do your on-line course registration. Access the on-line student registration portal by logging on to https://upsasip.com/student. Print out two (2) copies of Proof of Registration Slip upon successful completion of the on-line registration.

Step 3:  Submission and Endorsement of Proof of Registration Slips
Submit the Proof of Registration Slips to the Department Officer for endorsement after which one (1) copy of the Slip will be given back to the student. Weekend Students are, nonetheless, requested to carry out the same process at the Weekend School Secretariat.
Step 3 completes the process of registration.


Add or drop of elective courses
Steps Involved
1.    Follow the link www.upsasip.com to get to your student registration portal which displays information including courses registered for the first semester.
2.    Click to add/drop the desired elective course.
3.    Print out two (2) copies of Proof of Registration Slip after you have successfully completed your add/drop.
4.    Submit the Proof of Registration Slips to your Department Officer for endorsement after which one (1) copy of the Slip will be given back to you. Weekend Students are, nonetheless, requested to carry out the same process at Weekend School Secretariat. Step 4 completes the process of Add/Drop registration.

               Note : Students who have such corrections to make, but fail to do so would be prevented from sitting examinations of elective courses they have not registered or have grade X awarded for elective courses registered but which examinations have not been written.


Resit Registration
Guidelines for the Re-sit Registration:
1.    Pay the re-sit registration fee into the UPSA Access Bank Account and log on http://107.22.240.148/interpay/student or visit upsa.edu.gh to disburse the payment. Each credit hour of a re-sit paper (course) registered attracts a fee of Twenty Ghana Cedis (GH¢20.00) e.g. PBBS 301: Business Statistics is a 3 credit hour paper and therefore attracts a re-sit registration fee of Sixty Ghana Cedis (GH¢60.00).

2.    Use the print-out from the interpay and a proof of registration slip for that semester’s registration to collect the Re-sit Registration Form from the General Office (Room 07) of Academic Affairs, Ground Floor, New Administration Block.

3.    Return the endorsed completed form to the General Office (Academic Affairs).

4.    The proof of registration slip is obtainable on the following day.
