Online Enrolment Step by Step Guidelines August/Sept 2018 - Ulster University
1. Online Enrolment – Introduction
Students are required to enrol for each academic year of their programme of
study and do so online.

New students complete online enrolment from within the University. They are
scheduled to access Online Enrolment during a specified Online Enrolment
session on campus. New students attending a programme at the Coleraine
campus can enrol from outside the University using the information contained
within their joining instructions. This is a pilot for 2018.

Full-time and part-time students who are continuing to the second and
subsequent years of their programme, and all students on distance learning
programmes, enrol from outside the University through the UU Portal
http://portal.ulster.ac.uk/ or via the following link:

https://webapplications.ulster.ac.uk/ole/auth/login

In order to complete Online Enrolment, you need the following information:

Your Student ID (e.g. B00123456)

Your PIN
New Students: This is a 6 digit number printed alongside your student ID on the
enrolment form provided to you by your faculty.
Returning Students: This PIN will remain the same as last year. It is normally
set to your date of birth (format ddmmyy) unless you have changed it
previously. If you are unsure of your PIN, please contact a member of Registry
staff on +44 (0) 28 7012 3450 or email:

       Coleraine:           registryce@ulster.ac.uk
       Jordanstown:         registryjn@ulster.ac.uk
       Magee:               registrymg@ulster.ac.uk
       Belfast:             m.chatterley@ulster.ac.uk

Your Module Details for the coming year:
New Students: modules will be printed on your enrolment form provided to you
by your faculty
Returning students: course directors will advise returning students on module
selection for the academic year. Details of the modules currently available are
contained in your course handbook or in the Modules Catalogue. The Modules
Catalogue can be found in the My Studies tab in the Student Portal
(portal@ulster.ac.uk) or at
www.ulster.ac.uk/courses/modules

Who Can Not Enrol Online?

All students can enrol online except those in the following categories who can
not enrol online:

                                                                             3
Online Enrolment Step by Step Guidelines August/Sept 2018 - Ulster University
Students repeating a year without attendance
Students who have failed modules and are required to repeat these without
attendance in the next academic year, and postgraduate students who are
given additional time to submit their dissertation in the next academic year, do
not enrol online. The Examinations Office will contact these students in regard
to enrolling.

       Students with unpaid tuition fees
Students who owe tuition fees from the previous academic year are prevented
from enrolling until these fees are paid. Such students should contact the Fees
Office at the number given below:

       Telephone: +44 (0)28 7012 4252
       Fax: +44 (0)28 7012 3255
       Email: fees@ulster.ac.uk

       Students with resits
Students who have resits over the summer period will not be permitted to enrol
online until they have successfully passed their resits. Resit results (that is the
Board of Examiners' decision, not marks) will be released between 29 August
2018 and 4 September 2018 on the web. You should enrol online as soon as
possible after that date.

If none of these situations applies to you and you still cannot gain access to
online enrolment this is because you have no registration record for the coming
academic year. The most likely reason why no record exists is that your
progress to the next year of the course has not yet been approved by a Board
of Examiners. You should check your university record in the Portal. Go to the
My Studies tab and click the Examination Board Decision link in the
Examination Services channel. If the progress decision is NOT one of the
following codes;
P1, P3, P4, P5, T1, P7, P8, P9, PB, PC, PD, PE, PF, PG, PH, PP, PX, N1, N2,
N3,
you should contact your Course Director. If your progress information shows
one of the above codes please contact the Registry Helpline or email your
campus Registry Office as indicated above to resolve the problem.

Distance Learning Students
Students on distance learning courses who are unable to access online
enrolment should contact the Registry helpline number +44 (0) 28 7012 3450
or email the Registry Office at Coleraine: registryce@ulster.ac.uk

                                                                                 4

Stage 2G: Graduation (Part-time Students Only)

If you intend to complete your course by June in the academic year for which
you are enrolling then you should tick the box to ensure that you will receive an
invitation to attend graduation.

On completion of the Personal Information stage, all sections will be marked

when all sections are completed and ticked.

                                                                              13
Stage 3: Module Selection
There are four sub-stages within the module selection stage of online enrolment
(though not all students will need to go through all of these.) All students, except
research students, should enrol on at least one module. Students taking
modules in the second semester MUST select these at enrolment at the start
of the academic year. Students have two weeks at the start of the first semester
and three weeks at the start of the second semester in which to add or drop
modules.

Part-time students are reminded that University Regulations stipulate that part-
time students may take no more than a maximum of 45 credits in semester 1,
45 in semester 2 and 20 in semester 3 (subject to course regulations). Students
are responsible for ensuring that they do not exceed this study load.

NB Some students, for example research students, who do not normally take
modules, can proceed to Stage 4 (Fees) of online enrolment after confirming
that they are not taking any modules.

Stage 3A: Mandatory Modules:

If there are mandatory modules on the year of the course on which you are
enrolling, these will be listed. Please ensure that each of the modules you are
taking has a tick in the box beside the module. If there are two options available
for a module code, please ensure you have selected the one with the right
campus/semester (see note below).

Please note: If there are only optional modules on the year of the programme
you are taking then you will not be presented with the Mandatory Modules
screen and will proceed to stage 3b.

*Note: A module may have more than one offering or section. For
example, it may be offered in more than one semester, on more than one
                                                                                 14
campus, at different levels (on undergraduate and postgraduate
programmes) or with different credit points. Each section of a module has
a Course Reference Number (CRN) which uniquely identifies it in a
particular academic year (see example below).

You should not select more than one section (or CRN – Course Reference
Number) for a module if more than one is displayed.

If you are not taking one, or more, of the mandatory modules, perhaps because
you have been granted exemption, then you should drop the module by
ensuring that the tick is removed and the box is blank. However, you will need
to complete, at a later stage, a Module Exemption Form and have it signed by
your Course Director. This will ensure that an exemption for this module is
correctly recorded on your student record. Failure to do so could result in your
award being withheld until the exemption is approved and recorded.

                                         If you are omitting a mandatory
                                         module, click Continue when
                                         prompted with this message

Stage 3B: Optional Modules

Any optional modules available on your programme are listed in this part of
Module Selection.

Please note: If there are only mandatory modules on the year of the programme
you are taking then you will not be presented with the Optional Modules screen
and will proceed to stage 3c.

Please tick the box against each of the optional modules you will be taking.

                                                                               15
*Note: A module may have more than one offering or section. For
example, it may be offered in more than one semester, on more than one
campus, at different levels (on undergraduate and postgraduate
programmes) or with different credit points. Each section of a module has
a Course Reference Number (CRN) which uniquely identifies it in a
particular academic year (see example below).

You should not select more than one section or CRN for a module if more
than one is displayed. Please ensure that you select the correct section
by checking the campus, semester, level and credits of the module.

NB: Modules which have a Type of DL are only for students on
programmes that are offered by distance learning. Only select these
modules if you are registered on a Distance Learning programme

                                                                      16
Stage 3C: Additional Modules

If you have been permitted by your Course Director to take modules that are
not already recorded in the mandatory and optional module selection stages,
you should add these here.

To add a module, use the Find Module by CRN if you know the CRN (the five
digit Course Reference Number) of the module. If you do not know the CRN
number, use the Search for Modules*. Select Subject / Semester / Campus
and click Search

                                                                        17
*Note: A module may have more than one offering or section. For
example, it may be offered in more than one semester, on more than one
campus, at different levels (on undergraduate and postgraduate
programmes) or with different credit points. Each section of a module has
a Course Reference Number (CRN) which uniquely identifies it in a
particular academic year see example below. You may not select more
than one section or CRN for a module.

If you cannot find a module that you are taking you should contact the Helpline
or notify a member of Registry staff who will take steps to resolve the problem.
Occasionally modules are changed or introduced but the Registry Office has
not been informed of this prior to enrolment.

Once you find the required module, tick the check box at the end of the module
row and click Add Module. You will see a Module(s) successfully added
message, and the added module will appear at the bottom of the screen.

To remove an added module, simply click the delete icon (red circle) beside the
added module.

Stage 3D: Confirm Module Selection
This screen enables you to review your module choices.

You may be prompted to delete/add modules if you have selected too many/not
enough credit points for your specific mode of attendance. If you wish to drop
any of these modules or to add others you can do so using the Edit Modules

                                                                             18
button. Once you are satisfied that your choice is correct click Submit and
Proceed to Next Stage.
If you are not required to enrol on any modules (for example, you are a research
student) simply click Submit and Proceed to Next Stage to arrange to pay
your fees.

If you select a module in error you can delete it by clicking the Edit Modules
button and de-selecting the module in the appropriate screen (e.g.
optional/mandatory)

Stage 4: Tuition Fee Payment
In order to complete the enrolment process and become registered for the
academic year you must, where a fee amount due is displayed, select one of
the options available for paying your tuition fees.

NOTE: If you are a graduate of the Ulster University you may be eligible for an
alumni discount. For more information please visit the following page:

http://www.ulster.ac.uk/apply/fees-and-finance/postgraduate

If you are having difficulty completing one of the fees options or wish to pay
your fees by cash or cheque, exit the fees screen and either contact a
member of Fees staff at the central enrolment area if you are enrolling within
the University, or telephone the Fees Office on +44 (0) 28 7012 4252
or visit the Cashier's Office on your campus if you are enrolling outside the
University

                                                                             19
Stage 4A: Sponsor Information

If your employer, a government agency or any other organisation apart from the
Student Loans Company is paying your fees, you must provide a letter to the
Fees Office in advance of registration in order for your account to be updated.
You will not be able to complete registration until this letter is received and
processed. If you are enrolling within the University and are only providing a
letter on the day of registration, please contact a member of Fees staff at the
central enrolment area.
The sponsor letter must detail your student ID number, the value of the
sponsorship, course title and a name and address we can send an invoice to.
If your sponsor requires a purchase order number to be quoted on the invoice,
this should be included in the letter. A sponsor letter is required each academic
year even if your sponsor details have not changed. If your sponsor is only part
paying your fees, you will be required to pay any personal contribution or else
set up an instalment plan at registration.

Stage 4B: Online Payment

The Online Payment option allows you to pay all or part of your fees online by
credit/debit card. Simply select the amount you wish to pay in this way by
inputting the amount or using the slider bar:

Click Continue. You will then be prompted for payment details on the following
screen:

                                                                              20
Please note, if you select this option and you are not paying the full amount,
you will be brought back into the Tuition Fee Payment Screen to account for
the remaining amount (e.g. Direct Debit) before you can complete Online
Enrolment

Stage 4C: Direct Debit Instalment:

In order to complete an online instruction you must be the account holder and
the only person required to authorise debits from the account. If you click this
option, you will be asked if you are sole signatory of the account. If not, you can
download a printable direct debit (DD) instruction:

You can also access the DD instruction on the University website at
