WHERE CAN I REGISTER?
On-line registration via this UL service is obligatory for all the optional
university courses, foreign language courses and examinations, PE courses and
for courses required to be awarded a teaching qualification.
Students must enrol IN PERSON, and ONLY via the UL service.
Students may register from any computer with the Internet connection, be it at
home or in an internet café.
Holders of the Main University Library card may use any of the computers in the Library open space.
At the University campuses, you can register in any computer cluster or lab.
HOW TO LOG INTO THE SYSTEM?
In order to log into the system, Polish students are required to enter their
PESEL number as a login and a password, which is provided in the Dean's Office.
Incoming students who do not have a PESEL number can receive the USOS PIN and
a password in the International Relations Office, at Pałac Kazimierzowski
(Casimir Palace) inside the Main Campus.
If the system does not allow a student to log in or does not recognise him/her,
s/he should report it at a Dean's office and ask for help. Distant assistance
(via the Internet or phone) in such cases is impossible.
In case a student does not remember his/her password, the
password generating mechanism should be used.
GENERAL RULES OF REGISTRATION
Each registration consists of one or more rounds. A registration round
is a certain period of time when students may enrol on all the courses
offered in a given registration.
As a rule, the first round of registration is dedicated. In each dedicated round,
all or some of the given courses are reserved for students of certain faculties only.
It means that only these students may register/enrol on these dedicated courses. All
the other students may choose courses which are open to all, or wait for the second
round of registration.
Registration is done through the order of application ("first come, first served"),
up to the limit of places available in each group.
Some courses consist of both lectures and classes. In such a case, students wishing
to take the course should register separately for a lecture and for a class.
The number of ECTS credits indicated next to a lecture and a class on the same course
(bearing the same course code) refers to the whole course (both the lecture and class
constituting the same course). In others words, 2 ECTS credits next to the lecture and
2 ECTS credits next to the class mean that only 2 ECTS credits will be awarded for
successful completion of the course (not 4 ECTS).
In the case of courses being available and run on-line, the registration process consists
of two steps:
NOTA BENE: Students should not create new accounts on this platform, but log
in with the PESEL number and same password which they use to log into the USOS-web,
UL and all the other university systems. Only those students who are registered for
a given course in UL and have successfully logged into the education platform can
participate in the on-line course.
To register for chosen classes or exams, a student must be allocated "tokens"
(virtual currency) by the Dean's Office.
The following token types are used at the University of Warsaw:
- EGZ-JO - foreign language examinations,
- EGZ-PED - teaching qualification examinations,
- LEK - foreign language courses,
- OG - optional university courses open to all,
- OGP - lectures for foreigners organised by the Centre
of Polish Language and Culture for Foreigners "POLONICUM",
- PED - teaching qualification courses,
- POL - Polish language courses organised by the Centre
of Polish Language and Culture for Foreigners "POLONICUM",
- WF - PE courses,
- WPIA-SPEC - specialised lectures by the Faculty of Law
The system aims at avoiding "over-registration", i.e. it does not allow
students to register for too many courses/examinations or to reserve places
in a number of groups "just in case". Usually, during the first round of
registration, students may enrol on one course only. During the next rounds,
s/he may enrol on additional courses provided there are free places available.
If a student has not exceeded the limit of tokens s/he may use in a given
round of registration but does not have enough tokens, then:
- If a fee-paying registration is launched for a given course, then the system
will allow registration, but it will charge a fee (resulting from the price of 1
token). Language courses and language exam tokens have their real value expressed
in PLN. Students are advised to learn the price before registration for the
fee-paying courses. Detailed information is available in the Deans' offices.
- If a fee-paying registration is not launched for a given course, then the
system will not allow a fee-paying registration.
A successful registration for a given course results in spending a particular
amount of tokens as a "payment" for the course. If a student did not participate
in classes, but did not unregister from the course in time, s/he has used those
tokens, and they cannot be retrieved.
If a student has used all his/her OG tokens, but has not received credits for all
the OG courses required in a study programme, then s/he may apply for additional
tokens at the students section in a Dean's Office. However the request may be
refused if the tokens have been misused by the student.
If a student has used all tokens other than the OG type but has not received
credits required in a study programme, then s/he may apply for additional tokens
at a University unit providing the courses in question e.g.: a request for
additional WF tokens (for PE courses) should be directed to the Physical Education
and Sports Centre of the University. The request may be refused if the tokens have
been misused by the student.
All inquires concerning tokens for optional university courses (OG) should be
directed towards the students section of a Dean's Office only. Distant assistance
(via the Internet or phone) is impossible in such cases.
All enquires concerning OTHER tokens than the OG type should be directed exclusively
to the units offering the respective courses. For example: all matters related to PE
courses should be resolved by the Physical Education and Sports Centre of the University.
Distant assistance (via the Internet or phone) is impossible in such cases. NOTA BENE:
an exception from this rule is described below.
If at the beginning of the semester, by mistake, a proper number of tokens have not
been allocated to the student, s/he should report this problem to the student section
of the Dean's Office - ALSO in the case of problems with tokens OTHER than the OG type.
For example: if a student should receive a particular number of tokens for a PE course
- WF type, but has received fewer ones than expected, then to settle this problem the
student should NOT go to the Physical Education and Sports Centre of the University,
but to the students section of a Dean's Office.
