WHERE CAN I REGISTER?

  1. 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.

  2. Students may register from any computer with the Internet connection, be it at home or in an internet café.

  3. Holders of the Main University Library card may use any of the computers in the Library open space.

  4. At the University campuses, you can register in any computer cluster or lab.

HOW TO LOG INTO THE SYSTEM?

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. In case a student does not remember his/her password, the password generating mechanism should be used.

GENERAL RULES OF REGISTRATION

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Registration is done through the order of application ("first come, first served"), up to the limit of places available in each group.

  4. 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.

  5. 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).

  6. 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.

TOKENS

  1. To register for chosen classes or exams, a student must be allocated "tokens" (virtual currency) by the Dean's Office.

  2. 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 and Administration.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
