Apply to UMP using the hardcopy application

Application Fees for University of Mpumalanga:

South African applicants are required to pay an application fee of R150. For individuals applying from outside of South Africa, you need to pay the following application fee:

  • SADC: R150
  • Other African countries: R350
  • Countries outside Africa: R500

Submitting Results and Documents:

School learners must ensure that all examination results from Grade 11 until September of Grade 12 are submitted. Failure to do such may result in delays within the student’s application process. You might find that you applied early in Grade 12 and thus only sent in your final Grade 11 results. If this is true, as the year progresses and you receive more results keep sending them through to UMP, that way they will have all your results by the time finals come around.

Transferring students should also ensure that all transcripts and academic records are submitted as early as possible as well as that a final transcript of current studies being undertaken reaches the Admissions Office as soon as possible after receipt.
Make sure to also submit the following:

  • Copy of your ID
  • Proof of Payment for the application fee
  • Any additional documents which may be relevant to your application.

You’re almost done! Now all that’s left to do is to wait. Keep a look out for your acceptance and/or provisional acceptance letter.
