THINGS TO DO AFTER ENROLLING AS A NEW POSTGRADUATE STUDENT

The following are things to do after you have successfully registered no matter where you are at the moment.

 

Step 1: Download all related documents in the PutraENROLL for future use.

New students must download:

  • Registration Checklist for New Students
  • Enrolment Confirmation Slip for New Students
  • Health Examination Report Form

 

Step 2: Activate UPM-ID

Putra UPM ID is a database system used to access the UPM online system such as PUTRAVID (Virtual Student ID), student email, hotspot, Student Portal, PutraBLAST and many more. Therefore, please activate your UPM ID as soon as you receive the matric number.

 

Step 3: Register Courses

Course registration must be done during the stipulated period through Student Portal using the username and password created during the UPM-ID activation. You are advised to refer to the SGS website for the course schedules or if it is not available, please refer to your advisor or respective faculty/school/institute.

 

Step 4: Pay the Credit Fees by the deadline.

Pay the credit fee not later than the third week of the semester to avoid any changes in the student's study status.  The receipt of payment should be emailed to bursar.student_pg@upm.edu.my.

 

Step 5: Preparing to Enter Malaysia 

New students must enter Malaysia with SEV before the expiration date of the eVAL. Please do NOT enter Malaysia earlier than 7 days before the registration period. Otherwise, it may result in an additional cost for visa and pass processing. You are advised to complete the online registration before travelling.

All new students are required to do a health examination as soon as possible after completing registration.

a) Local new students can do it at any clinic or hospital throughout Malaysia by using our health examination form. The health examination report must be submitted to University Health Centre (PKU) for endorsement during the verification of the registration process.

b) Health examinations for International new students must be carried out in the University Health Centre (PKU) after they arrived in Malaysia. Book an appointment slot for Health Examination by log in to your Postgraduate Student Portal.

Students who do not comply with the requirement of 80% of attendance without any reasonable excuse, shall be barred from sitting for the final examination, and the student shall be given zero marks for the final examination of the course of studies.
