2022 Acceptance List for PNG Universities and Colleges

Our readers have asked about the 2022 Acceptance List for PNG Universities, especially the PDF lists for Non-school Leavers, School Leavers and Continuing Students. In this article, we provide brief responses to some of the frequently asked questions. The responses will give you an idea about what to expect between now and early February 2022. 

So, read on and be ready as a non-school leaver, school leaver or continuing student.  

Also, check out the RECOMMENDED BLUE LINKS in this article. They give in-depth details to the pressing questions many students and parents are asking at present.

IMPORTANT: The 2022 Acceptance Lists for all the Tertiary Institutions will FIRST appear on the university's website or newspapers before they are shared through the social media channels and other websites. Be reminded that it is important to check the non-school leavers, school leavers and continuing students acceptance list from the university's website or in the newspapers. 

On PNG Insight, we have direct links to each of the PNG University websites - here is the checklist for you to confirm if the Acceptance Lists for 2022 are out.

Non-school Leavers Acceptance List

The 2022 non-school leavers' acceptance list contains the names of students who are NOT the 2021 Grade 12 students. This list also includes foreign students and PNG students who apply from the US, NZ, Australia, Singapore or other overseas schools.

The NSL list is usually published by the university of your choice, not DHERST. That means that the universities (that you applied to) will publish the non-school leavers' selection list PDF before the academic year starts. So you must check with the university!

One top tip is to check your preferred uni website for the past year's NSL selection lists if it is still up on their website. The publication date will give you a good idea about WHEN they are likely to release the 2022 selection list for the non-school leavers' intake. 

Alternatively, PNG Insight keeps a checklist to help you follow up. You can check IF your university's 2022 Non-school Leavers Acceptance List is out.

2022 Continuing Students Acceptance List

If you are a continuing student, your university will put out the continuing students' acceptance lists at the end of the academic year or over the 2021/2022 Christmas holiday. It is your responsibility to find out your GPA and possible TESAS Status for the academic year 2022.

The best thing to do is to contact the Student Admin or the university or college Registrar and find out if they've released the 2022 Continuing Students Acceptance List. And importantly, check to see that your name is on the list. 

The University of Goroka (UoG) did well last year by informing its continuing students about their status before they went home for the Christmas holiday. We hope UoG does the same this year because it helps massively with the registration and orientation of its NEW students.

In fact, the other universities and colleges in PNG should do the same by informing the Continuing Students to avoid the long queues and unnecessary delays during the registration week.

2022 School Leavers Selections Lists - DHERST

The Grade 12 School Leavers Selections is solely done by DHERST (Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology) through its National Online Application System (NOAS) and National  Online Selection System (NOSS).

If you are a 2021 Grade 12 student, your selections and the announcement of your TESAS status will be formally done by DHERST. 

When are PNG Universities and Colleges 2022 Acceptance List PDF coming out?

By now the Grade 12 Schools Leavers should know whether they are selected to a University or College, or not. 

In fact, the higher education department launched the Grade 12 National Online Selection on the 21st of December 2021. 

But the non-school leavers and continuing students will have to wait untill ALL the names (quotas from each university and college) has been confirmed, compiled and released to the general public. 

Only then, the students should be able to know their confirmed SELECTION STATUS, as well as their final TESAS STATUS.

Here is a detailed article about when DHERST is likely to release the 2022 Acceptance List for PNG Universities and Colleges

Check out this video info we provided last year - it is still relevant to this year's selections and release of the 2022 Acceptance List PDF

Are you on TESAS?

DHERST used different statuses to indicate the TESAS Awards for selected students. 

The awards are based on the PNG govt’s yearly sponsorship for students under the AES and HECAS categories, excluding the self-sponsored or corporate and overseas govt sponsored students. 

Read this article for the meaning of the acronyms (TESAS, AES & HECAS) and what they mean.

So how will the NSLs, Grade 12 SLs and Continuing Students know if you are on TESAS or not? You can CONFIRM your scholarship status (whether you are on TESAS or self-sponsored) through the final (official) 2022 Acceptance List released by DHERST.

What to do as a Self-sponsored student?

Perhaps the important thing is to confirm your PNG GOVT SCHOLARSHIP (TESAS) status on the 2022 Tertiary Institution's Acceptance List

As the name implies, if you are a self-sponsored student you'll have to pay your own fees before the registration and orientation. 

If you do not pay the required fees, your place will be forfeited - another student in the admission pool who has the money will take your place.

Check with your university or college to confirm how much you MUST pay to register. In addition, this information will be contained in the Acceptance Letter your institution send to you. Make sure you read and understand what you must do before admission.

The best tip is to pay only the required amount, register and apply for the PNG govt's HELP program - read how to apply below.

Secure HELP - PNG Govt Scholarship

DHERST will facilitate the Student Loan Scheme (HELP or Higher Education Loan Program). 

If you are a self-sponsored student, you'll have to pay your fee for the first semester of 2022 and apply for the HELP loan.

The Continuing students and School Leavers can apply for the HELP loan program through their university or college. This also includes those who are doing their masters or doctorate studies. 

Check with your institution and ask for a HELP student loan application form. Also, find out about the due date and what to do so that your application is successful.

What to do if you are on DHERST's Admission Pool?

If you are a student on DHERST's admission pool, you'll have to log in to your National Online Selection Account between now and before the academic year 2022 starts to see if you have been offered a placement at a university or college in PNG.

This year's (2021/2022) selection had 
  • 31, 817 students nominated to sit the exams; 
  • 26,544 students certified; 
  • 16,171 total HEI quota for 2021; and
  • 10,373 Grade 12 students will NOT be selected for 2022 HEI studies.
The good news is that there are 6,319 spaces (formally called quotas) to be filled via the Admission Pool. 

So, keep checking to see if you are one of the lucky ones from the admission pool admitted to a university or college.

When will DHERST Publish 2022 Grade 12 Selection Lists for HEIs?

The higher education department (DHERST) launched the Grade 12 National Online Selection on the 21st of December 2021. So what does the launching mean; and when will DHERST publish the 2022 Grade 12 Selections Lists for the tertiary institutions in the country?

Here are 5 points that students, parents and guardians should know as they check their names on National Online Selection System (NOAS).

Students to check their selection status (1)

Students can view their selection STATUS through their individual National Online Application Accounts. That means that the 2021 Grade 12 students should use their NOAS login details to access their accounts and confirm their selection status for 2022.

By now you (Grade 12 student) should know if you have secured a tertiary institution placement, or not. 

In fact, this is the final outcome of your School Leaver's Choice on the National Online Application System. 

The selection status on DHERST National Online Selection System is 'provisional' only. That means two things: 

  • first, the HEI will send you an offer letter, also called the acceptance letter, to confirm your placement with the institution; and
  • second, DHERST will formally publish your name on the 2022 Grade 12 selection list PDF on its website.

What should you do if you are selected? (2)

Congratulations if you are selected to continue to a tertiary institution in 2022. There are several things that you should find out. 
  • Are you on TESAS (AES, HECAS)?
  • Will you be a SELF-SPONSORED student?
  • When are you likely to see your name on the 2022 DHERST selection list?
  • When is the 2022 REGISTRATION and ORIENTATION WEEK?
  • Should you inform your institution that you've accepted that offer?
At least, try to find out the answer to the 5 questions as you prepare to go to your new school. 

Here is an article that can help you prepare for the registration and orientation week. It gives details to documents you need to present at registration, fees and what to do to get yourself prepared for the new academic year.

DHERST new Grade 12 data (3)

Note that there are ONLY 16,171 spaces available at the Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in Papua New Guinea according to DHERST's new data

For the 2022 Academic Year, there were 

  • 31, 817 students nominated to sit the exams; 
  • 26,544 students certified;
  • 16,171 total HEI quota ; 
  • 10,373 Grade 12 students will NOT be selected for 2022 HEI studies.

Many Grade 12 students, like in the past years, will not get an HEI placement though they may have really good grades.

If you have secured a placement, you should be proud of yourself!

Important Announcement from DHERST 2022 (4)

DHERST and HEIs will use Grade 12 students' data in the National Online Application System (NOAS) to confirm their selections. Here is what DHERST has to say:
  • Your (Grade 12 Students) data from the MyNOAS data field has been forwarded to the Higher Education Institution that selected you.  The HEI will communicate directly with you to inform you about the specific details of the institution, including how to accept your offer. 
  • Note that the response contained therein (in the NOSS) is not an admission confirmation. You should expect to receive official notice through an admissions offer letter directly from your Higher Education Institution (HEI).
Over 10,370 Grade 12 students will NOT be selected for 2022 HEI studies. If you feel that you have made the Grade, but missed out, here is a story that will inspire you. 

Read about Sharlyne's story. She completed Grade 12 at Marianville Secondary School. Her Grade Point Average (GPA) was above the cut-off mark for entry into UPNG, but she missed out on the selection.

When will DHERST Publish 2022 Grade 12 Selections Lists for HEIs?


DHERST announced that it would publish the Grade 12 selection List for 2021 on the 8th of January 2021.

The higher education department has not given a definite date for 2022, yet. The info that went out to students via the MYNOAS has the date for last year's selection.

Meanwhile, we think that DHERST will do the same this year, publish the final 2022 selection list EARLY IN JANUARY 2022. Just to be sure, please check in to your MyNOAS for the latest news and updates from DHERST

This is the final list that will confirm your selection to an HEI for 2022.

2021 Grade 12 Students SLF Grace Period - Why GP is Important

 2021 DHERST GRACE PERIOD: Present Grade 12 students are in a privileged position to make the right choices on their Grade 12 School Leavers.

DHERST Online Application 2021 (NAOS)

Firstly, the National Online Application System (NOAS) gives the students the right choice upfront by highlighting (in red) the 'ineligible' options. There is no room for getting the choices wrong. Secondly, the students have 5 choices. That means 5 chances of getting into a tertiary institution. 

In the past, the Grade 12 students did not have the chance to change their choices after they've filled the manual School Leaver's Form (SLF). Nor do the past students have 5 choices, they were limited to only 3 choices.

The Grade 12 students should make full use of the Grace period and maximise their chances of securing a space for 2022 at a tertiary institution in the country.

When will DHERST formally publish the 2022 Grade 12 selection List for HEIs?

Important 2021 Dates and Expectations

Here are some important dates for examinations, results and selections in Papua New Guinea.

PNG INSIGHT UPDATES: Here are some important dates for examinations, results and selections in Papua New Guinea:

  • Tuesday 21st December 2021: DHERST launches 2021 selection for 2022 academic year
  • Tuesday 14th - Friday 17th December 2021: NOAS grace period
  • Sunday 12th December 2021: Education Department through MSD releases Grade 12 Exam Results to Higher Education Department, DHERST.
  • Thursday 9th December 2021: Grade 10 and 12 Exam Results Launched, students can check their results now.

  • 5th December 2021: Education Officers/GES start 2022 Grade 11 Selections (GRADE 11 SELECTION NOW IN PROGRESS)
  • Grade 10 National Examinations: 11th to 15th October 2021.
  • Grade 12 National Examinations:  18th to 22nd October 2021.
  • Grade 8 National Examinations: 25th to 28th October 2021.
Based on the dates above we can infer that the 2021/2022 Grade 11 selection lists will be released one or two weeks after the 5th of December 2021.

DHERST has confirmed that it will launch the Grade 12 selection list on the 21st of December 2021. 

2021 Grace Period - Why it is important

The Grace period lasts only 5 days. This is the time when Grade 12 students should 'adjust' their choices. It should be straightforward because DHERST would have indicated on NOAS whether a student is eligible for selection or not depending on the examinations marks. 

Here is what DHERST say about the importance of the Grace Period, 2021:

''This [Grace Period] is a crucial period where you will start making your choices based on your final grade 12 results hence make sure to access your account during the mentioned dates. If you see the red highlight indicated in any of your five choices under “My Choices”, this means that your final result has not met the minimum program requirement set by the institution. Therefore, you must change the red highlighted choice to a different program that is available in your program list.'' DHERST

The online selection is quick. The Grade 12 students in the country have between Tuesday 14th December and Friday 17th December 2021 to adjust their choices to the more suitable ones. DHERST will NOT grant you access to making changes during the weekend or on Monday the 20th of December 2021.

Launching 2021 selection for 2022 academic year

The online selection via DHERST's National Online Selections System (NOSS) will do the magic in 3 days. 

DHERST plans to launch the 2021 selections for the 2022 academic year on Tuesday 21st December 2021.  

There were issues last year when the Department of Higher Education had to republish the selection listing. If all goes to plan this year, students are likely to see their selection status by the date announced by DHERST. We hope all goes to plan. 

How to Check Your 2021 Grade 12 Exam Marks

By now, you should know your Grade 12 exam marks. The marks are accessible through My PNG Exam Results website. 

Note that DHERST does not display the Grade 12 students' exam marks.

DHERST Online Application 2021 (NOAS)

NOAS remains the property of the National Government of Papua New Guinea and is administered by the Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST).

NOAS facilitates national admissions and selections into higher education institutions in PNG. This portal facilitates Grade 12 school-leaver application.

Non-school leaver applicants

Non-school leaver applicants must contact directly the institute of their choice and follow non-school leaver application requirements.
