What's best about DHERST Grace Period 2022

The Department of Higher Education, Research, Science and Technology (DHERST) released the dates for the Grace Period and 2022/2023 Selection Lists.

In hindsight, DHERST pegged the Grace Period to Monday the 12th of December 2022. It ends on Thursday the 15th of December 2022. 

The date for Grace Period means that the Education Department (Measurement Services Division) must release the Grade 12 results before the 12th of December 2022. 

DHERST will not be happy if NDoE delays the Grade 12 results beyond the date they set for the Grade Period.

DHERST Selection Lists 2022 Release Date

The higher education department scheduled the release of DHERST selection lists 2023 to Wednesday the 21st of December 2022.

Grade 12 students have 4 days to adjust their school leavers' (SLF) choices to higher institutions. And, wait 10 days before the PNG Universities and Non-universities Acceptance Lists 2023 come out.

2023 DHERST Acceptance List for PNG Universities and Colleges Information

Our readers have asked about the 2023 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 2023. 

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 2023 Acceptance Lists for all the Tertiary Institutions will FIRST appear on the university's website or in the newspapers before they are shared through 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. 

2022/2023 UPNG Acceptance List PDF - Online MBA Degree

Non-school Leavers Acceptance List

The 2023 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 2023 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 Non-school Leavers Acceptance List is out.

2023 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 2022/2023 Christmas holiday. It is your responsibility to find out your GPA and possible TESAS Status for the academic year 2023.

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 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.

2023 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 is DHERST 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 until ALL the names (quotas from each university and college) have 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 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 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) 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 2023 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 sends 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 2023 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 2023 starts to see if you have been offered a placement at a university or college in PNG.

The 2021/2022 selection had 
  • 31, 817 students were 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?

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.

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.

2022 Grade 12 Students SLF Grace Period - Why GP is Important

 2022 DHERST GRACE PERIOD: Present Grade 12 students are in a privileged position to make the right choices for their Grade 12 School Leavers. They can adjust their choices based on their exam marks, unlike in the past.

DHERST Online Application 2022 (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, Grade 12 students did not have the chance to change their choices after they've filled out 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 2023 at a tertiary institution in the country.

Important Dates and Expectations

Here are some important dates for examinations, results and selections in Papua New Guinea based on past year's dates

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

(The latest dates for exam results and selections are now available here.)

  • Tuesday 21st December 2021: DHERST launches 2021 selection for the 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)
These were the dates for 2021/2022. The 2023 dates are either likely to fall around the same time or differ by a few days.

2022 PNG Schools Exam Dates

  • Grade 10 National Examinations: 10th to 14th October 2022.
  • Grade 12 National Examinations:  17th to 21st October 2022.
  • Grade 8 National Examinations: 24th to the 27th of October 2022
Based on the dates above we can infer that the 2022/2023 Grade 11 selection lists will be released on the first or second week of December 2023.

2022 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 examination marks. 

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

''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 around 4/5 days to adjust their choices to the more suitable ones. 

DHERST will NOT grant you access to making changes during the weekend or the next Monday of the following week to make any changes.

This Grade period's due date is final.

Launching 2022 selections for 2023 academic year

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

DHERST may launch the 2022 selections for the 2023 academic year the week following the Grade Period's due date. possibly on Tuesday of that week.  

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 2022 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 HELP Application Form 2022 Info

Higher Education Loan Program (HELP), the government of Papua New Guinea’s new initiative aimed at enhancing access to quality tertiary education. 

HELP addresses the increasing number of students unable to access post-secondary education due to a lack of financial resources. HELP provides for all eligible higher education students an income-contingent loan with zero-based interest. 

Loan repayments commence once the students graduate and on commencement of paid employment.

Here is a post about DHERST Selections that provides information for Schools Leavers and Non-School Leavers.

DHERST HELP Application Form 2021 Info


NEC Decision on HELP And First Batch of Students Loans.

HELP loans were first issued to eligible students on 15th May 2020, following earlier landmark policy initiatives of the Marape Government formalized in NEC Decision 179/2019.

In the short time available and given the scope and complexity of the scheme it has been a remarkable achievement in simply establishing the regulatory arrangements for the HELP  program.

DHERST acknowledges the excellent whole-of-government coordination and support received from other agencies in bringing the HELP program on stream so promptly and so efficiently. 

 The cross-agency support from our colleagues in Finance, Treasury, State Solicitor, First Legislative Counsel, Personnel Management and IRC; and of course the many DHERST staff working closely with the management and staff of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and potential applicants to successfully implement the program.

2022 HELP Application Eligibility

In the second year of rollout, the Higher Education Loan Program (HELP) will be available to both undergraduate and postgraduate students.

To be eligible for this loan from the government, the student must:

  • Be a citizen of Papua New Guinea
  • Enrolled in an institution registered under DHERST
  • Must study a program accredited by the National Higher and Technical Education Board (NHTEB)

The NHTEB is the accrediting body operating under the DHERST. All students applying for the HELP must meet the above requirements in order to proceed to the next step, which is completing the declaration form.

Digitalization of higher education - HELP online

Enhancing the digitalization of education in the higher education sector, the HELP application is done online. 

Once the students are enrolled and declared interest to apply for HELP, further assistance can be sought from the Registrars or Student Finance Offices at their respective higher education institutions. 

Students are also advised to check for updates on the Higher Education Loan Program HELP page.

HELP Application Timeline

January –April: Declaration of forms issued by HEIs to interested tertiary students; Students sign declaration forms; Declaration forms collected.

2: May: HELP online App launched; SDO Accounts created; SDOs conform student details

3 June: Students receive credentials; Students apply for HELP; First Semester instalments paid out.

Here is a post about DHERST Selections that provides information for Schools Leavers and Non-School Leavers.

So, here is how you (Grade 12 students) can make full use of the Grade period and maximise your chances of securing a space for 2023.

2022 Grace Period - Why it is important

The Grade period lasts only 5 days. This is the time when you 'adjust' your choices. This is the easy part because DHERST should indicate to you on NOAS whether you are eligible for selection or not depending on your examination marks. 

Here is what DHERST say about why the Grade Period is important:

Therefore, you must change the red highlighted choice to a different program that is available in your program list.'' DHERST

Last year (2021), the Grade 12 students in the country had between Tuesday 14th December and Friday 17th December to adjust their choices to the more suitable ones. DHERST did NOT grant access after the due date for making any further changes.

Launching of DHERST 2023 selection lists for universities and non-universities often come out on Tuesday of the following week. Check this space for any latest on the Grade 12 Grade Period and the launching of 2023 selection lists.

Last year (2021), DHERST planned to launch the 2021 selections for the 2022 academic year on Tuesday 21 December 2021. But, there were administrative issues that prompted the Department of Higher Education to republish the selection listing.

If all goes to plan, students are likely to see their selection status by the date announced by DHERST.

"We currently have a situation where someone irresponsible is circulating false information that the Department is recommending closure of the academic year," Czuba said.

“This information is ethically and legally wrong and we regret that some people are trying to destabilize the peace and harmony during this state of emergency.”

Czuba says he has written letters to Prime Minister James Marape and Emergency Controller David Manning and he’s met with both and made the department’s position clear for all higher education institutions to resume classes and complete the academic year.

He says they are expecting a favourable decision from the Emergency Controller.

He says DHERST communicates to all higher education institutions regularly on any decisions via e-letters and it does not use social media during the state of emergency to communicate with the institutions.

He says any official statement will be announced by himself as per orders received from the Emergency Controller and the National Executive Council.

Czuba says DHERST is maintaining a reputable partnership with all higher education institutions to ensure that students, academic and non-academic staffs are safe and can work in a stable environment to achieve their highest potential by completing their studies.

“Students who are doing university level will apply for K10 000 per year.
 “Students who do Masters Degree or other Post-Graduate studies like Bachelors or Honors will apply for K15000 per year.
Students who are doing PhD or Doctorate can apply for K20 000 per year,” the Secretary outlined.

Fr Jan said, for a start, the students will receive less but as the year goes by the loan amount might increase.
“Currently we have the Students Higher Education Loan Program Handbook for students’ ready.“We have the Lease Agreement between students and Government is ready.“Now we are developing this electronic application and it should be ready soon, so students don’t have to go to the bank or come to us to get the application form.“They will go to the Website, they will download the form, fill them online and send them back to us, so the process will be very fast, said Fr Jan Czuba.
The Secretary said this will save time and cost for parents and students as everything will be done electronically.

In the meantime, Fr Jan Czuba said, those students on TESAS will continue but for self-sponsored students will have to meet their own registration fees for the first semester only.
