How to Apply to UPNG as a Non-School Leaver

If you are a non-school leaver looking to apply for a program at UPNG, this article will guide you through the application process, including the steps to follow and the requirements you need to meet.


Step 1: Check the Admission Requirements

Step 2: Pay the Application Fee

All non-school leaver applicants are required to pay a non-refundable application fee using BSP Pay. 

The application fee is K20.00 for undergraduate programs and K50.00 for postgraduate programs, except for the School of Business and Public Policy, which has a different application processing fee.

Make sure to indicate your name and correct date of deposit on the deposit slip when paying. Keep the receipt with you for verification purposes.


Step 3: Apply Online

To apply for a program at UPNG, you must use the Online Applicant Portal. Note that before applying, ask for the Applicant Portal User Manual and BSP Pay Activation Guide for guidance, and read them carefully before applying. Here are last year's documents to give you some ideas:

Also, look out for the 2025 Non-School Leavers Application Notice. This notice provides instructions on how to apply to UPNG, including the application fees and how to apply using the "UPNG Applicant Online Portal".

After submitting your application, successful candidates will be notified by mid-December 2024 or early January 2025 via email and post, together with the successful school leavers of 2025.

If your name is not on the final list, it means that your application for admission in 2025 has been unsuccessful.

3) if you are in Port Moresby, drop off a copy of your application at UPNG's student admin.

  • Non-School leavers - Prospecting students who completed Grade 12 in the last 5 years, including FODE and DODL students and international students.

Due to limited space and resources, the University can only admit a limited number of new students into various programmes of study. As a result, competition is very high and priority is given to those with higher GPAs. 

Those seeking enrolment must satisfy the UPNG admission requirement.

The Non-School Leavers are selected based on their application in response to the University’s advertisement every year. The university does the selection and informs the students by publishing the 2023 non-school leavers acceptance list on each university's website.
