All new and continuing students must register online each academic year. 

Continuing students need to register in September.  This applies to all students who started in Trimester A, Trimester B and Trimester C of the previous session.

The registration team will send you registration intructions to notify you of when registration is open for your course.  To register, you need to log into the student portal below using your username and password you have been provided with.  To make sure your email does not go into your junk folder, add to your known senders.

Registration deadlines - Trimester C

Trimester C registration is now underway.  If you have not yet received your registration instructions please send us an email to let us know.

The deadline for completing registration is two weeks after the course start date, so for those starting on the 20th May 2019 you need to complete your registration by the 3rd June 2019.  If you start on a different date and you are unsure of your deadline, check with your academic school to confirm.

If you are going to be late please ensure that you notify your academic school of this and read the important induction information here.  International students will also need to notify the VISA team

New students - 2019/20 Trimester A

All new students joining GCU in September this year will receive a registration email with a user name and password to use to log into the system and complete registration.   The emails will start being sent out from the end of July 2019.  This is a staged process, so depending on your course you may receive these a bit later.  If you have not received your registration email two weeks before your course start date send us an email, including your student ID and course title so we can forward these to you.  Ensure that you add to your address book so that your email does not go into your junk/spam email folder.

You must upload or send us a photograph for your student card to be produced.  You will then collect your card in September during on campus registration which completes the registration process.  Full details of on campus registration will be included in your registration instructions and posted on our webpage.  

Part time students - we will post your student card out to the registered address we hold on your record.

Continuing students - 2019/20

You will receive a registration instruction email towards the end of June asking you to register for 2019/20.  This is a staged process, and dependant on when your course is ready for registration, so you may receive this a bit later.  Your log in details will be the same as those you use to access the university computer systems.  If you try to log in and the student portal does not accept your username/password, you can try resetting your password.  

If you are awaiting exam results or have resits over the summer, you can still register now.  Once your results are published your registration will be confirmed automatically on our systems, or amended if you are not eligible to progress.
