Last Updated on January 20, 2023

UP Status Check

Have you applied to study at the University of Pretoria (UP) and would like to complete the UP Status Check to find out the status of your application for your degree programme? In this article, we will show you how you can check your University of Pretoria application status, as well as what possible University of Pretoria status results could mean.

Possible UP Admission Status Results

The University of Pretoria admission status page displays a number of different statuses associated with applicant applications and the process by which they are evaluated. Let’s look at what the admittance status signifies in more detail

  • Pending Review: Suggests that the University of Pretoria has received the application. Before establishing what documents, if any, are required to complete the application, it is necessary to evaluate it. Applicants should check back for developments; until an admission decision is announced, the application status will remain Pending Review.
  • Requires Action: Indicates that parts of the application are lacking. Applicants should revisit their UP online application tool for updates on Unresolved Items.
  • Admitted: Indicates acceptance into the selected program. Some admissions offers may come with caveats.
  • Provisional Admission: Under this term, students are admitted to a program that has a faculty-specific requirement. This program requires you to submit all outstanding To-Do List items as well as complete any other requirements set forth by your instrUPor.
  • Cleared Provisional Admission: Indicates that all of the admission’s faculty-specific requirements have been met. Admission to the chosen program has now been confirmed in its entirety.
  • Ineligible: This status indicates that admission to the specified program has been denied. The bare minimums for admission consideration have not been reached.
  • Quota Filled: Admission to the program indicated has been rejected because the quota has been filled. Despite meeting the program’s basic admission requirements, the application was not successful.
  • Canceled: Withdrawn applications are indicated by this status.

Here’s How To Check Your UP Application Status

Applicants are advised to check their admission and application status through the link below

If you have been admitted conditionally or unconditionally, please visit the MyTUKS Login(UP Portal)‘Student Centre’ to accept or decline the place that has been allocated to you.

If you want to enquire about the following, please email ssc@up.ac.za or call 012 420 3111:

  • You did not receive a confirmation letter.
  • Your status indicates “awaiting results” despite the fact that you have already submitted your results as requested on your application form.
  • You want to change your study programme.


  • Always state your name, surname, student number, ID number and contact number in your email and give an outline of your enquiry.
  • Check the correctness of your personal information as well as the status of your application on the MyTUKS Login (UP Portal) regularly.


In order for persons who are Study Applicants, Students, Staff, Alumni or authorised Guests to access UP systems, they will (at some stage) need to first complete the process described below to activate their UP Portal and create their UP Portal password.

The first 9 or so steps are common for all roles, but steps 10 through 13 are specifically for new Study Applicants – so that they are guided into their “Student Centre”.

  • Step 1: Go to UP’s website at www.up.ac.za
  • Step 2: Click on the link titled “My UP Login”. You will be taken to the UP Login page.
  • Step 3: (As a first-time user of the UP Portal) Click on the button labelled “New user” which will take you to this function
  • Step 4: Enter your Username which would have been communicated to you and SA National ID (or passport) (The data shown here included asterisks to mask the SA National ID used)
  • Step 5: You are then presented with the criteria that your proposed password must meet. Capture your proposed password (twice) … and click “Proceed”.
  • Step 6: Once your Password has been created, you will be requested to set up the answers to at least three “Challenge Questions” that you select. Decide which 3 (or more) questions you want to select against which you will store your responses.
    • By providing answers to these Challenge Questions it facilitates a self-service mechanism for you to reset your password at a later date should you have forgotten your password – thereby avoiding you having to call our ITHelpDesk (if a Staff member or Guest) or the UP Student Help Desk (if Applicant or Student)
  • Step 7: Enter your responses to the selected “Challenge questions” and click “Save”
  • Step 8: You should receive confirmation once your set up of challenge questions has been completed. Click “OK”.
  • Step 9: You should then be returned to the LOGIN page used earlier (or you could navigate from www.up.ac.za to “My UP Login”).
    Enter your Username plus the Password that you have just created ……. And click “Submit”.
    You should then be directed to whatever Portal is appropriate to your Role at UP, e.g. either
    • Study Applicant
    • Student
    • Staff Member
    • Alumnus
    • Guest

If you have multiple Roles, you can toggle between the relevant Portals using the “MY VIEW” drop down. The steps that follow are specific for UP Study Applicants logging onto the UP Portal for the first time ….

  • Step 10: If as a Study Applicant, you have completed Steps 1 through 9 above and have entered your Username and Password, then you should have landed on what is labelled as the “UP STUDY APPLICANT PORTAL”
  • If you are also an UP staff member or also a student/alumnus, you may have landed on a different Portal, but if you click on the “MY VIEW” dropdown you can swop to the APPLICANT portal On the “Study Applicant” Portal, you should see a number of smaller “portlets” (e.g. Credit Card payments; Password Self Service, etc.) that will each give access to specific functions. Note that one of the portlets is titled “Student Centre” – and within that portlet are various hyperlinks, one of which is also labelled as “Student Centre”.
  • Step 11: Click on either on the hyperlink labelled as “Student Centre”, or on the green “GO” button. This should open a screen with a collection of “tiles” – that all relate to a workspace collection titled “UP Student Self-Service”.
  • Step 12: Note the tile labelled “UP Student Centre” …
  • Step 13: Clicking on this “UP Student Centre” tile, will take you to a collection of hyperlinks …. Not all of these links will (initially) function for Study Applicants, but take note that:
  • The “Admission Status” link will allow you to track the status of your Study Application
  • The “Upload Support Documents” link will allow any document you ever wish to upload, or are requested to upload, to be processed
  • The “Communications” link shows all system-generated communications previously sent to you


  • To return to the previous collection of tiles click the “Home” icon (top right)
  • To log out, you can simply click on the “X” of the browser tab in which this information is
    being shown to close that Tab

Tracking application status is that easy. With a few clicks, you’re done. I hope this information was helpful.

Congratulations to all the successful applicants that made it to the University of Pretoria.
