2.  The exams registration fees have been set up automatically while you were registering your courses, so add it up like you did with course registration and click on “Submit” and your portal will be debited.


Also print out your registered exams slip just like you did for course registration.




Semester registration is compulsory every new semester. You have to register for the semester first, before you can able to register any other thing  in your NOUN portal each semester.


If you register your courses without registering their exams, there won’t be an assignment (TMA) for you and you won’t be allowed to sit for the exams. So it’s a waste of money. Make sure to register the exams of those courses you registered.


Finally, it’s not all the courses that requires exam registration (this is for returning students in 300 level and 400 level). Project, seminar etc does not require exam registration, just the course registration is needed. Kindly refer to this article to see the full list of non-examinable courses in NOUN.


If you made a mistake or wish to drop any course you registered earlier, all you have to do is to visit your study centre’s ICT department and ask the staff to drop the course and your money will be refunded back to your portal.


We hope you found this article helpful in registering your NOUN courses and exams.
