ii) Student Information Form (S.I.F.): After profile update students can generate and download/print their Student Information Form (SIF).

Registration fees are reflected on student's BUKPPF, to be paid using Remita e-Payments and e-Collection platform (click here for the payment procedure). Make sure you carefully read, understand and follow the payment procedure, as BUK will not be liable for any lost of funds as a result of incorrect data entry. Students must make sure that they enter ALL the information of the BUKPPF ACCURATELY. Any misinformation may lead to unnecessary delay in validating and processing of payment. Payments can now be validated by the students via clicking check payment status at the payment page. NOTE THAT ALL FEES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE AFTER PAYMENT

Note that in the event the student is not the one making the payment (payment by proxy) make sure they generated the invoice from the student's registration account . Any misinformation may lead to unnecessary delay in validating and processing of payment. Payments are usually validated and processed within 24/48 hours.

iv) Student Payment Receipt (S.P.R.): After payment is validated and processed, students must generate, download, and print Student Payment Receipt (SPR) in order to continue with the registration.

vi) Course Registration Form (C.R.F.): After course registration students must generate and download/print the Course Registration Form (CRF). The CRF contains the details of the registered courses. The CRF form is to be submitted to Department immediately for verification and confirmation.


  • If you did not see course(s) to register during Course Registration or wish to register an optional course that is not listed. Contact your HOD/level coordinator to add the course via BUKRES
  • A student cannot earn a credit in any course he/she has not duly registered for through the normal registration process, or the Add/Drop process.
