The UGRC (University of Ghana Registered Courses) was introduced into the academic schedule of the University of Ghana a few years back. The system was introduced to equip the students in the university with an all-around knowledge and skills that are related to the daily life events. The UGRC system benefits the two student groups at the University of Ghana: the UGRC registration level 200 and the UGRC registration for level 100. Both the 100 and 200 levels students can use the UGRC registration system to register new units and also resit courses.
The UG resit registration follows the same procedure as the one the students use when doing their normal University of Ghana Registered Courses registration. Generally, any student at the University of Ghana pursuing any undergraduate course is supposed to take a total of six UGRC units. The UGRC registration for level 100 has a total of 4 units, while the UGRC registration level 200 has two units, summing up to a total of six units.
The UGRC units must be taken by any student who wishes to graduate after completing their undergraduate studies at the University of Ghana. If a student misses taking even one of the UGRC units he/she will be bared by the University of Ghana academic department from graduating till the uncompleted UGRC unit is completed and passed.
Students who fail the UGRC units can redo the units by registering on the UG resit registration portal. Some of the courses that are in the UGRC course list include:
- Academic Writing
- Critical Thinking and Practical Reasoning
- Earth Resources
- Numeracy Skills
- African Studies, etc.
- UGRC course registration
All the UGRC units in the University of Ghana are registered online. The University of Ghana UGRC registration is offered under the Department of Academic Affairs Directorate. Before you begin your registration of the UGRC units, you must log in to the students portal.
Every student will use their login details, you will be required to input your student ID and your PIN to access the portal. On the same page, you will find all the necessary information related to the UGRC registration for level 100 and the UGRC registration level 200. If you access the UGRC registration 2018, you will find links directing you to the UGRC courses timetable for both the level 100 students and the level 200 students.
The timetable links give the students the options of downloading the table. Apart from that the UGRC online registration portal also has the updates related to new UGRC groups and the new units in the group. Once you are able to access your UGRC online registration students’ portal, you can go ahead and register your UGRC units. Once you are done registering and confirming the units you can log out of your portal.

Additional points to note about UGRC course registration
The University of Ghana Registered Courses has specific instructions, especially with regards to the UGRC courses that the students are expected to register. It's best for every student to consult their respective College Academic Offices to be given all the instructions with regard to the MIS web UGRC registration. The following general instructions are important for the UGRC course registration for all the level 100 and level 200 students.
Any level 200 students pursuing Political Science is barred from the University of Ghana academics from taking Africa in the Contemporary World (UGRC 222) which is one of the UGRC course available for the level 200 students. Students pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Art and taking level 200 Music, Drama and Dance, are not allowed to register for the following UGRC units:
- African Music UGRC 227
- African Drama UGRC 226
- African Dance UGRC 225
All the students in level 200 and level 100 are prohibited from registering more than one unit under the UGRC African Studies. Students who register more than one unit in this category will have their examination papers canceled.
All the students in level 100 and 200 who decide to pursue courses in Language Proficiency are expected to register their units at the Institute of African Studies. The courses that are affected by this rule are:
- Dagbani UGRC 235
- Ewe UGRC 236
- Ga UGRC 237
- Twi UGRC 238
The Numeracy Skills UGRC unit (UGRC120) is for all the undergraduate students who are in the College of Humanities and are pursuing the following undergraduate degree courses in Computer Science, Statistics, Administration, Mathematics, and Economics. Students in this category are also expected to take the Introduction to Literature (UGRC160) course.
The students who are pursuing a degree in Economics with no mathematics units are expected to take the General Mathematics (UGRC170) UGRC course. These students are also advised by the University of Ghana academics to undertake the Introduction to Literature (UGRC160) UGRC course.
It's very crucial for all students to look at the mandatory UGRC courses that they are supposed to undertake depending on their undergraduate degrees and then look at the recommended UGRC units. The mandatory course must be done if a student wants to graduate in their discipline of study. Any student, who has not registered their UGRC units on the UGRC course registration platform, will not be allowed to sit for the UGRC examinations even if they have attended the lessons for the particular UGRC unit.
All the students in the higher levels in the University of Ghana who are unable to access the online registration are required by the university to get in touch with their respective College Academic Offices and then submit their detailed academic reports for the previous years.
The University of Ghana, also advises students that sometimes the system may be slow due to a large number of students trying to access MIS web UGRC registration portal. If the problem persists, they can try and access the UGRC online registration platform some other time when the system is not crowded by users.
