a) Online Early Booking: The Admission and Registration Department (ARD) provides online early booking service for students who will register in Fall/Spring semesters in order to help them avoid last minute problems arising out of closure of sections and by planning their courses in advance. This service can be availed by regular students only. No fees need to be paid for this online early booking of courses. The fees can be paid during the regular registration week for Fall/Spring.

b) Advising/Selection of Courses:  Upon careful consideration and due consultation with his or her   assigned academic advisor, the student shall establish a definitive plan of courses in which to enroll for a respective semester.  Both the academic advisor and the concerned student shall sign the completed, official registration form detailing the plan of courses. Students may also register online at http://sis.uob.edu.om.

c) Remittance of Payment for Fees:  The student shall submit the signed, completed registration form to the University Cashier’s Office and remit payment of all accumulated fees, at which time he/she shall receive confirmation of registered courses.   The student’s class schedule shall be subsequently forwarded to the student via SIS.
