In this regard, Dean of Admission and Registration at the University of Bahrain (UoB), Dr. Osama Al Jowder, announced that the University has taken this decision based on statistics and registration data process during the last semesters, he added, “Since the launch of online course payment service the process has significantly contributed in minimizing congestion at the registration hall of the University of Bahrain.”

The Dean of Admission and Registration at the University of Bahrain pointed out that the UoB’s strategic plan includes several key elements such as harmonizing governance and administration to the best international practices through the enhanced use of technology as part of a comprehensive executive plan.
Dr. Al Jowder highlighted that new students should have valid student I.D and password to enable them to use such service, and called upon the new students to check with the deanship of Admission and Registration to get the required data. The online payment instructions are available on the website, and the service allows them to print the academic-year schedule after paying the fees.

Dr. Al Jowder praised the eGovernment Authority initiatives to encourage the students to use the online payment channels by the launch of a full fees refund campaign which, as a result, contributed in increasing the rate of technology use among students and easing the pressure on university facilities during the registration period.
