Admission PIN

On the application form, you will be asked to enter an 8-character alpha-numeric PIN. Please create a PIN of your own choice and keep it confidential. Please note that the PIN is case sensitive. Your PIN is important and can be used, together with your application number, to access the following online facilities related to your application:

  • Online updates or amendments of contact information
  • Online status enquiry   
  • Online reply to NUS' offer of admission  
  • Online Submission of Supporting Documents
  • Online appeal
  • Online Payment of Application Fee

If you have forgotten/misplaced your Admission PIN after submitting your online application, you can retrieve your Admission PIN via our Online Application Status Facility. Please note that retrieval of the Admission PIN via the Online Application Status Facility is only applicable to those who have submitted an online application to NUS.

Alternatively, you can send us an email with the required information so that we could verify and revert to you. Please click here to send us an email with your name, application number (if applicable), date of birth, residential address, name of high school attended, first choice as stated in application (if applicable) and next of kin's name. Upon receiving the request, we will send you the Admission PIN via post within five working days. Please note that mails to destinations outside Singapore will take longer time to reach you.

For urgent PIN requests, please bring along your Identification Card or passport to seek a replacement of your PIN from the Office of Admissions:

Office of Admissions
National University of Singapore
University Town
2 College Avenue West, #01-03 (Stephen Riady Centre)
Singapore 138607

You may also send a representative, with a letter of authorisation and your Identification Card or passport to collect a new PIN on your behalf. The letter of authorisation should bear your signature, Identification Card number or passport number and the representative's Identification Card number or passport number.

We regret that we are unable to reveal PIN over the phone and/or via email.


Online status enquiry


After submission of your application, please make regular use of this facility to check your application, document and payment status. If you have posted your supporting documents and bank draft, please allow 2-3 weeks for postal delivery before checking for a status update. In addition, it is possible for your documents and payment status to be updated separately, that is, we may update the status of your documents first and that of your payment after it has been processed. In this instance, you should check for an update to your payment status at a later date.

Correspondence with the Office of Admissions


The Office of Admissions will correspond with you primarily using email and the online status enquiry during the application process to convey messages such as document requests, interview notification, etc. Please provide a correct and functional email address and maintain your email account regularly. The Office of Admissions will not be responsible for undeliverable emails and their consequences.


Application outcome


Applicants can log in to the Online Application Status Facility (OASF) with your 8-digit Application Number and Admission PIN to track your application status and for regular updates. Outcome of applications for most applicants (except India and IB) will be released periodically, up to end June. If successful, you will receive an email notification on how to complete your Student's Pass application, application forms for campus accommodation, and various loan schemes.


Rejection of application

Inaccurate or false information or omission of material information will render your application invalid. The Office of Admissions reserves the right to reject applications that are incomplete or inaccurate. Persons admitted on the basis of inaccurate or false information may be expelled.
