EGov Authority launches new UoB eService
Manama, December 27, 2012
Bahrain’s eGovernment Authority (eGA) in cooperation with the admission and registration office of the University of Bahrain (UoB) has launched a new eService ‘University of Bahrain Course Payment’ on its online portal.
This is as part of its commitment to make services easier for all segments of the society and use the services of the national portal - in particular the youth, a statement from the Authority said.
For the second time, 20 students have won refund of full course fees that are paid via this service as a special promotion for students registering courses for the academic year 2012-2013, the statement said.
“The payment of students’ tuition fees on the online portal (bahrain.bh) was undoubtedly in high-demand since the launch of the campaign, and that the tuition fees paid electronically during this semester were up to BD150,704 ($399,586.56) for 1,229 payment transactions,” said UOB admission and registration dean Dr Usama Abdulla Al-Jawder.
"The service was provided within the framework of enhanced cooperation with the eGovernment Authority, and as part of UOB's plan to offer its services for students online through utilising state-of-the-art techniques in a bid to facilitate procedures for students. Paying tuition fees online has minimised congestion at the registration room as they have the option to register, add or remove courses without having to be present at the university premises.”
“They are only required to provide an active student ID and password, if they are willing to use the service," added Dr Al-Jawder.
The initiative follows last semester's pattern where 15 students won a full refund of fees paid via the 'University of Bahrain Course Payment’ eService, and the total tuition fees paid were in the amount of BD114, 720 - in the range of 925 electronic transactions. – TradeArabia News Service
