All registrations must be saved on the IS-Academia system, plateform for the official registration. The deadlines of the academic calendar must be respected. No late registration is accepted without good reasons.

First attempt
Obligation to register at the start of the semester, for each course that students wish to follow, within the deadlines given by the academic calendar.
When the course is registered, the exam is automatically registered for the session which immediately follows the end of the course. Only the first registration for the exam is automatic.

Second and third attempts
For the second and subsequent registrations, students must register by themselves, either for the evaluation of the retake session, or for the evaluation corresponding to the semester during which the course is given again. All subsequent exams must be registered by the student, within the deadlines given by the academic calendar for exam registrations.

Exam failure or justified absence to an exam
Students who fail an exam of a course taken in the previous year are only registering for the same exam again (for the semester of the first registration). It is possible to follow the new course, without registering for it and informing the teacher that the exam will be taken on the materials of the previous year.

Extra-muros courses
No automatic registration for the exam for extra-muros courses. Students must register by themselves for exams taken outside of the faculty, respecting the information and deadlines given by the faculty where the course is followed.

Backup copies
When you are done with your course registrations for a semester, you must click on the button to save your registrations, for each semester on which you registered for courses.

Control and evidence
Print your registration(s) every semester to keep a written track. The PDF button creates a PDF file, per semester, summarizing the registrations. Only  the electronix version of this PDF file is admitted as evidence. The secretariat of the faculty does not confirm any registrations.

  • IS-Academia: it is a platform which enables you to manage your studies by yourself (register for courses and exams, monitor your grades, print your certificates)
  • Course descriptives: you will find in the course descriptives any information about the courses (objectives, contents, requirements, evaluations...)
  • Exam schedules: You can consult the exam schedules and rooms on Pidex.
  • Webmail: it is your university mailbox. Every student of the UniNE has an email address «firstname.lastname@unine.ch» that he or she is required to consult on a regular basis. It is the mailbox in which you will receive the information from the administration or the professors throughout the year.

Assessment procedures
The official assessment procedures are those that are included in the curriculum of the programme concerned. The course descriptive specifies the weighting of every assessment in the final grade.

E 2h written exam during the end-of-semester exam session
EI 2h mid-term written exam

Remedial procedures after a failure: 2h written exam during the end-of-semester exam session
Remedial procedures following an absence : E or EI.

Academic transcripts
All grades are accessible on the Internet. They are available when you log on IS-Academia. Students can ask the secretariat of the Faculty by mail (e-mail or letter) to be informed of their grades in writing within a week following the publication of the grades on the Internet. In case a written communication is asked for, the deadline for appeal will begin with this notification. Definitive failures are automatically communicated by registered letter.

Course attendance certificate
If you give up your studies, the SIM can deliver a course attedance certificate containing your transcript of grades and credits.

Procedure applying in the event of an appeal
The transcript is deemed to be the decision, within the meaning of Article 3 of the Loi sur la procédure et la juridiction administrative du 27 juin 1979, for the examined subjects in the last session and, if necessary, for the other results of the past semester. An appeal can be lodged within thirty days of the reception of the academic transcript with the Rectorat de l'Université, Fbg de l'Hôpital 41, 2000 Neuchâtel. The appeal must state the contested decision, the grounds, the conclusions and the possible evidence.
