All late applications MUST BE completed and submitted via the JUPAS online application system.

All late accepted applications will be subject to a late charge of HK$350 in addition to the application fee of HK$460.

It is applicants' responsibilities to check for such messages.  If they believe they should have received such messages but it does not appear they have, they should enquire at the JUPAS Office immediately.

The Applicants' User Guide on submission of application will be available at the JUPAS website in early October 2020.

School and Non-school Applicants

Applicants who are current secondary school students MUST apply via JUPAS as school applicants regardless of whether they may be sitting for the 2021 HKDSE Examination as private candidates.

Applicants who are not current secondary school students MUST apply via JUPAS as non-school applicants.

ALL applicants (school and non-school applicants) applying via JUPAS on the strength of their HKDSE Examination results are considered on the same basis by the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions.

As email is one of the channels that the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will use to communicate with applicants, applicants must ensure that the setting of their personal email accounts will not filter out or place such correspondence in the trash / junk bins.

^ Emails and SMS are delivered via third party network providers and therefore the JUPAS Office is not responsible for any delay, loss, transfer, amendment or damage arising from the transmission process via third party network providers.

Should there be any discrepancies between information contained in emails and SMS and applicants' JUPAS accounts, the information contained in the latter (i.e. the JUPAS accounts) is final.

Applicants are strongly advised to log on their JUPAS accounts to double-check the related information.

Since important messages and correspondence from the JUPAS Office, the 9 JUPAS participating-institutions and the SSSDP institutions will be sent via applicants' mobile phone numbers and / or mailing addresses, applicants SHOULD NEVER share their mobile phone numbers or mailing addresses with other applicants in order to protect any information related to their JUPAS applications.
