Tips for newcomers

1. Please, don’t be that lazy in looking through the website – this is the right and usually only place where you can find info about registration dates etc.

2. Let me assure you that the USOS system is really simple – you just need about twenty minutes and a pinch of goodwill to get familiar with it. It’s not more difficult than Amazon or FB in fact.

3. A general remark on registration – there are two modes of registration:

(links to both registrations are on this website; login and password are the same).

4. In case of log-in failure, call me (via email or drop in at office hours) – I will give you a new password.

5. In case of any other technical problem with the registration for some philosophical courses through the USOS-web (e.g. no permission to register, a course missing on the list etc.), call our USOS coordinator – and tell him precisely what is the problem (e.g. for exactly which course you cannot register).

You can also call me, but if something is urgent that’s not the best idea, since the only thing I can do, is to forward the problem to him anyways.

6. If you are announcing a problem with the USOS, please be specific – “doesn’t work” is not enough for us to find the solution.

7. In case of inability to register through the token-registration, please call the relevant department (contact info is on the token-registration site, to which there is a link on this website).

8. Please do NOT register for any philosophical course through the token registration.

The tokens you have on your account are for OGUNs, PE and foreign language courses exclusively. Some philosophical subjects are on the list of OGUNs indeed. However, they are dedicated only for people from outside our Institute. So the only proper way to register for a philosophical subject is the USOS-web registration. If you will register for a philosophical course through the token registration you will waste your tokens for OGUNs, and thus you won’t be able to register for the OGUNs. Moreover you thus block places in the groups for people from outside Philosophy.

10. To avoid any confusion: if you read somewhere or hear from somebody that you have to go to the “dziekanat” to deal with the issue you have, let you know that for you the “dziekanat” = secretariat, room 309.
