Neptun Electric Study System of the University of Nyíregyháza:
A Short Guide to NEPTUN for Foreign Students
The NEPTUN is a national electronic administration system in Hungary for students enrolled to a university. This is a huge electronic database, which contains the personal data and full academic study records of all students (registration, courses, exams, grades and credits), and it is also used for managing financial transactions for items which students are expected to pay to the university.
With Neptun students can
- modify their personal data;
- access information about courses, study requirements, exam dates and locations;
- sign up for their courses;
- sign up for their exams;
- check their grades;
- send and receive messages to and from lecturers and administrators;
- pay their tuition and other fees;
- send feedback about lecture(r)s.
Each student admitted to our university will receive his/her Neptun code and password from your Erasmus coordinator.
Students can only access their own data. For security considerations, IT IS VITAL THAT EVERYBODY KEEP THEIR PASSWORD SECRET.
If you have a problem related to the usage of Neptun, contact your Erasmus student buddy or your Erasmus coordinator.
How to Use Neptun
Switch to ENGLISH if necessary.
After “Login name:” carefully enter your Neptun code.
After “Password:” write your date of birth in the Hungarian way (yyyymmdd) with no dots or space (like: 19891231).
After your first login change your password according to the steps described below.
How to change your password
On the first entry, the password has to be changed in a pop-up window which serves the user’s interest. Only after this, you are able to use the interface.
After your first login and then randomly but regularly change your password. Enter your old password first then type your new password twice and finally click on Change password.
It is advisable to use a password consisting of a specific combination of alphanumeric characters, which cannot be easily guessed by other people. Passwords can contain small and capital Hungarian alphabetic characters, as well as numerals.
The Neptun code is your administrative university ID. You cannot change and you need to use it for all administration which you might face. Make sure you remember it.
Over the header, on the top right corner, the name and the Neptun code of the signed student and also the “Logout” button (to exit safely from the program) can be seen. Between the Neptun code and the logout, a countdown time display shows that when will the program log the user out automatically, if there is no operation.
