Every year, thousands of parents apply for their child to enter their schooling career. The Western Cape Education Department (WCED) has an online platform specifically for WCED school admission applications.

Submitting an admissions application will unfortunately not be possible if you have forgotten your login credentials. Here's how to reset your password if you've forgotten it.

How To Reset Your WCED School Admissions Password

Step 4: Type in the One Time Pin (OTP) that is sent via SMS to your phone

Step 5: Click on VERIFY

Step 6: Create a new password and complete the Security information

Step 7: Click on Register

After completing all these steps, your password should be reset. You can now use this password to log in to the WCED Online Admissions website. 

Required documents

  • The last official school report card
  • Proof of learner's identity (ID, birth certificate, passport)
  • Proof of residence (rates account, lease agreement, affidavit)
  • Immunisation card (Grade 1 applicants only)
  • Additional documents for foreign learners

One of the major criticisms of online admissions systems is that they are exclusionary for people who don’t have access to the internet. 

The WCED has established 120 pop-up admission sites in shopping malls, schools, and other locations in all education districts. These sites offer support and assistance with the online application process.
