The rules regarding registration are set out in detail in the Admission Policy and are available on the Unisa website. Specifically, the following rules are highlighted:

Apply Online :

The registration form :
1 A student must complete a registration form for each academic year, in terms of which he or she binds himself or herself to all the rules of the university.
2 The content of the registration form is the basis of the student’s contract with the university.

3 It is the student’s responsibility to inform the university in writing, using the prescribed Unisa forms or online via myUnisa, of any change(s) to personal data contained on the registration form, notably, name change, address change, change in telephone numbers and / or change in examination venue.

4 It is the responsibility of the student to submit his or her modules for registration through the prescribed registration modes before the closing date.

The minimum prescribed fee for all modules submitted for registration must be submitted by the closing date for registration. No late registrations are accepted for any reason.

Note: In respect of master’s and doctoral qualifications, registration is only available online.

Choice of modules

1 A student’s registration per semester and per annum is subject to the maximum number of NQF (National Qualifications Framework) credits as set out in the Admission Policy.

2 Modules registered for non-degree purposes will also be taken into account when calculating the maximum NQF credits for a semester / year of study.

3 Students in the final semester of study for a qualification weighted at 240 credits or more may apply to register for an additional 24 credits if this will enable the student to complete the registered qualification.

Applications to take additional modules must be made to the Deputy Registrar using the Unisa prescribed form. In order to be eligible for the application of this rule, the affected student must have a minimum overall average of 55% in all modules previously passed.

4 Where the final year of a qualification comprises only year modules (as opposed to semester modules), the above rule will apply; application for the additional 24 credits must, however, be made at the beginning of the final year of study.

5 A student may register for two modules for a postgraduate qualification for NDP concurrently with one outstanding minor or major module for the degree. The outstanding module should not form part of the major subject required for admission to the postgraduate qualification with the exception of CTA.

NDP modules for a postgraduate qualification will be cancelled in June of the academic year if a student failed to pass the outstanding module for the undergraduate qualification. Such a student will forfeit the initial amount paid at the time of registration.
