Payment problems & cancellation dates
If a cheque or credit card is tendered in payment of the minimum amount which must accompany a studentís application for registration, and payment of that cheque or credit card is later returned unpaid by the bank, the studentís registration will be cancelled by the university. Such registrations will not be reinstated unless the studentís full tuition fees for the year or semester are paid in the form of cash, electronic transfer or bank guaranteed cheque into the universityís bank account, or via debit card payment at any of the Unisa regional offices before the relevant closing date.
On re-registration of the cancelled modules, the studentís account will be debited with a once-off administrative levy, per dishonoured transaction.
Overdue accounts and accounts handed over for collection
No student will be allowed to re-register with the university until all outstanding debt of previous registration periods has been settled in full. Students with long overdue balances on their accounts may be handed over to a third party for collection. Any collection/legal costs that may arise from the account being handed over will be for the account of the student. Payment or arrangements thereof of overdue accounts handed over for collection should be made with the collection company concerned.
