Assignment and examination administration

Deadlines

  • It remains your responsibility to ensure that your assignment reaches Unisa on or before the closing date.
  • It is ESSENTIAL that you submit an assignment in time to meet the deadline (submission / closing) date. If you fail to do this, the assignment will not be marked and you will therefore receive NO ADMISSION CREDITS for the assignment.
  • If you are UNABLE to hand in a COMPULSORY assignment on time, you must apply IN ADVANCE to the academic department in question (eg the Department of Criminology) for an extension of time. Such an extension will be granted only in EXCEPTIONAL cases.
  • NO assignments handed in after the closing date will be marked, unless special permission has been obtained IN ADVANCE from the head of the relevant academic department.
  • Although assignments may be submitted before the deadline (submission / closing) date, it is not always possible to mark them before the submission date. Assignments submitted early (eg by students who enrolled in November) will not be marked until February.
