Who must register?

  • Applicants may only register once they have received confirmation from Unisa that their application for admission has been accepted.
  • Re-registering students (who made sufficient progress during the current academic year) and students who officially deferred their studies must register online within the approved registration period for 2021. Re-registering students who have not made satisfactory progress may be precluded from registering.

Should you wish to start a new qualification, please apply online for the qualification within the prescribed application period.
