Unisa has a zero tolerance for any form of dishonesty or cheating activity related to exams

We wish to remind all students that Unisa has a zero tolerance for any form of examination and assignment dishonesty or cheating.

Any student who is found to have participated in any fraudulent or dishonest activity related to exams (eg possession of unauthorised notes or exam papers, external parties assisting with assessments) will be referred to the Student Disciplinary Unit for investigation and disciplinary action. If found guilty, they will have their modules cancelled and their marks withdrawn. They will also face up to a maximum of five years suspension from the university and from all universities in South Africa. Click here for the Unisa rules for students and the Student Disciplinary Code.

The university appeals to students with any information on dishonest or fraudulent activity related to Unisa exams to report it to the Fraud/Corruption Hotline on telephone number 0800 005 311.
