Registration FAQs

Useful links:

Pre-registration


I want to register, but didn’t apply during the application period. What should I do?

You will need to apply for admission during the next application period. Please visit www.unisa.ac.za/apply for more information.


Can I register with Unisa and another university simultaneously?

Only if your Unisa registration is for non-degree purposes and if you have written permission from the other university allowing concurrent registration. You must submit this written permission at the time of application and registration.


Can I register for two or more formal programmes at Unisa simultaneously?

Unfortunately, not.


How do I get an academic record or credit certificate?

Submit your request via myUnisa and it will be e-mailed to your myLife e-mail account. This PDF document is password protected. You will only be able to access with your identity number / passport number (the ID number or the password number on record at Unisa).


Why does my qualification have a new NQF level?

In 2008, the National Qualifications Framework (NQF) Act No 67 replaced the South African Qualifications Authority Act No 58 of 1995.

In line with the NQF Act, there are now 10 levels on the NQF, which means that all qualifications changed from the 8-level framework to the 10-level framework, for example: A 3-year bachelor degree was previously placed on an NQF level 6. The new NQF level is a 7. Click here for more information.

Please note: Qualifications with the old NQF levels will continue to receive the same recognition as qualifications awarded in terms of the new NQF levels and the Higher Education Qualification Sub-Framework alignment.


When can I register for a module if I was registered before and did not write the exam for the module?

After the official release of the exam results for that exam period, but before the appropriate closing date for registrations.


What is workplace-based learning?

Specific modules in certain qualifications offered at Unisa include workplace-based learning that must be completed. Please check if the qualification you have chosen has any work-integrated learning (WIL) modules. This experience is called work-integrated learning or experiential learning, and must be completed under the supervision of a suitably qualified and experienced person (mentor). This experience is mandatory for passing that module and achieving your qualification. Please check, before registering for such a module, that you will be able to complete this work-integrated learning component.

Students who do not have placement at an employer can contact the relevant academic department for assistance in finding a suitable experiential learning provider to gain this experience.


I applied for exemptions previously and have not been notified whether or not I was successful. Where can I check the status of my application?

Please make sure that you have followed the application procedure for credit exemptions. Visit www.unisa.ac.za/credits for the application process for exemptions. Once you have confirmed that you followed the correct procedure, please send an e-mail to [email protected]


I did not register with Unisa for the past few years. Can I still complete my degree?

You will need to confirm whether or not Unisa still offers your qualification. Visit www.unisa.ac.za/register to check this information. If you need to apply for a new qualification, please take note of Unisa’s application process and academic progression rules. If you are academically excluded, you must comply with the requirements for re-admission (ie completion of a one-year certificate programme of 48 credits after the year of exclusion).

Ordinary conditional matriculation exemption certificate

If you have an ordinary conditional exemption, you will not be allowed to proceed to second or further years of study until you have passed the outstanding modules and met the condition of that exemption.
