UNIVERSITY APPLICATIONS/ADMISSION STATUSES EXPLAINED. 

WHAT IS AN APPLICATIONS/ADMISSION STATUS?  


A UNIVERSITY APPLICATION/ADMISSION STATUS IS A STAGE OF EACH PARTICULAR PROSPECTIVE STUDENT’S APPLICATION IS IN THE REVIEW PROCESS BY THE ADMISSIO COUNSELORS. THIS GIVES YOU AN IDEA OR UPDATE ON THE PROGRESS OF PROCESSION OF YOUR APPLICANT BEFORE THE FINAL STATEMENT IS GIVEN TO YOU REGARDING YOUR APPLICATION. THE APPLICATION/ADMISSION STATUS LETS YOU KNOW IF THERE ARE ANY OUTSTADING DOCUMENTS THAT YOU ARE SUPPOSEDLY HAVE TO SUBMIT IN ORDER FOR YOUR APPLICTION TO UNDERGO THE FULL SELECTION PROCESS. 


ADMISSION STATUSES VARY IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE MISSING INFO OR THE FACULTY THE APPLICATION IS SENT TO OR THE TYPE OF APPLICATION MADE. THIS GIVES YOU A CLEAR IMPRESSION OF WHAT TO PROBABLY EXPECT AS A FINAL ADMISSION STATUS WHICH WILL BE COMMUNICATED TO YOU BY SMS/ EMAIL DEPENDIND ON THE PREFFERED COMMUNICATION METHOD. 
IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THAT THE FINAL DECISION ON WHETHER YOUR APPLICATION IS SUCCESSFUL OR NOT DEPENDS ON YOUR FINAL GRADE 12 RESULTS. SO IF YOU APPLIED ON TIME FOR THE RIGHT COURSES WITH THE RIGHT SUBJECTS AND LEVELS PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOUR AND STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE APPLICATION STATUS SO MUCH AND CONCENTRATE ON YOUR STUDIES SO THAT YOU IMPROVE YOUR ACADEMIC PERFORMACE AND INCREASE YOUR CHANCES OF BEING FINALLY ACCEPTED IN JANUARY.  

THE FOLLOWING ARE THE POSSIBLE STATUSES A PROSPECTIVE STUDENT CAN GET…LET US EXPLAIN THEM TO YOU. 

ADMISSION WITHOUT STATUS. 
BE ADVICE THAT THE ADMISSION STATUSES “ APPLICATION IN PROCESS “ AND “ ADMISSION WITHOUT STATUS “ MEAN THAT YOUR APPLICATION IS STILL UNDER CONSIDERATION. SINCE APPLICATIONS FOR ADMISSION GO THROUGH VARIOUS DEPARTMENTAL AND FACULTY EVALUATION STAGES, THE STATUS MAY NOT EXACTLY INDICATE AT WHICH STAGE YOUR APPLICATION IS IN. THE FACT THAT IT IS IN THE PROCESS MEANS THAT IT IS BEING DEALT WITH AND YOU WILL BE RECEIVING FEEDBACK IN DUE COURSE. 

IF YOU HAVE BEEN INVITED FOR AN INTERVIEW, ADMISSION TEST, AUDITION, ETC. MEANS THAT YOU HAVE MET THE INITIAL ACADEMIC ENTRY REQUIREMENTS AND YOUR APPLICATION RESULT NOW DEPENDS ON THE RESULTS OF THE ONE ABOVE-MENTIONED EVALUATIONS YOU HAVE UNDERTAKEN. ONCE THE OUTCOME OF YOUR EVALUATION HAS BEEN FINALIZED, THE DEPARTMENT WITH WHICH YOU UNDERTOOK THE EVALUATION WITH WILL SEND YOUR FINAL RESULT TO THE ADMISSION OFFICE, WHICH WILL THEN OFFICIALLY COMMUNICATE THIS TO YOU IN WRITING. 


SO PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT THE PROCESS MAY TAKE TIME BUT THEY ARE NECESSARY TO PROTECT YOU AND YOUR UNIVERSITY’S RIGHTS, ALL THE DEPARTMENTS ARE OBLIGED BY THE UNIVERSITY POLICY TO FOLLOW THE RIGHT PROCEDURES IN DEALING WITH APPLICATIONS AND COMMUNICATING WITH PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS. A LITTLE PATIENCE IS THEREFORE REQUIRED IN SUCH INSTANCES. 


MONEY OMMITED. 

THIS APPLICATION/ADMISSION STATUS SIMPLY MEANS THAT YOU DIDN’T PAY THE APPLICATION FEE OR YOU HAVE NOT YET UPLOADED THE PROOF OF PAYMENT FEE PAYMENT. ALL INSTITUTIONS URGE PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS TO USE THEIR STUDENT NUMBER OR ID AS REFERENCE WHEN PAYING APPLICATION FEES TO AVOID CONFUSION AND THEN AFTER THE PAYMENT, THEY EXPECT YOU TO UPLOAD THE RECIEPT VIA YOUR STUDENT PORTAL. NO DOCUMENT WILL BE ACCEPTED OVER THE EMAIL. 


WAITING LIST. 

A UNIVERSITY ADMISSION STATUS THAT IS CLASSIFIED AS WAITING LIST MEANS THAT THE PROSPECTIVE STUDENT IS NOT FORMALLY ACCEPTED NEITHER FORMALLY REJECTED, THIS MEANS THAT THE PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS CAN EITHER STILL BE ADMITTED OR REJECTED. THE PROSPECTIVE STUDENT CAN BE ACCEPTED IF THERE IS ANY VACANT/SPACE IN THE COURSE OR DEPERTMENT IN WHICH THE PROSPECTIVE STUDENT MADE AN APPLICATION IN. THE FATE 0F WAITLISTED PROSPECTIVE STUDENS LIE ON A THING WIRE OF SPACE AVAILABILITY AFTER ACCEPTED STUDENTS HAVE REGISTERED. IT IS ADVICABLE THAT PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS APPLY TO MULTIPLE INSTITUTIONS IN ORDER TO HAVE A WIDE RANGE OF ISTITUTIONS TO CHOOSE FROM AFTER FINAL DECISIONS HAVE BEEN RELEASED. 
PROVISSIONALLY ACCEPTED/ SUBJECT TO GRADE 12 RESULTS. 


THIS IS ONE MOST COMMON STATUS. THIS MEANS THAT YOU STILL HAVE TO WRITE YOUR FINAL GRADE 12 EXAMINATION OR, AS THE IMPORTANT PEOPLE CALL IT, the NATIONAL SENIOR CERTIFICATE (NSC) OR EQUIVQLENT EXAMINATION. PROVISIONAL ADMISSION IS NOT A FINAL ADMISSION BUT IS DEPENDENT ON THE FINAL RESULTS OF THE NATIONAL SENIOR CERTIFCATE (NSC) OR EQUIVQLENT CERTIFICATION OR SELECTION PROCESS IN THE CASE OF SELECTION PROGRAMS. AFTER RECEIVING YOUR NSC, THE UNIVERSITY WILL INFORM YOU WHETHER YOU ARE FULLY ACCEPTED OR NOT. 

FULLY ACCEPTED. 

THIS IS MUSIC TO YOUR EARS AND APPLICALE TO THOSE WHO TOOK A GAP YEAR OR WERE JUST NOT READY TO STUDY. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY COMPLETED YOUR NATIONAL SENIOR CERTIFICATE AND COMPLY WITH THE ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS YOU CAN BE FULLY ACCEPTED. THIS MEANS YOU HAVE PASSED GRADE 12 AND YOUR HAVE THE NATIONAL SENIOR CERTIFICATE. LUCKY YOU. 


SUJECT TO SELECTION. 

THIS ONE A BIT TRICKIER. SELECTION PROGRAMS ARE THOSE COURSES THAT INCLUDE A SELECTION PROCESS, FOR EXAMPLE, BACHELOR OR NURSING SCIENCE BACHELOR OF SOCIAL WORK, BACHELOR OR LAW OR BACHELOR OF SOCIAL SCIENCES (PSYCHOLOGY). IT IS IMPORTANT TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU ARE AWARE OF THE SELECTION CRITERIA FOR THE COURSES MENTIONED ABOVE. 

SUBJECT TO OUTSTANDING DOCUMENTS. 

CONGRATULATIONS, YOUR APPLICATION HAS BEEN RECEIVED AND EVALUATED, AND YOU COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS AND PROGRAMME YOU ARE INTERESTED IN. BUT FOR SOME REASON, YOU DID NOT UPLOAD ALL THE REQUIRED DOCUMENTS. YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED AND ONCE WE RECEIVE THE OUTSTANDING DOCUMENTS, YOUR STATUS WILL CHANGE TO PROVISIONALLY ACCEPTED. 


WAITING APPROVAL. 

HAPPY...HAPPY...YOU HAVE APPLIED ONLINE, AND YOUR APPLICATION WAS RECEIVED BY THE INSTITUTION. IT IS NOW IN THE PROCESS OF BEING CONSIDERED. IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE ANY FEEDBACK WITHIN 3 WEEKS AFTER SUBMITTING YOUR APPLICATION, YOU ARE ADVICED TO CONTACT THE CENTRAL APPLICATION OFFICE. 

NEXT CHOICE BEING CONSIDERED.  

FINALLY, IT CAN ALSO HAPPEN THAT ONE OR MORE OF YOUR INDICATED CHOICES IS UNSUCCESSFUL OR ON A WAITING LIST. THIS STATUS INDICATES THAT YOUR NEXT REASONABLE CHOUCE IS CURRENTLY BEING CONSIDERED BUT THAT DOES NOT GRANT YOU ANY FULL ACCEPTANCE OR ADMISSIOON TO THE INSTITUTION AND THE FINAL DECISION IS SUBJECTED TO YOUR RESULTS VERSUS THAT MINIMUM ENTRY REQUIREMENTS AND SELECTION PROCESS.
