This page explain in depth each of these steps, and you can download our tutorial booklet.
Before you can start registering for your degree with UNISA, you need to apply to the actual university. This happens before the registration and when you actively begin to study. Applications are accepted in April and August (so it’s best to register early). Check the next application dates.
Once you have submitted your application form + supporting documents and UNISA processes your application you will receive a student number. Remember this student number as you’ll use it for my.unisa.ac.za and further communications with the university.
You must thereafter pay a non-refundable application fee of R100. You can pay online via credit card (response is quicker) or via bank deposit. More information on paying the application fee and international payments.
UNISA will get back to you to inform you about the outcome of your application. For enquiries regarding applications call UNISA on 012 429 6171 or email UNISA via email@example.com. Expect the processing of the application to take from three days to a few weeks.
