Admission declined

Failure to pass the required number of modules will result in you not being able to study further at the undergraduate level. A student wishing to be re-admitted to Unisa after being excluded on the basis of poor performance in qualification may only do so after providing proof of successful completion of a one-year certificate program at NQF level 4, 5, or higher (with 48 credits) at another accredited institution or a Unisa short learning program. In order to satisfy the requirements of this rule, the student must have completed at least 48 credits before an application for re-admission will be considered.

These progression rules are subject to the following exceptions:

  • Students who are at the maximum time allowed and have less than 60 credits outstanding will be given 1 year to complete.
  • Students with disabilities may apply to the Registrar for exemption from the above rules.
  • Students who decide not to register for an academic year or semester must apply for a deferment; the academic year or semester will then not be taken into consideration in calculating the number of years.
  • Students who are excluded on grounds of poor academic performance have the right to appeal the decision through the Executive Dean of the College.
