Please share this article


Receiving the news that your application to study at Rhodes University has been accepted can be exciting. However, being accepted is only the first part of your admission process, as you will have to complete your registration process in order to officially be enrolled.


Rhodes University is an institution of higher learning located in Grahams Town, Eastern Cape. If you have been accepted to study at Rhodes University, you will need to complete the registration process to become an official student.

Here's a guide on how to do your Rhodes University registration.

Step 1: Complete initial requirements

Before you can complete your full administrative registration, you will need to complete some initial requirements. These include paying your initial fee and, if applicable, completing your residence allocation and visa requirements.

Step 2: Gather the required documents

To make your registration process as smooth as possible, make sure to bring along the following supporting documents:

  • Your student number
  • A copy of your official school results
  • Evidence that your Initial Fee Payment (IF) has been cleared (see “fees” on the Rhodes University website)
  • A copy of the deposit slip if you have deposited money into the University account
  • If you have been awarded a bursary or NSFAS, a copy of your letter of award, which should have been emailed through to the Fees Office before the closing registration deadline.
  • For school leavers: Your final NSC/ A level / HIGCSE results
  • For transferring students: Your transcript from your previous university and course outlines
  • For international students: Proof of Initial Fee (IF) clearance by no later than 30 January 2023, passport with a valid study visa, proof of your medical aid cover arranged through Simeka Health.

Step 3: Attend registration

Once you have completed the initial requirements and gathered all the required documents, you will be able to complete a full administrative registration.

During registration, you will need to provide all the required documents and complete any necessary forms. Make sure to double-check that you have all the necessary documents and information before arriving at registration.

Step 4: Submit your final results

If your A-level or HIGCSE results are not yet available by the time of registration, you will not be allowed to register until your results are available. Make sure you submit your final results to the university before you arrive and bring a copy of your official statement of results with you to registration.

Step 5: Clear your fees

If your fees have not been cleared by the specified closing deadline (by payment of the Initial Fee (IF) or by making appropriate arrangements for the payment of your fees with the university’s Accountant, you will lose your place in your student residence. Make sure to clear your fees on time to avoid losing your place.

Completing your Rhodes University registration requires careful planning and attention to detail. By following these steps and ensuring that you have all the required documents, you can complete your registration process efficiently and start your academic journey at Rhodes University.
