UNISA Assignment Dates Moved Back

Due to the Nationwide Lockdown, UNISA has decided to communicate with its students using its online platform. Unfortunately, assignments have been moved back and these assignments will have to be uploaded online.

The National Lockdown has been declared by President Cyril Ramaphosa to stop the spread of COVID-19. During the lockdown, all UNISA services to their students will be online. 

Study material is made available to all their students. If anyone has not yet received it then they should go to myUnisa and download it to prepare for assessments. Those who have recently written a supplementary exam or who registered for a postgraduate qualification will be able to access the study material online as soon as your registration is finalised.

Assignment closing dates have moved to 24 April 2020 for the first assignment and the second assignment is due on 8 May 2020. This extension excludes modules with continuous assessment, online assessment and where the summative assessment is a portfolio. With regards to methods of submitting assignments, more information is available via this link,

Regarding examinations, UNISA is working with the NSRC and the Department of Health to find a safe, fair and feasible arrangement to deal with the May/June 2020 examinations and will send follow-up communications soon. As you are all aware, they are reliant on the instructions received from the President, now the Commander in Chief, who will decide on the status and the progression of the pandemic. They will, therefore, provide you will further feedback on the situation regarding the first semester examinations.

Some lecturers have diverted their office phones through to their private phones and might still be reached by phone. Students are encouraged to only phone during office hours if needed. Use e-mail where possible to contact the Unisa staff.

Applicants will receive communication from UNISA by the end of June regarding their application status. Any other information such as finalisation of registrations and allocation of funds can be read on the myUnisa platform via this link,
