Unisa has said that they won't be accepting any late applications. They've also provided an update on offers for Grade 12 applicants for the 2021 academic year and payment of fees.



Sorry but Unisa has officially declared that they won't be accepting late applications. They also gave further details on Grade 12s of 2020 wanting to join the University and payment of fees.

Unisa released a statement which said:

Unisa will not accept any late applications or any requests for qualification changes.

They have also made it clear that placements will not be done at Unisa's regional offices and urged prospective students to not go to any regional office for feedback on their application.

Now that the Matric results for 2020 are out, once Unisa received them, they will then start offering spaces to Grade 12 applicants.

Unisa will make offers based on the number of spaces available for each qualification.

As for the payment of fees, Unisa also gave an instruction for students who are having their fees paid by a third party.

If your study fees are paid by a third party, which is a sponsor or employer, you must send the proof of payment to for payment allocation.
