Unisa Responds To Frustrated Students About Their Delayed Certificates


Unisa has finally issued a short statement in response to recently qualified students who haven't received their certificates. A student went as far as starting a petition to have their voices heard.


For months, Unisa students have complained that the University has not issued their certificates and that it's putting a hold on their future and employment.

Students are complaining that they have been trying to get answers from the university on when they would receive their certificates. 

They then took it a step further and issued a petition to have their voices heard after a delayed response by the Institution. So far, 346 people have signed the petition.

The year 2020 Unisa graduates said they had expected to graduate in the early weeks of April but that it's now been three months without their certificates. 

Students added that other universities were able to proceed with graduation ceremonies virtually. 

Unisa responded in a short statement saying that they note the concerns of the students:

The University of South Africa (Unisa) has noted concerns raised by students on mainstream and social media platforms about the issuing and delivery of graduation certificates.

The university added that students will be receiving their certificates as from Thursday, 11 August 2021. The issuing of certificates continues at regional centres such as Cape Town and East London from 10 August 2021. 

Unisa says they had already started issuing the certificates at regional centres but suspended the action due to alert level 4 lockdown. 

The university issued an apology saying students will be receiving an SMS with dates and addresses where they can collect their certificates.
