Unisa Suspends Handout of Certificates

Unisa has announced that they'll be stopping the issuing of certificates. Previously, Unisa students would have received SMSs telling them to fetch their certificates from campus but this will now end.


Unisa has put out word saying that they have suspended the handing out of certificates to students as students were required to come to campus to do so. However, with the third wave, this has now been stopped until further notice.

Unisa posted the following on their social media pages:

Due to the Alert Level 3 regulations announced by the President on 15 June 2021, the issuing of certificates to students at Unisa offices is suspended until further notice.

Before this announcement, students would have received an SMS saying that they should come and fetch their certificate from campus.

In order to be safe, Unisa was inviting a specific number of students to come to campus each day but this will no longer be happening for the timebeing.

The University has not given any updates just yet on when this will continue or if anything will change in terms of issuing these certificates.

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, the graduation ceremony at Unisa will be held virtually at the end of July 2021 and students should expect communications regarding this via SMS and the Graduation website. 

Unisa is an Open Distance Learning (ODL) university which allows students to pursue their studies by using online resources and study materials provided by Unisa themself. They offer many certificates, degrees and diplomas at the bachelor, master and doctoral levels.
