The University Of South Africa (Unisa) has announced new deadlines for the extension of semester one assignments. This has been a much anticipated announcement from the university, after students were negatively impacted by the new online system.

Earlier this year Unisa moved to postpone the due dates of assignments as the university battled technical difficulties with its new online system. This resulted in the inability of students to submit their assignments on due dates. 

Unisa says that management has taken the decision to extend the all assignment due dates that were due before 8 April 2022. 

The university said, “This is to provide additional opportunity to those students who have experienced challenges in their submissions and were unable to successfully submit their assignments. Students can expect to view their new extended dates from 12 April 2022”. 

Unisa however acknowledges that some lecturers have made alternative arrangements to students through assignment electives. 

The university said that assignments falling under these categories will be closed off by lecturers and students must continue submitting through elective assignments. 

Unisa added, “The extension of assignment due dates will be done on a staggered basis with the first closing date of the extension starting 16 April 2022 and ending by 27 April 2022. The first semester examination timetable will be made available on the Unisa Examination Timetable Tool and will be available as from 15 April 2022”

The first examination period is set to commence on 16 May 2022.

The automated extension will not however apply to all students as some courses are unique in their assessment studies. 

The automotive extension will not include Graduate School of Business Leadership, School of Engineering, CTA and Signature courses modules. These students must visit their course sites to view their due dates. 

Unisa has thanked students for their patience as they work through the challenges.
