Unisa has extended the submission date of assignments. The university confirmed this, following the extension of the academic year.
The new due date of all assignments is now 12 May 2021. However, this due date does not apply to the School of Business Leadership.
"Due to the extended registration date, the university will allow the submission of all assignments until 12 May 2021 where the due dates of such assignments are before 12 May 2021. This does not apply to modules offered by the School of Business Leadership (SBL). The due dates of assignments scheduled later than 12 May are not affected by this extension."
All students have been urged to submit their assignments before the deadline of 12 May.
Unisa has welcomed new and returning students to the 2021 academic year. All registered students have been urged to start learning immediately.
"Now that you are registered, we urge you to immediately start the learning process. You should not wait for the delivery of hard copies of study material. You already have access to all learning material on the myUnisa platform where you will be able to download your study materials and also engage online with fellow students and your lecturers and start the learning process." said Unisa in a statement.

"Students who received and accepted an offer for the 2021 academic year, but do not register for 2021, will need to re-apply for admission from September 2021 for the 2022 academic year."
