Unisa Announcement on Semester 1 Extension

The announcement of Unisa’s website reads “Following the downtime experienced on myModules 2022 sites on 7-9 March and 14-16 March 2022, an additional week has been added to the semester 1 academic calendar to make up for the down time.

3.    Late registered students

  1. In some cases, particularly final year students, students were registered late. These students may not have had an opportunity to submit their assignments before their closing date.

If students fall within this category, please may you contact your lecturer for opening up your assignments  

4.    CTA/Engineering students
