This is to let you know that Management has decided that the period for late registrations has been extended until further notice. No late registration penalties will be applicable as long as the extended registration period is in effect.
Heads of Departments are to exercise their discretion, in consultation with their Executive Deans, in relation to registrations, bearing in mind that it is vital that we meet our planned enrolment targets. The reason for the above is that we are still well behind our enrolment targets for both first time entering as well as returning students.
The Registrar’s office, Ms Vivy Govender has been sending out detailed statistics indicating programmes which still have spaces. Please use lists earlier provided to you by Student Admissions to source qualifying applicants and preferably arrange to call such applicants personally in order to meet your targets.
