How to Upload Documents at Unisa for 2024-2025

This guide will demonstrate to you the proper way to upload outstanding University of South Africa UNISA documents. In general, let’s suppose you’re applying or have applied without the necessary documentation. Now you’d like to return to the application page and upload the documents, or you’re a returning student reapplying and you’re wondering which document you’ll upload and how you’ll upload the required documents because, in most cases, Unisa will not show some commercial documents, but they’re actually required and must be re-uploaded.

Unisa requires that all documents be uploaded through the system throughout the application period.

When should a supporting document be uploaded?

Everyone applying for a new qualification (first-time applicants and Unisa students commencing a new qualification) must submit the relevant documents. The deadline for uploading the relevant documents is the application deadline, which is October 13 for undergraduate qualifications and November 10 for postgraduate qualifications. No documents submitted after the application deadline will be accepted.

Unisa Application Supporting Documents For 2024

All applicants seeking a new qualification must upload all necessary documents, which often include the following:

  • Copy of your school qualifications (eg Senior Certificate, National Senior Certificate)
  • Copy of your official tertiary academic record(s) (if applicable) (internet copies will not be accepted)
  • Copy of your ID document (RSA students) or ID/passport (international students)
  • Copy of your marriage certificate (if applicable) or divorce decree (if applicable)
  • Sworn translations of documents if they are not in English or Afrikaans
  • Some qualifications may require additional documents.

Supporting Documents’ File Format

Upload only the necessary documents as individual files, not the entire set of documents as a single file. Please be certain that the documents and photographs you upload are viewable.

  • Each file cannot be greater than 2MB (2048KB).
  • Only documents in black and white may be submitted.
  • The following file types are  permitted: TIF (image file), PDF (Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format file), or DOC (Word document file)
