Unisa Late Application 2024/2025

Unisa Late Application 2024/2025 / Unisa application 2024 still open

All prospective applicants should go to the official website and begin their late application if they are submitting it for the first time or giving themselves a second shot (Previous Applicants). Prospective students who missed the initial application window but want to study at the University of South Africa, UNISA, for the 2024 academic year can now apply through the UNISA application portal because admission to UNISA is still open.


Will I will still be able to submit any outstanding documents after applications have closed

After the application deadline, Unisa will accept any late applications or documents submitted using its online application tool after it reopens for late admissions. Once the application portal is closed, you will be unable to upload any pending documents. However, you may reapply during the 2024 late application period.



Will I be able to change my proposed qualification after I have submitted my application (even for Grade 12 applicants)

Once an application has been submitted, no qualification can be added or altered. During the application procedure, you may submit applications for a maximum of two qualifications. As a backup plan, you might want to apply for a lower-level qualification.

Current or returning Unisa students who wish to change to a new qualification/specialization may ONLY apply for this change during the relevant application period.
