Thank you for visiting our website. I invite you to take the time to navigate through this site. We have established Authorised testing centers in Canada, USA, Mexico and Bermuda in order to provide universities administrative services during the year. Â For now these are UNISA authorized testing centers for students residing in North and South America, and for those who are considering or already registered in distance education courses and programs offered by UNISA. We welcome other institutions exams for their students in our centers. Please refer to the authorised exams centres list and select the examination center close to where you live. The code of this centre must then be given as your answer to the question on the registration form. The center name and code must also be given if, during the year, you request that your examination center be changed. NOTE that you may be requested by the University to write your examination(s) at a center other than that of your choice. However, such cases do not occur often, and happen only when the University finds it necessary.
Students must ensure that the examination dates do not clash with any public holidays in their particular country. If unable to write/sit for an examination due to a public holiday, the student must apply to have the examination deferred, if he or she qualifies. Such students are also subject to the rules and regulations of that country. The university cannot be held liable for any examinations missed as a result of the aforementioned. Students will either have to apply for a deferment in terms of Rule 17 or re-register if the missed examination had been a second examination opportunity. The university will not make special exam arrangements in such cases.
A student may change his or her examination centre after registration. An application to change must reach the university on/before the following dates, as no late applications will be accepted on 08 /February for the May/June examinations and 31 July for the October/November examinations and 15 October for the January/February examinations Do not hesitate to contact us with any question you may have.
