Unisa registration online

2011-12-22 00:00

UNISA students are avoiding the long queues and registration delays by settling for the quick and easy way of online registration.

Students who did not register at the university’s campuses from November until this Tuesday have until tomorrow to register online or do the process early next year.

Unisa spokesperson Doreen Gough said they have had an influx of students already registered to avoid the January registration rush.

“We have been handling close to 4 007 registrations a day including online registrations with students rushing to get registration through before we close between Christmas and the New Year. Although online registration is the fastest and easiest way to go, some students still prefer coming to the campus.

“This could be because they have some other educational issues that they need advice on and solutions for,” said Gough.

The university has already pro­cessed more than 90 000 registrations leaving 56 867 students who have not yet made payment.

Second year accounting student Yerossa Chetty (20) said she spent three hours in a queue to register last year, so this year she’ll be settling everything online.

“Doing everything online is simple and you register with a click of a button. This saves you a lot of time and hassles of standing in the long queue in this heat, which I am never doing again,” she said.

BCom Accounting first year student Cardin Sharpley (19) said he completed his registration on Tuesday and received prompt feedback.

“It was the first time I had registered online. Three hours after completing my registration I got an SMS detailing my payment options. I would not want to be part of the people who queue at the campus the whole day or spend the night there when there is a simpler way of doing things,” he said.
