University of South Africa UNISA how to Register

Successful applicants and re-registering students must register to study through Unisa . Applicants can only begin the registration process if they have received and accepted an official approval of their application. Re-registering students can begin the registration process after receiving their registration details from Unisa.
Unisa’s online registration process is quick, simple and accurate. This is why we recommend this option. Once again, when registering online, you’ll be prompted when information is missing or incorrect, helping you to ensure that you include all important details and upload all necessary documents when submitting your registration form.

The steps are as follows

  • Go to the Unisa registration website:
  • Enter your student number in the block provided and other details required. (If you don’t have a student number you won’t be able to continue; you’ll need to apply for a student number during the next application period.)
