2019 REGISTRATION COMMUNIQUE 

The University of Venda Executive Management and SRC had a meeting regarding 2019 student registration on Tuesday 08 January 2019. During this meeting the following decisions were arrived at: 

NSFAS Funded and sponsored students 

NSFAS funded and sponsored students should register without making an upfront payment. This is applicable to both returning and first-time entering students. 

Management Concession 

The University Management made a concession that all undergraduate students including missing middle/self-funded students can register for 2019 academic year without making an upfront payment. This concession is not applicable to postgraduate and international students. However, the missing middle/self-funded students are required to sign an acknowledgement of debt form. This implies that unfunded missing middle students who can afford to pay their fees are required to pay. Acknowledgement of debt forms must be signed by no later than Friday 18 January 2019. 

These students should ensure that they make the first payment of R4560.00 by no later than 01st March 2019. Missing middle students who fail to honour this commitment will be deregistered after the 01st March 2019. 

First-Time Entering students 

All first-time entering students who have been admitted to study at the University of Venda in 2019 academic year are urged to register for their respective qualifications within 03 working days. This implies that all these students are expected to finalise their registration by no later than Thursday 10 January 2019. Students who do not register within 03 days will have their spaces allocated to other qualifying students who are on the waiting list. 

Postgraduate and International students 

All postgraduate and international students must pay registration and all required fees as stipulated by the University. Management is aware that the system is open for all students including postgraduate and international students. It is worth reiterating that the concession made by the University management as outlined in the third paragraph of this communique does not apply to this category of students (postgraduate and international). 

Students who experience registration challenges should contact Student Administration and Finance Departments for assistance.
