Are you facing challenges with Unisa assignments submission? Unisa assignments can be submitted via myUnisa dashboard or placed in a Unisa assignment box, posted to the University of South Africa, or submitted via courier.
At UNISA, assignments help lecturers to see whether you understand the module, and they help you to learn the work and prepare for exams.
They’re critical and compulsory – you won’t be allowed to write the examination unless you’ve completed the relevant assignments.
It is important to always keep a copy of your assignment in case the university does not receive an assignment and you are requested to re-submit a copy.
Watch this video which shows you how to prepare, format, complete & submit Unisa assignments or read the guide below.
How to submit unisa assignments
Here is a step-by-step instruction for submitting online assignments.
To submit an assignment, use a ﬁle format that can be uploaded to myUnisa. These formats are listed in the “Specify the type of ﬁle” drop-down list on the submission screen.
A pdf ﬁle is the preferred option (formatting and layout are retained). Do not submit assignments in write-protected/read-only pdf formats. Use only the Adobe pdf format.
Information on pdf converters can be found on your dashboard under “Electronic
resources”. Navigate to the assignments tool to start the process.
When you click “Continue”, your assignment will be uploaded to the Unisa network.
This may take several minutes depending on the size of your assignment and the speed of your internet connection.
Once the assignment is received, its details will be displayed on your screen for ﬁnal checking. You can either go back and make corrections or click on the “Submit assignment” to submit it.
Ensure that your answers to multiple-choice questions are ready before connecting to
the internet. It will cost you money to work out answers while online. Check for mistakes before submitting your Unisa assignment.
Don’t wait until the closing date
Try to submit your assignments at least 3 working days before the due date, as you may experience unforeseen problems (e.g. your internet connection is down) on the day you want to submit my Unisa assignments.
Don’t run into grace period issues
Don’t submit the same assignment via two separate channels (eg myUnisa and the post). Any documents/assignments uploaded to your myUnisa admin must be virus-free.
If you repeatedly submit documents with viruses, you may lose the right to use my Unisa student portal.
Assignments of modules offered fully online must be submitted online. Hard copy unisa assignments submitted for online modules will be returned to the student unmarked.
Assignments submitted via myUnisa admin which are marked onscreen (except multiple-choice question assignments, blogs, portfolios, and discussion forums) will be available for viewing on my.unisa.ac.za.
Notiﬁcation of the marked assignment (together with a link) will be sent to your myLife e-mail account. Download your marked assignment, so that you have access to it even when you are offline.
Unisa’s Assignment Division does not accept requests to cancel assignments submitted via myUnisa. It is your responsibility to ensure that the content of your assignment is correct before you submit it.
