Curriculum Approval

Curriculum Approval

Returning Students (Undergraduate and post-graduate)

If you submitted the reply form timeously and have been pre-registered you may be able to miss this process.  Your administrative registration certificate will indicate if you are required to attend curriculum approval or not. 

Please check your administrative registration certificate carefully – do not just presume that you can skip curriculum approval.  If you are cleared for curriculum approval and require no further changes you will not need to go.

Curriculum approval for returning students (undergraduate and post-graduate) will take place as set out in the table below:

Minimize the time you take to register by pre-registering.  You then take the express registration queue as you only need to sign the registration form and have your student card updated.  Pre-registration can be done on ROSS from 29 January 2016.


You are required to present you current student card at registration.  It will be updated with a new sticky layer.  If you do not keep your card you will have to obtain a replacement card and pay the standard card replacement fee.


If you do this timeously your Dean will have time to check it and you will be able to avoid the curriculum approval queues completely.  Your administrative registration certificate will confirm that your curriculum has been approved and that you do not need to attend curriculum approval unless you wish to change your choices. This needs to be done before 1 Feburary when the system will be closed for the Deans to approve the pre-registrations.


All students whose courses begin on Monday, 15 Feburary 2016 will be charged a late registration fee of R1300 if they have not administratively registered AND have had their curriculum approval completed by 12h00 on Saturday, 13 Feburary 2016.  The curriculum apporval schedule for returning students (undergraduate and post-graduate) is set out in the table above.

The fee will be waived only in exceptional circumstances.  Reasons which would be acceptable would be such as those which would lead to a successful aegrotat examination application.  Requests for a fee waiver, together with supporting documentation, should be addressed to the Manager: Academic Administration.

If you are in residence you MUST advise the University that you are going to be arriving late or you will lose your place in residence.

You are reminded that students are not allowed to start courses after the end of the second week of lectures so your late registration cannot be later than 26 February 2016.


It is alwasy wise to check your registration on ROSS to double-check the subjects you have registered for.  If you need to change your subjects you can do so at the Dean's Office or by seeing an adviser in the Academic Administration Office.  However Science and Pharmacy students are always required to change courses with the Dean.
