IMPORTANT:

  • If you send an e-mail directly to a Unisa e-mail address, insert your student number in the subject line to effect the correct routing to an advisor for processing.
  • Please check the list carefully and send an enquiry to one e-mail address at a time or one person only. This will ensure that there is no confusion as to who must respond, thereby preventing unnecessary delays in the response.
