An undergraduate student is normally registered for a credit load of no more than 120 credits in any given academic year, except where higher credit loads have been approved by Senate. The dean, in order to enable the student to meet the progression requirements for continuation of study, or to meet the requirements for the completion of the programme for which the student is registered, may allow such a student to register for a credit load not exceeding 150 credits, except where higher credit loads have been approved by Senate.
A student registers at the University for a full-time academic programme at the time and in the manner determined by Council from time to time. By virtue of such registration, the student subject himself/herself to the Universities Institutional rules.
Registration takes place in accordance with the regulations applicable to the particular programme for which the student registers, and on condition that compliance with the requirement if that program is the students responsibility .At the beginning of an academic year, a student registers for all the modules he or she intends taking in that particular year (whether these are first-semester, second-semester or year modules).
A student may register for a module only if the official class timetable allows the student to attend all the classes and if there are no test or examination timetable clashes. A student is not permitted to register for a module after the first two weeks of lectures in that quarter or semester have passed, with the exception of cases that have been approved by the Registrar, or the Executive Director or Director responsible for Enrolment and Student Administration, or a duly authorised University official.
a module that is taken for non-degree or non-diploma purposes may take
place only with the approval of the dean.
After registration, a student is obliged to pay the fees due on or before the date stipulated in the Senate-approved University calendar. A student who cancels his or her registration after
the stipulated date, is not entitled to any refund and remains liable for the full tuition fee. The University will levy an administration fee in the case of late deregistration of modules. In the case of the Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS), the faculty timetable and
regulations will apply.
