Unisa News Today on Extension of Student Assignment Deadlines

Unisa News Today – Unisa students who have been struggling with the unavailability of myModule 2022 will be glad to know that they have assignment deadline extensions coming their way. Here is why this is happening.

The University of South Africa (Unisa) has recently announced that they intend to implement a new learning management system in an effort to resolve existing issues with the old system.

Thus, the university will be extending assignment due dates when the system is fully operational. Unisa further states that in doing so, they have taken the following considerations into account:
  • Unisa has acknowledged that students may not have had access to their study material leading up to their assignment submission;
  • Some students do not have access to their module sites due to late registration;
  • Certain assignments are fully online, and students were not able to complete their assignments offline; and
  • Some students were not able to submit complete responses as their connectivity was interrupted.

To guarantee that the academic assessment plan is implemented as intended, the due dates for all Semester 1 assignments will be extended in a staggered manner.

In addition to this, Unisa has also stated that all other matters will be attended to, while their project team is still working to restore myModules 2022 sites back to functionality.


Extended assignment submission deadlines will be communicated to students through their myModules 2022 sites, once the system is fully operational.

Update on Unisa graduation ceremonies, the university has resolved to postpone all scheduled graduations from 15 March 2022 until Tuesday, 22 March 2022.
