GENERAL INFORMATION AND REGULATIONS
Prospective students who MATRICULATED PRIOR TO 2008 must please contact NMMU’s Admissions Office to determine their admission requirements.

Tel: 041 504 3911
E-mail: admissions@nmmu.ac.za
Web: www.nmmu.ac.za

GENERAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

  • Prospective students will need at least a National Senior Certificate (NSC) or equivalent school-leaving certificate for admission to a diploma programme and must ensure that four of their seven subjects are from the designated list for admission to a degree programme.
  • If an N3 Certificate was obtained, the N3 results together with the applicant’s Grade 12 language results are used.
  • Apart from this, there are also specific subject requirements for some qualifications.
  • Admission to an undergraduate programme will be further determined by an applicant’s Admission Points Score (APS). The APS system is used for allocating point values to your seven NSC subjects (see Table A).
  • Applicants who do not meet the general requirements for the APS and/or the specific requirements for admission to a module or programme may be given the opportunity to be assessed on the Access Assessment Battery (AAB). Applicants must have a minimum APS of 22 in order to apply for a programme at the NMMU.
  • There are limits to the number of students that can be admitted to each programme. Meeting the minimum admission requirements does NOT guarantee acceptance and you may be required to undergo further testing and/or be interviewed. If a programme is full, you may be denied admission even though you meet the minimum requirements.

Qualification Minimum Statutory Entry Requirement
National Higher Certificate: Pass NSC, together with any other university requirements.
Diploma: Pass NSC with an achievement rating of 3 (40-49%) or better in four subjects, together with any other university requirements.
Bachelor’s Degree: Pass NSC with an achievement rating of 4 (50-59%) or better in four subjects from the designated list, together with any other university requirements.

How to calculate your Admission Points Score (APS):

  • The APS system allocates point values to the levels of achievement obtained for your matric subjects.
  • Write down your seven NSC subjects and the levels obtained. If you have 8 or more subjects, use Life Orientation + the best six subjects (the six subjects which have the highest level).
  • Allocate points according to the table below.
  • Add up the number of points you have to calculate your APS.

RE-ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMMES

  • Once a student has been admitted to a programme and studies have commenced, it is expected that reasonable academic progress will take place every year. However, in reality some students do not live up to this expectation and the University is then obliged to deal with that situation. The outcome may be that such students would have to terminate their studies. To deal with situations like this the University has adopted a Policy on Re-admission to Undergraduate Programmes and each faculty has formulated specific re-admission rules applicable to the programmes offered by that faculty.
  • The reality that many students may initially find the transition from school to university challenging is accommodated in the re-admission requirements and therefore consideration is given to all the factors that impact on students in their first year of study.
  • When considering a student’s re-admission status, the period of study will influence the outcome of the decision. A minimum and maximum period of study has been determined for each programme (please consult the General Prospectus for details). In the event that a student has reached the end of the prescribed maximum period of study, the student will only be re-admitted under special circumstances (e.g. when the student, with due consideration of his/her academic record, is likely to complete his/her qualification by the end of the following year).
  • Since monitoring of the academic progress of students is on-going, students whose progress is not satisfactory may be referred to Student Counselling for assessment and structured intervention to improve their chances of success.
  • Students who are allowed to continue with their studies may nevertheless be registered subject to certain conditions. Such conditions may include limiting the number modules the student may register for and/or making continuation with studies in the second semester subject to the achievement of a defined performance in the first semester.
  • The conditions attached to re-admission of a student who has made unsatisfactory progress after their first year of study, would be considered very carefully so that good students that are applying are not turned away from the University due to space constraints and the resultant capping of student numbers.

Re-admission requirements
In order to be re-admitted to the BA Law programme, a student needs to have accumulated a minimum number of credits at the end of each year of study, as indicated in the table below. If that has not been achieved, the student may either be re-admitted subject to certain conditions or be refused re-admission.

Process to determine whether re-admission requirements have been met
The following process will be followed to determine whether a student has met the re-admission requirements:

  • At the end of each year Faculty Administration reviews students’ progress and simultaneously identifies those students who have not met the required re-admission requirements. Heads of Department, in consultation with Faculty Administration, finalise the list of students who have not met the re-admission requirements;
  • Faculty Administration informs students accordingly in writing and copies of the letters are placed on the students’ records;
  • Students who have been refused re-admission have one opportunity to apply for enrolment in an alternative programme via the Faculty Administration Office;
  • Students have the right to appeal against the decision to refuse them re-admission.

Appeal procedure
The student has the right to appeal against a decision to refuse re-admission. The decision reached by the appropriate faculty committee regarding the re-admission appeal will be final and no further appeal will be permitted.

The process followed to apply for, consider and deal with a re-admission appeal is as follows: 

  • A student must submit their appeal in writing on a prescribed re-admission appeal form, with full motivation and supporting documentation, to the Faculty Administration by either the last day of the re-examination period or within five (5) working days of receiving notification of re-admission refusal, whichever date is the latest. The Faculty Administration must forward the appeal, together with a copy of the student’s study record and the letter in which the student was informed that he/she was being refused re-admission, to the Committee.
  • The Committee will then handle the appeal where consideration could be given to factors such as:

(a) The student’s academic record.

(b) The appropriateness of the reasons for the refusal to re-admit the student.

(c) Whether there are any special circumstances related to the student’s unsatisfactory academic performance that should be taken into account and which could mitigate against refusing re-admission.

  • A statement of the outcome of the appeal and a motivation for the decision reached will be communicated via e-mail and placed on the student’s record by the Faculty Administration.
