The institution says it will assist students on a first come, first serve basis.

Spokesperson, Martin Ramotshela, says the decision was taken based on the request from Universities South Africa (USAf) to allow for late applications for the 2018 academic year. 

At the same time Ramotshela warns that admission to the institution will be based on the availability of courses.

"We cannot commit ourselves to the number of students we will allow to come in and register. Students will be assisted on a first come first serve basis.

"We will only accept students in the places that will still be available at the time students are coming in and apply."

The announcement follows a picket by the Economic Freedom Fighter's Student Command (EFFSC) at Unisa's Sunnyside Campus on Friday.

The EFFSC's Itumeleng Molefe says the body demanded the university to allow for walk-in late applications and no application or registration fee.

Ramotshela says management maintained its position on additional fees.

"The decision on application and registration fees still stands which means they are still applicable. There is no decision that it is doing away with it."
