- First Payment:
- All self-funded students are required to make a first fee payment towards fees BEFORE registration. This is a standard amount of R9340 that is applicable to all students. Students will not be able to register if this amount is not paid. If paying by EFT, please pay 4 days prior to registration in order for the payment to clear.
- If you cannot make this payment, you will be required to apply for a postponement. All fees for the year will then be due by the end of March. Students can apply for the postponement on the Online Registration accessible on the student self-service portal.
- You can only apply for a postponement if you have been offered, and have accepted, a place in a program.
- The first fee payment is not applicable if you:
- have been made a provisional offer for NSFAS funding for 2021;
- have been given a full Wits University Scholarship;
- fall within the funding threshold – i.e. your family earnings are below R350 000 per annum. If you fall into this category, you will be required to request a postponement of the first fee payment via the self-service portal;
- You can present proof to the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office that you have been awarded an external bursary of scholarship.
- Outstanding fees:
- Students owing R10 000 or less from prior years will be able to roll over the debt and register for the new academic year.
- Students with more than R10 000 debt from prior years will need to consult with the Fees Office prior to registering.
- Students who have secured NSFAS funding will have any outstanding amounts paid by the fund and are not therefore required to make payment
