International Registration fee

 

  • The IRF is payable annually by all non-South African students including Asylum Seekers.
  • Permanent residency holders and Refugee status students do not pay IRF.
  • In general, if a permanent residence application is successful by the last date for registration (in March and as determined by the University Calendar, Part 1) for the current academic year, then the permanent resident will be allowed to register on this status. However, if the permanent residence status becomes effective after this date, it will only be taken into consideration at the next registration period of the following academic year.
  • If a refugee status application is successful by the last date for registration (in March and as determined by the University Calendar, Part 1) for the current academic year, then the refugee will be allowed to register on this status. However, if the refugee status becomes effective after this date, it will only be taken into consideration at the next registration period of the following academic year.
