Payment plan for tuition and residence fees

  • Students shall not be allowed to enrol or add/change modules at any stage unless the financial obligations have been met in full.
  • Accounts reflect various payment dates indicating the latest date by which the payment must reach the University of Limpopo. If a module’s block code is changed it could in some instances result in an earlier payment date as it is determined by the block code of the module.
  • These payment dates cannot be extended under any circumstances as the University of Limpopo does not permit instalment arrangements beyond the respective payment dates.
  • The University of Limpopo uses the services of external debt collectors for the collection of overdue accounts and the student will be held liable for all costs incurred including the debt collector’s costs.
  • Not receiving an account statement does not relieve students of the obligation to pay by the payment due dates.

Different categories of international students

  • South African citizen provided he/she does not have a study visa in his/her other passport. Students should bear in mind that some countries do not allow dual citizenship and that South Africa does not allow dual citizenship with countries that do not allow it. Therefore, to register as a South African citizen, students will be required to submit a South African passport or South African identity document. This category of students qualifies to pay local fees.
  • Citizen of another country but with permanent residence in South Africa: Permanent residence in South Africa entitles the holder to rights similar to that of South African citizens with a few exceptions. The students will be required to submit a valid passport with a South African permanent residence permit/stamp therein. This category of students qualifies to pay local fees. University of Limpopo Fees
  • Refugees: A refugee is a foreign national who has refugee status accorded by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), has a South African identity book which is stamped as refugee status, and is normally valid for two years until permanent status is awarded. If not, according to status reverts to “asylum seeker”. The Refugee Act, Act No. 130 of 1998 (Section 27) provides refugee students with the right to study without a study permit. This category of students qualifies to pay local fees.
  • Asylum seekers: An asylum seeker is a person who comes to South Africa and applies to the government for protection as a refugee. An asylum seeker should have a valid permit issued under the Immigration Act, Act No. 13 of 2002 (Section 13) Department of Home Affairs. Tuition fees are similar to those of local South African students and they pay local application fees. No medical aid cover is legally required, however, it is highly recommended.
