So about 3 weeks ago I decided to enrol for a degree at UNISA. Getting everything sorted out was a pain, but I finally got all my study materials and started pouring over them.
I have since realised that I don't like their biased study material and am not as interested in the subject as I thought I was.
I've spent most of the morning trying to find information on cancelling the modules involved and the possibility of a refund. So far I've found several conflicting things on-line:
1. You can cancel at any time before the cancellation date, the 15th of August 2010, and only forfeit the application fees should you return the study materials in mint condition.
2. You lose 40% of your study fees, plus all your application fees should you cancel before the 15th of August and 50% of it thereafter.
3. You lose 50% of your study fees, plus all your application fees should you cancel before the 15th of August and all of it thereafter.
Some of this came off Hello Peter, some from forums, some from the UNISA website and none of it paints a clear picture as to what exactly happens when you cancel your modules.
I'd call them, but obviously it's weekend and Monday is a public holiday, so I was wondering if anybody on the forum has had experience in doing this, or knows where I could find proper information.
If it's possible that I could get at least part of the fees back it would be good to know.
