Missed your college application deadline? Don’t fret, we’ve rounded up some colleges that accept applications all year-round.

Missing a college/ university application deadline can be a nightmare, it leaves you with the question, “what to do now?” You might have missed your deadline due to many unforeseen circumstances: you had a family emergency, you had to upgrade your marks, or you just found out about a really great college too late.

Fortunately for you, these college institutions offer late applications for those who weren't able to apply due to certain reasons, even if it’s after the official ‘Regular Decision’ deadline. You can go online and apply at these various college/ university websites:

  • Tshwane North College offers late applications for trimester courses. The registration take places around January, April/May and August/September

  • South West Gauteng College also offers part-time and full time late applications for qualifications such as Business Studies, Engineering, Learnership Programmes and Skills Programmes. Applications close on 17 December 2018

  • Damelin College offers late applications which are open until classes commence in the second week of February 2018

  • Dermatech Health and Skin Training Institute offers applications throughout the year. Their mid-year intake, however, closes in June of every year

  • University of South Africa (UNISA) only offers its undergraduate late applications in Education [a Higher certificate, Diploma, B.Tech degree, or Postgraduate certificate]. After your application has been accepted, you must then register within the registration period, which will be in early 2019.

Please note that most institution advise against any walk-in inquiries, and suggests sticking to the online method. The use of campus facilities may not be available to those who turn up.
