  • RPL / Entrance requirements

    This document describes and includes an application form for the Recognition of Prior Learning or the Transfer of Credits, including the Access Assessment.

Access Assessment

This assessment is designed for people who lack the secondary schooling certification normally required as part of a registered programme's entrance requirements, as well as for those who have not done much by way of formal study since completing their secondary schooling.

Students who have the necessary secondary schooling certification but but have not been involved in higher education can either use the Access Assessment as an evaluation tool to test appropriateness of intended study paths or alternatively can register for the Higher Certificate in Theology – which is a shorter, attainable qualification which has clear progression paths to other programmes.

Access Assessment

Online Registration

Only current students who are busy on a study programme may use their online account to register (from 01 November).

Pay or deposit your fees (and fax/email the proof of payment) once you've submitted your online application.

Courses with Catholic content

The Higher Certificate in Theology programme offers courses with a denominational focus. See this document for information regarding courses with a specifically Catholic focus.

General Information

Faxed documents are problematic - we might not receive them or they might not be legible even though you have a transmission confirmation. Always follow-up after three working days to confirm if your faxed documents have been processed.

Register Early

You qualify for the larger discount on your fees, and you miss the last minute rush and get your materials sent to you early. Even if you are still waiting for your results you can register for next courses early and register the 'extras' later.

Results Letters

Current students, do check your result letters for any eligible "component registrations". If you have not completed a course but have passed at least half it's work, then there is the option to 'carry' results forward to the next year only. See the Yearbook for details.

Academic Records

These can be requested from the College (in writing) and cost R80. Current students who log into their online account will see a summary of courses/credits attempted.

Preprinted Application Forms

We will not be mailing pre-printed application form for 2021. Current students will receive instructions on how to proceed with their 2021 applications online.

Outstanding Fees

A reminder that students with outstanding accounts will not recieve their end-of-year results nor will they be issued with Academic Records. Those who have defaulted on their installment payments will not be offered Option C (installments) again.

Submitting your application

A stress-free registration is one that started early. Don't leave it to the last minute. Don't courier documents to us -- provided you post before the closing date we will still register you after the closing date IF the date-stamps for your deposit and posting were before the closing date.

Tracking your registration

If you have provided us with an e-mail address or cell phone number then we will attempt to send your tracking number to you when your materials are dispatched.
