UFS Senior Undergraduate Students Academic Merit Awards – Check below:
Academic merit awards for senior undergraduate students
The University reserves the right to amend the regulations and award values and/or conditions applicable to the allocation of awards without prior notice. An academic merit award is based on the achievement of a student in a particular course and is
associated with the tuition fees that are applicable to that course. An academic merit award is automatically allocated on the basis of the academic achievements of a student during a previous year.
The award is made with the provision that a student achieve an average total examination mark of at least 75% at the end of a calendar year. All modules taken by the student are considered in the calculation of the average of 75%, in other words, also modules that were failed, discontinued, or did not receive admission to write examination.
The following formula is used to calculate the value of the award:
Tuition fees of each module in which a distinction is achieved x mark achieved for the specific module/100 x calculation factor, for example:
75% obtained in Module XYZ and module cost is R4000 = R4000 x 75/100 x 0.5 (the factor is currently 0.5 and is subject to change) = R1500.00.

Varsity College Students

 Students from other universities
Academic merit awards will only be considered after submission of a written application to the Financial Aid Office, accompanied by a certified copy of the study record and proof of fees paid for the specific modules/course.
First-year students who first registered at other higher-education institutions
First-time entering first-year students, who first registered at other higher education institutions,
discontinued their studies, and then register at this university, will not qualify for academic merit
awards during their first year of study.
Interruption of studies
In order to qualify for an academic merit award, a student must register at the University as a
student again. If there is an interruption of more than five (5) years between the last examination
(matriculation or university) and the year in which the award must be allocated, the student does
not qualify for an award.
Discontinuation of study
If a student discontinues his/her course during the year, the award will be recovered pro rata.
Final-year students
Students qualifying for the academic merit award at the end of their final year of study need to
register for a degree at the UFS within five (5) years. If a student does not register within five (5)
years from their final year of study, the academic merit award will be forfeited.
 Payment of academic merit awards
Students who qualify for an academic merit award will have the award amount credited to their
class fee account after registration at the UFS.
Undertaking
The student undertakes to complete his/her degree studies at this university. If he/she does not
complete the course, Council reserves the right to claim back the entire award or the part thereof
which may already have been paid out to him/her. However, each case will be treated on merit.
An award may be withdrawn at any time if the behaviour, diligence or progress of the student is
found to be unsatisfactory. If the examination results of a qualifying student are such that he/she
will have to repeat the studies of a full year/semester, the award will be regarded as a study loan
and it will have to be paid back. UFS Senior Undergraduate Students Academic Merit Awards
