*This question is specific to OUA students only*

Unit Coordinators need several weeks to mark exam papers and determine final grades, so it is not possible to provide final grades less than 4 weeks after the exam. In special circumstances, such as immigration, university admission or entry into a professional Australian accounting body, you can request the early release of your final grade. All requests for early release of final grades must be made by emailing ouainfo@unisa.edu.au and must include the following supporting documentation as an attachment:

  • If you are required to complete specific units to meet the requirements of either the Certified Practicing Accountants (CPA) Australia or the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia (ICAA), a letter from the CPA or the ICAA stating the date your final grade is required
  • For university admission, a letter or other documentation from the university or tertiary admission centre stating when they need to be notified of your final grade in order to process your application for admission
  • For immigration purposes, a letter from Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs (DIMIA) indicating the date when your migration application needs to be lodged
  • Requests for early release of final grades must be submitted by Friday of week 12. Your request will then be forwarded to the Unit Coordinator for a decision.
