UNISA university distance learning testing centers in USA and Canada for Doctoral

Examination Centers (33 Authorised Testing Centers)

Please refer to the list below and select the examination center close to where you live. The code of this centre must then be given as your answer to the question on the registration form. The center name and code must also be given if, during the year, you request that your examination center be changed.

NOTE that you may be requested by the University to write your examination(s) at a center other than that of your choice. However, such cases do not occur often, and happen only when the University finds it necessary.  

Students must ensure that the examination dates do not clash with any public holidays in their particular country. If unable to write/sit for an examination due to a public holiday, the student must apply to have the examination deferred, if he or she qualifies. Such students are also subject to the rules and regulations of that country. Unisa cannot be held liable for any examinations missed as a result of the aforementioned. Students will either have to apply for a deferment in terms of Rule 17 or re-register if the missed examination had been a second examination opportunity. The university will not make special exam arrangements in such cases.
A student may change his or her examination centre after registration. An application to change must reach the university on/before the following dates, as no late applications will be accepted:
08 February for the May/June examinations
31 July for the October/November examinations
15 October for the January/February examinations
Please contact the testing center to verify your testing times.
