(the same PIN used at the ATM). For further details about this payment facility,

Parents or guardians of students may also make arrangements with their banks
to make payments through monthly debit orders. In this process the University’s
bank account is credited with the agreed upon amount on a monthly basis.
2.3 Letters of authority and bursaries
If a sponsor has undertaken to pay a student’s study fees, the sponsor must
provide an original official letter, on a letterhead, signed by the appropriate
authorized person on behalf of the sponsor. In order to be registered, the student
must present this letter at the University on the day of registration. The letter
must indicate the following:
o full names
o identification number
o student number
o the academic cycle and year for which a student is registering
o the amount of study fees that the sponsor commits to pay on behalf of
In the event that a sponsor does not pay, the student will be held liable for the
fees and penalties. Payments (installments) by sponsors should include a
detailed list of the distribution of the total payment.
2.4 Direct deposits and Internet payments
A student can make a deposit at any branch of ABSA Bank (refer to 1.3 above)
on condition that the minimum requirements are met.
If a student transfers funds directly (electronically) via a bank ATM or whatever
method, it is the student’s responsibility to confirm/verify the student number
and University’s bank particulars.
If sponsors make bulk payments for various students via the Internet or
electronic transfer, the following information must be entered for each individual
o student name
o amount payable
o student number
Without this information the individual student’s account cannot be credited, and
this creates various practical problems, such as non-entrance to facilities and
problems relating to the examinations, etc.
A list of these students will be kept by the Student Debtors division, which should
be contacted to clear these credits to students’ accounts.
