If you miss the deadlines, or make any changes after the “Cancel transcript entry” deadline, you will receive an “INC” code on your transcript for that course, signifying that you have dropped a course after the final date for removing it from your record, as opposed to a grading or AB/DPR code.

Please note that you may not add a course to your record after the first week of the term unless you are doing so to correct a registration error and your course convenor can attest that you have been attending the course from the start of the semester. Please contact law-studies@uct.ac.za with any amendments or should you notice an error on your transcript as soon as possible.

Please note: Curriculum changes may have funding implications. You are required to consult your funder, prior to the completion of this form, regarding the impact on your continued eligibility for funding. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have consulted and received approval from your sponsor regarding changes to your studies.
