The University of South Africa operates the myUNISA student portal to allow students to submit classwork electronically if the course instructor elects to use the system. As an open distance learning institute, UNISA attempts to make enrollment for students easier regardless of geographic location in the country with this portal. The university has a number of regional centers, regional libraries and agreements with partner libraries in place throughout the country. Each of these locations has self-help terminals set up to let students submit classwork electronically via myUNISA.
The university enrolls 400,000 students, one-third of all post-secondary students in South Africa, as of 2015. It was founded in 1873 as the University of the Cape of Good Hope. The distance learning element was added in 1946 to provide students, regardless of creed, color or race, access to education.
