8. How do I make changes to the timetable I have set up?
You only have one personal timetable, so any changes you make to your timetable in “My Timetable” will reflect immediately. Changes you have made can be viewed before they are permanently applied by selecting one of the options in the “Preview Timetable” window, i.e. “COMBINED”/”NEW”/”EXISTING”. You can then “Save” the version you want to accept.

9. When will the timetables be available?
Timetables for the coming academic year will be available on My Timetable in mid-January.   The venues can still change, but this will be automatically updated in the personalised timetable you have created.
Note: Finalisation of tutorial groups, etc. may take place after mid-January.  The relevant department will let you know whether you are assigned to a specific group or whether you can select any of the groups found in the My Timetable application.

12. Why am I not receiving email notifications of changes to my timetable?
Click on the “Profile” icon on the left-hand side bar to check if your account has been set up to receive notifications.

Also confirm that the email address referenced is the address that you are expecting.

13. What does an email from noreply@sun.ac.za mean?
You will receive an email when changes are made to an activity on your personalised timetable in My Timetable. To confirm the change, check your timetable on My Timetable for full details, as this will always be up to date with respect to changes.
Note: Departments will also inform you of last-minute changes. These changes can sometimes occur too close to the start date of the activity. In these cases, the email notification should be considered as the definitive source of information.
