We are experiencing difficulty with this form. When you "submit" it should thank you and tell you that a copy will be mailed back to you.

For some reason yet to be determined, for some users the screen just goes blank. If this happens to you, press the BACK button, and then mark the whole document with CONTROL A and import it into an MS-Word document. Save this file, and email it as an attachment to your dean (preferably) or to academicadmin (at) ru.ac.za. The inconvenience is regretted, and we are working on the problem, which seems to be sporadic.
