Reasons Your NSFAS Application Was Unsuccessful
NSFAS has started revealing to students whether their application to be funded was successful or not. If yours was unsuccessful, here are the reasons why that decision was made.
Now that NSFAS applicants have started hearing whether their application was successful or not, more insight has been given as to why applications would be unsuccessful.
NSFAS took to social media to explain possible reasons behind an applications being unsuccessful and they are as follows:
- They have completed third party checks on your household income and saw that your household income is above the required threshold of R350 000 or R600 000 for people with a disability.
- You're a student who registered at a University before 2018 and because of this, your household income doesn't match that threshold of R122 000.
- You have exceeded the number of years NSFAS is able to fund you according to the N+ rule.
- It is important to further note that, the N+ rule is not based on the number of years that a student has been funded, but on the number of years that the student has been registered for tertiary study at any public university in South Africa.
- If you're a continuing student then they could have found that you failed to meet the academic requirements and your funding was therefore discontinued.
However, you do have the opportunity to submit an appeal if you feel that this decision was unfair and you have additional information explaining why you need the funding.
Appeals have not yet open but we will keep you updated as soon as they do.
