If you've submitted your NSFAS application, you would then regularly check your NSFAS application status by logging into myNSFAS.
You will then be told on what stage your application is on.
So what does it mean when it says your NSFAS application is 'Payments'?
Payments means your allowances are now being paid either through NSFAS mobile wallet system or through your institution.
Students are advised to continue to monitor the myNSFAS portal for updates.
