NSFAS 2020 Application Statuses Sees Delays

NSFAS has addressed students having issues viewing their application statuses for 2020. 

Students who have applied or appealed at NSFAS might be experiencing delays in viewing their application statuses.

NSFAS posted a statement acknowledging this issue which read, "NSFAS is aware that some of the students’ 2020 application statuses on the myNSFAS portal have not shown any progress for months."

The financial aid scheme has said that one of the reasons that this is happening is due to the delay that exists in them receiving registration information from Universities and Colleges. To this, NSFAS says, "NSFAS is working with institutions, through a dedicated team, to ensure they provide all necessary information needed for NSFAS to provide students with their application outcomes."

One student has suggested that a way to combat this could be, "NSFAS also communicate with students through emails to ensure that they go to their institutions and enquire or submit their documents again if necessary". 

As for sending requests and queries to NSFAS, students are urged to not send multiple requests as it causes a backlog of duplicate requests which leads to there being a delay in responses to other students’ request.
