Students have begun receiving their learning materials allowances. Since the change from vouchers to cash, university students are encouraged to spend their allowances in ways that benefit their education. Rather than using their allowances for other unrelated expenses. This change has also affected academic industry sales and businesses. Critiques have also shown concern about the effect the change to cash would have on students' academics. 

NSFAS

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has called on all learners, who have not yet applied for 2019 financial aid, to submit their online applications before the closing date.
