myNSFAS portal is the portal used by NSFAS applicants and beneficiaries to receive information about their funding. NSFAS stands for the National Student Financial Aid Scheme and NSFAS provides bursaries to South African students who can't finance their studies themselves.
First year university students have been left worrying about whether they can afford their courses this year after the funding decisions were delayed at the last minute. The student finance body has now announced that they have finalised the funding decisions for first-time applicants.
In order to provide students with improved online security, the myNSFAS portal has been upgraded. If you are studying at a TVET college, you will then need to re-register your account to track your funding progress through the myNSFAS portal. Read further to see how to do this.
