If you've applied for funding from NSFAS, you've probably asked yourself: how will I know if NSFAS approved my application and will be funding my studies? Well, here's how.'

NSFAS has said:

Application results will be communicated to all applicants once NSFAS received confirmation from the institution that an academic offer has been made to you.

NSFAS will inform you of their decision before the start of the academic year and this will be done through SMS, email as well as your myNSFAS account.

Once you are approved for NSFAS funding, the funding covers you until you finish your qualification. This does however depend on whether you continue to meet the academic criteria. You just need to focus on studying and passing your modules to secure your continued funding.

It's important to remember that you need to apply or be studying at a public university or TVET college to qualify for financial assistance. Students who intend to study at private institutions will not be assisted by NSFAS.

NSFAS says, "NSFAS has helped millions of South Africans access higher education and unlock their potential, and you can be part of the millions too. Apply for NSFAS funding and let us take care of all your financial stress as you focus on your studies like your peers."

If you have not yet received any information, do not panic. All you have to do is keep an eye on your application status. 

In order to access your application status:

  • Login on the myNSFAS student portal through this link: https://bit.ly/2SWFVh3
  • Enter your username and password, then click SIGN IN!
  • Click on Track Funding Progress.
  • Once you have followed these three easy steps, you will be able to see whether you are funded or not. It may take some time for your application to be successful so please be patient. 

Applications for funding through NSFAS closes on 30 November.

NSFAS offers funding to University students as well as TVET College students in the form of a bursary. Getting funded by NSFAS does not only cover your tuition fees but will have you receive funding for other needs you have as a student.
