NSFAS Applicants Urged To Submit Documents

NSFAS applicants for 2021 have been urged to submit their outstanding documents to complete their applications. 

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has asked applicants to submit their outstanding documents in order for their applications to be complete. 

NSFAS will have communicated this to applicants via SMS and email. 

To upload missing/outstanding documents for your 2021 application, follow these steps:

  • Sign into your myNSFAS account
  • Upload the requested missing documents
  • Press submit

NSFAS says they are unable to process your application if it has missing/outstanding supporting documents. 

If you have been asked to fill out and submit a consent form, click here for how to gain access to it.  

The process of submitting oustanding documents is complete once all documents are uploaded and you receive notification that says 'Outstanding application documents submitted successfully uploaded'.

If you did upload the documents but there was a problem the most common issue is that the documents are not clear.  If you have a problem taking photos with your cellphone you can go to a NSFAS or a NYDA office and they will assist you. If there is not a NSFAS or NYDA office near you, and you have applied to a college or varsity then ask their fees office to assist you.

Once you've applied and you want 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. 

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.
