Have you applied for funding from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) and have been admitted at your chosen University or College? If so, NSFAS requires you to check with the Financial Aid Office of your prospective institution to verify if your chosen qualification has been funded.
You are reminded that It is important that applicants check with the Financial Aid Office of the prospective institutions they plan to study at in 2022 to verify if their choice of qualification is funded by NSFAS.
NSFAS applications for 2022 opened on 2 November 2021 with an initial closing deadline of 7 January, which has since been extended to 21 January 2022.
Applicants have also been urged to note that if they track their funding status and find that it says ‘Awaiting Academic Results’ and ‘no’ on the funding tab, it simply means that NSFAS is still evaluating and processing their application.
So far, NSFAS has received more than 700 000 applications. NSFAS also plans to visit provinces where there has been a low uptake in student applications, such as the Northern Cape, North West as well as the Eastern Cape over the next few days.
