The National Student Financial Aids Scheme (NSFAS) has had the application appeals process open since 3 February 2022 and those who have not yet submitted their appeal have limited time left to do so.

NSFAS applicants are required to submit their appeal within 30 days after their application has been declined. The myNSFAS portal now requires applicants to choose between four specific reasons for submitting their appeal, namely: 

1. Change of Income  OR

2. I am a vulnerable child   OR

3. I am independent of my biological parents  OR

4. Cost of education is restricted to one parent

Depending on which one the applicant chooses, they will then be required to download, complete, upload and submit the relevant official required supporting documents as proof.

Additionally, NSFAS has also stated that only applicants who have been declined for the reasons listed below will be able to access the appeal functionality on myNSFAS,

  • Financial Ineligibility, 
  • Academic Eligibility Criteria (pass/fail) 
  • N+ rule (if they are still within N+2)

New applicants who have provided insufficient documents or information can also appeal.
