Can I Submit A Guardianship Affidavit For My NSFAS Application?


Certain documents are required for the NSFAS application. Are you wondering if a Guardianship Affidavit is part of these documents? Well, here is what you need to know.


The cost of Higher Education and Training can often be the obstacle that stands in the way of students obtaining Tertiary Education Qualifications from public universities and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges.

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) bursary covers tuition fees, accommodation, transport, food, textbook allowances, learning materials and registration fees for eligible students.

NSFAS stated that it does not accept affidavits for proof of legal guardianship.

The financial aid scheme explained that “we do not accept affidavits. You need to provide us with the “court-appointed legal guardianship” document or submit a Non-SASSA declaration form signed by a social worker. The form is available on our website”.

Unsuccessful students have 30 days to appeal their rejection status upon receiving the outcome of their NSFAS application.

NSFAS announced that “students wishing to appeal must upload all required supporting documentation to substantiate the reasons for the appeal. Appeals should be submitted within 30 days of having been assessed as unsuccessful".
