So you've submitted your NSFAS application in order to get a NSFAS bursary and now you're wondering how you will know if NSFAS approved your application. 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.
If you're wanting to find out yourself if your NSFAS online application was accepted, you can check your NSFAS application status on myNSFAS. Here's how:
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".
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.
