NSFAS clarifies application process

Published on

NSFAS took to social media to clarify the application process for students seeking financial assistance, further highlighting the need to meet the academic criteria for funding.

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) took to Twitter on Monday, 14 September 2020, to clarify the application process for those seeking financial assistance. NSFAS advised applying through the use of a cellphone with a valid South African number and an email address. For applicants without a cellphone, NSFAS suggested, “You may use the cellphone number of a trusted guardian or relative, but it is best to have your own cellphone number.”

NSFAS then went on to stipulate the conditions of an approved application, stating, “The funding covers you until you complete your qualification, provided you continue to meet the academic criteria. You just need to focus on studying and passing your modules to secure your continued funding.” An alternative to using a cellphone is applying online.
