Nsfas Allowance Payments For Unisa Students To Begin This Week


If you are an NSFAS-funded Unisa student who has been waiting for an update on your allowance payment, the bursary scheme has announced that it will bring some much-needed relief.  



In a recent announcement made by Unisa on Monday, the distance learning institution confirmed that the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has begun the process of disbursing allowances for qualifying returning students.

According to the announcement, allowances for returning students, including learning materials and incidental allowances, will be disbursed starting from Wednesday, this week.

Furthermore, new students who qualify for incidental allowance disbursement will also receive their payments on the same day.

“NSFAS confirmed the payment of allowances to all qualifying students and the process of disbursing allowances has now commenced. Allowances for the returning students including learning material and incidental allowances will be disbursed from Wednesday 15 March 2023.”

For students who did not choose the laptop option, learning material allowances will be disbursed from Wednesday 22 March 2023. It is important to note that all payments will be processed through NSFAS, and students are advised to ensure that their personal details, including banking information, are up to date to avoid any delays in receiving their allowances.

This news will come as a relief to many students who have been eagerly anticipating the disbursement of their allowances. The timely payment of these allowances will enable students to continue their studies without the burden of financial stress and will help them to stay focused on achieving their academic goals.

Unisa has also advised all students who have not yet applied for NSFAS funding to do so before the deadline to avoid missing out on any financial support they may be eligible for.

Overall, the announcement of NSFAS allowance payments for funded students at Unisa is a significant step towards ensuring that students, who have been waiting to receive their allowances have access to the financial resources they need to proceed with their academic pursuits.
