Unisa Says NSFAS Allowances Have Been Paid



Students at South Africa's largest university will soon be able to use their allowances from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme. While the institution confirmed the payment of allowances to students, reasons why some students have not been paid were also revealed.



The University of South Africa (Unisa) has revealed that allowances from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (Nsfas) have been paid to qualifying students. However, some students have not yet received their allowances. 

More than 90,000 students received their NSFAS allowances from Unisa. The university is currently working to finalise the payment of allowances to students who have not yet received their allowances.

Allowances for returning students, including the learning material allowance and the incidental allowance was disbursed from Wednesday 15 March 2023.

New students also began receiving their allowance in March 2023. Students who qualified for the incidental allowance were paid from 15 March, while students who qualified for a learning allowance but did choose the laptop option could expect their allowances from 22 March 2023.

Unisa students who have not yet received their allowances may have received late funding confirmation from NSFAS. 

The university advised students that if they do not receive their allowances by the beginning of April 2023, they must contact the institution's Division of Student Funding (DSF) 

If by the beginning of April, you have not received your allowance, enquire with the Division of Student Funding (DSF) via e-mail at [email protected]

The DSF administers bursaries and study loans to students according to donors' criteria. Funding administered by the DSF includes NSFAS funding and the Unisa Merit bursaries.
