Why You Should Check Your NSFAS Application Status



Thousands of students applied for NSFAS funding in 2024 but do not know whether or not they will be funded. NSFAS has called on these individuals to check their application statuses. 



The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is set to fund over one million students for the 2024 academic year, with hundreds of thousands of students seeking comprehensive funding for the first time. The government bursary scheme received nearly 1.9 million funding applications during the 2024 NSFAS application period.

NSFAS funding encompasses tuition and registration fees as well as various allowances to cover additional costs associated with pursuing a tertiary education qualification. Whether applying for an NSFAS bursary or a missing middle student loan, applicants must complete an NSFAS login to check their funding status and ascertain approval.

NSFAS urges all 2024 applicants to verify their status after the funding list update, which determines approval for NSFAS funding. It's imperative to emphasise that provisionally funded students, though meeting all eligibility criteria, will only access NSFAS funding and allowances upon confirmation of their registration by their respective university or Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) college.

NSFAS Appeals Now Open

The 2024 NSFAS appeals application period is now open, offering thousands of rejected applicants the opportunity to appeal. Upon rejection, applicants have 30 days to submit a NSFAS appeal, prompting a re-evaluation of their application, potentially changing a rejection to an approval.

How to Submit a NSFAS Appeal

  1. Visit the myNSFAS website.
  2. Log into your myNSFAS account.
  3. Select the 'Track Funding Progress' option.
  4. Review the application progress tabs.
  5. If your application status indicates an unsuccessful message, proceed to the 'Submit Appeal Tab'.
  6. On the 'Application Appeal' page, review the reason for your unsuccessful application status.
  7. Choose the appeal reason and upload certified supporting documents.
  8. Click 'Submit Appeal'.

It's crucial for applicants to check their NSFAS status promptly, as they have only 30 days to submit an appeal. Delaying beyond this period could result in forfeiting the opportunity to appeal.
