The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides comprehensive bursaries to students from financially disadvantaged backgrounds.

Students must be enrolled in approved programmes at public universities and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges to be eligible for the NSFAS bursary. 

NSFAS revealed that more than one million students will be funded during the 2023 academic year. However, many of the students who applied for the NSFAS bursary in 2023 were unsuccessful. 

Unsuccessful NSFAS applicants were encouraged to submit a NSFAS appeal application if they felt the financial aid scheme was incorrect to deny their bursary application.

Students have been checking up on the progress of their appeal application on the NSFAS website. Some have noticed that their appeal application status has not changed. 

Is Your NSFAS Appeal Status Final?

NSFAS says that appeal applications submitted by students who applied for funding in 2023 are currently being reassessed. This means that when that your appeal application may change depending on the finding made by NSFAS. 

Appeals are being reassessed and some statuses are not final and subject to change. So continue to monitor the portal and if the rejected status changes then possibly you will be funded but if the rejected status remains then you are not funded. 

Students are encouraged to continue to check their NSFAS appeal status as it may change. 

If your NSFAS appeal application is successful, you will receive comprehensive funding from the financial aid scheme. 

The NSFAS bursary will cover your tuition and registration fees. You will also receive several allowances including an accommodation allowance, a living allowance and a learning material allowance.
