The National Student Financial Aid Scheme or NSFAS has confirmed that 5000 students who were funded for the 2020 academic year have been unfunded.
Recently obtained financial information from South African Revenue Services (SARS) has revealed that these students declared total household family incomes above the R350 000 threshold.
NSFAS has issued notices to all affected students to inform them of their funding status, and the process that they must follow.
Affected students have 14 days from the date of issue to appeal this decision by submitting proof of family income or change of income to NSFAS for review.
All related documents must be submitted to [email protected]
NSFAS reserves the right to make the correct funding decisions based on its financial eligibility verification processes.
