Do You Need To Submit An ID For NSFAS Applications?



Applications for South Africa’s government bursary scheme are open to students enrolled or planning to enrol in academic programmes at public tertiary education institutions.



The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (Nsfas) opened bursary applications in November. The bursary scheme provides funding to students from poor and working-class households.

Students studying at public universities and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) colleges are encouraged to apply for Nsfas funding.

Bursary applicants are required to provide several documents to the scheme to demonstrate their eligibility for funding. However, some documents are not needed when submitting an online Nsfas application.

Do Students Need To Submit A Copy Of An Identification Document (ID) When Applying For Nsfas?

No, students are not required to submit a copy of their ID when submitting an online Nsfas application.

The application process has been streamlined so that most people do not have to submit many documents when they apply for bursary funding.

It's important to note that applicants who benefit from the grants distributed by the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa) automatically qualify for Nsfas funding.

Nsfas uses a household income threshold as its main eligibility criteria for students. Students fro/nsfas/nsfas-login-how-login-mynsfas-student-portalm families that exceed the stipulated household income thresholds will not qualify for Nsfas funding.

The household income threshold for able-bodied students is R350,000. Students with disabilities may have a combined household income not exceeding R600,000.

All students are required to create a myNsfas account before they can submit a 2024 Nsfas application. The myNsfas portal is used by students to access and manage important information related to Nsfas.

Applications for Nsfas bursaries close on 31st January 2024.
