Funding for students will only officially start once they’ve been registered and NSFAS has received registration information.
Higher Education Minister, Blade Nzimande, said all students who are already funded by the NSFAS and have met their study and eligibility criteria will continue to be funded this year.
Applicants are advised to take note of the following:
- Keep your username and password safe;
- Contact NSFAS should a cellphone number change or if it has been lost;
- Do not share your NSFAS Wallet details;
- Report any suspicious communication that requests you to share your personal information or passwords;
- Do not leave your personal information exposed, and make sure you log out of your myNSFAS account when you are not using it; and
- Note that your status will be communicated directly to you officially only by NSFAS (be aware of fake news).
Students are advised to regularly track their funding statuses on the myNSFAS portal. The portal will assist students to upload any pending documents where required.
