The National Student Finacial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) provides funding to students who would like to study at a tertiary institute but do not have the funds to do so.
Thousands of students apply for NSFAS funding every year and if your application was unsuccessful, you will be allowed to appeal within 30 days of your unsuccessful application.
If you want to appeal your NSFAS application but notice that the appeal tab is not visible it means that you are not allowed to appeal your application.
Applicants are only allowed to appeal once the appeal tab is visible. This update was published on the NSFAS official account. To read more, click here.
This does not mean that you will never be able to appeal, as students are urged to continuously check the myNSFAS portal to check whether the Appeal tab becomes visible or not.
If your appeal is approved, you will still need to monitor your myNSFAS and wait for the outcome of your appeal.
In order to access your application status:
- Login on the myNSFAS student portal here.
- Enter your username and password, then click SIGN IN!
- Click on Track Funding Progress.
After following these three steps, you’ll be able to see whether you are funded or not.
