National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) applications for 2018 opens on the 1st August 2017.


Students who wish to apply for financial aid for 2018 need to make an online application for funding by logging onto the NSFAS website – 


In view of the above, Student Funding has not printed any financial aid applications for 2018. 


Students who have received NSFAS loans in 2017 will be automatically migrated to the NSFAS 2018 application process and DO NOT need to submit financial aid applications again for 2018.


The following categories of students ARE required to complete the NSFAS application process online if they wish to be considered for NSFAS loans in 2018:


§  All first time applicants for NSFAS funding  

§  All students who received bursaries in 2017

§  All students who were not NSFAS loan recipients in 2017

§  Students who received “Allowances Only” assistance in 2017.


Before commencing your NSFAS online funding application on the NSFAS website – – you must scan a copy of your ID document as you will need to upload it as an attachment.  NSFAS will advise students of any additional supporting documents that need to be attached with the application.


NSFAS Financial Aid Applications open 01 August 2017 and close 30 November 2017.  Students are advised to apply early and not wait until November as no late applications will be accepted by NSFAS.


Best wishes
