NSFAS Application Process

2024 NSFAS Application Dates

NSFAS would like to advise all universities and TVET colleges that applications for 2024 student funding have opened on 21 November 2023 and will close on 31 January 2024. This application season will also cover TVET college students’ application for funding as there will not be a separate walk-in application period in January 2024.

2024 NSFAS Applications Process

The applications will be opened online with the applicant having to go onto the NSFAS website and create a profile on the student portal and thereafter proceed to complete their application. If an applicant has only created their student profile and has not gone on to finish and submit the application, they have not completed the application process. (very crucial)
