Students who applied for a bursary at the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will know the outcome of their NSFAS 2020 application by 6 January 2020. This comes after a lengthy 3-month application process where close to 500 000 students applied to study under a NSFAS bursary at either a public university or a TVET college.
Kagisho Mamabolo, NSFAS spokesperson, stated that students who’ve applied for a NSFAS bursary can check and track their funding status online via the myNSFAS portal. Additionally, NSFAS will notify students who submitted incomplete applications (missing supporting documents, etc) to upload the documents via the myNSFAS portal.
Students are urged to not change their contact details (cellphone number and email address) as they are the primary contact channels to communicate to students the result of their application.
It’s widely known that there are people who are out to obtain personal information and money for their own personal gain – at the result of unaware and uninformed students. Students who applied for NSFAS will equally have to be cautious and vigilant when it comes to misinformation and scams about any NSFAS-related news.
From 13 December 2019 to 6 January 2020, the NSFAS Contact Centre will close down for the festive season. According to Mr Mamabolo, the shutting down of NSFAS services enables the institution to process, confirm, and conclude all funding services.
