NSFAS 2024: How to Apply Online And Get Approved

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is now encouraging youngsters to apply for the academic year ahead.

The registration period opened earlier this month.

  2. You will be required to provide the following information when registering an account: username, password, ID number, cellphone number and email address
  3. You can then login using your selected username and password
  4. Complete the application form by clicking the “apply” button
  5. When you have filled in all the required information (do not leave any fields blank), you can upload electronic copies of your supporting documents (as listed below). Once all your documents have been uploaded, click the “submit” button to receive your reference number

METHOD 2: At your closest NYDA Centre

  1. Visit a NYDA centre/ office closest to you
  2. A NYDA centre worker will explain the application process and provide you with an application form to complete
  3. Complete the application form in CAPITAL letters with a black pen and sign it in the allocated spots
  4. Hand in your application form and supporting documents (as listed below). Ensure that your supporting documents are certified on the front of the page and not be older than 3 months.

Students with disabilities and students who are beneficiaries of social grants automatically qualify for NSFAS funding.

Students wanting to study towards postgraduate qualifications do not qualify for NSFAS funding – you are encouraged to seek funding from the National Skill Fund and the National Research Foundation.


NSFAS has employed 200 NFAS unemployed graduates to support high learners throughout the country with the application process. These graduates will visit high schools and rural communities with no computer or internet access to assist students.
