If you have a refund due, you are probably wondering how you can claim back your money. 

 

When students are accepted for funding, students sign a legal contract that has a focus on the loan. NSFAS also works with organisations such as SARS to find out the NSFAS beneficiaries who are employed and earning more than R30 000 per year. 

 

The government has not said anything to NSFAS about writing off any outstanding loans that need a repayment. When NSFAS changed the funding from loans to bursaries, the understanding was that the change was effective from the academic year of 2018. This means that funding given to students before 2018, still need to be paid back.

These questions and answers mostly apply to students who applied for NSFAS funding before December of 2017. This means a student applied for funding when NSFAS offered loans before the move to free education, after which NSFAS offered bursaries which don't need to be paid back. 

 

How much time do students have to pay back the NSFAS loan?
