NSFAS Is Open, Says Minister Nzimande

Thursday, January 23, 2020 - 19:55Author: Alan Hammond

Minister responsible for Higher Education and Training, Dr Blade Nzimande has said that NSFAS is not closed to new applicants who are accepted to universities this year.

 

Article Category: Bursaries 2020

While the main application period for NSFAS funding for the 2020 academic year closed at the end of November 2019, applicants for TVET Colleges in 2020 have had no problems applying for NSFAS funding. Now Minister Blade Nzimande has said that qualifying university students can also apply for NSFAS funding.

"I have received requests from a number of young people to re-open the NSFAS applications to allow them to access institutions of higher education and training.

I wish to indicate that the NSFAS process is not closed to those students who will be accepted at universities and colleges who might not have applied for NSFAS assistance. As soon as universities and colleges bring these to our attention, these students will benefit from NSFAS if they qualify. There is already a process in place to manage this between institutions and NSFAS to ensure that late applicants that have been accepted for registered places can access funding if they qualify".

The demand to reopen NSFAS applications was one of 15 demands made by the SRCs organisation, SAUS. 

The Minister was speaking at a press conference on Thursday 23rd January 2020 at the Department of Science and Innovation, CSIR, Brummeria, Pretoria.

The Minister's Full Statement Is On The Department's Website

NSFAS Funding for TVET Students in 2020

Thursday, January 23, 2020 - 19:35Author: Alan Hammond

Funding arrangements for TVET College students on NSFAS funding have been announced.

Article Category: Bursaries 2020

Since 2018 TVET students with a joint family income of R350 000 are also financially eligible for bursary funding. 95% of poor and disadvantaged students who register at TVET colleges are found to be eligible for NSFAS funding.

All qualifying students will receive two types of allowances to help them succeed in their studies, namely, accommodation and personal care, or travel and personal care.

Students who stay in college accommodation receive thirty-three thousand (R33 000) per annum, whilst those in private accommodation are funded in three categories, urban twenty five thousand two hundred (R25 200); peri-urban eighteen thousand nine hundred (R18 900) and rural fifteen thousand seven hundred and fifty (R15 750).

Travel allowances are provided at seven thousand three hundred and fifty (R7 350) per annum and the personal care allowance two thousand nine hundred (R2 900) per annum.

It is very important that TVET students using private accommodation ensure that, before they sign contractual agreements with landlords, they satisfy themselves with the quality of the physical accommodation as well as any services that they will be paying for.

It must be noted that despite the difficult fiscal situation, and the many social demands requiring support, government has been able to maintain the levels of support to students originally committed for 2018 onwards.

I think you will agree with me that the subsidized funding being provided through the DHET bursary scheme is generous. I urge students to make the best possible use of the support being provided to focus on their studies, and to access all other forms of academic and other support available at our public institutions.

To those who are fortunate enough to access universities and TVET colleges, we want you to succeed and graduate and committed to making sure that this funding is able to assist you to do this.

Students on the new bursary scheme are required to sign agreements with NSFAS which also signal their commitment to and understanding of the requirements of the scheme.

They receive a maximum of the minimum qualification time plus one year of funding on the fully-subsidised scheme.

TVET NSFAS APPLICATIONS 

In relation to the TVET sector, a total of 90 157 online applications were received by NSFAS from TVET college students as at 15 December 2019.

For the remainder, the 2020 walk-in application process commenced on 9 January 2020 and will close on 31 January.

The aim is to minimize and finally eliminate walk-ins over the next 3 years.

In addressing the capacity constraints to capture bursary applications in colleges, NSFAS has contracted the services of Metrofile. In this arrangement Metrofile will capture the forms completed by students and verified by the college, and will be forward to NSFAS.

Based on this new process for capturing student application forms NSFAS will provide a funding decision within 10 working days upon receiving complete and valid new applications.

Despite the achievement of the relative stability within NSFAS, pressing challenges remain. The administrative capacity of TVET colleges, coupled with the neglect of this sector within NSFAS, compelled the introduction of a cellphone activated NSFAS Wallet.

Initially this measure was aimed at only 6 colleges but quickly ballooned to 26 colleges, significantly increasing costs to NSFAS. Sufficient progress had been achieved to move the entire TVET student allowances, to direct payments into bank accounts by the commencement of the 2020 academic year.

This funding has been ring-fenced, and is over and above the funding for the planned enrolments into the various programmes. Furthermore, colleges will claim the 20% tuition fees and allowances from NSFAS for these students.

Cash Payments To NSFAS Students Will Continue

Thursday, January 23, 2020 - 19:12Author: Alan Hammond

Minister Blade Nzimande has announced how much will be paid out in allowances to NSFAS funded students this year - and also answered the question on whether applications for NSFAS funding would be opened again. 

This year over 375 000 students in universities benefited from the NSFAS scheme and of those over 217 000 are on the new fully subsidised funding and won't have to pay back their bursaries.

Article Category: Bursaries 2020

NSFAS-funded students now know how much they will be receiving for their living allowances, learning material allowances and also 'incidental allowance'.

All NSFAS students receive the benefit of full payment of their academic fees. This amoung is paid to their university or TVET College.

For this year NSFAS will continue the practice of paying the 'book allowance', or learning materials allowance as it is more accurately known, in cash to students.  This will be an amount of  R5 200 per student for the year. This amount is paid in cash to students to allow for student choice in determining their needs;

Students in university owned and managed catering residences receive support for the full residence cost including catering (this amount is paid directly to the institution), as well as the incidental allowance; In 2020 the incidental allowance will be R290 per month for the ten months of the academic year.

For other students, the incidental allowance is incorporated into the living allowance; Students in university owned and managed self-catering residences receive support for the full residence cost (paid directly to the institution) and receive the living allowance, which is R1500 per month for the ten months of the academic year;

Students living in accredited off-campus accommodation, that is, the accommodation that has been formally accredited by the institution, receive the cost of accommodation plus the living allowance. It is assumed that transport is included in the cost of accommodation, as is the practice in most institutions. A lease agreement is a necessary pre-condition for receiving this funding;   

Students living in non-accredited accommodation, which could include a family home, the home of a relative or any other form of accommodation that is not formally accredited, receive the living allowance (R1500) and a transport allowance (R750 per month in 2020). These students can make their own decisions about how to best utilise the allowances.

Distance university students qualify for tuition fees and the learning materials allowance only. However, distance students studying an equivalent full-time course load of a contact student also qualify for the incidental allowance. This requires a student to be registered for a minimum of ten courses in one academic year.

Student Loans: Everything You Need To Know About Repayments

Thursday, January 23, 2020 - 10:21

What is a Student Loan? A student loan is borrowed money that is repaid over the time once a student has completed their studies and starts a job. In addition to repaying the amount loaned, most loans also require an additional fee called interest. A student loan is used to pay for college or university costs.

Article Category: Finance

Repaying a student loan can often times put you on the back foot before you’ve even stepped through the door of your first job.

How do I make repayments?

Once you are ready to start paying off your loan, you’ll be responsible for sending out monthly payments to the company or institute that  you have taken out a load with.

You should have received all the banking details of the loan servicer upon approval, however if you don’t know where to send a payment, check with your college or universities financial aid office.  You can then contact your loan servicers directly.

Tips to prepare for student loan payments:

  • Use the grace period to research student loan repayment options and decide which option you would like to use
  • Never miss one payment or this will set everything back
  • Create a budget 
  • Prioritize paying off student loans
  • Communicate with your loan servicer
  • Set up automatic debit payments so that the hassle is out of your hands every month
  • Avoid student loan default at all cost
  • Give yourself a target to shoot for and set a date by when you would like to be finished with the loan

When must I begin repaying my student loans?

Most student loans have a few months grace period, which means you won’t have to start making payments until after you graduate and find a job. The grace period is meant to give you a chance to find a job and begin earning an income so enable you to pay off the loan made.
