Reasons Your NSFAS Application was Unsuccessful


Advertisement

NSFAS has revealed students' statuses regarding funding. If you have seen your status and have been rejected, here are some reasons why this may have happened. 

 

NSFAS took to social media to explain possible reasons behind applications being unsuccessful and they are as follows:

  • They have completed third-party checks on your household income and saw that your household income is above the required threshold of R350 000 or R600 000 for people with a disability.
  • You're a student who registered at a University before 2018 and because of this, your household income doesn't match that threshold of R122 000.
  • You have exceeded the number of years NSFAS is able to fund you according to the N+ rule.
    • It is important to further note that, the N+ rule is not based on the number of years that a student has been funded, but on the number of years that the student has been registered for tertiary study at any public university in South Africa. 
  • If you're a continuing student then they could have found that you failed to meet the academic requirements and your funding was therefore discontinued.

However, you do have the opportunity to submit an appeal if you feel that this decision was unfair and you have additional information explaining why you need the funding. 

 

If you want to appeal, you can read here about how to appeal.
