Ways To Repay Your NSFAS Loans


Advertisement

Should you have been funded by NSFAS when it was in the form of a loan scheme and you're now looking to repay your loan, here are the ways in which you can do so. NSFAS provides funding for higher education studies to South African students.

All students who received a NSFAS loan before the president’s announcement of free education in December 2017 need to repay the loaned amount as per the signed loan agreement form. Should you have started funding with NSFAS in 2018 and thereafter, you have received a bursary and there's no need for you to pay NSFAS back.

You will only start repaying your loan once you have a salary of  R30 000 or more per year. No need to worry as the repayments are worked out at a rate that will not place a great burden on you and is based on your salary.

40% of a general loan is converted into a bursary if you pass all of the courses you were registered for in that year. 

If you applied at your institution's Financial Aid Office to be on the NSFAS Final-Year Programme, you will have your final-year loans converted into a 100% bursary if you pass all of your final-year courses and qualify to graduate.

Ways To Pay
