Get ahead of the crowd by registering with the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) today.
NSFAS applications for the 2021 academic year are open. This gives eligible students the opportunity to access free government funding.
Those who meet the criteria to receive financial aid can create an account and register on the NSFAS website immediately.
If you are planning to apply online go to My NSFAS to create your personal account today.
If you already have an account with NSFAS all you need to do is login to use your profile when the application window opens.
Apply in Person
If you do not have internet access or prefer to submit your application in person you can do so at your nearest NYDA Centre.
The NYDA will help you apply online or manually. Alternatively you can complete the application at home and drop it at your local NYDA office.
If you choose to visit an NYDA branch you will have access to trained staff who can help you fill in the application forms and take you through the process.
