How To Submit Your NSFAS Documents
When submitting your NSFAS application, you are required to attach certain documents to it in order for your application to be processed. Here is how you can submit your documents.
Once you have completed the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) bursary application, you will be required to submit a few documents which will verify the information you have stated in your application.
The myNSFAS portal will only request documents based on the information that you provided in your application.
According to NSFAS, once an application has been submitted, students are not allowed to submit more documents. In the event that they forget to submit a document, they will need to wait until the evaluation team requests a document to be submitted.
Here are the documents that NSFAS requires students to submit with their online application:
- Copy of your ID
- Must have consent from the parent(s), guardian or spouse to submit their personal information for validation and verification. Once you accept the application terms and conditions, you confirm that you have received consent from all relevant parties.
If the applicant is dependent on their parents/guardian/spouse, they must provide:
- ID copies of parent(s), guardian or spouse
- Proof of income (payslip/UIF letter/appointment letter/recruitment letter) of parent(s), guardian or spouse where applicable
Persons with a disability need to submit:
- A completed Disability Annexure A (if their information is not pre-populated on the online application form)
