What A ‘Funding Eligibility ‘ NSFAS Application Status Means
Once you have submitted your NSFAS application, you may have tracked your application status via your myNSFAS portal. Well, if you received a ‘Funding Eligibility’ status, here is what it means.
The ‘Funding Eligibility’ status means that the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is verifying the applicant’s household financial status which is declared on the application.
Unfortunately, there is no time frame when it comes to when the NSFAS application status changes and how long it will take for the application to be processed, so applicants are requested to be patient.
However, students are encouraged to continue to monitor their application status on the myNSFAS portal.
