What A ‘Validation’ NSFAS Application Status Means
As soon as students submit their applications, they are able to view their application status. They may see that they are on the ‘Validation’ step, here is what it means.
NSFAS applications are submitted in thousands which means that there are thousands of individuals who might be wondering what their NSFAS application status means.
Should you be seeing a ‘Validation” NSFAS status, this means that NSFAS is conducting third party verifications with the Department of Home Affairs and the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa).
During this stage, NSFAS checks to see if the applicant meets the bursary’s eligibility requirements, based on the information provided by the applicant.
Unfortunately, there is no specific period of time that determines when NSFAS will process the application. Therefore, students are advised to continuously check their application status.
