Once students apply for the NSFAS bursary, they may track their application on their myNSFAS account. Some may currently be on the ‘Evaluation’ stage, here is what it means.

So you've submitted your NSFAS application and now you're wondering at what step it is on. It might be at the 'evaluation' stage but what does this mean?

When students reach the ‘Evaluation’ stage of the application, it means that the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is verifying the student’s documents that were submitted with the application.

The application portal has been "enhanced" to allow first-time applicants who are social grant recipients to ”receive a real-time response" after submitting their application.

NSFAS advises prospective students to constantly check their application status, especially since the 2022 academic year is commencing soon.

Students are reminded that NSFAS does not have a timeframe when it comes to updating the student’s application status.
