If you are a NSFAS funded student who has failed a course or if you're going to be a NSFAS student, you may be wondering if NSFAS will fund you if you fail? 

 

The answer is yes they will continue funding you. 

According to the NSFAS policy agreement students must pass at least 50% of their modules as well as meet the academic requirements of their institution in order to continue receiving financial aid during the course of their study period.

 

However, it is important to remember the N+1 rule. The N stands for the number of years your qualification goes for and the number (+1) refers to the number of years NSFAS will continue funding you for if you fail. The rule is based on the number of years that the student has been registered for tertiary study at any public university in South Africa.
