Track Your NSFAS Application Status and Progress

When you apply for NSFAS, keeping an eye on your application status is crucial. This status is like a progress report for your application, letting you know if you’re in the clear or if there’s room for improvement.

Tracking your NSFAS application progress is simple and can be done through your myNSFAS account.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it.

NSFAS Application Status and Progress

1. Log In to Your myNSFAS Account

The first step is to log in to your myNSFAS account through the student portal. You can find the portal here.

Make sure to use your username and password to sign in. If you don’t have an account yet, you’ll need to register or re-register.

2. Click on “Track Funding Progress”

Once you’re logged in, navigate to the “Track Funding Progress” option; here is where you’ll find detailed updates on your NSFAS application status.

Understanding NSFAS Statuses

The NSFAS status is a series of updates that guide you through the approval process. Each status signifies a different stage in the journey from application submission to complete approval. Let’s break down what each status means:

1. Application Submitted:

Your application has been successfully loaded onto the NSFAS system.

2. Filtering:

The system checks if you’re a returning student and examines your previous qualifications.

3. Validation:

NSFAS performs third-party checks with SASSA and the Department of Home Affairs.

4. Evaluation:

Verification of all the documents you submitted during your application.

5. Funding Eligibility:

NSFAS verifies your household financial status as declared in your application.

6. Awaiting Academic Results/Admission:

NSFAS checks your academic results and your institution’s admission status to ensure you meet the funding requirements. This step might take some time as NSFAS awaits information from your chosen institution.

7. Awaiting Registration:

NSFAS receives data from your institution to create a bursary agreement. Another step that requires patience is that NSFAS waits for information from your chosen institution.

8. Signing of Agreement:

At this stage, you need to sign your bursary agreement so that NSFAS can disburse your allowances.

9. Payments:

Your allowances are now being paid, either through the NSFAS mobile wallet system or directly to your institution. Keep an eye on the myNSFAS portal for updates.
