NSFAS Application 2017 Online 

  •  NSFAS applications for 2017 will open on the 1st of August 2016 (closing date is the 30th of November 2016). Please  note that there will be two application cycles:
    • 1st Cycle: 1st of August to the 30th November 2016: Students entering university for the first time in 2017 including 2016 grade 12 learners can apply;
    • 2nd Cycle: 1st of September to the 30th November 2016: All university students who were not funded by NSFAS in 2016 can apply.
  • NSFAS applications for 2017 are strictly online at my.nsfas.org.za
  • Students who were not funded in 2016 must apply online and upload the applicable documentation, regardless of any previous applications.
  •  Students must register on the NSFAS website to confirm if they need to apply for 2017 or not. This can be done from the  1st of September 2016 at my.nsfas.org.za
  • Funding for 2017 will still be dependent on academic results. Not having to apply for 2017 because you were funded in 2016 does not guarantee funding for 2017.
  • Additional facilities will be provided to assist students with online applications for those without access.
  • Facilities will be available on APB from the 1st of August 2016.
  • Prospective students that need to make use of the facilities are requested to ensure that they bring all the necessary documentation to apply. Access to the campus will only be granted on presentation of a valid ID.
  • Parents / guardians that accompany prospective students will also be requested to present a valid ID to get access to the campus.
  • All applicants must have a cell phone on hand in order to receive the ONE TIME PIN.
