If you’re a TVET College student, there is a high chance that you’ve registered for your first trimester. Funding also happens to be a crucial part of the process and since NSFAS recently announced that student funding applications are open, here’s how you can submit yours.
If you’re a TVET College student or you’re about to be and you’re looking for a way to pay for your studies, you might need some help submitting your NSFAS application.
Students can submit their NSFAS applications using the methods below:
Walk-in online application platform (super user)
- Students capture their application at their college computer lab
Assistive capture application platform
- Application captured by TVET official on behalf of the student’
Student funding applicants will also be required to provide the following supporting documents when submitting their applications:
- Copy of South African birth certificate/copy of ID document/Temporary ID of student
- Copy of South African birth certificate/copy of ID document/Temporary ID of parent(s)/guardian/spouse
- Proof of income (where applicable) – student/parent(s)/guardian or spouse (not older than 3 months.
- SASSA recipients no proof of income required.
- A student recognised as a vulnerable child (e.g. Orphan) must submit a completed Vulnerable Child Declaration Form completed by the Social worker
- Students with disabilities must complete and submit the Disability Annexure A form.
The National Student Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will then collect the completed application form along with the supporting documents after the application closing deadline.
Students are reminded, however, that if they applied for NSFAS during the walk-in application period, they will not be required to fill out the NSFAS system access form.
They will merely need to send an email to [email protected] for their account to be re-activated.
