If you have had your NSFAS Application rejected by the bursary, don’t panic. You still have an opportunity to submit an appeal in order to get your NSFAS funding. You can submit your NSFAS appeal by logging to the MyNSFAS account or portal. Interested in challenging a rejected NSFAS application and want to know when the 2022 NSFAS appeal closing date ends? Well, here’s what you need to know.
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) says it has not set an appeal deadline for 2022. However, remember that
students have 30 days to appeal after receiving notification that their application has been rejected by the organization.
Students should be patient as there is no time limit for processing NSFAS appeals.
NSFAS is now reviewing the appeal and students are asked to monitor their MyNSFAS portal for status updates.
How To Check Your NSFAS Appeal
- Log into your myNSFAS account on www.nsfas.org.za
- Click the ‘Track Funding Progress’ option
- Check the application progress tabs
- You will be able to track the progress of your appeal via your MyNSFAS account
After filing an NSFAS objection, you may find that your NSFAS status is Active Objection. This means that the funding has been pre-approved and the funding is pending final approval.
The status of students who have received a grant will be reflected as
‘Grant Eligible for Enrollment’, and the status of students who have been denied a grant will be displayed as ‘Application Failed’.
NSFAS will award scholarships to individuals planning or applying to study at any of her 26 public universities or 50 her TVET colleges in South Africa.
