Explanations Why Your NSFAS 2023 Application Is Rejected

In todays latest NSFAS News – Here are some possible explanations for why NSFAS did not approve your 2023 application: NSFAS has a long list of conditions that must be satisfied before an application may be considered.

Students from low-income households in South Africa who enroll in a university or TVET college can apply for financial aid under the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS).

Application deadline for the 2023 school year is January 31, 2023. Application period commenced on September 28, 2022.

Thousands of students are accepted into the scholarship program each year, but NSFAS rejects applications from many more. Typically, this is due to candidates not being eligible to receive funding under the bursary program.

If NSFAS decides to reject an application, they will publish a status update detailing their reasoning.

Your application may have been declined for the following reasons:

This application has expired and is no longer being processed by NSFAS. This nsfas status is relevant in two contexts:
The applicant is committing identity theft by submitting an application in the name of a deceased person.

Some of the DHA data on their website is incorrect. Applicants in this situation have no other option except to personally visit the DHA to rectify the situation.
Application received after the NSFAS deadline

Applications submitted after the 2023 deadline will not be considered by NSFAS. NSFAS will not accept your application because the deadline has passed if you receive this message.
There is no way to dispute this ruling.

DHA Error in NSFAS
The application did not appear in NSFAS’s search of the Department of Home Affairs database.
It’s too late to file an appeal at this point.
Documentation for the NSFAS is incomplete.
Your application to NSFAS is lacking required documents.
The declaration form is the most commonly absent form.
Any applicant who does not have either biological parent must submit a declaration form.
This decision may be reviewed.
NSFAS Eligibility Status: Not Applicable; Other Bursaries Pay for It.
The applicant is already the recipient of another scholarship. If you are already receiving any form of financial help, you will not be considered for NSFAs.
There is no way to dispute this ruling.
NSFAS Eligibility: High Income (Over R350k)
A household income of R350 000 or less per year is one of the primary criterion for NSFAS for applicants who are able-bodied. They would be turned down if their annual household income was determined to be more than R350 000.
There is no way to dispute this ruling.
Those with an income over R600,000 are not required to file an NSFAS.
Having a household income of R600,000 or less per year is a primary condition for NSFAS for people with disabilities. Their annual household income must be less than R600,000 or they will be denied.
This decision may be challenged.
Academic NSFAS Standing: NC(V)/Report 191 Status Modification
Students at a TVET University should read this. TVET NSFAS financing is subject to strict guidelines that must be adhered to or the application would be denied.
There is no way to dispute this ruling.
The NSFAS Change of Academic Program Status
There is no way to dispute this ruling.
Results from the National Student Financial Aid System: Did not make the required 50% academic progress
Please note that this is intended solely for returning students. To be eligible for NSFAS assistance, returning students must meet certain academic standards.
There is no way to dispute this ruling.
The highest possible NSFAS qualification has been accomplished.
NSFAS no longer supports students pursuing degrees beyond the undergraduate level. They also won’t help those who have already completed their undergraduate degree.
This decision may be challenged.
NSFAS Evaluation: Incorrect Progression
This decision may be challenged.
The n+ rule has been exceeded, hence the NSFAS status is:
The N+1 rule that is now in effect states that a student has N years plus 1 to complete a given degree. The minimal amount of time allotted to earn a qualification is denoted by “N.” (i.e. record time). The “+1” indicates that the student may require one additional year to earn the credential (making the maximum time).
The ability to file an appeal depends on a number of factors.
Applicants who get a rejection notice have 30 days to file an appeal. Students who wish to appeal must submit an explanation and any relevant documentation.
