UNISA News Today : Unisa Clarifies NSFAS System Error
In todays latest #Unisa News – With the academic year in full swing, it’s important to have funding. However, some students have been left in the dark as they are anxiously awaiting to receive a positive response from #NSFAS.
The University of South Africa has noted a possible error in some of the 2022 NSFAS funding outcomes of students, as some students being are declined due to “not meeting the academic criteria”.
In the Unisa communique for #myNSFAS portal users, the university confirmed:
NSFAS has acknowledged and noted the error and is working hard to resolve it as soon as possible. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and confusion this has caused. UNISA DSF Management.
This comes at a critical and stressful time for students as registrations in most institutions of higher learning have started.
Unisa has urged first-time NSFAS applicants to ensure that they are temporarily registered during the Unisa registration period while waiting for their NSFAS funding confirmation.
If happens that your NSFAS application has been declined or delayed by the close of the registration period, you will be expected to find alternative funding before your registration will be activated.
If you pay the minimum registration amount to activate your registration, you will be refunded once NSFAS has confirmed the successful processing of registration data to the university.
If your NSFAS #application is provisionally approved, you do not need to pay the minimum registration fee.
Your registration will be automatically be activated based on the NSFAS #funding confirmation received by Unisa.
Once the issue has been resolved by NSFAS, students will be made aware.
