Message from Unisa Student Funding

The Student Funding Division is attending to enquiries as quickly as possible, but there are some activities that are being affected by the lockdown, such as the processing of allowances, refunds, stipends and allocations. This will affect both NSFAS and other bursary students, including postgraduate students.

To date, there are 151 317 NSFAS-funded students at Unisa and 124 000 allowances have been successfully paid to students. A total of 20 400 students were successfully linked by NSFAS recently and the allowances will be paid on Friday 15 May 2020.

There are about 5 700 NSFAS students that were retracted by NSFAS in March. The affected students will receive SMSs in this regard and all enquiries should be directed to NSFAS.

NSFAS is working on linking about 11 050 NSFAS-funded students. Allowances will be paid out as soon as the process is finalised by NSFAS.

Student Funding has no outstanding templates to submit to NSFAS. NSFAS is working on updating the status on the NSFAS portal platform.
