Are you a university or TVET college student that has been approved to receive student funding from the NSFAS, but have already paid for your own registration fee? Here’s what you should do, according to NSFAS.
Receiving the news that NSFAS has approved your student funding application can be quite exciting. But it can sometimes happen that you have already paid the registration fee out of your own pocket by the time that happens.
How Registration Fees Work For NSFAS Funded Students
When registering at a tertiary institution students are not required to pay the registration fee all they need to do is clarify that they are funded by NSFAS.
In addition to covering the cost of registration, the bursary also funds the following tertiary expenses:
- Living & personal care allowances
- Books & learning materials
The bursary only covers funded programmes at public universities and colleges, which include undergraduate qualifications.
