NSFAS 2017 Applications: Closing Date 14 February 2017

Tell others, SHARE THIS

After considering all the submissions by our stakeholders, NSFAS executive management decided that it was best to open the second and last application window of application for financial aid as follows.

  • NSFAS will re-open for 2017 applications for all learners who have not applied during the 01 August – 30 November 2016 window period;
  • Applications for students who wish to study at TVET colleges will open from the 09 January 2017 and close on 14 February 2017; and this is meant to coinside with release of matric results.
  • Applications for students who wish to study at universities will open from 09 January 2017 and close on 20 January 2017.

Although NSFAS will accept paper applications, universities and TVET colleges are encouraged to assist students to submit online applications during these application periods. This will speed up the process of evaluation and funding to students.


We are calling on all young people who missed the first application phase this year and need NSFAS financial support, to take advantage of this second opportunity and submit their applications for financial assistance as soon as possible. Online applications can be done on the NSFAS website, while manual applications can be sent via fax, post or email, as with the recent application phase. This is now time to start collating all your supporting documents so that the applications process is smoother.
