What 'Funding Eligibility' NSFAS Status Means

This is the time when most students will be looking for their statuses on the myNSFAS portal as learning is about to commence in institutions of higher education. Should you happen to receive the ‘Funding Eligibility’ status, here’s what it means.

Once you've submitted your NSFAS application, you're going to need to check your application status. One NSFAS status you might see is 'Funding Eligibility'.

Should your status read ‘Funding Eligibility’, this means that NSFAS is verifying your household financial status that was declared in your application.

There’s no timeframe when it comes to when your NSFAS status changes and how long it will take for your application to be processed.

Students are advised to continue monitoring their application status on the myNSFAS portal.

Here is how you check your status

  1. Log in to the MyNSFAS student portal at the official NSFAS website.
  2. Input your username, password, and click on SIGN IN.
  3. Search for Track Funding Progress and click on it.

NSFAS provides bursaries to individuals who plan on studying or are applying to study at one of South Africa's 26 Public Universities or 50 TVET Colleges.

NSFAS bursaries cover more than just your tuition fees. NSFAS will also cover your registration, accommodation, transport, books and other student needs.
