Nsfas Online applications Steps

Nsfas Online Application: All students who will register at public universities/ TVET colleges for the first time and need financial support, can now apply directly to NSFAS for financial assistance. Applications will remain open between December and  January 30.


Below are the Nsfas Online applications Steps

Step 1


In case it is not opening, you should keep trying since it may be due to the number of people trying to access the site at the same time.

Take note of all the supporting documents you will need, read the terms and conditions, and download the parent consent form.

Step 2

  • Register yourself as a user on myNSFAS.
  • You will need to create a username and password, which you will use to log in to your myNSFAS account to update your details.
  • To complete the register process you will need a cellphone number and email address.
  • If you do not have an email address, you can easily create a Gmail address

    Please note that registering on myNSFAS is not the application process yet. You must proceed to the APPLY tab to access the application form and apply.


Step 3

Once you have registered, click the APPLY tab and you will be taken to the online application form. Read the form carefully, and start to fill in your particulars.

IMPORTANT! Before filling in the application form, you will need to have scanned copies of all the supporting documents. These supporting documents must be uploaded. Don’t start the application until you have all the supporting documents, as you will not be able to save the form and come back to it later.

When you have completely filled in the application form and attached all the supporting documents, click the Submit button to submit the application, and wait to receive a reference number.


Make sure you submit your application on or before the closing date of 30 January. Applications that arrive after this date will not be considered.
