Can You Appeal If You Have Exceeded NSFAS N+2 Or N+3 Rule?

Can you appeal to NSFAS if you have exceeded NSFAS N+2 or N+3 Rule?

Are you a student who has exceeded NSFAS N+2 Rule or NSFAS N+3 rule and wants to know if you can appeal to NSFAS for reconsideration?

Well, this is one of the most frequently asked questions about NSFAS appeals especially, by students whose funding has been canceled due to exceeding the N+2 or N+3 rule.

In this article, you’re going to know the answer to NSFAS N+2 and NSFAS N+3 appeals.

So, let’s get started with the topics.

Can You Appeal If You Have Exceeded NSFAS N+2 Or N+3 Rule?

The answer is no, you cannot appeal to NSFAS if you have exceeded your N+2 or N+3 rule.

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has categorically stated that students who have exceeded their n+rule cannot submit appeals to NSFAS for reconsideration.

This includes all the NSFAS N+ rules which are N+2 and N+3 rules.

Why Can’t Students Appeal NSFAS N+2 Or N+3 Rule?

This is because, according to the NSFAS funding rule, the student has exceeded his/her eligible funding years and does not qualify for funding anymore.

Once a student has consumed all his or her qualified years for funding, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) cannot fund his or her studies anymore.

Is There A Reconsideration For Exceeded NSFAS N+2 Or N+3 Rule?

The answer is no, students whose applications for funding are rejected because of exceeded N+2 rule or N+3 rule do not stand the chance for reconsideration from NSFAS.

Can Students Affected By NSFAS N+2 Or N+3 Rule Get Funding?

Yes, students who are affected by the NSFAS N+Rules can get funding from other scholarships and bursary programs.

Nonetheless, the student cannot get financial support from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) again till completion of his or her course.

In conclusion, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) will not allow students who are affected by the exceeded NSFAS N+2 rule or NSFAS N+3 rule to appeal for reconsideration.

Students affected by either of the rules will therefore have to seek financial support for their university or TVET College education elsewhere.

They can apply for scholarships or other bursaries for funding.

With this, I do recommend that students apply for scholarships and other bursary programs so that they will get the financial support they need to complete their studies.
