How Do You Appeal To NSFAS?

In order to appeal to NSFAS for your application to be reviewed and possibly get approved to be able to get funding, you’ll need to write an NSFAS appeal motivational letter.

It is in your appeal letter that NSFAS will review the reasons and claims you make and consider you for the funding.

However, there are rules and guidelines to writing an NSFAS appeal letter and you must abide by all the rules before your appeal can be successful.

We, therefore, recommend that you read How To Write NSFAS Appeal Motivational Letter 2023 for detailed guidelines for writing a successful appeal to NSFAS.

Where Do I Appeal To NSFAS?

You will have to Login MyNSFAS Account and click on the Track Application Progress tab. When your application shows unsuccessful, you’ll see the Submit Appeal tab, click on it and complete your appeal letter.

How Do You Submit NSFAS Appeal Letter

If you write your appeal letter in your MyNSFAS Account, you’ll see the Submit button at the bottom of the appeal page, just click on it and your appeal will be sent to NSFAS.

Make sure you click on the submit tab to send your appeal letter to NSFAS before you close the page.

What Documents Do You Need For NSFAS Appeal?

When NSFAS rejects your application, they’ll give you reasons why your application can not be approved for funding.

For example, NSFAS will inform you if you didn’t upload some of the required supporting documents. The reason will show “missen supporting documents”.

In such a case, you’ll have to upload all the referred missing supporting documents when appealing to NSFAS.

Again, if your application was unsuccessful because of not meeting the household income per annum benchmark, you’ll need to attach your salary payslip or your parents/guardian salary’s pay slip of not more than at least the past three months to back your claims in the letter.

You should read What Documents Do You Need For NSFAS Appeal 2023? for all the other documents that you may need for your NSFAS appeal,

Can NSFAS Reject Your Appeal For Funding?

It is possible that NSFAS will reject your appeal after reviewing your letter and considering the reasons you raise and also the supporting documents you added to be not enough to get you the funding.

Therefore, to prevent your appeal from getting rejected again, you should write a good appeal letter to call empathy on your behalf and upload all the necessary supporting documents to make your appeal stronger.

Can I Appeal Twice To NSFAS?

You can appeal again if your previous appeal was rejected. However, you can only do so before the submission of appeals is closed.

Without knowing your NSFAS funding status for 2023, it will be very difficult to know what to do. You should go to the finance/bursary office of your institution to inquire whether you’re listed as NSFAS-funded students for 2023.

Universityonlineapplication August 31, 2022 - 9:25 pm

If your 2022 NSFAS application was unsuccessful. You’ll need to apply again when applications are open before you can be funded. And yes, continuing students who are not currently funded but need the funding will have to apply for approval to get the NSFAS funding.

Again, it doesn’t matter if you have outstanding fees or not. Just apply and pray you get approved for the funding.

If your appeal is closed, it means NSFAS did not consider your appeal and has not approved you for funding.

If the website is working correctly, you should be able to upload all required documents at a go. Uploading documents must go through correctly without any hiccups if the site is working correctly. This means, you don’t need to upload it multiple times but once.

Try to change the browser you’re using and upload them again.

Hello I have a problem here I have been trying to track my status for sometime now but I couldn’t it allowed me today In the morning but there was no appeal button to appeal because it says I’m unsuccessful funded I have exceeded N+ but I did state that I’m a continuing student for another 3years now I’m stuck I don’t know what to say or to do please help me escape this problem I’m facing

Universityonlineapplication March 4, 2022 - 7:02 am

The situation here is that, with the N+ rules, NSFAS counts from the first year you registered into an institution and not from when you started getting funding. So, it doesn’t matter where you change institution or course, NSFAS N+rule will still affect you if you’re continuing students and have exceeded the eligible funding years.
