How do you check your Nsfas status?

If you’ve been waiting anxiously to find if you have been accepted into the scheme, here’s a simple guide on how to check your National Student Financial Aid Scheme application status.


When you apply for study funding at the National Student Financial Aid Scheme, you can usually expect a response a few days after the application closing date.

However, if you still haven’t heard back from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme, it might be time to take things into your own hands.

It’s not a difficult process, but to make things even easier, we’ve provided you with the steps below.

Step 1:

If you would like to check the status of your NSFAS application, please visit the NSFAS website. Click on MyNSFAS account and login with your ID and the password you created during your application.
