How Do I Withdraw Money From My NSFAS Wallet?

As you are probably aware, the National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a government agency that helps students with financial aid. You can enroll in the program and apply for funding if you are a South African citizen who is enrolled in post-secondary education.

The NSFAS process starts when you apply for funding and continue until your studies have been completed successfully. There are several options available to withdraw money from your NSFAS wallet including bank transfers, direct payments to institutions, and accessing funds through ATMs or debit cards.

You will receive a notification via SMS when there is money in your account and you can use it to pay for bills like electricity or rent. You can also check your NSFAS wallet balance in person, online at, or by calling 0800 11 55 55 (free).

The institution will then send an invoice to NSFAS on behalf of the student with details of what has been paid and when it was paid for so that they can claim those funds from their own budgets; this is known as ‘delegated payment’ or ‘payment through another entity’ because it means that NSFAS does not pay directly into university bank accounts but instead uses its own funds towards paying students’ tuition fees and accommodation costs through third parties such as universities themselves who then reimburse them accordingly once invoices have been issued by institutions involved in this process – making sure every cent goes directly where it should!

If you meet the requirements to receive a student allowance, NSFAS can pay this allowance directly into your bank account. To be able to receive your allowance in this way, you must have:

  • A bank account; and
