How To Upload Documents On NSFAS 2022
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a financial aid programme for South African students to help cover the costs of tertiary education. In order to apply for a bursary or loan through NSFAS, you need to complete the registration and application process by uploading documents.
How To Upload Documents On NSFAS 2022
To get started, you will need to open the NSFAS website and click on “Apply Now”.
- Click on “Apply for 2022 Studies”.
- Enter the relevant year (for example, 2021).
- Enter your personal details if you have not done so before (i.e., name, ID number or passport number).
- Enter your academic details (i.e., matric level obtained, qualifications obtained from a school that is not registered with UKZN).
After that, scroll down until you see an option called “Parent Information”. In this section enter all necessary information about your parent(s) or guardian(s). Remember that they are legally responsible for paying fees if you default on any payments! Last but not least click Next at the bottom right corner of each page as you progress through filling out these forms!
The next step is to fill in your personal information, including your name, email address and phone number. After that, you will need to select the correct year (you can only apply for a full-time course). Select whether the course is going to be offered at an accredited or non-accredited university and choose if it’s part of an internship program or not. Finally, select the correct school from the drop-down menu as well as its location and course code. If there are multiple schools available at that location with identical codes then make sure you choose one from each type: public university or private institution.
You will then be redirected to a new page where you can apply for the financial aid.
Fill in the required information like your name and ID number, contact details etc., as well as that of your parents/guardians (if applicable).
Click on ‘Apply for 2022 studies’.
Now, you will be required to fill in your personal details.
- First Name
- Last Name
- Date of Birth (dd/mm/yyyy) – this can be changed after submission but cannot be deleted or altered before submission. You must provide this information as it is needed for security purposes and used to verify that you are eligible for the benefit. For more information on the steps taken to verify students’ identities and eligibility, visit our FAQs page: [faq-nfsa-identity-verification](https://www.uwcrc.org/faq). Please note that providing false information may result in cancellation of your NFSAS application without notice or refund
On the next page, you will be asked to fill in your academic details. You can also upload your certificates, transcripts and marksheets.
Next, you need to select your Parent or Guardian’s occupation. You can choose from the drop-down list or type in your own answer. In this section, there are eight options:
- Government Employee
- Business Owner
- and Farmer
NSFAS will ask you a few questions about your parents or guardians’ financial situation, as well as how many dependents they have. These questions are important and should be answered accurately.
When it comes to the number of dependents you have, answer “yes” if any one of your family members is eligible for NSFAS funding (even if they are not applying). Your parents may also indicate that they want to be listed as a dependent on your application form, but this is not required by law.
The next question asks how much money your parents earn per month. The minimum threshold is R5 000 per month before deductions are made from their salary (including child support), but it’s better to enter an amount higher than that—the amount that you entered will determine how much money you receive on each payment date!
The final question asks about their financial situation in general—this includes things like whether or not there are any tax issues involved with claiming them as dependents on your application form, what expenses might prevent them from being able to support themselves financially (such as medical costs), etcetera…
- Enter your Parents or Guardian’s information if you are not an orphan and click ‘Next’.
- If you have been orphaned, proceed to Step 9.
You will need to upload documents for your Parent/Guardian’s information as well as their ID details and proof of residence. You can do this by clicking on the ‘Add Parents/Guardian’ button on the right-hand side of your screen. Once done, click ‘Save’ at the bottom of the page, then continue by clicking on ‘Next’ at the top right corner of your screen.
You can upload documents here to support your application. For example, you can upload your parents’ or guardians’ financial involvement towards your studies and living expenses. This is a mandatory step and you cannot proceed without providing this information. You may choose to upload documents in batches at once or one by one.
You may also choose to do so in any order (for example, if you receive new bank statements before uploading your final academic transcript). Please note that the system will not accept scanned documents such as bank statements/transcripts; they must be uploaded as PDF files instead.
So, if you want to apply for NSFAS, this article will be of help. You can now easily apply for 2022 studies by uploading the necessary documents.
