National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) Bursary Applications 2022.

The application forms must be accompanied by all stated supporting documents, eg, Certified ID copy of student/ applicant, Certified ID copies of both parents if one/both are deceased- certified death certificate, income statement/ payslip of both parents if they are working, if they are not working an affidavit stating they are not working, if they are getting a grant, a proof showing that, if the applicant has brothers and sisters, their certified ID/ birth certificates copies, if they are registered with other tertiary institutions, proof of that is also required. Original documents and copies must be taken to the nearest Police station/ local Post Office for the stamp.

Original documents are not accepted. It is the responsibility of the student to make sure that the application form is fully/ correctly completed.

On submission of NSFAS application form, the student will receive a receipt, which should be kept as a proof of application, without it, is your word against ours. Please present your slip at all times to the Financial Aid/Bursary Office.

First-Year students will only be given an application form for Financial Assistance upon providing the Financial Aid Office with a letter from the university indicating that the student has been either accepted or provisionally accepted for the 2022 academic year.

The value of the NSFAS award will only be credited to the student’s fee account in the third term, once all bursaries have been awarded and paid into the student’s account. This is to ensure that the loans granted are as low as possible.

Students receiving NSFAS loans will be required to complete an application form and a loan agreement before any payment will be effected.

The allocation received from NSFAS is limited and hence the Financial Aid Committee of the Coastal KZN TVET College, who gives financial aid awards, must ensure that as many students are supported as possible while at the same time taking into account financial need.

Students are therefore advised that registering on the basis of receiving a full loan from NSFAS should not be considered and that a family contribution as determined by the Means Test may be required. It is also important to note that there are various different kinds of funding made available each year through NSFAS.

All students can apply for a loan from the National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS), a government loan scheme with the added incentive of a bursary conversion (max 40%) depending on academic performance. The parent’s/family’s contribution to the student’s study cost is called the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) and is calculated using the Government’s National Means Test.

The Department of Higher Education & Training’s TVET Colleges Bursary Scheme has been established to give financial assistance to students who have the potential to succeed at NCV or NATED (Report 191) Studies, but would not be able to do so without financial aid. This scheme is administered by NSFAS (National Students Financial Aid Scheme).

A National Means Test Tool determines who qualifies for the bursary. Students, who do not qualify for NSFAS bursary, will have to pay the full appropriate tuition fees.

Who is eligible for the TVET College Bursary Scheme?

You are eligible to apply for the bursary if you are:

  • A South African Citizen,
  • Registered or intend to register for NCV or NATED (Report 191) Programme,
  • In need of financial assistance,
  • Able to demonstrate potential for academic success.

Will the bursary fund cover all eligible students who apply?

No. It is not possible for the bursary to cover all students in the college due to the limited bursary funding available.

Will students who are awarded bursaries have to pay money back after completion of their studies?

No. TVET College students do not have to pay the money back as it is a bursary allocation and not a loan.

Which Programmes are funded by NSFAS?

  • National Certificate Vocational (NCV) Programmes
  • Nated / Report 191 Programmes

What are the documents that students have to submit when applying for a bursary?

  • 4 certified copies of student’s ID

Does a bursary holder automatically qualify for a bursary at the end of each Level / Trimester  /  Semester?

Qualifying students

  • Report 191 Programmes     – Must have passed 3 subjects out of 4
  • NCV                                    – Must have passed 5 subjects out of 7

If a student has been granted a bursary and does not progress to the next level, is he/she still eligible for a bursary? NO

Students who do not meet the criteria to progress to the next level of study are viewed as repeaters and will not qualify for Financial Aid. Students, who wish to enrol, repeat a level or switch to another programme, will be expected to finance their studies.

Switching between different Programs (“Program Hopping”)

According to the DHET TVET College Bursary Scheme rules and guidelines 2015 – Pg 10, paragraph 14.14:  “With effect from 2013, bursary recipients who switch from one programme to another (i.e. from NCV to Report 191 programme or vice-versa) during the course of their studies are not eligible for financial assistance.

Furthermore, bursary recipients who complete NCV Level 4 are not eligible for financial assistance should they want to enrol for Report 191 programme N1-N3; similarly bursary recipients who complete Report 191 N6 are not eligible for financial assistance should they want to enrol for a NCV programme. However, bursary recipients who complete NCV L4 are eligible for financial assistance should they want to enrol for Report 191 N4-N6. ”

Financial Aid is linked to academic performance, financial need and class attendance. Attendance Policy of 80% attendance will be adhered to.
