NSFAS UNISA 2024/2025



NSFAS offers its students monthly stipends, which in some cases are given to them by their educational institution. The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) allowance payments are processed twice a month by the University of South Africa (Unisa). In the first and third weeks of every month, allowances will be processed. To deposit the NSFAS allowances and refunds into student accounts, Unisa will adopt a new electronic funds transfer (EFT) procedure. Only individuals who meet the requirements for these payments will get them. The UNISA and Its NSFAS Bursaries are covered in detail here.
