NSFAS pays R1.3bn for student registrations

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has paid
R1.3 billion to 26 public universities for registration fees for qualifying students.

This equates to at least 15 percent of the total and final budget that each university may get for enrolling students who are eligible for government funding.

Over 160 000 students have been approved for funding and NSFAS is confident that no student, who has secured space, will be turned away because of funding.
