12.6.2 The remission of fees as described in the above awards does not apply to students who are in receipt of any scholarship or bursary (including NSFAS loans and bursaries), which covers the full amount that the student qualifies for in terms of this policy and which is ear-marked for the payment of tuition fees. The student is entitled to secure a loan for the balance of tuition fees owing only.
