NSFAF team I need to pay my tuition by next week. Mancosa (the university I’m studying at) is on me and exams is the 1st week of Nov 2017. Please revert back to me. Unique ID: b_sorf1240486001
    Your soonest response will be appreciated.
    Regards,

    • Sorya, you will soon be notified by email, concerning any updates.

  4. Hi, I’m a second year student at the University of Namibia. I got funded by NSFAF last year and i passed my first. This is my second year and still have not recieved any payment yet. Could it be that there were specific documents that i had to take to NSFAF or do the institution where i study notify NSFAF that i passed my first year.
    Please help im so stressed.

    • Angela, as a second year student you will have to reapply for the loan, along with all necessary documents.

      • I don’t understand why as a second year student why I should reapply for the loan. Wasn’t it a contract that has to go for four years as long as I pass my academic year?

  5. Hey NSFAF, I applied for special consideration months back and I still didn’t here anything from you

    • Lipitwa, kindly excercise a little more patience, you can contact the NSFAF student support.

  6. Dear NSFAF
    When are you paying for second year students? We signed a contract last year and we were funded. Whats going on this year?

    • Abraham, the NSFAF received a significant number of applications. Hence the delays.

  7. Hi, I am not able to login into my NSFAF portal. I requested for a new password,but I have not received anything.

    • Snyger, kindly contact the NSFAF student support center for assistance

  8. Good day
    Why is NSFAF keeping us in the dark. It has been long now but it keeps telling us that we will be paid soon. How soon is soon? May we atleast get a date when the last people are expected to be paid.
    The reason why many of us applied for loans is because our parents/guardians are not really able to fund us from their own pockets. It is really not easy. Majority of the applicants are less fortunate or are orphans. We just want to get good education and feel comfortable at our institutions. But how if some of us walk to school and can hardly concentrate because we are exhausted? We do not even have books or laptops to acces academic information so we have to go to Libraries or sometimes even miss out on important academic information. I do not want to say a lot….
    All i am asking for is for our tuition and non-tuition fees will be paid. Please help me and the rest we really need it. I speak for myself and on behalf of everyone. Or can we atleast get feedback as to how many students are yet to be paid.
    Thanks in advance

    • Hello, its unfortunate the NSFAF cannot specify a date at this time. However, much work is being done to settle all students.

  9. my application status Approved level 1, is there chance for me to be rejected?

    • Yes Maria, it is possible, NSFAF conducts extensive examination after the first approval stage.

  10. my payment history shows that my tuition and non tuion fees is paid but the amount is not yet reflect on my account and to UNAM account , for how long it take for the money to reflect .

    • Rebbeca, this should not take more than 5 business days.

  11. What does it mean by Approved application level 1, and how many level must be complete to reach final approval plus how long that may take en when is the due date of award letter?

    • Shilongo, there are two levels of approval. The second approval is carried out immediately after the first approval. This can last between a week to a month.

  12. Nsfaf please when are you sending our award letters, our institution are evening telling us they might stop us to attend classes which is clear that thy will not even give us a chance to sit for exam! For how long should one wait for a final letter since I receive preliminary in June and your office assured me that I am awarded but why the final letter is taking time to come please rescue us!! It is very difficult to concentrate in class thinking you will be kicked out anytime and end up not continuing with your study at all.

    • Nsfaf please reply to my concern, when are you sending our final letters, much less to fund our studies too…

      • Justy, you will be notified by mail concerning any updates.

  13. WHY MY STATUS IS PROVISIONAL IF I SUBMIT ALL THE REQUIREMENT AND I WAS AWARD PERLMINARY LETTER?

    • Addi, a preliminary award letter is issued before a final award letter. Extensive examination is carried out after issuing the preliminary award letter, after which funds are released.

  14. when i can get a ward letter,? i was so status is approved and now it say again provisional approve when and when i visit the office say s was wait for list of name now my name is gave pls help me

I am doing my traing at Wvtc as a EG N1 level and the assesment is nocking around us! What can we do for those which are receiving the reward letter but yet no funds awarded?

  18. Halo.. I. Passed my academic year.. But when I checked the payment checker it states tht no payment was done … what doI need to do?

    • Christophine, your account will be credited soon. You will be notified by mail.

  19. When is the due date for the awards letters I received my preliminary awards and I am now perplexed, people are saying tomorrow 29 Septembe is the last day for issuing of awards letters please tell us where we are standing.

  24. I was a computer science student 2014-2015 and only benefited from the fund for one year which is 2015. 2016 I enrolled for an education course and paid for myself. I applied for change of course and it got approved but it says I’ll benefit from the fund as from next year and this year will be at my own cost again.

Just tell us the truth so we can look for a way forward. Set as free, either way.

  60. Nsfaf,iam a loan holder doing education at Rundu campus but next year i want to change course and do Nursing.My Question is will i be paying for myself for One year or two as i heard that that is how your System works..pls help i need the right information,

  61. Nsfaf we know we are annoying you now but try to put yourself in our shoes! Since 12 June all I am been told is just go back and wait for your award letter, nowadays the operators are even just dropping the fone on my ears and if I attempt to go to the office it is just the same story over and over again! Seriously only 2 month left to exam again since January please consider everyone here it is so unfair how you handle your process! Some students are even given their refunds already why don’t you concentrate on settling all the school fees first,while some of us are just still in the dark! All I am being told is your application is approved at the last stage just go and wait your letter but when exactly?? please do something…

    • Justy, the NSFAF is doing much to ensure that all eligible students receive their award letters. letters are still being given, and you will be certainly awarded if you meet all the requirements. If you do not receive an award letter despite your eligibility, then you can file an appeal.

  62. hi.why is it that the nsfaf team is not specific on who should upload the terms and conditions because i received that message twice while i already uploaded,even though it also says ignore if you already submitted, its hard to settle because it brings uncertainty on whether my documents were well received. and this delay of making the payments really sucks, the country is broke, parents are broke and we are expected to make it to school everyday and pay rents and transport, we cant borrow quick loans because we are not certain of when nsfaf will pay.our lives are miserable as students.please give me a reply that will give me hope and not encourage me to drope out and go look for a job and come back when i can pay for my self. and im hoping that all students will be paid before december and that no one has to reach next year without their payments. and on an article that i read, someone from nsfaf said that its not nsfaf fault that some payments are delayed but rather the institutions,can you explain that if you can so that i know who to confront on this matter?

    • Susan, NSFAF is still awarding students, and aims at settling all students. The delays are on the part of the institutions because , before funds are released, the institutions must submit and sign documents which approve the settlement. A delay on the part of the institution on this leads to a delay in funding.

  63. NSFAF, international students in south africa are leaving on streets because u have not paid. It is not right. Please do something

  64. hi i login to follow my application since i was told that i applied at wrong tile, then i reapplied in 30 may, that time i reapplied all my document i was uploaded were there but when i login now there is no document uploaded at all, but the tile is changed. now must i re-upload the document or what should i do? since i reapplied no notification, because the notification i got is only for password now and i get it when i went to ask at your office and they told me that we will communicate. please help me cos i don t know what to do now.

    • Saara, you are allowed to reupload your documents as you await a feedback. If feedback is over due, contact the office again.

  85. If its possible, I’m kindly requesting u to please check for me my aplication if it’s corrected than u let me know. My ID 94030300375 asap

    • Princess, you will have to contact the NSFAF Student Support Center

      • student support center is it the same as student care centre?

      • Is there any difference between students support center and students care centre? Cos I’m usually go at students care center/ at the helping desk. I mean there is a students care/ call centre and students support centre?

  86. I want to hear from you nsfaf, I applied the first day people start to apply, I have 23 in grade 22 anf other qualification level 7 . It was your staff member who applied for me, I give him all my qualifications but at the end I was told I applied at wrong application. My problem is, my name was written /added to the list of names of those people who applied to wrong application and I was told ur staff member will correct it, but just imagine from May until now nothing has been done. I’m always there at your office but they are always telling me different story .some are saying they are waiting for the IT to come and do the collection, anyway where are you IT and for how long are they taking to be back at work? Last week I was there, I was told my things are corrected but yesterday I was there and was told that my application is not yet corrected. How is that possible? I want an a clear explanation about this. Your things are very complicated. Contact me on 2121003 if it’s possible and my ID NUMBER is 94030300375. I’m tired of always getting different answers from ur staff member. I don’ t know kutya which one I must believe at all.

    • Princess, its unfortunate you experienced all the confusion. The NSFAF is working to provide award letters to students who met the requirements.

  87. NSFAF I bet you done awarding your relatives now. When are you going to award poor students that are not related to you???? We waited for so long but nothing. Your online system is fucked up. Award us please.

  88. please NSFAF us, second year students at NUST can’t bear the burden of unsettled accounts any longer. what an unreliable institution! Do we have mothers in there? months consists of days, hours, minutes and seconds; all this time students have NSFAF on their minds which is now developing into a tomour. But does Nsfaf consider students even for a minute? my people we cant wait to prove your newly introduced system other wise it is worse than the old one. We need 2017 refunds in and for 2017.

  89. I am a first year student and I applied with a wrong category (prior qualification) I do not have a certificate at Level 5 but my overall points in 5 subjects is 33 with a D in English.
    After applying, I immediately received a text saying ” Your application is successful based on NSFAF funding criteria and subject to proof of supporting documents” I then went to Oshana NSFAF center and I was told that they are going to deal with me after validation.
    Should I still hope that I will get awarded since I do not have an NQA Level 5 certificate and to make matters worse, validation ended in June 30.
    Am I really on the safe side?

    • People are no longer getting award letters or what???

      • Ester, the NSFAF is still considering students who meet the requirements but didnt receive an award letter

        • Does this mean am awarded? ???

    I provided all the wanted details but I did not receive my award letter yet. Where is the problem? ??

    • Ester, after providing all the necessary documents and information, NSFAF conducts a thorough examination of your eligibility and validates your documents. Kindly contact the NSFAF student support to ensure your application was approved or not.

  91. when i have loged on my application, I found “award letter to be uploaded” down on the left side. Does it mean I am awarded or I should still wait for the notification on email or so??

    • Yes Sesilia, you can however confirm this by contacting the support center.

    • Veronica, stage two, is simply the next step of your application, after which a preliminary letter is given. After issuing a preliminary letter, NSFAF conducts a thorough validation of all documents and paperworks. If any document is found missing, the preliminary letter is withheld.

      • Hi
        will they let us konw if there is some document missing? and how long does it take?

        • Mate, yes. NSFAF notifies students of missing documents, but in some cases they do not, which will result in delayed fund settlements. You are advised to contact the office for any delays.

  92. When I log into my account it is indicated that my application is successful but still I did not get any response from NSFAF. Will I still be awarded?

    • Naomi, a successful application doesnt necessarily mean you will be awarded. After successfully submitting your application, NSFAF validates your documents and checks your eligibility. If any of these is missing, your award will be denied.

  93. I have been a loan holder since 2015 ,was I supposed to reapply for the loan this year? I’m in my final year please help.

    • Yes Betty, you will have to reapply for the NSFAF Loan.

  94. Is NSFAF stl wrking on sending award letters? Coz i ws told i should be patient ever since lst month until i go at their office in whk but stl whn i cll thm they are just tellng me u are at stage 2….wht is tht????

  95. I applyed by hard copies because the birthday on one of my grade 12 certificate is wrong. But until today I haven’t been contacted. Or the people that applyed with hard copies are not going to get loans?

    • Peter, students who applied with hard copies are eligible for NSFAF loans. If you are certain that you meet all the requirements, contact the NSFAF support center.

  96. Dear NSFAF team
    I am a third year student and a loan holder but i am very much disappointed with NSFAF. I received my refund last friday but I only get $16500 insteadd of 21600. That happens again 2016, I only get 17415 instead of 21600. My question is why am i not getting the same amount like everybody. Its official that every student is now receiving 21600. 2016 nsfaf owes me $4185 and this year nsfaf owes me $5100 which will give the total of $9285. This is not fair nor right. Where will that money go? Or maybe we need to ask the Minister to tell us whether only some students who are getting 21600. I am always calling the nsfaf but they never pick up their phone. I am waiting for a better answer. Thank you

    • Rachel, NSFAF in its bid to settle all students sometimes makes changes and adjustments to its payment system in order to serve as many students as possible. Also, payments are subject to terms and conditions, hence amount received may alter from student to student.

  97. morning guys when exactly u will settle my outstanding tuition fees for last year ,because i want to claim for my qualification but the institution is saying i cant while owing,furthermore will u settle them together at the same time or you settle for 2016 first thn 2017 pls help!!?

    • Amon, its unfortunate a precise date cannot be currently given. 2016 applicants will be settled before, if not alongside 2017 students.

  98. NSFAF help desk there is no answer, how can I get hold of them?

    • Mate, you will have to visit any NSFAF regional office near you.

  99. Good Morning
    I still didnt get any feedback on my application, How does this work as Im waiting patiently but nothing even the rejection so i can know.Please

NSFAF, why are you not considering us with 24 points in 5 subjects,? why? why are you giving loans to mature entry people,some of those have used fake documents to apply to university . why are you funding mature entry people, these are the people who have money already , they have jobs they should pay their fees on they own please.

    • Tunelao, according to the NSFAF award policies, only students with a minimum of 25 points are eligible for funds. And thus, must be adhered to.

      • But y do u guys award unam students that are doing Diploma in education with 22 points ? do they meet the requirements ?u must treat everyone equally

    What is the status of my application form ? Pls nsfaf I just want to know where I’m standing because this preliminary award is somehow doubtful.

  148. Although the institution is part of the delay but we informed NSFAF about the situation which some of the students are facing at Rundu campus due 2014 payment which was not settled.Thus Mr Simasiku , Nayuni and David Nathige were told about it and up to now no feedback is given and to us students it is worring situation because we are owing Unam and to make the matter worse this is our final year.

    • Moses, from your description, it may be that your application was not received as early as you applied. Therefore a delay in the processing of your application. Kindly wait for a notification mail.

  262. Is it a guarantee that people who have received an email for provisional approval 2017 will be given award letters or not and if not, why can’t you atleast let people know where they stand in all this.. ??

    • Yes Ethel, a provisional letter is a guarantee that your application was successful, although actual funds havent been released yet.

      • Thank you for your response #TeamNSFAF

    • Hi how does a provisional letter looks like? Thank u

  263. Hi. I am admitted to do my master abroad and i am to start in october and I received a preliminary award email, does that mean NSFAF will fund my study? When is NSFAF will start paying since I need money to pay the tution fees before classes starts?

    • Yes Mirjam, you will receive the funds. Payments are to be made as soon as possible. No dates can be specified as at now.

  264. Hey! When are we expecting the second list, we want to know where we stand…. we are so stressed

  265. Why is NSFAF so mute after they released the first list of successful applicants for 2017 ? When are we getting final award letters also which use to be send daily before the first list was released? Some of us we have assignment due on 15 June 2015, if i dont present something at school to prove that NSFAF will fund my studies, i wont be allowed to submit assignments to secure our exams for August or else i have to drop out and continue next year. When can i expect final award letter since i were told our loan is approaved ?

    • Mpazzd, award letters are being distributed and target for final delivery is on 30th June

      • Does it exactly meant if I find my name in list released I will be funded??

      • So what will happen if i dont get final award letter neither rejection letter, what must i do ?

  266. iam a second year UNAM student applied for the loan for the first time,now i don’t knw how to either check or see if i will be awarded an award letter since i have received a password?

  269. Hai. I received my preliminary award letter in march and NSFAF has been requesting for my terms and condition, i did sent it several times but until now i didn’t receive any answer from them. At least i should get an answer because its much better than not hearing anything from them.
    Starting my exams even next week and up to now i don’t know where am standing.
    Thank you

    • Fredrika, if you signed the terms and conditions during the initial application process, then there is no need to sign it again. In this case simply wait for the final award letter. However if you didnt, then you must do so.

  270. My question has not yet been answered. Have the award letters started to be sent to students already or they will be just sent once on 30 June 2017? I’m asking this because I read in the Namibian newspaper, and NSFAF they have said that the end of June is their target to finalize with validation process.

    • Alfeus, the award letters will be released as time goes on, not necessarily at a go. Letters which are ready will be delivered to students.

      • Through the box or thy will be send through emails? Cz I’m still waiting for my award letter and Im going to write exam on the 10th of July please Wht mst I do

    • Yes Hilma, you can expect an award letter now.

  290. Hello, i am Magnus, i previously got preliminary award letter and was told am not yet awarded, can i get final rejection letter after getting preliminary award letter ? Worried

    • No Sikongo, this means you will have to wait a while for your award to be ACTUALLY granted, but with certainty of getting it.

      • I just wanted confirm when we are going to get the students assistant fund from NSFAF . We dont have any gurantee that we will take part in exams , and in lack of modules due to this .

        • Hangula, unfortunately theres currently no set date for the student funds to be released. Work is being done to address the issue.

  291. When can we start applying for partial postgraduate scholarship and loan for academic year 2018?

    • Elow this shall commence within the first quarter of 2018

      • Thank you for you prompt response.
        Just to understand better, academic year 2018 starts in January 2018 (and your application as you replied above commences in the first quarter of 2018). I’m trying to make sense out of this, should students not be sure of their status regarding funding prior to academic year?
        I’m sure you meant to write “last quarter of 2017”?
        Regards
        Shuudeni

  366. Hello.
    Is there a possibility of getting funded by NSFAF this year if I was at NIMT ( Namibia Institute of Mining and technology) the previous year and I only did my Level 1 of apprenticeship, I am asking this because NIMT students do not get the non-tuition fees which I believe is the loan, in addition, the tuition fee is paid directly to the school account through NTA (Namibia Training Authority).
    I look forward to a prompt response.

  367. When exactly will the list be out ?

    • Korner, this cannot be determined, unfortunately.

    • When is the deadline for awarding lettrs?

And I don,t understand how some people are getting multiple award letters and I am getting none. Please they should check their system and consider us too, we are living in fear as in we might be forced to drop out of schools.
