How to check nsfas status at unisa?

If you’re planning to study at the University of South Africa (UNISA) and you’re applying for the NSFAS program, you can check your status by following these steps:

  1. Open the official UNISA website
  2. Input your login details then click on the Submit button
  3. Once you access your account, you can check your status on the site.

It’s important to note that Unisa students don’t get access to Nsfas Wallets. Instead, you would receive your allowances through an Intellicard or through the University of South Africa. This means that you will receive information from your institutions about the allowances.

As a Unisa student, if you receive a letter entitled, “Statement of Account,” don’t panic! Unisa sends these letters to everyone in their system – and that includes students funded by Nsfas. If your status changes, the school will receive your payments. Unisa knows this process as communication occurs between Nsfas and Unisa
