NSFAS: Important changes to rules and allowances

Dear Student,

The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) has made changes to the rules and allowances applicable to different categories of students approved for NSFAS funding.

The main changes to the allowances for 2022 include a change in the allocated amounts; they also affect the types of allowances to students living off-campus in family or non-accredited accommodation (see table below for more detail). For example, students living at home will now receive a living allowance, and the transport allowance has been reduced to R7 500. Students in non-accredited accommodation will no longer receive an accommodation allowance.

The University has an adequate supply of UP residences and accredited accommodation to ensure that all NSFAS students can be accommodated in close proximity to the UP campuses. Students who are considering entering into private leases in non-accredited facilities are advised to rather apply for accommodation in accredited facilities in order to ensure that they qualify for NSFAS allowances in terms of the new rules as stipulated by the DHET. The accreditation of private accommodation is done strictly in terms of the applicable policies and in compliance with the government-prescribed minimum norms and standards for student housing.

Students requiring more information can approach the Department of Residence Affairs and Accommodation at the Registration Centre on the Hillcrest Sports Campus.

The new NSFAS allocations for 2020 are set out in the table below:
