How to Get Your NSFAS Reference Number


Financial aid for undergraduates in South Africa is provided via the National Student Financial Aid Scheme, a government-sponsored student aid programme that provides financial assistance to students who have graduated from high school. It is supported by the Department of Higher Education and Training.

As a result, the reference number serves as official documentation that your application was received by NSFAS. Your email and application were not received, and a reference number should have been sent to you as soon as possible. Either via email or text message, you’ll get this special code.
