Summary. This article answers the following questions:
- Why do I need to sign my NSFAS Bursary Agreement (NBA)?
- What step can I use to help me sign my NBA?
You are required to sign your NSFAS Bursary Agreement (NBA) or view your NBA in order for NSFAS to pay your allowances. For students who were funded by NSFAS for the first time in 2020, they are not required to sign the NBA as they have already signed it during the application stage.
In relation to all students who applied and have been funded during 2019 or prior, they need to provide a signed NBA. You should review the relevant list of terms and conditions before signing your NBA: University NBA Terms and Conditions and TVET NBA Terms and Conditions.
Below are some useful steps to guide you:
- Receive an email with a link to sign online through your registered email address, click on the link to proceed.
- Or, click here to see if your NBA is ready to sign.
- Insert your ID number and receive a One Time Pin (OTP) through an SMS to your registered cell phone number.
- Type in the received OTP to continue with the signing of the agreement.
When finished, you will receive a notification on the screen that the Terms and Conditions have been submitted. This means you have successfully signed your NBA. Your parent or legal guardian should sign for you if you are under the age of 18.
