Wits is fast-tracking the NSFAS appeals process

- Wits University

Senior Executive Team statement on appeals process.

We are aware that some students are anxious about the appeals relating to their application for financial aid. 

The deadline for all students to submit their appeals and ALL documentation (that is properly certified) is 18 February 2016. Please ensure that all documentation is submitted and certified as stipulated on the application form. 

We are doing all that we can to ensure that the National Students’ Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) appeals process is fast-tracked. Through the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office (FASO), we have appointed a special team to review all documentation without delay. The Committee will be reviewing all appeals, giving priority to those whose documents are in order and will accelerate the applications of those who need access to residence. 

You will be contacted via telephone, email or SMS regarding the outcome of your application. We do however encourage you to regularly visit the Student Self-Service Portal to check the status of your appeal. 

The deadline for appeals and the submission of all documentation (certified) is 18 February 2016.  

The appeals process will be complete by the 28th of February 2016 at the latest.
