Financial aid Applications for South African students from secondary schools classified as NON-FEE PAYING should be available from the National Student Financial Aid Scheme at their website www.nsfas.org.za in due course.
The NSFAS new website is due to go live by 15 September 2013.
If this new procedure is delayed UKZN will prioritise its ENTRANT available funding for its Central Applications Office applicants who come from Quintile 1 schools. If funds permit, other non-fee paying Entrants (with proof) shall be considered.
APPLICATIONS FOR RETURNING UNDERGRADUATE UKZN STUDENT FUNDING ADMINISTERED FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE FROM 1 JUNE TO END OF AUGUST ANNUALLY - applications may be requested from the Financial Aid Advisors in the College Offices.
Returning Undergraduate Student Funding funded students also have the facility to make an ON-LINE reapplication through Student Central from 20 May of each year.
You are eligible to be considered for Student Funding bursaries (where the selection is done by the University Student Funding : Internal administration) if your family's Gross annual income does not exceed R150 000 (as from 2013) and you have passed all of your modules in the mid-year exams with an average mark of 65% and above.
HOW TO APPLY?
You must complete a University Financial Aid Application after your mid-year results are available as applications will only be issued to academically qualifying and financially needy students.
If you are already studying here, Student Funding will provide you with the application form after May but before 31 August of the year preceeding the year of award or require you to submit the renewal of your application through the ON-LINE system.
This is the only way of being considered by the University for financial aid.
Depending on your family income, and on your academic progress, you may be awarded a bursary or a scholarship. There is never sufficient funding for all applicants and all applicants are financially screened and listed in academic priority.
Follow the instructions exactly with regard to information required, documents requested, and deadline dates.
Note that we try to give opportunities to as many people as possible so we do NOT offer funding if you already have a degree at the level at which you intend to study or if you already have a post-graduate vocational qualification, or if you are registering part-time or for a "self-funding course".
WHAT YOU MAY BE AWARDED
IF YOU ARE FROM A REALLY NEEDY FAMILY WITHOUT OTHER FORMS OF FINANCIAL AID AND YOU HAVE REALLY GOOD RESULTS YOU ARE LIKELY TO BE AWARDED FINANCIAL AID.
If your results are mediocre or poor you are UNLIKELY to receive financial aid from the university.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO APPLY FOR A UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP. Whether you are an entrant or an undergraduate, the Scholarships Committee will compare all students with excellent results, and will tell you whether you have been awarded one of the many scholarships. If you are an entrant you may also be awarded a merit award based on achieving excellent results in the Senior Certificate Examination. See under Scholarships for details.
WHEN ARE AWARDS MADE?
After Registration and from March onwards.
