Once you have applied to The National Student Financial Aid Scheme, you would be asked to fill and submit the NSFAS consent form so that your application is completed and can be processed.
Without the consent form, you are not able to submit your NSFAS online application successfully.
What is a consent form?
A Consent Form gives written permission to another party that they understand the terms of an event or activity that will be performed.
Most often NSFAS uses this form to ensure that the personal information obtained from third parties is treated confidentially and to protecting the privacy of the persons whose personal information is made available to NSFAS.

How to submit nsfas consent form
Once you have completed the form, go to the MyNSFAS portal and log in. You will see the option to upload your outstanding supporting documents. Once the documents have been uploaded click on the tab ‘Submit Documents‘.
The process is complete once all documents are uploaded and you receive a notification that says ‘Outstanding application documents submitted successfully uploaded‘.
If you did upload the documents but there was a problem the most common issue is that the documents are not clear. If you have a problem taking photos with your cellphone you can go to an NSFAS or an NYDA office and they will assist you.
If there is not an NSFAS or NYDA office near you, and you have applied to a college or varsity then ask their fees office to assist you.
Once you’ve applied, log in to track your NSFAS Status.
