There are a number of students who have been admitted to the University but have been unable to register due to awaiting funding confirmation from the National Students Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) or other finance-related challenges.
The University has been working closely with NSFAS and the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) to speedily resolve all outstanding student funding challenges. This, in order to enable all those who have been admitted and are eligible for NSFAS to proceed with registration.
Since the end of last year, several concessions have been made by the financial aid scheme together with DHET in a bid to assist such students, which the University has been implementing in accordance with the agreed upon written directives.
National concessions for 2017:
NMMU concessions 2017:
2016 Zero EFC and NMMU Missing Middle:
This concession by the University is because the students were unable to register for reasons beyond their control.
Should students falling within the above-mentioned groups still experience challenges in registering, they should contact the Financial Aid office.
The University remains committed to ensuring that all admitted students are successfully registered and has been pressing NSFAS and government to urgently address funding matters.
To date, more than 24 000 students have registered for 2017 study. Normal registration ends today, 10 March, with late registration continuing until 31 March. Registration for 2017 study can be done via the link http://www.nmmu.ac.za/Students/Registration.
NMMU assures admitted students that although they are not yet registered because of a lack of financial commitment, their spaces remain reserved.
