The resolutions effectively enable hundreds more students at Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) to go ahead with registration, provided that they meet the necessary academic requirements, are awaiting NSFAS funding confirmation and there is still place in their chosen programmes.

The decision by NSFAS in consultation with students is aimed at ensuring that as many students as possible are registered in time for the start of lectures nationally. Lectures at NMMU start on Monday, 6 February.
In waiving the usual means test in order to speed up its processes, NSFAS also committed to work with universities to reconcile and confirm the validity of supporting these students.
The financial loan scheme for students whose families earn less than R244 000 annually will pay out R9.9 billion in 2017, of which R285m has been allocated for NMMU students.
If students falling within the above mentioned cohorts continue to experience blockages when trying to register, they should consult the Financial Aid official stationed at the registration venue.
In the event that the matter remains unresolved even after consulting the on-site official, students can approach the Dean of Students who will, if applicable, direct the matter to a Panel set up to attend to such matters. Details of the Panel will be shared after it has convened its first meeting.
