Your matric results are the official record attesting to the completion and passing of your 12 years of fundamental education and your eligibility to continue your study at a higher institution.


For South African students who want to attend TVET Colleges or public universities, NSFAS is a financial aid programme that offers funds for higher education. The 2023 National Student Financial Aid Scheme application period will be open from 2 November 2022 through 7 January 2023.


Many students often ask if they can be funded by Nsfas without matric. Without a Matric, you cannot apply for NSFAS financing. Students who are accepted to study at a university or a TVET College are those who are supported by NSFAS.


Students must submit an application and a certificate of graduation from Grade 9-12 in order to be admitted to a university or Tvet college. This means that if you don’t have matric results that will allow you to enrol in a university or college, NSFAS will not finance you.


If you want to be funded by Nsfas, then it is advised to upgrade your matric certificate. Then will you be able to apply for the 2023 Nsfas with your matric?
