How to Check NSFAS Wallet Balance

NSFAS has funded several needy students through their tertiary education over the years. They have supported several people to attain their aspirations in the country. Apart from paying the tuition fees and accommodation for their various applicants who are approved, they have also paid allowances to the beneficiaries who have used to help themselves throughout the schooling and also to get essential supplies and food during the academic year.
