Students who have changed institutions are being denied funding. NSFAS have been failing to link the students' funding with the current institutions that they have registered with. I personally was registered at the central Johannesburg South in 2019 and I was funded by nsfas, in 2020 I registered again for the 2020 academic year but I then changed to Cape Peninsula University Of Technology and I immediately deregistered from the college. NSFAS sent me an email that I am registered in more than one institution and they told me what to do and I did just what they told me to do. I was getting allowance from my institution and I later stopped receiving my allowances.

At the Nsfas offices they told me that nsfas unfunded me  because I was registered in 2 institutions even though I deregistered. They They said that they considered me as a student in that college and since I didn't write my exams it automatically meant I failed and they unfunded me. They made it seem like it is my fault that all of this is happening. My last year's fees were not paid for and I am left with a debt and no funding.

I recently found out that many students who only registered in other institutions last year but have changed are also having the same problem. Suddenly the status on "my Nsfas" portal Is saying  "funded" but  it's linked to the institutions we deregistered from and we have not received any allowance or any communication from nsfas regarding the matter.

We want NSFAS to fix the issue and settle the debts that it has created for students and to link their funding with their current institutions. We are starving and we have not received any allowance to even buy study material. No one is taking our issue seriously
