Learning Material Allowance and Living Allowance

  • Unisa NSFAS-funded students are only entitled to a Learning Material Allowance (LMA) and Living Allowance (LA) only.
  • Based on the 2022 DHET Grant Funding Guidelines, LMA is calculated based on the number of modules registered: R600 per module for the first four modules and R5200 once-off amount for five modules to ten modules. If the amount of R5200 LMA is paid for the first five modules, no additional LMA will be paid for additional modules.
  • Based on the 2022 DHET Grant Funding Guidelines, LA is paid to students registered for ten modules. A student who registers for ten modules and later reduces the number of modules registered will, unfortunately, forfeit this allowance.
  • Returning NSFAS students who received funding in 2022, have been declined for funding in 2022 and have appealed the decision: Please pay the minimum registration fee while you wait for the NSFAS appeal decision if you chose to do so.
