What A ‘DHA Error’ NSFAS Status Means

When you receive a “DHA Error” status on your NSFAS application, it means that the Home Affairs database did not find you (the applicant).

  • There is no appeal procedure for this status.
  • It is recommended that applicants contact DHA for assistance.
  • For NSFAS bursary applicants, it is important to ensure the ID number entered is correct to avoid receiving an unnecessary rejection message.

In addition, many applicants made the mistake of starting the application process by creating a myNSFAS account, according to the financial aid scheme. The students have not submitted an application for the NSFAS bursary by doing this.

By simply creating a myNsfas account, you do not qualify for funding, according to NSFAS. The funding application will be submitted through the student’s myNsfas account by logging in and following the instructions.
