Unisa NSFAS Laptop
Unisa NSFAS is pleased to inform all applicants that the distribution of laptops to NSFAS students has commenced. All NSFAS students who opted for the laptop option have, however, been allocated to a supplier of laptops. The suppliers will contact the students directly to arrange for distribution. The university is monitoring the distribution of the laptops and trust that the relevant NSFAS students will receive their laptops shortly.
The National Student Financial Aid Scheme (NSFAS) is a South African government institution which seeks to provide students from underprivileged families with access to higher education. NSFAS, which was founded in 1999, has been essential in giving financial aid to millions of students, allowing them to pursue their aspirations of higher education.
NSFAS primarily provides support for tuition, living expenses, and study materials, allowing eligible students to concentrate on their studies without being restricted by financial constraints. The organization’s programmes have developed over time to suit the changing environment of education and the requirements of South African students.

Steps To Order And Receive NSFAS Laptops
As part of the government’s mission to ensure that the COVID-19 pandemic does not disrupt teaching and learning at higher education and training institutions, the Minister of Higher Education, Science, and Innovation directed NSFAS to purchase learning devices for students to ensure that the blended learning methodology is implemented. Following that, the NSFAS Digital Learning Device Programme was launched. Follow the steps below to order and reciev NSFAS Laptops at UNISA;
- NSFAS funded students at universities:
You must be enrolled in a public institution to apply for a learning device; both new and returning students may apply.
- Complete the DLD form:
Collect, complete, and return the Digital Learning Device (DLD) form to your campus’s Financial Aid Office (FAO). Order your laptop using the DLD online order portal at www.nsfas.org.za. NSFAS and your university will validate your information as well as your order.
Following the completion of the verification procedure, an order for your laptop will be placed with our service providers to send the item for delivery. When your laptop is ready, the laptop service provider or your institution will contact you to schedule collection/delivery.
Remember that after you have been contacted for delivery and pickup of the device, no one may accept or collect it on your behalf; you must be there and sign before it is given over to you.
Before getting your device, you must provide your ID/birth certificate as well as evidence of academic registration/student card from your university.
- Agree to the terms and conditions:
Before getting your learning device, you must agree to the terms and conditions outlined by your university.
- Laptop payment:
Non-NSFAS sponsored students who need a device should check with their universities because they will be liable for the device’s payment and must thus agree to the payment conditions as set by the university.
As an NSFAS-funded student, you must present a valid ID, proof of registration (or student card), and sign the acknowledgement receipt of the digital learning equipment upon delivery. You will also be needed to agree to the device’s terms and conditions as given out by your university.
