According to a quarterly report released by the Presidential office, the SRC liaised with the office of financial aid to assist studentswho are facing eviction from their residences by ensuring that the delays in pay-outs are rectified and that there is a line of communication with the respective landlords.

Some students were aided with funding while the office worked with TuksRes for provision of alternative residence. The SRC also called for revision of NSFAS accreditation guidelines, accommodation limits, and external bursary payouts.

There was a reported delay with the issuing of allowances and some accounts were on hold amid investigations on irregular expenditure at NSFAS.

The SRC office of study finance collaborated with the financial aid office in assisting students with pay-outs while students residing in TuksRes had payments made from their student accounts.

“A lot of students are currently being assisted with pay-outs as some did not submit their applications [so] students can approach the SRC, and we will assist each student on a case-by-case basis” says the SRC spokesperson.
