NSFAS urges prospective students, to keep tracking their application status and never miss any required information from them, students should be aware that nsfas can still ask them to upload other or more clearer documents because the initial uploaded documents are not visible enough or uploaded in a wrong file slot. 

Should you be required to upload any documents, NSFAS will send out an SMS to the number provided when registering a profile and specify which document(s) to upload, but some of the SMSs don't tell you which documents to upload they only say  "Dear nsfas applicant, please upload outstanding documents", Got this  SMS? Don't worry to know exactly which are needed from you, sign in to your myNsfas profile, a pop-up window will show up showing you which documents to upload
