NSFAS wallet is a facility to give qualifying student allowance as cash funds.

Often, students do not know how to check their wallet balance, for they can spend wisely on their NSFAS.

So today, I want to walk you through two (2) simple steps to check your NSFAS wallet balance.

Let's get started.

There are two options available for checking how much cash you have left in your NSFAS wallet.

1. Online via the Internet

This the most affordable and simplest way of checking your wallet cash balance.

Simply visit and follow these simple steps:

That's it. On the transactions page, you'll see your history and the remaining balance on your wallet or allowance by NSFAS, if you've qualified.

Sometimes students struggle to log into the system due to incorrect or outdated information. So always ensure your contact details are updated so that it'll be easier for you to request a password reset.

2. Via USSD

This option only requires you to use a phone device, no internet connection is required for this process.

  • Dial *134*176# on your phone

Again, the last option will display your NSFAS cash allowance balance.
