Central University of Technology response to the payment of student allowances

The Central University of Technology, Free State has noted with dismay the slew of false information being peddled to the public by some students. To date 10 306 students’ allowances were paid through FUNDI. 789 students have problems with their bank accounts, while 702 students have no banking details on the FUNDI system.

Although the University is aware of students’ grievances, it is important to note that management has been working in conjunction with the SRC in efforts to resolve these grievances.

Payment of student allowances has been taking place from Friday, 2 July 2021, the information of 3 693 students has been finalized, and they started receiving their money from Saturday, 3 July 2021 until Monday, 5 July 2021.

The University has been paying for these NSFAS allowances from its own funds. While the risk is acknowledged, CUT has done this to ensure that the academic year is not disrupted due to the financial situations of students.

CUT understands the plight of students, however while we work to ensure they have received their allowances, their assistance is needed as some students’ details are not correct or complete. Students need to ensure that the University has their correct details, including banking details.

Management further wishes to condemn this intentional misinformation on social media as a malicious attempt to confuse the higher education sector and communities in the region, as well as to discredit the university’s genuine attempt to provide its students with a quality higher education.
