UWC Government Fee Adjustment Grant Portal

Author: UWC

UWC has launched its new Government Fee Adjustment Grant Portal​

The University of the Western Cape Council at its meeting of 14th December 2016 took a decision, after much deliberation, to increase tuition and residence fees by 8% for the 2017 academic year. The 8% increase is in line with the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) recommendation to universities not to implement a fee increase of more than 8%.

The DHET has introduced a fee adjustment grant of 8% for 2017 (this is not a loan).This grant is an intervention to pay for the fee adjustment of 8% for students with a gross combined family income of up to R600 000 per annum.

Students with a gross combined family income of up to R600 000 per annum will be required to apply for the DHET grant. Please complete the online application via this link:

Please Note: Only  South  African  citizens  and  citizens  with  a  permanent  South  African  residency  studying  towards  an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification in 2017 will be considered​.​
