    • ACS = Continuing education
    • DCS = Regular training program
    • DVS = Vocational training
  4. Program codes:

    Please take note that there are no periods between letters and numbers in program codes.

    For example: Instead of NTA.1J, write NTA1J


    Program codes use the letter “o,” rather than the number “zero.”

    For example: 410D0

    Once your application for financial assistance has been made, any additional documents (including declarations) will be provided to you.

    Important :To reduce waiting time, it’s very important to send the cover sheet with applications.

Written applications for financial assistance :

Students without permanent codes have to apply for financial assistance in writing. Forms are available at Inter-Dec College or on the AFE website.

The final step:

Once your application has been accepted and your studies have started, a guaranteed certificate is lodged directly on your account on the AFE website. You will have to print the certificate and give it to your financial institution. The money will be in your account five business days after you’ve submitted this certificate.
