Notice about false information on social media

26 October 2017 | 13:40

Dear students and colleagues

A notice about the UCT Financial Aid Office withholding student financial aid has been circulating on social media today.

Please ignore this notice as it is not true. The bank file for allowances is at the Financial Aid Office and is being processed for today as per the scheduled payment date.

UCT only communicates to the campus community about university-wide matters via official channels, in communiques such as campus announcements and From the VC’s Desk. Please be wary of fake news on social media, especially in a time of heightened tensions.

Please note that information about services that are affected is constantly updated on the UCT News website.
