Continuing students - Notice

If you are a student with no names on the TESAS-approved list of continuing students, here is what the department had to say...
Be advised that students whose name do not appear on the list will appear on the Supplementary List which will be published soon.
DHERST did not say exactly when the supplementary list will be published. In anticipation of the list coming out, please check the department's website. 

The Department of Higher Education, DHERST, had appealed to the 'institutions who do not submit the list of continuing students to the department are advised to do so before the end of January 2020'. [Press Release, 03/01/2020]

What does TESAS mean?

TESAS stands for Tertiary Education Students Assistance Scheme. There are two categories of TESAS. See this post for more info on TESAS

Perhaps new and continuing students at all tertiary institutions must be up-to-date with the changes that are happening at present. Especially, the changes to TESAS and the introduction of the HELP student loan scheme.

One suggestion is to check the latest updates on the HELP scheme at DHERST website. The department has some updates on the changes in higher education tuition and the purported student loan scheme. Here is an online news article by NBC News (Reposted) - READ MORE. Some key points are listed in bullet points below.
