NB:  The SLB only funds applicants who are fully matriculated to a course of study. If a programme requires that a student is to complete pre-requisites or courses/ additional subjects in order to be fully enrolled as a tertiary level student in the institution, the SLB will not fund the period/ year in which the student is completing the pre-requisites.  It must be noted that if your acceptance letter indicates that you are "Conditionally Accepted" or you are required to enter into "General Studies" or you can enter the programme "Pending" a grade in a particular subject, you are considered by the SLB to have not fully matriculated and as such will not be funded through the SLB.
