JUST IN: Students’ Loan Application For State Owned Higher Institutions Postponed

The Management of the Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND), has announced a 14-day postponement of the application process for student loans for state institutions due to low data submissions.

A statement by the Head, Media and Public Relations, Nasir Ayitogo, on Tuesday, said the decision was necessitated by the failure of several state-owned institutions, to upload the required student data and fee information to the NELFUND Student Verification System (SVS).

To date, it said only a limited number of state-owned institutions have completed the data submission process. These include 20 state universities out of 48, 12 state colleges out of 54, and 2 state polytechnics out of 49.

It said, “While we acknowledge the efforts of these institutions, the failure to submit data from the remaining state institutions poses significant challenges to ensuring a seamless and accurate verification process for student loan applicants.

The application window, initially set to open on June 25, 2024, will now commence on July 10, 2024.

The extension will provide additional time for state institutions to comply with the data submission requirements, and ensure their students can benefit from the Federal Government student loan scheme.

To facilitate an efficient and error-free application process, NELFUND said it is crucial that all state institutions provide complete and accurate information.

This includes JAMB numbers, matriculation numbers, admission numbers, full names, level, faculties, departments, duration of program, fees and gender of all eligible students.
