Student loan

The management of the Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) has stated its plan to unveil the complete list of institutions that have submitted their student data to the NELFUND Student Verification System (SVS) portal on June 24, 2024.

The fund made this known in a statement by its Head, Media and Public Relations, Mr Nasir Ayitogo, in Abuja on Thursday.

The fund said the list of both federal and state-owned institutions would be published on the NELFUND Student Verification System (SVS) to ensure transparency and to encourage due access and participation in the scheme.

It added that the list is for undergraduate applicants and tertiary institutions.

“It is commendable that many federal institutions have already completed the exercise, having been the first wave.

“The process of uploading the data to NELFUND Student Verification System (SVS) is currently ongoing for the state owned institutions.

“In order for applicants to be able to access the fund, the individual’s details must feature in institution’s submitted data set sent to the NELFUND SVS, where automatic applicant verification can then occur seamlessly,” the fund said.

The fund added that failure to have this verification would invalidate the application process and disadvantage applicants.

It said it was therefore critical that the information provided by the tertiary institutions be not only complete but also accurate.

“The correlation or matching of JAMB numbers, matriculation numbers, and admission numbers, as well as applicants full names and dates of birth, will support the evaluation process.

“Applicants are urged to enter their data into the portal accurately when applying and to ensure that their email addresses are entered without error,” it added.

The fund expressed delight in the cooperation it had received from tertiary institutions at both state and federal levels across the nation. (NAN)
