The management of Nigerian Education Loan Fund, NELFUND, says it will publish list of institutions that have submitted full data of their students for verification on June 24, 2024.

The fund, in a statement, Thursday, by its Head, Media and Public Relations, Nasir Ayitogo, explained that the list of both federal and state owned institutions will be published to ensure transparency and to encourage due access and participation in the student’s loan scheme.

According to NELFUND, “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 statement reads in full: “The management of Nigerian Education Loan Fund, NELFUND, is   announcing that the full list of institutions that have submitted their complete student data, as requested by the agency, for upload onto the NELFUND Student Verification System (SVS) portal will be published on the 24th of June, 2024.

“This list of both Federal and State owned institutions will be published to ensure transparency and to encourage due access and participation in the scheme, of both undergraduate applicants, and tertiary institutions in this critical exercise.

“It is commendable that many federal institutions have already completed the exercise having been the first wave, whilst the process of uploading the data to NELFUND 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.

“Failure to have this verification would invalidate the application process and disadvantage applicants.

“It is therefore critical that the information provided by the tertiary institutions is not only complete, but also accurate.

“The correlation or matching of JAMB numbers, Matriculation numbers and Admission numbers as well as applicant’s 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.

“NELFUND has expressed its delight in the cooperation it has received from the tertiary institutions, at both state and federal level across the nation. “
