Student Loan: NELFUND to release data of institutions June 24


The Nigeria Education Loan Fund, NELFUND has announced that the full list of institutions that have submitted their student data for upload onto the agency’s Student Verification System, SVS portal will be published on June 24.

The list which comprises 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.

Nasir Ayitogo, Head, Media and Public Relations made the disclosure Thursday in a press statement sent to journalists in Abuja.

The statement noted that many federal institutions have already completed the exercise having been the first wave , whilst the process of uploading the data to the agency’s 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  applicants full names and dates of birth, will support the evaluation process,” Mr. Ayitogo said.

NELFUND urged applicants to enter their data into the portal accurately when applying, and to ensure that their email addresses are entered without error.
