NELFUND to Publish list of Institutions With Verifiable Student Data

By Jack Acheme, Abuja


The Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND), says it is set to publish the full list of institutions that have submitted their complete student data, as requested by the agency, for upload into the NELFUND Student Verification System (SVS) portal on the 24th of June, 2024.

Head of Media and Public Relations of NELFUND, Nasir Ayitogo in a statement on Thursday, said the Publication of a list of both Federal and State-owned institutions will ensure transparency, and encourage due access and participation in the scheme by both undergraduate applicants and tertiary institutions in the critical exercise.

He commended many federal institutions that 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 the institution’s submitted data 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.

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