Student Loan: NELFUND Onboards 36 State-Owned Institutions (Full LIST Inside)


The Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) has announced its enrolment of 36 state-owned tertiary institutions on its student loan portal.

A social media post on NELFUND’s on Sunday directed students to start applying for student loans effective today, 7th July 2024

The post says, “The management of these institutions have successfully submitted their student data to the NELFUND Student Verification System (SVS).

“We urge all other state-owned tertiary institutions to submit their complete student data to the NELFUND Student Verification System timely to enable their students benefit from the scheme.”

In May, NELFUND acknowledged the difficulties some students encountered with the Student Loan Application portal.

The fund provided detailed solutions to the various challenges and advised students whose institutions were not listed on the portal to contact their school’s ICT department.

“This step aims to ensure that all eligible institutions are included in the portal, allowing more students to apply for loans without hindrance,” the fund said.

As a result of these challenges, the Fund had limited the rollout phase of the student loan program to federal institutions, leaving students from state-owned institutions temporarily unable to apply.

NELFUND advised such students to hold on for further announcements as the program would expand to include state-owned institutions in subsequent phases.

For those unable to verify their accounts via email, NELFUND had emphasised the importance of entering the correct email address.
