NELFUND to publish schools with complete data submissions for students’ verification

By Nudoiba Ojen

The management of Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) will publish on June 24 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.

NELFUND said, “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.

This was contained in a statement on Thursday by the Head, Media and Public Relations, NELFUND, Nasir Ayitogo.

Ayitogo stated, “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 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.

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