The Nigerian Education Loan Fund (NELFUND) says it will publish the full list of institutions that have submitted their complete student data for the student verification system (SVS) portal.

On May 24, the NELFUND portal went live and became accessible to students of federal tertiary institutions.

The agency had earlier said over 90 per cent of federal institutions of higher learning have submitted their students data to the fund.

At the time, NELFUND had also said the applications for state owned institutions would tentatively be be open on June 25, depending on the progress of students data upload by the institutions.


In a statement on Thursday signed by Nasir Ayitogo, NELFUND spokesperson, the agency said the list, which will comprise of both federal and state institutions, will be published on June 24.

Ayitogo said this would ensure transparency, and encourage due access and participation in the scheme of both undergraduate applicants and tertiary institutions.

“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,” the statement reads.


“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 recieved from the tertiary institutions, at both state and federal level across the nation.”
