What’s it all about?

Recently, President Bola Tinubu brought the Student Loan Bill to life. The goal? To help Nigerian students who need financial support for their higher education. But the big question is, how do you qualify for this loan? Let’s find out!

How to Qualify

  1. Income Level: First off, your income or your family’s income should be less than NGN 500,000 per year. This loan is mainly for those who need financial help.
  2. Guarantors: Next, you’ll need two people to vouch for you. These people could be senior civil servants, a lawyer with ten years of experience, a judicial officer, or a Justice of Peace.

Paying Back the Loan

Sure, getting a loan is great, but remember, you’ll need to pay it back. How does it work? You start paying back two years after finishing National Youth Service Corps (NYSC). If you have a job, 10% of your salary will be used to pay back the loan. If you’re self-employed, you’ll pay back 10% of your profit.

Rules and Penalties

The Nigerian Education Bank will be in charge of giving out the student loans. The law says that anyone who doesn’t pay back their loan, or helps others to avoid paying, could go to jail for two years or have to pay a N500,000 fine.
