However, the Higher Education Loans and Scholarships Board (HELSB) reserves the right to determine the actual level of the loan.

Loans are awarded according to HELSB’s financial capacity and, therefore, admission to the university does not necessarily guarantee the applicant a GRZ student loan. Applicants are, however, advised to submit any documents that support their application.

The student loan is not transferable from one University to another. Students wishing to apply for the loan should, therefore, be clear in their applications.
