Repayment of HELB LOANS
HELB was established with the aim of not just recovering all matured loans, but to raise sufficient funds to meet the rising loan demand and attain faster turnaround in loan repayments.
It consists of three tiers:
- Undergraduate section, which deals with recovery of undergraduate loans
- Jielimishe Loan section that is charged with the responsibility of disbursing and recovering of loans from salaried students.
- Allocation section charged with the responsibility of collection and updates of loanees’ accounts.
The Debt Management Department is committed to recovering all matured loans with utmost diligence in line with the HELB Act 1995 and in conformity with the dynamic customer expectations.
Repaying your Student Loan
Undergraduate Loan Repayment starts within one year of completion of studies or within such a period as the Board decides to recall the loan whichever is earlier. However, you can make voluntary payments before or after you complete your studies to reduce your loan balance.
