Q: When can one apply for a HELB loan?
Ans: HELB places advertisements in the print media in which it invites applications for loans. The Board maintains a deadline and those applications received after the deadline without justifiable reasons are not processed.
Q: When are loan awards released?
Ans: HELB releases loan results before the new academic year starts. Thereafter, students who fail to secure a loan or are awarded inadequate amounts are encouraged to appeal. Each appeal is reviewed on its own merit.
If one fails to get a loan, the following could be possible reasons:
The student may not have provided adequate information about him/herself as requested.
The student may have provided false information on the loan application form.
