Good News To University Students About HELB Amid Government Plans To Increase Fees

Early childhood education is Kenya's foundation for formal education. The youngster will spend two years at this level before elementary school under the new CBC curriculum.

"8-4-4" students spent eight years in elementary school before moving on to high schools and colleges. The new CBC curriculum requires only six years of primary school before moving to junior high. They'll finish junior high, then senior high, then college.

HELB will lend you money to a university in Kenya if you have the grades but not the funds.

Kenyan universities require a C+ or above on the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE).

The government granted loans to college-bound students. The government expects students to repay these loans as soon as they graduate and get jobs.

Since these borrowers started working, the federal government has deducted loan payments from their salaries.

Students who took out HELB loans can now repay them through Mpesa instead of waiting for pay deductions.

Students require their Ir ID Number to make a loan payment using Mpesa playbill 200800.

To help stabilize financially unstable public universities, the government and their vice-chancellors are considering tripling tuition rates.

If the plan is implemented, universities will increase tuition from Sh 16,000 per semester to Sh 48,000 beginning in the middle of next year.

On September 23rd, at a meeting at Jogoo house attended by high-ranking representatives from the Ministry of Education and the administrations of all public universities, the proposal was given a boost.
