  • The Higher Education Loans Board (HELB) has announced 29 drop-off points where first-time loan applicants can submit their forms.

    In a statement released by HELB on Monday, August 15, the board announced that the main centre would be at its Headquarters located at Anniversary Towers, Nairobi.

    However, in the event that applicants cannot access the premises, they may hand in their duly filled forms at the Nairobi General Post Office (GPO) or at designated Huduma Centres.

    "Where can I drop my completed First Time loan application form? At Mezzanine 1 Floor at Anniversary Towers. If you are far, drop your completed forms at select Huduma Centres across the country," the HELB statement read in part.

    The Anniversary Towers may be temporarily inaccessible to the public because it also hosts the headquarters of the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), which is currently conducting the General Election.

    Students from Kisumu, Mombasa and Nakuru cities can drop their forms at centres located at the new Nyanza Regional Headquarters, Posta Pension Towers and Nakuru GPO respectively.

    Other Huduma Centres are in Bomet, Bungoma, Garissa, Chuka, Kakamega, Kisii, Kitale, Kitui, Lodwar, Machakos, Makueni and Meru Towns.

    Forms can also be dropped at designated points in Migori, Murang'a , Nakuru, Nandi, Narok, Nyeri, Taita Taveta, Thika, and West Pokot towns.

    On July 27, HELB opened applications for students admitted to universities and tertiary institutions under the Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) programmes.

    The application would be done through its official website www(dot)helb(dot)co(dot)ke, and gave the following instructions:

    "Print two copies of the duly filled application form. Ensure you preview the form and correct where necessary before you submit for printing. Have the forms appropriately filled and signed where necessary.

    "Present one copy of the duly filled form and all the attached support documents at any of the Huduma centers."
