Loan beneficiaries are strongly advised not to transfer from one HEI to another or from one programme to another unless it is inevitable. Loan transfer will be effected upon receiving confirmation from relevant authorities.

HESLB shall not raise a duplicate loan payment to students who voluntarily move to other HEIs. Unless there is a strong supporting clarification for a late submission of transfer confirmation, no loan transfer will be made after 120 days from the date of release of the first batch of admission.

Transfers will not trigger any change on the initial loan amounts allocated to individual beneficiaries unless the student was transferred by authorities.
