All Paid HELB Batch Numbers So Far

Last week, KBC reported that the government had released Ksh14.4 billion to HELB, the Higher Education Loans Board, for disbursement to universities and TVET accounts as scholarship awards to first years and loans to continuing students.

Since then, HELB has been actively sending money to these institutions, and the tuition fees section of HELB beneficiaries in the Higher Education Financing (HEF) portal is moving from Allocated to Disbursement in Progress, and for some, with earlier approved batch numbers, have been paid.

What is a batch number example in HELB?

Well, HELB uses the batch code system to keep track of successful HELB applicants set to receive money for tuition and upkeep to keep track of all paid and pending accounts for efficiency.

A typical HELB batch number would be similar to 5113 or 5050. It is four numbered and awarded in cohorts, not individually, and not based on where students learn but on the time of loan approval.

From today, January 22, 2024, HELB will be disbursing funds to students’ accounts with batch numbers such as 5310 and 5308, and some of them have been told to check their bank accounts and Mpesa Surepay in 48-72 hours.
