Graduates and students of the University of Guyana, who fail to repay tuition fees, will soon be barred from leaving the country, Finance Minister, Winston Jordan announced Friday.

Jordan also announced interest reduction packages for those who make arrangements to repay their loans by August and September, 2016.

In keeping with a wide-ranging audit report into the operations of the Student Loan Agency, the “Jubilee offer” will be a 75 percent reduction in the accumulated arrears of interest if borrowers pay their indebtedness no later than August 31, 2016 or a 50 percent reduction in accumulated arrears of interest if borrowers bring their accounts up to date by September 30, 2016.

Since the inception of the Student Loan Agency in 1994, at least GYD$9.5 billion made available to the revolving agency to facilitate the payment of tuition fees.

Up to May, 2016 figures show that 26,239 loans have been issued but  repayment up the same period amounted to GYD$1.75 billion, with installments due amounting to GYD$5.7 billion.

    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this web site before
    but after browsing through a few of the articles I realized it’s new to me.
    Anyhow, I’m definitely happy I discovered it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!

    mention how they believe. At all times go after your heart.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve
    got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    You know so much its almost tough to argue with you (not
    that I really would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a fresh spin on a topic which has been written about for decades.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting
    videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
