The Student Loan Agency was established in 1994 by the Government of Guyana, to enable all students who have been accepted but are financially unable otherwise, to attend the University of Guyana.
Loans are issued to all Guyanese students for all undergraduate programs offered by the University and are granted on the fulfilment of loan criteria.
During 1994, the issuance of loans were handled by the University of Guyana however in 1995, the Student Loan Agency became a department of the Ministry of Finance through which all policy decisions are made.
In 2015, the decision was made to strengthen the revolving nature of this fund thereby allowing future generations of prospective students to benefit as debtors repay their loans.
