KUALA LUMPUR (July 14): The National Higher Education Fund Corporation (PTPTN) provides various online facilities to ensure its customers are not affected although its counters are closed nationwide following the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to a PTPTN statement today, customers who wish to obtain services for loan applications and repayments, the opening of new accounts or making additional deposits to National Education Savings Scheme (SSPN) accounts are recommended to use PTPTN’s various online facilities.
“These efforts are in line with PTPTN’s desire towards comprehensive digitalisation in end-to-end public delivery service,” it said.
Applications for education loans can also be made online via PTPTN’s official portal and loan advance payment (WPP) can also be checked at www.ptptn.gov.my.

“Following the pandemic, PTPTN has also provided flexibility by extending the delivery period of the documents, which was announced through PTPTN’s official portal. However, students are encouraged to submit their documents according to the stipulated period,” said PTPTN.
