TERTIARY Education Loan Scheme chairman Dixon Seeto says while many students are being proactive with their applications, there are still those who are waiting for things to happen.
Speaking after a teleconference yesterday with parents and students, Mr Seeto said students needed to check with their institutions first regarding their placements.
"Students need to be a lot more proactive, many are and we appreciate that but there are many that are waiting for things to happen," Mr Seeto said.
He said there was a mixture of existing and new students who were patched into the conference.
"Some were asked to just check with their universities first because many of the decisions are already with them.
"And students should always check there first because there is some documentation involved in signing forms and bonds and if it's not with the universities, then they can come and see us at our offices."
Mr Seeto said during the teleconference many students wanted to clarify what assistance they could get and this included queries on housing, transport, book allowances as well as clarifications on guarantors.
