    Advice from the Student Loan Company

    To make sure that you get your money as soon as possible:

    • Make sure that you have submitted your application!
    • Sign into your online account and check the application tracker in case there is anything else they need from you
    • While signed into your online account, check that your bank details are correct; please do this at least 4 days before payment is expected
    • If you have applied after the deadline, don't worry, you should still receive funding provided that you have supplied any evidence requested and the application is approved. The Student Finance companies' websites have more information for late applications for students from England and Wales

    There is further information about payments on the Student Finance companies' websites for students from England and Wales, and they post important updates on their social media pages.
