It’s almost time for students to start their courses and we want to make sure they know what to do to get their student finance on time.
Students must register at their university or college before we can make their first student finance payment. Once it’s confirmed that they’ve registered, we’ll pay any Maintenance Loan they’re entitled to into their bank account – it can take three working days for the money to reach their account – and we’ll pay their Tuition Fee Loan directly to their university or college.
Our Getting Paid playlist explains what steps they need to take to get their money in time for the start of their course. It can be shared on your website and across your social media channels to help make sure students know what they need to do to get paid as quickly as possible – https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4wogSHG9Pv_ms0a7p7lqJQ7-A5ZoNGuN
The student finance zone also has some tips on how students can make sure they get their money in time for the start of their course – http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/content.php?r=6299-Getting-paid-2016-17
Beware of phishing scams
Fraudsters often target students around payment dates at the start of term. Make sure your students are aware of potentially fraudulent emails from anyone claiming to be from Student Finance England – we’ll never ask them to confirm their bank details or login information by email.
If your students have any questions about their student finance payment or anything to do with student finance they can ask our experts on the student finance zone from 1-4pm, Tuesday to Thursday.
We’re also available on Twitter – @SF_England – and Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/SFEngland/ – between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday. Students just need to send their questions to #AskSFE – it’s that easy.
