Reminder to apply for student finance as soon as possible

Tuesday 26 April 2016

The deadline for continuing students to apply to Student Finance England is Friday 24 June 2016. The quickest and easiest way to apply is online at www.gov.uk/studenfinance. Reapply for your student finance as soon as possible to make sure you have your money when you return to your course.

Reapplying for student finance is easy

You can go online and re-apply for student finance as soon as possible. You need to print out the declaration form, sign it and return it to us. Once Student Finance have processed your application they will send you your Student Finance Entitlement letter.

If you applied for Disabled Students’ Allowances (DSAs) last year along with your student finance, you won’t need to re-apply for DSAs every year. If you only applied for DSAs last year, they will send you the form to reapply. If you’re applying for DSAs for the first time, you’ll need to download the form from www.gov.uk/studentfinance, or ask for a copy from Student Finance.

You need to fill in your application for student finance by Friday 24 June 2016 to be sure you have your money when you start your course. If you apply after this date, you might not get all your money in time for the start of your course, but Student Finance will try to make an initial assessment so you’ll have some money as close to the start of your course as possible.
