Student finance application deadline worry/confusion

    I have just sent off my online application, but have just found out that I need to send off a form agreeing to terms and conditions and also my Mum might need to reply to an email they send as well regarding financial stuff. This sounds so stupid, but have I applied or is it only when I've sent off all of this final stuff that I have applied? I know the deadline is the 27th, I was just wondering if all of this needs to reach them by this date as well. (I'm sure it will!) I also heard that there is 6 week waiting list for my application to be processed. I'm guessing it's ok if my application isn't processed by the deadline of the 27th right? Just as long as it has been submitted by this date.
    I've just had a sudden panic that the money won't be ready in time for the start of uni. Sorry!


    It's when you submit your application, not when it's complete. You've already met the deadline.

    In any case, it's not a deadline for applications - you can apply up to nine months after the start of your course. 27th May is the last submission date when SF will guarantee your funds will be in place for the start of the academic year. After that, you get your money when it suits them, depending on how busy they are.
