    SF won't be informed about your online registration.

    Online registration for my current uni, just means that they have a closer approximation of student numbers so that timetables, student records, student email/systems access etc can be set up. There are different droput points; not everyone who accepted an offer will turn up. Online registration during the summer is just a preliminary admin process. Enrollment on campus is when you effectively commit to your course and that is what triggers SF payments..

    Your uni has to confirm that you have physically turned up on campus to start your course. For most unis, this will mean that you enrol in person at a set date/time, usually during Freshers or Induction Week. You uni will send this info nearer the time. Once the uni has satisfied themselves that you are actually attending, then they will inform SF and SF will release your money. If your uni, SF and the banking system are on the ball, your funds should arrive in your bank account a few working days after you enrol on campus.
