Still haven't received my Notification of Entitlement letter from Student Finance.Watch
Everything else is sorted. My online account says what money I'm entitled to and the dates my loans/grants will be paid.
So what's going on
Last year I needed to hand in the letter at Uni so they could scan it and confirm my attendance, so I could get paid. Last year I got no money until the end of December Pleaseee not again!!
I'm going to phone them in the morning. Worried!! I totally forgot all about needing a letter, aaah!!
Also, when I had to do a pre-enrolment online, the Uni didn't seem to know anything about me paying my Tuition Fees using Student Finance. However, the Uni website was having technical difficulties.
I've just phoned them and they said my letter was sent on the 15th and I should get it 10 days after. If that includes Saturdays, then I should get it next Monday (the day I'm back at Uni). If it doesn't include weekends at all, then I won't get it in time for Uni.
However, they gave me a Student Support Number and told me to give the Uni that when I go to enrol, so the Uni know my application is being processed. I asked if I would still get my Student Finance on time and she said yes. So fingers crossed!!
This might prove to be quite productive, as in my experience, the SLC do have a habit of needlessly blaming the university for any delays, or just saying everything is okay when it isn’t, just to get students off the phone.
With that in mind, check with your university that they have received a SSAR (pronounced ‘sar’) file from the SLC. This is sent to the uni once the loan is ready, and is usually a pretty good indicator of whether the loan is actually ready to be paid or not.
you can print it off online on ur SF. its under view correspondence
