so my question is do i need to reapply for DSA's or do i just skip that part on the student finance form?
Question: For returning students who have applied for DSA in previous years, do they need to re-apply?
Answer: No. The only students who need to re-apply for DSA each year are students who are part time, post graduate or ‘DSA only’ students (i.e. students who are not applying for maintenance loans / grants or a tuition fee loan). These students need to apply each year by completing the DSA1 form available on direct.gov.co.uk.
Undergraduate students who are applying for maintenance loans / grants and / or a tuition fee loan do not need to complete a DSA1 form to renew their application for DSA. Support will automatically be in place for each year of their course as per the recommendations of the Needs Assessment report. Any general allowance claims need to be accompanied by the claim form which is downloadable from the direct.gov website and submitted with the receipts. This will only cease if the student withdraws, suspends or transfers and the DSA Team has to review the Needs Assessment recommendations.
