Hey guys, I'm new to this forum so kinda unsure if I've posted this under the right thing

I start a HND in Creative Media on the 24th of this month. I chose a HND due to family issues and wanting to stay at home, I intend to go to University to complete my degree after 2 years.

Anyway, I was told to apply for student finance which I did back in May. Ever since around August I've had 'approved' stamped next to my payments. My first maintenance loan date is meant to be on the 14th of this month, so a week today.

I saw that no money would be paid to me until I enrolled with the college. I enrolled on the 1st of September and took my finance details with me. The man who enrolled me said he didn't want to see my finance details (For whatever reason?) and I've had no updates from student finance to tell me that they know I've enrolled. I'm very concerned as I need the money to buy supplies that I simply don't have the money for. I've been browsing this forum and apparently it should've been paid to me two or three days after I enrolled, but obviously it wasn't. Should I wait until the 14th to contact someone?

Thanks for any replies in advance, sorry if I sound dumb, I'm new to this.

Try contacting student finance and ask them, only they can tell you the date you should definitely get the money. At least then you won't be worrying and will know for certain

It doesn't mean you get paid after you have enrolled, it is basically if you enrol before the payment date then you can expect it to be on the day of the payment date they've given you.
If you check your online account on the 10th/11th it should then have the status as submitted if you are going to get paid on time.
