    Hi,

    I need my household income to be assessed by Student Finance, but I am only applying for the tuition loan, not the maintenance loan, so it isn't asking for my financial details. I was informed that I could still have it assessed by selecting the maintenance loan option and setting it at zero pounds to be borrowed, but the application does not seem to allow me to do that.

    Is it possible to share my income details without applying for a maintenance loan?

    It's not possible. The tuition fee loan isn't based on household income, therefore, student finance have no reason to ask for your household income.

    Thanks Tiger.

    The university itself offers means-tested grants based on SFE assessing household income and the information being shared to them (the uni).

    Hi there.

    When you apply online it will ask you if you want to include parents details and who you have most contact with first of all.

    If you do not want the maintenance loan then do not select this, you will still be prompted to supply parental income details without this.

    Thanks

    Hi Mark, thanks for the reply.

    I tried not selecting the maintenance loan and it comes up with this message: "As you've not applied for any additional Maintenance Loan or grants we don't need you to provide any further financial information."

    It's my own (and spouse's) income that would be assessed - not sure if that makes a difference?

    Is it possible to provide all my details with a paper application and explanation if there is no online option for this?

    Thanks.
