I registered with my uni yesterday and today my payment status for my first payment changed from awaiting confirmation to payment in progress, where it says it will be made within 2-3 days of the expected payment date, which was the 12th of September. I called for clarification on when I'll receive my payments and was told the payment had been submitted but the line cut out before I could get further answers for my question.
As far as I've gathered (I haven't paid much attention to the stages of payments in previous years as it wasn't delayed and I had no reason to worry) payment in progress is the stage before submitted, but my account is still telling me the payment is in progress, so is it possible that it just hasn't been changed on my account? And if the payment has been submitted, when can I expect to receive it as I have rent due this weekend and I'm likely going to need to ask my landlord for an extension of a couple of days and I'd like to give him an estimate of when it will come through?
The payment status "payment in progress" means that the payment has left SLC and will be paid into your account within two to three working days when you spoke to an adviser who state that the has been submitted it means the same status that the payment is on its way to your account.
The status will change to "paid" once it has reached your account.
