    I'm trying to apply for my tuition fees and the maintenance loan, the tuition fees i have no problems with but when it come to the maintenance loan it's only offering me half of the the maximum amount, the calculator on the website says i'm entitled to the maximum as my household income is well below £25k. Any ideas what to do?

    Have your parents completed their financial assessment section yet? Where they put in their income from the previous tax year?

    An automated e-mail should have been sent out to them to the e-mail address you provided when you put in their details.

    I'm over 25 so they don't have to fill anything in.

    Hi AlaithRose,

    If you have indicated on your application that you are an independent student and over 25, your entitlement amount will change when the processing department approves your application, you can check the progress of this on your online account, applications are normally taking amount 4-6 weeks to process.

    Thanks

    Catherine
