Student finance: awaiting confirmation?Watch
I've been enrolled at my university for over 2 weeks now and have been officially attending the PGCE course since Thursday & I still have no student finance payment which was scheduled for the 3rd of September. It is now almost a week past that date and it is still showing as 'awaiting confirmation' from the university. Any ideas why there appears to be no communication between the university and student finance?
If your payment schedule is still showing as 'awaiting confirmation' that means your university have not contacted us and told us that you have enrolled on your course. You should contact them directly and ask them to send this to us as soon as possible.
Apparently it's because I'm on a new course, PGCE secondary PE with Ebacc. Which doesn't match up on student finance.
If you need to update your course details you can do so from your online account here; http://ow.ly/sDWQ30kZf4i
To make this change you can login to your account and click 'Change your application'.
Once your Change of Circumstance has been processed the university will then need to confirm your registration for your new course before we can release your payments.
Hi, I have the same problem. However, I have not changed course. I applied for my finance as soon as the applications opened so that this didn't happen. I am a third year and have never experienced this before. I enrolled as usual and have confirmation of this. I am a mature student with bills and children to support. I am not very pleased to wake up this morning and find out I have not been paid my finance. Like I've said, I have bills contingent on this income and I am now in a difficult financial situation. I have emailed my personal tutor with my entitlement letter and confirmation of enrolment and asked him to send it to yous ASAP. However, this should all be done as I done this well in advance so that I wasn't in this position. SFE, can you tell me why this has occurred this time and when I'll be paid.
I'm having the same issue if that helps, I assume due to COVID-19 and not many workers they have to update their system once they've received confirmation. My uni had said they confirmed since last week but I suppose we are living in unprecedented times it may take much longer than usual which isn't our fault. they aren't even answering their phones either i reckon this could take up to two weeks (this is just a guess)
If your online account under the 'Your Finance' http://ow.ly/hqFS30ptSwp section still states 'Awaiting Confirmation', we require your University to send Confirmation of Registration (CoR) electronically to us. Please ask them to send this through.
We will process this within 24-48 hours of receipt and then your online payment schedule will update, confirming the new payment date. The normal timescale once this is received is up to 5 working days to clear into your bank if a payment is due.
We are unable to release funding until your university send this to us.
