Hi!
You can still apply for a maintenance loan now, but you may only receive the minimum amount in time for the start of term. Applications take up to 6 weeks to be processed. At the start of term they may give you the minimum loan, if you are eligible, so that you have some money. If you qualify for more than the minimum maintenance loan this probably won't be given to you until later on in the year because of the 6 week processing period.
It shouldn't affect your tuition loan as that has already been confirmed (I assume?).
Hope this helps!

Thank you ! And with the maintence loan application can I upload the forms digitally or do I have to post them?

Also if I apply tomorrow for the maintenance roughly how long will it take to process!

Digital is fine. But, if they're signed digitally (with an X), don't print that out and send it, because they'll wait 6 months before telling you that the signature isn't right... :grumble:

Once all my evidence was sent in it took them a little over a month to re-assess the application and change my maintenance loan.

Yes I have a question with the forms online everything is digital however for the signature parts I can’t seem to sign it online. I don’t know whether I should print sign and then take photos and upload. As there is no option to digitally sign where there is the X

Is this for a current-year income assessment form?

Yes so all the forms I have to fill in for the maintence loan require a signature but you can not do it through the computer.

Then just print it, sign it and send it in by post. They take at least a month to process it, so what's two days in the post going to do?

Ok that’s what I’ll do. I just am worried that if I apply for maintence it may affect my Tuition loan dates that have been approved .

How should I sign it as you said if it has an X don’t send it. I was planning to print and upload but what’s wrong with signing next to the X

The X goes in place of the signature for digital uploads.
The reason being, that if you just send a CYI form in the post, that could come from anyone - hence why there's the signature. But if you upload it online, they already know it's coming from this account and it's been done by the right person.

What I did, which I shouldn't have done, was send it in the post where it just had an X as the signature.
