Hi. I appreciate if anyone can answer my questions please. I applied for student finance and in the part of help for living cost I asked for higher and submitted that, and my parents got the emails to fill it. Now I find out that depends on my family income I'm not eligible for higher help for living cost. Is there any way to make it correct? Am I still eligible for standard help for living cost? And finally if I can make it right online through my account, what my parents should do about the emails they have already received? Thanks.

Hi there,

Are you no longer requesting to be assessed for the higher amount of Maintenance Loan funding using your parents financial income details?

Thanks, Angela.

Yes, I filled the form when the applying for student finance opened and I still want the tuition fee and standard maintenance for cost of living but not higher maintenance. As I told before based on my family incomes (that's a little bit higher than threshold ) so I don't think I'm eligible. I appreciate if you answer my questions in my previous post please.

Hi there,

Apologies, if your household income exceeds the threshold you would only receive the standard amount of Maintenance Loan and the Tuition Fee Loan.

Thanks, Angela.

I already submitted my student finance application and don't know how to correct it? Do my parents should answer the link questions from their emails even if I can change from higher to standard amount of Maintenance loan ?

Hi there,

If no parental details are received we will automatically assess you for the standard amount of funding or you can send us a letter advising that you wish to be Non Means tested only.

Thanks, Angela.

Hi there,

There is no deadline for parents details to be provided the deadline is for student applications to be received.

Thanks, Angela.

Hi. I passed all the information you gave me to my parents. Luckily I got an offer from uni in our city so will live home. I thought it's just a minimum and a maximum amount for Maintenance Loan but then I found a table that shows it's a range. What you consider incomes it's before tax, is it right?

We would require your parents gross income information to support your application. Thanks, Karen
