Early Student Finance payment request

Can you request Student Finance to send your scheduled maintenance loan payment at an earlier time ? As in exceptional case I was told you can request a hardship payment from SLC.

Hi Damian,

Not for your first payment as we require the university to release this to make the payment. We schedule the first payment for the first day of your term. You can request 2nd and 3rd payments brought forward if you are in financial hardship. Is that what you're looking for? Thanks, Jason
