Hi Trent,

Are you going to be studying this year? If so, your payment will be released once the university sends us 'confirmation of registration' and this then takes 3-5 working days to be paid to you. If you speak to them directly and ask them to send this over. Thanks, Jason

You wouldn't until you start (or if you start). We schedule payments and the university release these when you start your course. If you speak to them directly for advice on this. Thanks, Jason
