• Applying late for a Maintenance Grant


So basically, I applied for Student Finance at the beginning of the year but only applied for the tuition fee loan, not the maintenance grant or maintenance loan as I didn't qualify for the former as my parents earned too much and didn't need the maintenance loan as I am living at home during universty so it is pretty pointless accruing even more debt.

However, my circumstances are to change at the end of September 2013. My father is leaving the army and we are relocating the family to Portsmouth, so for the first time ever, both my parents will be unemployed with no idea when they will get jobs again.

Would I still be able to apply for a maintenance grant this late or is it just not possible? Would I just ring up Student Finance and inform them of my changes in circumstances?

Any advice or information would be great!

Thanks in advance.
