DSAs Policy Guidance Documents, for both new and continuing students with a disability, have now been published for the Academic Year 2015/16. Documents are available from Student Finance England's Practitioner Resources site.

New DSA students’ in AY 2015/16 are generally those students who are applying for DSA for the first time in AY 2015/16.

Continuing DSA students’ in AY 2015/16 are generally those students who are continuing on or transferring to another higher education course in AY 2015/16, having been awarded DSAs for a previous year of their course. 

Full details of what ‘New’ and ‘Continuing’ means in this context is clarified within the documents.

SFE would also like to advise needs assessments centres that they should start booking students for their assessments starting from 07th April 2015.
