Help your SFE students get their money on time

31 August 2017

Students need to register at their university or college before we can make their first student finance payment. Once their registration is confirmed, we’ll pay their Maintenance Loan into their bank account. It can take up to three working days for the money to reach their account. If they still haven’t got their money, they should speak to their bank before contacting us.

Our Getting Paid playlist explains what steps they need to take to get their money. It can be shared on your website and social media channels to make sure students know what they need to do.

The student finance zone also has some tips on how students can make sure they get their money in time for the start of their course.

Beware of Phishing Scams

Fraudsters often target students around payment dates at the start of term.

Make sure your students are aware of potentially fraudulent emails from anyone claiming to be from Student Finance England – we’ll never ask them to confirm their bank details or login information by email.
