Clearing: A guide for students who have not yet applied for funding

FAQ for students who have applied to us through Clearing and have not yet applied for funding

 If you have already applied for funding, please see Clearing: A guide for students who have applied for funding

I haven't applied for Student Finance yet. Can I or still apply or is it too late?

It is not too late, but at this time for year it can take Student Finance 6-8 weeks to process an application, so you may not have your funding in place for the start of term. You should therefore insure you have alternative interim means to fund living costs

How can I apply for funding?

The quickest way is to apply online. Go to the Student Finance login page and click ‘Create
an Account’ logon.slc.co.uk/cas/login 

If my funding application hasn’t been fully processed by the start of term, can I still register?

You can still register. However you need to be aware that if your funding is turned down for any reason, you would have to self-fund any fees you become liable for. If you application hasn't been approved please see the Student Funding and Financial Support team at Registration

What happens if I don't recieve my funding in time for my first accommodation payment?

If you are staying in University accommodation and do not receive your maintenance loan at the start of the academic year you will need to make alternative arrangements to ensure the payment of your accommodation fees. Please contact finance-accomm@herts.ac.uk with any queries

If there is a delay to my funding, is there any support that the University can provide?

  • You can make an appointment to see the Student Funding and Financial Support team (funding@herts.ac.uk)
  • Within your appointment we will help you identify & resolve any outstanding issues with Student Finance
  • Depending on your circumstances, we may be able to offer you a delayed funding loan to help towards expenses such as food and travel. You will be required to pay back the delayed funding loan within 10 days of receiving your Student Loan
