2. Reassessment of your entitlement

What is a reassessment?

A reassessment is when we recalculate your student finance entitlement (how much you can get). A reassessment normally happens after we’ve been notified of:

  • a change to your circumstances
  • updated information in relation to you or your course
  • new estimates or confirmation of estimated information

We’ll consider how this new information affects your current student finance entitlement and let you know:

  • what has changed
  • how it affects your funding
  • any actions you need to take as a result

How can a reassessment affect my student finance?

If your entitlement is reassessed this could mean either:

  • you're due more funding, so future payments may be increased
  • you're due less funding, so future payments may be reduced
  • you're due less funding because you've been paid too much and now need to repay the amount you've been overpaid
  • your entitlement is unchanged - we'll still write to you to confirm this

What will happen following a reassessment?

We’ll always send you an updated Notification of Entitlement letter to confirm your new entitlement and tell you if you need to do anything.
