Keep an eye on your bank account – if you’ve applied for a Student Start-up Loan, we’ll pay you soon.
If you’ve applied to have it paid to you in the 1 January to 30 June 2018 loan period, you’ll get it with your first payment after 1 January 2018.
If you’re a new student, you’ll get it after you start your course.
Remember, the Student Start-up Loan isn’t paid automatically. You need to apply for it and you also need to pay it back.
You may have applied for it when you claimed your student payment. If not, it’s easy for you to apply online using your Centrelink online account through myGov.
