Delivering Payments and supporting students to stay safe online

The Student Loans Company (SLC) exists to enable students to invest in their futures through higher and further education by providing access to trusted, transparent, flexible and accessible student finance services.

We have been working hard to ensure that as many students as possible start the new term with funding in place. Monday was SLC’s biggest single payment date of the first term, meaning over £1.1 billion in Maintenance Loan funding has now been advanced to students.* This is an important milestone in a year when we are on track to process and pay a record number of student finance applications.

Not all students will have their applications fully processed at term start. Eligible applicants who applied late (after the deadlines) will be awarded the minimum Maintenance Loan amount first followed by a top-up payment if they are entitled to more funding. Students can find out more about how to get their first student finance payment if they have applied late online.

However, students should be aware that their funding can only be released once we have confirmation from their college or university that they have started on their course.

Students can track the status of their payment easily via their online account. Our short film explains what each of the payment statuses mean. Bank details and National Insurance numbers can also be updated simply via online accounts.

How to view your payment dates and status

The high demand for our services is reflected in the fact…

California files charges in alleged student loan relief scam

California Atty. Gen. Rob Bonta on Tuesday announced charges in an alleged multimillion-dollar student loan debt relief scam that prosecutors say stole from more than 19,000 victims in less than three years.

The alleged leader of the scam, Angela Mirabella, owned a network of debt relief businesses based in Orange County that operated call centers that promised to reduce or eliminate federal student loan debt, Bonta said. Prosecutors have accused Mirabella, as well as four call center managers and two sales agents, of stealing more than $6,130,000 from the victims, including 3,000 who lived in California.

An Orange County grand jury this month indicted Mirabella, as well as codefendants Cesar Sandoval-Vilchis, Stephen Gamboa, Briana Graham, Matthew Walsh, Teresa Lovato and Paulina Pacheco, on counts including grand theft by false pretenses, unauthorized use of personal identifying information, and unauthorized computer access and fraud. Mirabella faces special allegations for money laundering totaling more than $2.5 million and aggravated white-collar crime.

It was not immediately clear who is representing the defendants.

“Our students worked hard to achieve their college dreams, but for some their dreams have become horrific nightmares,” said Bonta at a news conference. “They were swindled; they were scammed.”

According to prosecutors, between 2017 and 2020, Mirabella’s sales agents contacted about 380,000 student loan borrowers. The agents pretended to be…

The scam, which has been reported across the country, has reached Ohio, the BBB told FOX 8, with one case recently reported in Summit County. According to the BBB, a scammer will call a potential victim saying they are eligible for a certain program.

If you receive a call in regards to student loan forgiveness, the BBB offers the following tips with how to proceed:

  • Time to take a breath. If something is a “limited time offer” it’s likely not real. In general, know you should never have to act immediately.
