Students urged to apply early for SUSI grants to avoid delays

first_imgStudents thinking about third level education this September have been urged to get their SUSI student grant application in early in order to avoid the possibility of delays in having the grant approved. Applications for SUSI opened last Thursday, however, students who think they’re eligible for the financial support have been warned to submit their details on time.Cllr Liam Doherty said: “Application for SUSI opened to applicants last Thursday however, given that this coincided with the Easter holiday period, it’s likely that many students and their families overlooked it. “Of course, those hoping to start or return to third level education this September should make applying for the SUSI grant a priority, particularly given the importance of the payment to families and college goers at what is a very expensive time.“As many will be aware, the SUSI grant is means tested, so many students thinking of applying will probably need the help of their parents when filling out their applications.“Whether you’re a dependent, mature dependent or an independent will determine what income is taken into account for the purpose of determining if you are eligible for funding or not, so it’s important that applicants don’t put off getting their application in.“I’m therefore encouraging students and those returning to education to make their application as early as possible now and to make sure that all the information they supply is correct and up to date to avoid the possibility of the processing of their payment being delayed. “Anyone who is considering applying for student grant support should visit the SUSI website ‘susi.ie’, where they will be able to find all the information they need in relation to eligibility criteria, how to submit an application and where they can also monitor its progress once submitted.”Students urged to apply early for SUSI grants to avoid delays was last modified: May 5th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
