I am having issues applying for my student loan.
If you encounter any issues applying for your student loan please contact Studylink at 0800 88 99 00. Alternatively you can contact Rebekah O’Donaghue (Palmerston North UCOL | Te Pūkenga) firstname.lastname@example.org or Lola Hiroti (Whanganui UCOL | Te Pūkenga) email@example.com.
Studylink are waiting for UCOL | Te Pūkenga to confirm my study
The Studylink confirmation process is an automated process that occurs overnight. Studylink will start this process with a Verification Of Study Request (VOS Request), which will extract your study details from our system based on the information you have provided them. Common issues that can prevent this from occurring are:
1) Incorrect study details provided to Studylink e.g. study dates, student ID number, etc.
2) Incomplete application for study – although you may have submitted your application with us, you may not yet be enrolled. To check out your current application status simply login to sws.ucol.ac.nz or contact one of the team at 0800 46 82 65 or on firstname.lastname@example.org.
