However, if you or a family member have experienced a change in circumstances from 1st January 2021, you may apply for your application to be assessed/reassessed under a change in circumstances by emailing email@example.com and including Change in Circumstances in the subject line.
To apply for an income related change in circumstance, the fall in income must be likely to continue for the duration of the course or the foreseeable future.

If the change happens during the academic year, any grant award or adjustment will take effect from the month in which the change occurred.
When you apply and/or advise of a non-income related change in circumstances, as per above, you will be asked to provide SUSI with documentary evidence to allow us to assess your application in relation to the declared change in circumstances.
