What you need to apply - Student Loan
Here's a list of the documents you will need to provide the first time you make an application for a Student Loan.
What documents you need to provide
If you're applying for the first time, you'll need to provide:
- birth certificate or passport (to show your date of birth)
- passport or citizenship papers (to show your residency status)
- pre-printed deposit slip from your bank if you're applying for living costs or course-related costs (to show your bank account details)
- marriage certificate or deed poll papers (to show any name change you've had).
In most cases you won't have to provide any document we've already seen. If you're unsure about what you need to provide, contact us.
If you're providing a copy of an original document, each page needs to be verified. A verified copy is a copy of the original document which has been signed and dated by someone like a StudyLink or Work and Income staff member, officer of a tertiary education provider, school principal, Solicitor/Lawyer, Notary Public, Court Registrar or Justice of the Peace (listed in the Yellow Pages) who can confirm that the copy is the same as the original. They must print their name and title on each page of the copy and write that it is a true copy and sign it.
If you send an original document we'll return it to you by courier.
