  • Confirming the dates you attended the University if you are a past student
  • Confirming award details i.e. graduation date, award received
  • Please note we do not liaise with SUSI for individual students, nor print letters for them confirming registration. If you are requesting a letter due to there being multiple members of your family applying for the SUSI grant, we can provide this to you, otherwise the process is as follows: When students register in week one, SUSI put them on a report and send it to us to confirm registration, we confirm the students on the report who are registered and then send back to SUSI, who then provide payment to the student. We receive a report from them every week on a Tuesday evening and send back to them on Friday. If your payment has been halted or you have not received any payments, please contact SUSI and request to be put on the next report and we will confirm your registration with them.
