Students applying for Parents’ Learning Allowance (PLA) should follow these steps:
- Apply for student finance as normal and fill in the section for PLA.
- We'll assess their application and contact them if we need more information.
- We'll send them a letter telling them how much student finance they can get, including any PLA.
Change of circumstances
If a student's circumstances change after they've applied for PLA, they should contact Student Finance England to let us know as soon as possible.
