Payment Options


We offer a number of payment methods if you wish to make additional payments to your account, or if you need a method to make your scheduled repayments.

Debit or credit card

You can make card payments using Maestro, Switch, Delta, Visa, Visa Electron and Mastercard.

There will be approximately a 1.5% surcharge added to payments made by credit card.

Debit cards will not have this surcharge applied.

If someone wants to make a payment towards your loan they can use our Make a Payment service without the need to login to your account.

Cheque or postal order

These should be made payable to Student Loans Company Limited.

Please write your Customer Reference Number (formerly known as ART ID), Loan Account Number or Student Support Number on the back of your cheque or postal order and send it to:
