Approval Letter - Disabled Students' Allowance

DSA Approval

You will need to wait for an approval letter from your DSA Funding Provider before you arrange a DSA Needs Assessment. They will look at your application and let you know whether you qualify for Disabled Students' Allowances.

DSA Approval Letter Approval Letter example

Your DSA Funding Provider will send you an approval letter to let you know if you qualify for the Disabled Students' Allowance. You may wish to inform a Disability Adviser at your University or College, letting them know that you have received DSA approval.

If the letter says that you do not qualify for the Disabled Students' Allowance, you may find it helpful to contact a Disability Adviser at your University or College.

Where possible let a Disability Advisor know who you are contacting, this is not compulsory.
