Student financial aid and the effects of the exceptional situation caused by the corona virus
The provisions regarding student financial aid make it possible to take into account the exceptional situation caused by the corona virus in the maximum periods of payment of student financial aid and when monitoring sufficient study progress. Information about other effects will be provided later.
If it has not been possible to study, payment of the student financial aid can still continue even if the study progress has not been sufficient. The maximum period of payment of student financial aid can also be extended. Information about other effects, for instance, on the payment of student financial aid and school transport subsidy, notifications concerning interrupted studies and the award of student loan compensation will be provided separately when the necessary measures have been agreed on.
