    Student loan additional drawdown on statement... 5 years after finishing uni?? 27th Sep 17 at 10:13 PM
    I left uni in 2012 and have just received a statement that has £3k 'drawdown' this year which means that despite making payments each month my overall balance has actually gone up this year.

    I called the SLC who said that sometimes universities are a 'bit late' with charging their fees correctly. I asked for them to send me all the information about what I've been charged and when, and they have told me I'll be charged by them to provide me with that information.

    Has anyone else had this happen? Is it really possible for a university to charge you more 5 years down the line?

    It's not usual but it is possible (and lawful).

    You should have received an annual statement. Did you check these were correct? If you no longer have them then you'll need to submit a subject access request, which will cost £10.
