Delays in processing student loan applications

Opintolainojen osalta eletään vuoden kiireisimpiä aikoja.

This is the busiest time of the year when it comes to student loans. Unfortunately, there may be delays in our processing of student loan applications and drawdown requests filed in August. The processing times may be longer than usual. Please note that filing a new application will not speed up processing in any way. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

If you have chosen automated student loan drawdowns based on the guarantee decision from Kela, it means that your loan will be drawn down in your account on 3 August 2020. In that case, you don’t need to make any separate drawdown request.

Have you already drawn down student loan and continue your studies? After you have been granted a loan guarantee for the next academic year, you can apply for a student loan increase online.
