Students are expected to settle their tuition and residence fees promptly within the due dates set out in the contract.

For more details on the process and restrictions that will be applied upon late payment, please see the consequences of late payment.

We do recognise that there may be changes in your personal circumstances or unforeseen events, which make it difficult for you to pay on time.

If you are a King's Online distance learning student, undertaking any of the King’s Online postgraduate courses, please refer to our King's Online Distance Learning Fees page for guidance on late payments.

If you are studying on any other course, we would encourage you use the form below to contact credit control to discuss your circumstances to see if we can help.

Whilst it is important to recognise that the college will not always be able to provide you with terms outside our college regulations, we will look at your request individually, giving consideration to your individual circumstances, the time needed to make payment, your payment history and importantly, the evidence you are providing to support your request.

Please be aware that regardless of whether your request for additional time is successful, it is very important that you keep in regular contact with the credit control department to ensure that the team is aware of your situation. If you are unable to meet the payment due dates, we will have to apply restrictions to college services (as detailed above), and whilst these cannot necessarily be prevented as a result of your contact with credit control, it may help in avoid further action being taken by the college to secure payment.


Speak to a specialist student advisor

If you are experiencing broader financial difficulties, and are worried about other financial commitments as well as your payments to King’s, specialist student advisers based in student services can help you to assess your eligibility for funding or welfare replacement benefits, and evaluate how you can pay your bills in these ever changing circumstances. You can speak to the advisers in confidence over the phone or submit an online enquiry form, with the details of your case and your availability for an online consultation.

Undergraduate home students

If you:

1. Are in receipt of the 'full' £1600 King’s Living Bursary entitlement


2. Have paid at least 75% of your total tuition fee by 31 January

we would invite you to complete the above form to request more time to pay so we can confirm these two conditions have been met, and re-schedule the due date for the remaining 25% of your tuition fees from 31 January to 30 April.
