Stopping your student finance

If you leave or complete your programme, or switch to a programme that does not entitle you to a student finance, then you need to stop your student finance.

Deregister

You first need to deregister. You can do this at your educational institution (senior secondary vocational education) or via Studielink (higher professional education or university). Make sure to find out the date on which you will be deregistered.

End date for student finance

If you will be deregistered from your institution from the 1st day of the month, then you will no longer be entitled to your student finance as of that month. If you will be deregistered after the 1st day of the month, then you will no longer be entitled to your student finance as of the following month.

Failure to commence the programme

Have you applied for student finance but decided not to take the programme? You need to stop your student finance as of the 1st day of the month it would have commenced.

Stopping your student finance

  1. Log in to Mijn DUO to stop your student finance.
  2. Go to 'Mijn producten' and click on 'Studiefinanciering stopzetten'.
  3. Cancel your student travel product. You need to cancel it before the 5th working day of the 1st month in which you are no longer entitled to it. If you do not do this, you will be fined.

Commencing senior secondary education

Are you going to take a full-time senior secondary education programme (VMBO, HAVO or VWO)? Please complete the update assistant (in Dutch only) to see which actions you need to take.

Too late?

If you stop your student finance too late, then you need to pay back the extra money you have received.
