Recovery of Overpayments


Students who have, for any reason, received Students’ Maintenance Grants for which they were not entitled, will be requested to pay back the outstanding amount by an official overpayment notice sent from the Students’ Maintenance Grants’ Office.


The reason why students may be requested to refund an amount of students’ maintenance grants received include:


(a)    Funds credited erroneously and which were not due to student


(b)    Breach of Students’ Maintenance Grants regulation including the 20 hour per week working limit (in which case all stipends and grants received during that academic year must be refunded)


(c)     Students who resign, fail or discontinue their course of studies; including students who are not promoted to the next year of studies


(d)    Students who abandon their course of studies without communicating their resignation (in which case all stipends and grants received during the academic year must be refunded)


Students must take note that on submitting an online application for students’ maintenance grants they bind themselves to inform in writing the respective stipends office within a week of their resignation from the course of studies. The Students’ Maintenance Grants Board reserves the right to determine / revise any amount of refund due from the students.


Payment Method:

a.   By Cash – Students must visit any MALTAPOST branch in Malta & Gozo. The letter received must be presented upon payment.


b.   By Cheque – Cheques are to be addressed to MALTAPOST PLC and sent to PO BOX 500 Marsa MTP 1001. Students are to write their Name, Surname, Reference number and ID number at the back of the cheque. A copy of the notification must also be enclosed with the cheque.


MALTAPOST plc will be issuing a receipt for every payment. 


Alternatively, students may request to settle refunds due by instalments on reaching an agreement with the Ministry for Education and Employment. In this case students must contact Mr Simon Farrugia on 25982338. Amount must be fully settled before commencement of the next academic year.


Students cannot be deemed eligible to receive further Students’ Maintenance Grants unless outstanding amounts are settled in FULL.


Online Application


Students who have settled their overpayment amount, or who have reached an agreement with the Ministry for Education and Employment to pay by instalments, are to upload a copy of the Maltapost receipt to their online application as soon as this is available to the student.
