I will discontinue my studies before 1 February. Do I have to repay my student grant from DUO?
If this is the first year in which you receive a grant, a special arrangement applies to you. If you deregister before 1 February and stop your grant at the same time, you will not have to pay back the first months (maximum 5) of the grant, even if you will never obtain a higher education degree. This arrangement does not apply to students in other situations.
