Termination of eligibility

8.—(1) Subject to paragraph (2) an eligible student shall cease to be eligible for a loan on the expiry of the period ordinarily required for the completion of the course, and accordingly he shall then cease to be an “eligible student”.

(2) The Scottish Ministers may before or after an eligible student ceases to be an eligible student under paragraph (1) determine that he shall continue to be eligible for a loan for such further period after the expiry of the period referred to in that paragraph as they specify, and accordingly he shall be, or be considered to have been, an “eligible student” throughout that further period until its expiry.

(3) Where an eligible student has withdrawn from a course in circumstances where the Scottish Ministers have not transferred or will not transfer his eligibility to another course under regulation 7, or has abandoned or been expelled from his course, the Scottish Ministers shall determine that he is no longer eligible for a loan, and on such determination he shall then cease to be an “eligible student”.
