Converting coronavirus loans to grants
On this page is the information for those who were asked to document a drop in income from employment.
You must provide documentation showing that you experienced a drop in income
Only pupils and students who actually experienced a drop in income from employment as a result of the coronavirus situation will be eligible for the conversion.
Lånekassen therefore asks all pupils and students who received an additional coronavirus loan during the spring of 2021 to provide documentation showing that they experienced a drop in income from employment for all or parts of the period between 16 June 2020 and 15 June 2021.
The deadline for submission of documentation is 13 March 2022
Log in to lanekassen.no to answer the question of whether you experienced a drop in income from employment and to submit documentation. If your documentation is accepted, NOK 10,400 of the loan will be converted to a grant during the spring of 2022. This means that your debt will be reduced.
No drop in income after all
If you received the loan but did not experience any drop in income after all, you still need to respond to the question on Dine sider.
If you did not experience a drop in income after all, NOK 10,400 of the additional loan cannot be converted to a grant. The entire additional loan will be added to your student loan, which must be repaid after you complete your education.
