This field relates solely to Disabled Students' Allowances funded by the Student Loans Company (SLC) or Student Awards Agency Scotland (SAAS).
Providers are expected to collect this information from students annually.
If Student.DISABLE is coded 08-96 indicating that the student has a disability, then this field should be coded 4, 5 or 9.
Code 9 should be used for all cases where it is known that the student has a disability, but it is not known whether or not they are in receipt of Disabled Students' Allowance.
