The payments will be made directly into the accounts of students who have been awarded a grant.
SUSI said those who are not included in this week's payment run will receive their grant by the end of the month.
Around 40,000 requests were made this year -by the end of September, 21,000 were left to be processed.
The student grant body was widely criticised last year, when thousands of students were left waiting months for a decision on their grant application.
