University College Cork has introduced a Student Debtor Policy. Students must pay their fees by the notified dates. A late fee penalty applies in all cases where fees payable by the student are paid after the notified payment date. It is the responsibility of students to familiarise themselves with the the University's regulations, which cover student fees, payment dates and registration procedures. Liability for fees rests with the student for the duration of their course. Students with outstanding fees will not receive details of examinations or examination results, and will not be permitted to progress to the next year of their studies.
