Paying your Fees
Fee payment is addressed when completing Part 1 of the registration process. This is an online process. You are asked to select 1 of 3 options. Pay Online, Request a Bank Giro, or Funded.
If you are paying fees, and it is possible to pay using the online facility, this is the preferred option. Please note however, if you are paying with a Laser card, the maximum amount you can pay each day is €1,500, so you may need to pay the full fee over a number of days.
If you Request a Bank Giro to be sent to you, this will take 5 working days to be processed. This will be sent to the address that UCC has on the system for you. Therefore, it is important to let us know if you change your address during the application process.
If you are applying for a Higher Education Student Grand, then select the 'Funded' option.
The Student Assistance Fund is funded by the Department of Education and Science with assistance from the European Social Fund as part of an initiative to tackle disadvantage. All full-time registered students are eligible to apply for assistance from the fund. Resources will be targeted at those disadvantaged students most in need.
In order to be eligible to apply for student assistance, you must be registered on a full-time undergraduate or postgraduate course of not less than one year’s duration in a participating college. Unlike the maintenance grant schemes, you cannot be considered for Student Assistance prior to registering in a participating college.
