The Registration Process

Registration involves officially enrolling on your particular programme, paying fees, presenting specific documentation and receiving your student ID card. This is essentially your first step to becoming a UCC student. In UCC First Year

Registration has two parts to it:

Registration Part 1

This is where students register on-line for their programme and modules,

provide biographical information and pay fees.

Registration Part 2

This is where students attend at the Aula Maxima, at which time they will

receive their student ID cards.


Registration Part 1 - On-line Registration

You will receive in the post, your Student Number and Personal Identification Number (PIN) within the next five working days, along with step-by-step instructions on how to register on-line. These two numbers are unique to you and you will be using them for all your student life in UCC.

Registration Part 1, otherwise known as On-Line Registration, is the first essential step to registering for your degree programme. It must be completed before you complete Registration Part 2. On-line Registration should be completed once you receive your PIN in the post. 1 Once you complete On-Line Registration please print Confirmation of Registration before you log off, as this document must be presented at Registration Part 2. Payment of Fees is part of Registration Part 1 and can be made during On-Line Registration, either by Laser, by Credit Card (Visa, or MasterCard) or by requesting a Bank Giro (Fee Payment Form). Should you request a Bank Giro, you must go to the Bank with your Giro for fees payment and the Bank will transfer the money to your UCC student account. It is only possible to pay fees either by Laser, Credit Card or by Bank Giro. Your account is updated immediately when you pay on-line. It will take up to 10 working days to update your account if you request a Bank Giro (which you can do when completing On-Line Registration).


Registration Part 2 (Attending in the Aula Maxima)

Registration Part 2 takes place over a period - 18th September – 25th

September in the Aula Maxima located in the Main Quadrangle, UCC. This is the day you officially become a student of UCC and receive your student ID card.

  1. Confirmation of On-Line Registration (which you must print after completing Registration Part 1)
  2. Birth Certificate (long or short version acceptable).
