How Do I Pay My Fees?

How to Make a Payment Online

Registering and making your payment that is due at registration

  • Go toMyStudentAdmin  
  • Enter your student ID number and your password and continue to login
  • Click on 'online registration’ 
  • If you have already completed most of the registration steps during a previous log in, you can click directly on where it says ‘payment of fees’
  • Otherwise, complete all steps beginning with ‘regulations /data protection’ and you can then pay your fees when you get to ‘payment of fees'
  • Follow instructions as advised when completing the payment from this point.You can change the amount that appears in the ‘amount to pay(EUR)’ box by clicking and entering the amount you wish to pay

The preferred method of fee payment is online via the student portal. If, due to exceptional circumstances a payment needs to be made by EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer), or if you are paying fees on behalf of a student, please click the button below for our bank details:

Additional payments where first payment was made under online registration 

  • Go toMyStudentAdmin
  • Enter your Student ID number and your password and continue to login
  • Click on the folder ‘fees
  • Select ‘fees outstanding'
  • All fees will be reflected here - capitation, student contribution and tuition fees
  • If the balance does not reflect the amount you wish to pay now, you can change the amount that appears in the ‘amount to pay(EUR)’ box by clicking in the box, cancelling the default  amount and entering the sum you wish to pay

It's best to check the fee accounts statement under the folder ‘fees’ where you can see a full statement of all amounts you paid this year as well as what remains to be paid.

Please note: if you have Free Tuition Fees (HEA FFI), the fees will show as a balance on your statement until early November. Your account will then be updated to reflect the HEA payment of your tuition.

Errors During Online Payments

If you have an issue with the following:

Referral A: This is a response that you can receive when a transaction is sent for authorisation. When an authorisation receives a Referral A, the card has been marked as lost, stolen or cancelled. Payment will not be taken.

101  Declined.

102/200   Referral B: This is a response that you can receive when a transaction is sent for authorisation. When an authorisation receives a Referral B, the issuing bank of the card holder will not allow the transaction to go through automatically and is requesting that you call their authorisation centre to process the payment.

Banking Online Error Codes

These fields (highlighted in yellow) have to be populated exactly as records held by bank.

If you input  details that differ to those held by the bank then the transaction will fail.  If you continue to have difficulties with your payment you should contact your bank.

No Access to Canvas/Services

As approved by Finance Committee in May 2018:

Where the minimum amount of fees due is not paid at registration, the students will be denied access to Canvas and the services attached to their ID card may be de-activated e.g. access to Mardyke Arena and the Library. 

If you are having problems accessing Canvas or services within the Library, you may need to make the minimum fee payment.

Please note that once the minimum payment has been made, access will be re-instated- This may take up to 24 hours.
