Fee Refunds Policy 2022-23

Fees Refund Policy Incl. ACE students 2022-2023


The University accepts no obligation to refund any fee or part of any fee paid in respect of any course or service provided by the University. The University is authorised, however, to issue partial refunds to all students who withdraw in the current academic year as stated below. Students remain liable for fees up to the date that they officially withdraw from the University. Circumstances occasionally arise that can cause students to consider leaving UCC before completing their degree programme.

If you are a Non EU Student and are considering withdrawing from UCC, please make an appointment as soon as you can with the Acting International Student Support Officer Ms. Natalie O’Byrne. Email natalie.obyrne@ucc.ie.

Refunds for Non EU/International students are dealt with on an individual basis and for reasons of

· not meeting the entry standard.

· not being successful in obtaining a visa or

· not taking up a place.

If you are an EU student and are considering withdrawing from UCC -

First Year Students, contact the First Year Experience Coordinator Nóirín Deady directly on: n.deady@ucc.ie.

If you are beyond first year, please contact the relevant staff in your college.

ACE Students requesting a refund of fees for reasons of withdrawal or overpayment must complete the Electronic Refund Request Form and ensure they include a copy of their bank statement header. Completed form and copy of bank header should be returned to acefinance@ucc.ie

SUSI/Grant Holders Refunds

Online refunds to grant holders, who have paid fees pending approval of a grant, are issued only when the University has received fee payment from the funding agency/Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI). These refunds will be issued automatically and do not need to be claimed from the University.

Online refunds are made onto the card that made the original payment. In the event that the time frame for refunding back onto your credit card has lapsed, you will need to complete an electronic refund form and also submit a copy of your bank statement header so we can verify that the details submitted on the form match those on your bank statement. UCC have introduced a double authentication system and this will form part of the refund process where applicable.
