Paying fees when registering
For First Year Undergraduates only, if you have been awarded the full SUSI grant or you are still waiting on approval, pay the Capitation Fee of €165 on-line. A Student ID card can then be issued to you once you have paid the €165 Capitation fee. If subsequently, you are deemed ineligible for a SUSI Grant, please pay €1,500 immediately, and the balance of €1,500 in full by the 31st of January 2017.
For Progressing Undergraduates, if you are still waiting for your grant to be renewed, then pay the first instalment of €165 online when registering. If you have subsequently been declined the full grant, please pay the balance of the first instalment, €1,500 immediately and note that the second instalment must be paid on or before the 31st January 2017.
For Postgraduates, if by the time of Registration Part 2, you have not been awarded a SUSI grant, pay your Tuition fee on-line. For those who have been awarded a grant see instructions re paying fees in Registration email sent to you (Step 11. Fees Payment of 1st instalment), and bring your documentation from SUSI to Registration Part 2. Please note the following: Any outstanding fees that the student is liable for must be paid by the 31st January 2017.
Undergraduates: How much must I pay?
Undergraduate students eligible for 'free fees' and the full SUSI grant are only liable for the Capitation fee of €165.
Undergraduate students eligible for 'free Tuition fees,' but not eligible for SUSI/Local Authority/ETB grants are liable for the Student Contribution charge and the Capitation fee, totalling €3,165. The Student Contribution Charge may be paid in full at registration, or if financial circumstances do not permit, two instalments, with the second to be paid in full by the 31st of January 2017. The Capitation Fee of €165 must be paid in the first instalment; i.e. First instalment = €165 + 50% of €3,000 = €1,665 and the balance of €1,500 to be paid in full by the 31st of January 2017.
All previous degree holders are liable for the full Tuition fees, the Student Contribution charge and the Capitation Fee. The Tuition fees listed in the Fees Schedule are those applicable for the session 2016/2017: The total fee (Tuition, Student Contribution charge and Capitation fee) is payable in two equal instalments. Students who previously attended approved 3rd level programmes and didn’t complete the course, must contact the Fees Office to ascertain the fee payable.
