What happens if I don’t pay my fees on time? 

Undergraduates and Continuing Students: 

If you owe fees at the end of an academic year, it will affect the following: 

  • Admission to a new programme 
  • Conferring 
  • Access to registration for the next academic year 
  • Late payment charges will be applied to your account 
  • Final year students will not be allowed to graduate until all fees and charges, including fines, have been paid. 
  • Click here for UCC Debtor Policy

Postgraduates: 

  • Continuing students will not be progressed to the following year of their programme 
  • Final year students will not be permitted to graduate until full fees and fines, where applicable, have been paid. 

All student fees are required to be paid by the published dates. 

If you do not meet the payment dates, you may incur late payment charges as detailed in the Student Debtor Policy of the University. The conditions of the Debtor Policy are brought to your notice before you register and are binding once registration is confirmed. All students agree to the terms and conditions of the University when they register for their programme. 

For ongoing students: if fees have not been paid by Registration, 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.

  • Check your fee account on the student portal regularly. 
  • Make payments when they are due. 
  • Clear your outstanding balance by the end of January to avoid future implications. 
  • Check your Umail messages as the Fees Office will communicate through official UCC email.
