Online Registration For Continuing Students

Online Registration is now open for Continuing Students.

Students who were in receipt of a SUSI award in 2019/20 will now see their liability for 2020/21. You will be asked to confirm your SUSI number as part of Online Registration. You should complete Online Registration as normal, but when you arrive at the ‘Registration Confirmation’ page, you should choose the ‘Pay Later’ option. Once IT Carlow receives confirmation of your grant being awarded, this liability will then be reversed. However in the event your grant is not renewed, you will become liable for all outstanding fees.

The Student Contribution Fee for the Academic Year 2020/21 is €3,000. If you were not in receipt of a SUSI award in 2019/20, you may register online without payment by choosing the ‘Pay Later’ option when you arrive at the ‘Registration Confirmation’ page, however you should be aware of the following:

  • 50% of your fees must be paid by 31st October 2020.
  • All fees must be paid in full by 31st January 2021. Failure to meet these deadlines will result in your IT Carlow accounts being suspended and withdrawal of IT Carlow facilities.

Students who have exhausted their entitlement to free tuition fees are required to pay Tuition Fees as well as the Student Contribution charge. Students must pay their fees in line with the information above.

SUSI applications can also be made by those applying for a Taught Postgraduate Programme.

EU Fees - Undergraduate

Do I have to pay fees? 

All students are required to pay the Student Contribution Charge of €3,000 for 2020/21, unless awarded a grant by Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI) If you have received a letter confirming your grant eligibility from Student Universal Support Ireland (SUSI), you may be exempt from paying the student contribution charge of €3,000. In some cases SUSI may only award a percentage of the contribution charge making you liable to pay the balance. If you are liable to pay tuition fees (not eligible for free fees), SUSI may or may not pay these fees on your behalf, so it is very important you check this with SUSI. 

If I don’t qualify for a maintenance grant, what fees will I have to pay? 

If you do not qualify for a maintenance grant, you will be liable to pay the Student Contribution Charge. For academic year 2020/21 this is €3,000. The tuition element of your fees will probably be paid on your behalf, provided you are eligible under the ‘free fees scheme’ for Level 6, 7 and 8 programmes.
