Q. What are the charges on the bill?
Tuition fees are the University's charges for 3rd level programmes as determined by the Department of Education. Where students are eligible for free fees the funding is provided by the HEA.
The Student Contribution for “free” fees students in 2012/13 will be €2,250.
All students on undergraduate ‘free fees’ programmes pay the Student Contribution of €2,250.
Reductions for second and subsequent children take place through the tax system, i.e. all students are initially due to pay the €2,250
Students may pay the Student Contribution in two parts at the start of semester one and at the start of semester two.
The Student Centre Levy also needs to be paid by every student in UCD. In 2012/13 this is €183.00. This covers the cost of subsidising student activities, clubs and societies etc.
Q. I am paying for my son's/daughter's fees. What options are there for me to pay?
You can pay online through the SIS Web with your son/daughter. They will need their student number and PIN and you payment can be made by credit card.
You can pay using a giro. Giros are available from the Student desk in the Tierney Building or can be ordered online.
Q. I'm paying my son's/daughter's fees, why can’t I get specific information about their account?
Although UCD recognise that in some cases parents are paying for their sons/daughters tuition, UCD cannot give out any private information about the student‘s account to their parent/guardian. Under the data protection act, all information that UCD has regarding the student remains private and will not be shared with anybody else under any circumstances.
Q. My son/daughter has got a bill in the post. I don’t understand some of the charges.
Fee bills or Giros are issued throughout the year as a reminder for students. These bills show the student’s current charges and payments for that academic year. Charges will show an overall composite feew which is made up of tuition and a student contribution charge. There will also be a student centre levy shown. In some cases there may be the health centre levy, re-sit or substitute module fees. If this is still unclear you can send an e-mail to email@example.com and your query will be explained.
