Paying your fees to DIT in 2015/16
There are some changes to your Fee Payment options in 2015/16. Online and phone payment options are unchanged but Bank Giros will no longer be an option when paying fees as the processing of Giros is currently being phased out by most banks. Students can pay fees in 2015/16 quickly and easily using Debit or Credit card.
NB: All students must pay at least 50% of the fee due before class commencement.

Grant awarded students
Full time undergraduate Students registering online will have the option to declare a grant application which will allow them to register for their programme. DIT check with all awarding bodies with regard to grant applicants and there is a €500 penalty for falsely claiming a grant application.
Postgraduate students applying for grants will not see this option when registering as the vast majority of Postgraduate students receive an award of €2000 towards fees which leaves a significant balance to be paid by the student. Postgraduate students seeking a grant must ensure at least 50% of the fee due is paid to register before class commencement.
