SUSI Grants:

DIT's registration and student fees policies are designed to ensure that students are not denied access to services while they are awaiting grant applications. All full-time undergraduate students at DIT who have applied for a grant are able to register in full and are given full access to all DIT services including student cards, library access, web courses and email.

If you have applied for a grant you will be able to register online and have instant access to these services. You simply click enter grant details when you reach the payment page and enter your application number and the date you applied for the grant. 

Online Registration

Our online registrations portal will open from mid August to enable students to register on their programmes for the next academic session.  Details on how to register will be sent to continuing students (who have passed all their exams and assignments) to their DIT student email account from mid August onwards.  Please check your DIT email account regularly from mid August.

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 €2,000 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.
