Twice each academic year normally in November and March you are requested to check that the correct modules are on your student record. This ensures that your record is correct and enables your exams/assessment results to be applied to your account promptly and sent to you without any delays. If you have optional modules you will need to deselect options you are not taking. It is your responsibility to ensure the modules on your student account are correct. Module selection for Semester 2 must be completed by 10th March 2017.
You can complete module selection by accessing the DIT Self Service System (you also check your exam results in this system)
You will need your Student ID number (User ID): eg D1234567 and your Password (same password used to register online) to access the system.
If you did not register online your password is defaulted to your six digit date of birth eg:080591, you will be prompted to change this on first login. You will need to fill out your security questions so you may reset your password if you forget your pin in the future.
Why do I need to do this?
All DIT programmes contain a number of modules which must be completed each academic year.
The majority of our programmes contain Core Modules only while others contain both Core and Optional Modules.
|There is no choice with core modules they must be taken|
|Students can choose from a number of optional modules, as to which is their preference to take|
Not all students have module choices but it is wise to check your student record and ensure that the modules on your record are correct.
If there is a module not appearing on your record you can search it here and add it to your account by adding the CRN to box at the bottom of the self service system page.
Module selection normally takes place as follows:
November - for Semester 1 and year long modules
March - for Semester 2 modules
Note: January start students will complete their semester one and year long exercise in March and their Semester 2 exercise in November.

The system is called the Student Self Service system to check, drop or add modules. Your student number is the User Name (this starts with either a capital C or D) and your PIN is your six digit date of birth which you will be prompted to change to a 6 digit number you will remember easily when you first login. Full instructions are in our How to Activate your Self Service Account
Each Semester you will receive an email to your DIT student email address asking you to check the modules on your student record. As soon as you receive this email you will then have access to check, drop or add modules. It will depend on your programme whether you have a choice of modules that you can take. Most students do not have a choice so all you have to do is check that all your modules you are taking are on your student record. For those of you who have a choice, it is advisable to complete the removal or adding of modules as soon as you receive the email as the system is open for a limited period of time.
If you have a choice of modules (ie optional modules) and you do not remove the modules you are not taking or add the modules you are taking from a different programme (ie elective modules), your name will not appear for exam/continuous assessment results to be entered. This is likely to cause a delay with your results being made available to you. Avoid this and go online.
If your programme does not have a choice of the modules ie all your modules are core then our system automatically populates all core modules onto your record so your exam results will be entered and considered and results will be available to you online without any delays.

Our User Guide goes through the step by step process Please click Module Selection User Guide
You can find your module in our Module Database
Modules are listed by name and course reference number (CRN)
If you are unsure of which modules to add or remove from your own record, contact us at email@example.com
It is always worth asking your programme tutor as they will be familiar with what modules are on offer on your programme and year.
If you cannot find the module you are looking for on the module database, remember you will need the source programme and year the module originates if it is different from the programme you are registered on. Our module database has details of the modules offered on all our DIT programmes and you can check them out on the database. Alternatively check with your programme tutor and they should be able to help or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The module option that I am taking is on a different programme and I cannot find it, what should I do?
Contact the relevant Lecturer in the school in which the module is being delivered to obtain this code.
No problem, simply you can add this module back by inputting the CRN code for the one you accidently dropped on your student record.
The Module Selection is not allowing me to drop a module as it is saying it is a core subject when in fact it is an option. What should I do?
In this case you need to contact the registration service either by telephone 01-4024663 or email email@example.com , please inform the registration service team of the CRN code for that module
If you have been officially approved for an exemption of a module(s) this module needs to remain on your student academic record. Please do not attempt to drop it.
This is correct; you should have both Semester 1 and Semester 2 modules on your record.
I am carrying a subject from last year, I cannot see it on my current year record should I add it to my record for this academic year?
No, Students who are carrying a module(s) from the last academic year should not add in their carry module(s). The module(s) that you are carrying will remain in your previous year’s record.
PIN Related Issues
Your pin may have been disabled for a variety of reasons; examples below
1. If you have outstanding fees for the academic year; if this is the case you need to contact the fees office on 01-4027500 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and arrange to pay your fees. Once your fees have been paid your pin will be unblocked and you can then access module selection.
2. I have tried to log in but have made too many attempts and now my pin is disabled. You need to contact the registration service at 01-4024663 or email email@example.com we will re-enable your pin for you.
No, they're not the same. The ID and PIN that you need to access Module Selection Student Self Service is the same ID and PIN which you used to register on your programme with DIT and access your exam results.
Student Email Issues
Not necessarily. You should check if Module Selection applies to your programme using the Modularised Programme Search facility. Also, you will only receive the email if you are registered on your programme. If you are not yet registered on your programme, contact the Registration Service immediately. If Module Selection is relevant to your programme and you have not received an email with your PIN, please contact the registration service on 01-4024663 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
To login to your student email account, go to www.myDIT.ie and login using your Student Number (e.g. C10123456) and your password. Your password for your student email account is your date of birth (e.g. If your date of birth is 2nd March 1991, your password will be 02031991) unless you have already changed your password.
If you have already changed your student email password, try to reset it using the Password Manager at http://mypassword.dit.ie. If you still cannot access your student email account, contact the IT Service Desk on 01 402 3123 or email@example.com
When I try to access the Student Self Service system, I'm getting an error message saying "Page Not Found".
We have received a few reports whereby certain firewall software is preventing access to the system. If you are receiving this error message, you can try to login to the system from within DIT or from an alternative location where firewalls may not be as restrictive.
No. At this point, you should be fully registered on your programme of study and you should have received your Student ID card. You are required to check that the correct modules are on your student record. For some students, there may be a number of optional modules which are associated with your programme and you now need to select to populate your record.
