We recommend that you follow up on your application immediately. Please contact the office where you submitted your application. A list of schools and contact details are available on http://dit.ie/colleges/. Often, DIT may be waiting to receive further documentation from the applicant before a formal offer can be made. It is best to clarify the status of your application as soon as possible.
Got a question here are the answers to questions we get asked the most. Have a look at our FAQ section below
I Have Applied to Study in DIT
Often our initial offer of a place on a DIT programme is a "conditional" offer, what this means is the offer is provisional pending the applicant supplying further documentation to support their application eg transcripts of results or confirmation in writing of relevant work experience. At this stage, the offer is "conditional" until all required documents are submitted by the applicant to DIT's office dealing with the application. Your application is not finalised at this stage therefore you will not yet receive information on how to register on your chosen programme.
An "unconditional" offer" is where you have been offered a place on a DIT programme and all required documentation to support your application has been submitted by you. If you meet all the necessary requirements and a place is available DIT will offer you an "unconditional" offer of a place on your chosen programme.
Some DIT programmes charge fees per module rather than an overall fee for a year of a programme. Applicants undertaking such programmes should as part of their application, discuss with the programme tutor the modules they intend to take. Once these details are submitted by the tutor to the Registration Service, registration details can then be issued to you.
DIT's Registration Service makes every effort to issue registration details promptly. It is advisable to make decisions on your modules as early as possible to avoid any unnecessary delay with registration details being sent to you.
First year students will receive their invitation to register to their correspondence address and returning students will be sent details to their DIT email account.
You will not receive an Invitation to Register from the Registration service until mid August 2016 at the earliest. However if you have not received any correspondence by the time classes are due to commence on 12th September 2016, please contact the appropriate contact below to enquire on the status of your application:

Name of Awarding Body/VEC - choose from drop down menu eg SUSI (Student Universal Support Ireland)
Postgraduate fulltime students who have applied for a grant are requested to pay a minimum of 50% of the overall fee owing to register. The reasonwe ask for this is the majority of postgraduate students do not receive funding for the full amount of the postgraduate fee therefore DIT require postgraduate students to pay the minimum amount to get registered pending the outcome of their grant application. If subsequently the grant authority pays 100% of the fees for a postgraduate student DIT will refund the amount paid back to the student.
I am a postgraduate fulltime student and have applied for a grant, do I have to pay fees to register?
Yes, postgraduate fulltime students who have applied for a grant are requested to pay a minimum of 50% of the overall fee owing to register.

In the exceptional cases, where postgraduate students receive 100% grant assistance DIT will refund the 50% paid by the student.
