Withdrawing from a Programme

Undergraduate and Taught Postgraduate Students

Prior to a Student making a decision to officially withdraw from a programme, it is highly recommended that contact be made with either their Programme Leader, Head of Department and/or the LIT Careers Office.

To officially withdraw, the student must complete an official LIT student withdrawal form, a hard copy of same can be obtained from the Admissions Office and all of the School Offices.  The Student should return the completed, signed withdrawal form, together with their Student ID Card to the Admissions Office as soon as possible.  

A soft copy of this form can be obtained from the Admissions Office page on the LIT website. http://www.lit.ie/Admissions/Forms.aspx

For fee purposes upon receipt of the official withdrawal form, the Admission Office will liaise with the relevant Faculty, School or Department to determine the student’s last date of attendance.  This will be then used, as the date of leaving.   


If a student officially withdraws from a programme before specific dates a refund of some fees may be possible. Please see following examples:

If a student officially withdraws form the college before 31st October, they will be refunded all contribution/tuition fees paid to date for that academic year.

If a student officially withdraws from the college between 1st November and 31st January, they will be charged 50% contribution and 50% tuition.  They will be refunded any amount that they have paid that exceeds the 50%.

If a student withdraws after the 31st January, they are not entitled to a refund and are liable for the full fees for that academic year.

NB: Please note that materials/health & safety fee paid for certain courses in non-refundable.

Students who do not formally withdraw or defer continue to be enrolled on their course and the college will claim their full tuition fees for the year.

Students may also have outstanding fees on their accounts which will affect their enrolment should they return to college at a later stage.
