FLEXIBLE LEARNING POLICY AND PROCEDURES FOR PAYMENT OF FEES
Once you have been offered and accepted a place on a Flexible Learning course and you have been issued with an LIT Student Number, you are required to pay your course fees using one of the methods outlined below.
Please note that if you wish to pay your course fees in one lump sum, the fees must be paid in full before the start date of the course. €250 of fees paid will be held as an administration fee and is non-refundable other than in exceptional circumstances as outlined in our Withdrawal and Refund Policy.
1. Online Payment with a Debit/Credit Card
Access the Online Payment System by using the following link:
Click here for Online Payements
Your user ID (student number) and PIN will be provided on your registration letter/email.
- Select Option 2 - Student Account
- Select Account Balance by Term
- Select the Pay Now button and input the amount you need to pay
- Press Submit
Requests for receipts may also be submitted using the above link by selecting option 5.
Please note new security protocols are in place for online payments to comply with the EU directive on SCA (Strong Customer Authentication) and the second Payment Services Directive PSD2 that is required on all e-Commerce systems since January 1st, 2021.
Prior to entering the card details you will now be presented with an additional page to authenticate the cardholder details before a payment goes through.
On this page you will be asked to verify cardholder address (including Postcode), telephone number in format 3538.. and e-mail address.
The mobile number entered must be the card-holders mobile number so that the verification code can be sent to their mobile to enter on the payment screen.
Please ensure that the card you are using matches the cardholder details on the authentication page as otherwise payment will fail.
Please note this authentication page and the details collected are controlled by the payment provider not by LIT.
2. Instalment Plan
To be eligible for an Instalment Plan, you must be registered for a course which is a minimum of 10 weeks in duration and for which the total course fee is a minimum of €500.
If the course you have applied for meets the eligibility criteria outlined and you wish to set up an Instalment Plan, please visit Grants & Fees Instalment Plans for further information and to download an Instalment Plan Form. Please note that Instalment Plans must be in place and the first instalment paid prior to the start date of the course. The first instalment must be a minimum of €250. This fee is non-refundable other than in exceptional circumstances as outlined in the Withdrawal and Refund Policy.
Instalments can be paid online using your debit/credit card as outlined in point 1 above.
3. Sponsor Invoice
If you are being sponsored by your employer or other third party, you must download and complete a Sponsorship Agreement Form (below).
Sponsorship Agreement Form
Completed and signed Sponsorship Agreement Forms should be submitted to the Grants & Fees Office of LIT at email@example.com
Please note that Sponsorship Agreement Forms must be completed and returned before the commencement date of the programme. Once the Sponsorship Agreement Form has been submitted our Grants & Fees Office will issue an invoice directly to the sponsor.
€250 will be held as an administration fee and is non-refundable other than in exceptional circumstances as outlined in our Withdrawal and Refund Policy. You should make your sponsor aware of this before they commit to sponsorship of fees.
If you are availing of funding through the Department of Social Welfare or other such funding body, proof of such funding will need to be in place prior to the commencement of the course. Should the funding be denied, or should you withdraw from the course after the commencement date you will be invoiced for the €250 administration fee directly.
Please note that for security reasons, we are unable to accept cash payments under any circumstances.
We are also unable to accept payments by cheque from the 20-21 academic year as the Grants & Fees Office are no longer able to process cheque payments.
