Fees
Fee information can be viewed on the DCU Finance Office website at
http://www.dcu.ie/finance/fees/programme_costs_distance_education_2011-2012.shtml.
Oscail have introduced installment payments for our students with 60% due when you register
and the balance due for payment on 20th January 2012. Therefore the amount shown on the
online registration system will be the 60% of your total fee. If you wish to pay your fees in full,
you can input the appropriate figure into the system.
All students on all programmes pay fees to DCU through the online system. There is a daily limit
of €1500 on payments made by Laser that students should be aware of.

If your employer has agreed to sponsor your fees you should use the ‘Invoice Request Form’
which can be found at http://www.dcu.ie/oscail/progforms.shtml . Upon completion of this form,
you should return it directly to: DCU Fees Office, DCU, Dublin 9.

Once you register online you are liable for the full fees pertaining to the modules you have
registered for. This debt remains with the University and fees are non-fundable. Failure to pay
fees will result in delay/restricted access to the resources for your course. Registration should be
completed by 26th August to ensure all supports are in place for course commencement.

Undergraduate Course Materials
As your course materials will be despatched to you by An Post courier, you may wish to provide
an additional address for the mailing of these materials as they will be delivered during business
hours and must be signed for. This address will be used for this purpose only. You can enter this
address during the online registration process. All available text will also be on Moodle from the
26 September, 2011. Other information about tutorial schedules and access to online services
will be posted on the Oscail website at the beginning of the academic year.

Postgraduate Course Materials:
Postgraduate students will be able to access their materials on-line through Moodle from 26th
September 2011.

Graduates: Those of you who have completed your studies and are due to graduate this year
should disregard this correspondence. Congratulations on attaining your award and details on
graduation will be sent to eligible students directly from their university of registration.


Finally, it is important that you check the Oscail website, www.dcu.ie/oscail and your student
email account on a weekly basis for any updates. Also, please ensure that your DCU mailbox is
maintained and kept clear of all but vital messages at all times to allow you to receive messages
from Oscail. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries regarding the above.


Yours sincerely,


Michelle Brennan
Programme Support Administrator
