    Explanatory Notes

    Note: Please read carefully before completing the installment application form

    • Students should only complete this application form if they have applied for a grant and are awaiting approval. Students are liable for the fees until such time as their grant is finalised and they receive a letter from SUSI or their local authority stating the amount awarded.

    • Students are advised to make monthly installments to avoid severe financial difficulties should their grant application be unsuccessful. Often students assume that they will get a grant only to find they cannot provide the necessary documentation or they do not meet certain criteria required under the grant scheme.

    Procedure to become “Registered to pay in Instalments”:

    • Students will be enrolled as “Registered to pay in installments” once they return the completed application form and pay the first Installment.  Students should retain a copy of the completed form for their own records.

    • Monthly installments should be paid online at and receipts will be sent to your CIT   e-mail Account once each payment is made. You may also query your current outstanding balance from this link.

    • By completing the application form you are agreeing to pay the monthly installments therefore failure to do so will result in late fees and access to exam results will be restricted.

    • Once we receive notification that your grant has been approved any fees paid will be refunded to your Credit/Debit or Laser Card.

    BTEA (Back to Education Allowance)

    Please note this section only relates to students in receipt of certain Social Welfare payments.

    • If you have applied for the Back to Education Allowance (BTEA) you will be required to present a Letter to your social welfare office stating that you are “Registered” on a full-time course. 

    • This letter is only available from your department Secretary once you are registered i.e. you have paid your fees for Semester 1 or registered to Pay in installments i.e. you have completed the installment application form and paid the 1st installment.

    • The Accounts Office will advise your Department Secretary and the letter of Registration will be posted to your home address. (Please allow 3-4 working days).
