Sanctions for Non Payment of Fees

Sanctions incurred in the event that tuition fees are not paid on time.

If you do not pay your tuition fees on time, the following sanctions will apply.

  • Tuition Fee Debt will prevent you from registering for a New Programme at Ulster University

    Students who have outstanding tuition fees from a previous programme and wish to apply for a new programme at the University will not have their application processed.  The exception to this will be those who have a tuition fee debt accrued only in academic year 2019/20.

  • Tuition Fee Debt will prevent you from registering in the next Academic Year – with the exception of 2019/20 debt

    Students with an outstanding tuition fee debt will not be permitted to register.  The exception to this will be those who have a tuition fee debt accrued only in academic year 2019/20 where they will be permitted to register in 2020/21.  When setting up the instalment plan for the 2020/21 tuition fees, the outstanding tuition fees from 2019/20 will be included in this plan.  Please note that if you are receiving SLC funding to cover all of your 2020/21 tuition fees and select SLC as a method of payment when you register, but you have outstanding tuition fees from 2019/20, you will be required to contact the Tuition Fees Office to set up an instalment plan for this 2019/20 debt which is not being paid by the SLC.

  • Tuition Fee Debt will prevent you from receiving your Award

    Students who have successfully completed their course but have an outstanding tuition fee debt will not have a degree, diploma, certificate or other academic award granted and conferred.

    Students will not be permitted to attend a graduation ceremony nor receive a transcript of marks.

  • Tuition Fee Debt Recovery

    Students who leave the University with outstanding tuition fees will be traced via the debt collection agency engaged by the University and debts will be recovered via the appropriate legal process.
