Student Levy Charge

Students can apply for a waiver of their Student Levy Charge for the current academic year. Fees can only be waived in cases where the student has already been approved Financial Assistance for that year or students who live in a household that is solely reliant on social welfare (evidence must be provided). Only fulltime registered students of TCD can apply the waiver through this office. No students from affiliated Colleges or from any college where TCD is validating their degrees can avail of this waiver.

In the case where a student has not already been assessed and qualified for financial assistance in the current academic year, they should pay the Student Levy Charge and this will be reimbursed if they qualify after means testing. Students should not rely on their Student Levy Charge to be waived in order to register.

An application must be completed and emailed to with all the relevant backup documentation scanned and emailed to the same address in one file only. No applications will be reviewed until relevant backup documentation has been provided.
