Registration (Confirming Module Selection)

Video Tutorials to demonstrate how to register online is available at the following link:



THE LATE REGISTRATION FINE OF €200 applies to all students who fail to register Week 1 of each semester on the Student Portal Online.

NOTE: Payment of Fees does not constitute registration. You must register for your programme of study and module selections during Week 1 of each semester.


What is Module Registration - Week 1?
Registration is where you confirm to the University that you are actively taking part in a Programme and the modules you are taking as part of your programme.  By confirming module selection you are facilitating the University of Limerick in claiming Academic Fees (Free Fees) from the (HEA) Higher Education Authority on your behalf.

N.B. Payment of fees (i.e. Registration, Examination and Student Services Charge) does not constitute module registration.

Who needs to Register?
All students that have enrolled on a programme of study at the university are required to register in week 1 of each academic semester.  This regulation applies to students on campus, and also includes students on Erasmus programmes, professional placement, COOP and Teaching Practice.  The registration process is required to:

  1. Allow you to participate in your programme of study (including off-campus elements).
  2. Gain access to on-line services including lecture notes and learning management system resources.
  3. Seek payment of your academic fees from the HEA under the "free fees scheme" or other sponsoring body (where appropriate).
  4. Advise the Lecturer and Department you intend to take these modules and allows entry to end of semester assessments.
  5. To facilitate UL in giving you Student Semester Lecture, Lab and Tutorial timetables and Examination timetables.
  6. Inclusion on class lists, grading sheets and reports for faculty.

When does it take place?
Registration takes place on week 1 of both the Autumn and Spring Semester of each academic year.

What happens if I don't Register?
The implications of not registering are serious and far-reaching, as Students who fail to register during week 1 of any given semester will:

  1. Incur a fine of €200
  2. Denied access to:
      • SULIS
      • Computer Account
      • Entry to Examinations
      • Student Results
  3. Not receive a complete Semester Timetable for Lecture, Lab, Tutorial and Examination timetables 
  4. Not be included on Module Class list and Grading Sheets and reports for faculty
