University of Limerick regrets causing concern to some of its students who this week have received notification of a €200 late payment of fees fine. The fine has arisen due to the non-payment of fees and in some cases the amounts unpaid are very small e.g. the non-payment of the new UL Student levy of €18 per semester.
UL accepts students were not sufficiently informed of a clear deadline for payment of the UL Student Levy and has agreed with the President of the ULSU to move the deadline for payment of the levy and outstanding academic fees by a month to April 20th. UL and ULSU wish to reassure students that as long as all outstanding fees are paid by 20th April the fine will be removed from their individual accounts.
In April 2016 UL students voted 78.75% in favour of the introduction of a staggered levy towards the build of a new student centre and sports facilities. Further information available here.
