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.

When a student wishes to change registrations (elective/s) choices made in Week 5 of the previous semester they are required to complete the Change of Registration form available from Student Academic Administration. The form (complete with the relevant module leader signatures) should be returned to SAA for processing by the end of Week 2 otherwise the student is subjected to a €10 charge.
Students in Year 1 of the BA Arts (LM002) may choose to change their subject up to Week 3 of the autumn semester only. The form must be signed by both the Course Director and subject leader before SAA can accept and process it. The form is available for download here: Change of Subject form (BA Arts LM002 - Year 1 Autumn semester only).
Please note that any changes to elective choices will not be reflected on online personalised timetables.
This is when a student registers for additional modules taken over and above the amount required. An Additional Module Registration form must be completed by the student.
The signatures of both the lecturer responsible for the additional module and Academic Advisor/Department Head must be on the form before it is returned to SAA for processing. Please note that any additional module choices will not be reflected on personal timetables.
