How do I pay my fees?
Students can pay student contribution and tuition fees by logging onto IADT’s online ePayment service: https://epay.iadt.ie/invoice

Before making any payments, you should ensure that the amount you are trying to pay does not exceed any limits placed on your card by its issuer. For example, some cards (especially debit cards) have a daily or individual transaction limit, and you may need to make smaller payments over a few days if paying a larger amount.
