Student’s responsibility is to enrol for the academic year, studies and resit exams according to given schedules.

Enrolment for the academic year

All students are required to enrol as present or absent for every academic year.

  • You need to enrol between 1.5.-31.8. via web pages ( you can change the enrolment for spring semester before 10 January)

When a student enrols as absent, s/he needs to take into consideration the possible changes in the course selection and their effect on the personal study plan. The curricula are planned on a yearly basis, and same courses might be offered again years later.

In case a student has enrolled as non-attending, s/he may not

  • attend classes
  • complete courses or category of study
  • register for courses
  • graduate
  • receive student financial aid
  • get subsidised student meals

Students who have not completed their enrolment within the enrolment period must re-apply for the right to study. The right to study restarts in the beginning of next month. The application form is available at the local student affairs office.

The application processing fee is 50 euros.

Enrolment for studies

You need to enrol on each module you wish to complete. The teacher cannot grade your work unless you have an accepted enrolment for the module. Starting from November, students will enrol on modules via Pakki, student desktop.

Enrolment for resit exam

Students enrol on resits according to the campus or degree programme procedure. 

To increase flexibility in organising resits, we have set up EXAM studios and started to use electronic resit service. The first studios were opened in Hämeenlinna and Riihimäki and they are open daily. EXAM service and electronic exams provide flexible ways of taking monitored exams, see instructions in the bottom of IT-services page>> 

You need to enrol at least two weeks before the exam date according to the instructions of your degree programme or campus. You may enrol if you got an F (fail) from your exam or if you need to upgrade your final grade. For more information, please contact the resit organiser or the Student Affairs Office(r) at your campus.
