If you do not register for attendance or non-attendance during the registration period (1 May–31 August), you will lose your right to pursue a degree at the University of Helsinki. Please note that if you fail to register as either attending or non-attending, the elapsed time is included in your target study time.
If your normative duration of study ended on 31 July 2018 and you have been registered as either attending or non-attending as well as applied for/received an extension from your faculty, then you do not have to pay a re-enrolment fee when registering after the actual registration time.
The process for reactivating your right to study depends on the timing of your application for readmission.
Returning during the academic year in which you forgot to register
If you, after having failed to register at the University, wish to register as an attending or non-attending student during the same academic year, i.e. before 31 July, you are required to pay the re-enrolment fee. Please read on for payment and registration instructions.
If you wish to continue your studies after 31 July, you have to apply for readmission into the faculty. The application for readmission has to be addressed to the faculty where you held the right to pursue a degree. If you held the right to pursue a degree in several faculties, you can submit the application(s) to the faculties in which you wish to continue studying.
Once the faculty has reactivated you right to study, read on for payment and registration instructions.
