As a rule, students should re-register in person at Student and Learning Services and have with them a duly completed re-registration form and the required receipts indicating the payment of the re-registration fee and possible Student Union membership fee.
It is also possible to register by telephone or email, in which case the student should send the required receipts to Student and Learning Services by mail. When registering by telephone or email, students are recommended to contact Student and Learning Services in advance to agree on the procedure. The re-registration procedure is based on the Universities Act (558/2009, Section 39).

If you do not have a valid user ID for the university’s IT services, the study plan should can be submitted on paper and be approved by the coordinator of the study programme.
According to the Universities Act, a first-year degree student may register as absent for the academic year for for the following reasons only:
Students who register as absent must prove the legal grounds for their absence. Documents proving the legal grounds for absence should be sent by post to Student and Learning Services by 30.9. Students who fail to do this will lose their right to study. If they wish to start their studies later, they must re-apply for the right to register and pay the re-registration fee.
A re-registration fee of EUR 35 will be collected from re-registering students. The fee will be collected from all the students who fail to register at the university as being present or absent during the registration period. The re-registration fee will not be collected from students who after discontinuing their studies wish to register as being present, if they register during the academic year in which the discontinuation ended.
The re-registration fee is paid into a the University of Eastern Finland bank account found in the re-registration form.
