The instructions for annual registration at the university apply to students who are already enrolled at the university, i.e., they are in their second, third, etc., year of studies. If you are a first-year student see UEF web pages for registration instructions for new students.
A single registration covers all the study rights granted to a student.
Registration at the university is mandatory every academic year during a specified registration period. All students must register at the university.
The registration period for the academic year 2020–2021 starts on 2 May 2020 and ends on 15 September 2020.
The period for registering for the spring term only is 1 December 2020–15 January 2021. For more information concerning registration for the spring term, see the instructions below.
Registering in Oili registration service or in WebOodi
You can register electronically either through the Oili-registration service or in WebOodi. We recommend registration through the Oili-registration service. However, if for a reason or another you do not succeed in registering through the Oili-registration service, you can register in WebOodi. Registration in WebOodi is no longer possible after the academic year 2020-2021, at that time the University of Eastern Finland will only use the Oili-registration service for registration. Registrations done in Oili will also show in WebOodi.
Undergraduate students aiming at a Bachelor’s and/or a Master’s degree must pay the student union membership fee (using personal Finnish bank codes) when registering as present. The Student Union membership fee for the entire academic year is 100 EUR (including the Finnish Student Health Service fee for the autumn 2020, which is 28,50 EUR); or 64 EUR for autumn semester only (including the Finnish Student Health Service fee for the autumn 2020, which is 28,50 EUR); or 36 EUR (not including the Finnish Student Health Service fee because KELA will take over collecting the fee on 1.1.2021) for spring semester only.
For licentiate and doctoral students, who have already completed their Master’s degree, the Student Union membership is voluntary. The amount of the student membership fee for licentiate and doctoral students and other student groups entitled to join the student union can be found at Student Union Membership Fees.
You can register as absent if you are not going to attend any courses or complete any studies/a degree during the academic year, or if you have a reason for absence that is based on the law, such as participation in military or non-military service or being on maternity, paternity or parental leave. Students who register as absent based on the above reasons can have the duration of studies extended with the period of absence.
Also those who register as absent must do so within the registration period either in Oili registration service, in WebOodi or by email to the Student Services (opiskelu(at)uef.fi or by phone +358 29 445 8900).

Registering for the spring term
The period for registering for the spring term is 1 December 2020–15 January 2021.
You can register for the spring term either in WebOodi or through the Oili registration service. All Bachelor’s and Master’s degree as well as post-graduate students can register using the Oili registration service. Registrations done using Oili will show updated in WebOodi.
Using WebOodi or Oili registration service to register for the spring term is possible if the student’s registration for the autumn term 2020 has been recorded in the student register. If the student’s registration for the autumn term 2020 is not recorded in the student register, the student must apply for re-registration.
Students who study abroad during the academic year 2020–2021 have to register as present at the university for the duration of their studies abroad because the courses that they will complete abroad are included in their degree studies at the University of Eastern Finland.
If you forgot to register
Students who do not register as present or absent at the university by the end of the registration period are removed from the register. Readmission is granted based on an application submitted to Student and Learning Services. In addition, a readmission fee of EUR 35 is charged to students who register after the registration period has ended.
