A degree student (Bachelor’s, Master’s or doctoral) has to apply for reinstating their study right, if they have lost it for one of the following reasons:
- A student has failed to register as absent or present during the registration period
- A first-year student has registered as absent, but has not submitted documents proving the legal grounds for absence by deadline
- a student who is required to pay a tuition fee fails to pay the fee by deadline
If more than a year has passed since the student’s last registration as present or absent, the Student Services shall consult the faculty before reinstating the student’s study right. The student is required to update their study plan. The student updates their personal study plan with their study coordinator before applying for reinstating the study right. Contact information can be found in UEF Connect.
A student applies for reinstating their study right with an online form and pays the re-registration fee of 35€. The payment information for the re-registration fee can be found on the form.
A student also registers as present or absent with re-registration. If you register as present, you also need to pay the student union membership fee. The payment information for the student union membership fee can be found on the form.
If your study right has already ended, you need to apply for extension to your study right first, before you can re-register.
Please note, that if you are registered as absent, you do not need to re-register, but you can change your registration to present by contacting the Student Services (contact information on the bottom of the page.)
NOTE! You need to register to all your active study rights as either present or absent in OILI registration service during the registration period, so that you do not lose your study right and so that you do not need to apply for reinstating your study right.
With one application and one re-registration payment you can re-register to all your study rights, there is no separate payment per study right if you re-register for several study rights with one application. State in the re-registration form to which study rights you register as present and to which as absent. Remember to register to all your study rights.
You apply for reinstating your study right with this online form (opens in a new tab). If you cannot use the online form, you can also use the re-registration form in Word form.
