Registering as a student


The practices involved in registering as a university of applied sciences student and losing the right to study comply with the regulations of the University of Applied Sciences Act (932/2014 28§, 29§ ja 32§).

Students must register as attending or non-attending every academic year. Students register for one academic year at a time. However, if the right to study ends in December, registration is done only for the autumn semester. Registration for the next semester/academic year is done in Peppi between 15.4.2020 and 31.8.2020.

Registration status may be changed during the academic year for a special reason by submitting an application to expertise group manager. Special reasons include significant changes in the student’s life situation, such as the student’s or a family member’s serious illness, maternity or paternity leave, military or civil service. A written document from the relevant official concerning the reason must always be enclosed with the application.

If you have problems with the registration, please contact: opiskelijarekisteriLapin AMK sähköposti

If you have been accepted as a student in spring 2015 or after, the absence period is a maximum of one academic year. Absence based on service under the Conscription Act (1438/2007), Non-Military Service Act (1446/2007), or Act on Women’s Voluntary Military Service (194/1995); or maternity, paternity or parental leave is not counted as study time. A written document from the relevant official concerning the reason must always be enclosed with the application.

A non-attending student may not participate in classes or exams, complete practical training as a part of studies or receive guidance in a thesis project being arranged by the UAS.

A student loses his/her right to study if he/she fails to register as attending or non-attending before the deadline. By application, the expertise group manager may restore the right to study.

A student who has not completed his/her studies with the statutory time must apply extension for his/her right to study. If the extension for right to study is granted, the student cannot register as a non-attending student.
