All students must enrol once per academic year either as present or non-present. Those who continue with their studies, enrol before the beginning of the autumn semester. Enrolment always concerns the entire expected or remaining academic semester. The student who fails to enrol loses the study right. The information about the enrolment is also transferred to the University of Applied Sciences Study Grants Board, which gives even more reason to consider seriously the updating of the enrolment since it affects the possible social benefits. A student who has exceeded the study time cannot enrol absent.
The enrolment time for 2013-2014 is 15.4. - 3.9.2013. The students who continue their studies enrol in WinhaWille at https://secure.puv.fi/wille. Those who have exceeded the regular time of completion for a degree must submit a specific form and enrol at the Study Affairs Office. In connection with the enrolment, the student must update the contact information and the email address at ‘Change Address’ in WinhaWille.
Change of present/non-present enrolment
The enrolment as present/non-present can only be changed at the turn of the academic year. For the spring semester, the change in enrolment must be filed by 13 Jan 2014 by submitting a form to the Study Affairs Office.
During the regular time for the completion of a degree, the student can enrol non-present for two academic years altogether, however, one academic year per time. This time is excluded from the regular time of study. While non-present, the studies cannot be completed or entered into the student register. It is a good idea to consider the use of the right to be non-present. In case the student has not enroled non-present, and fails to attend the studies or attends only occasionally, the regular time for the completion of a degree decreases.
