Payment of the re-enrolment fee

Pohjola Pankki Oyj, IBAN FI3950000120255954, BIC OKOYFIHH. Write ‘uudelleenkirjautumismaksu’ (re-enrolment fee), your name and student number in the message field.

The payment receipt of the membership fee (only pertains to undergraduate/graduate students) and the re-enrolment fee must be delivered to the Student Customer Services to enable registration and reinstatement of study rights by email to opinto@lut.fi or by post to LUT-yliopisto, Opiskelijapalvelut, P.O. Box 20, 53851 Lappeenranta.

Note! You do not have to pay the re-enrolment fee if you are changing your registration status from non-attending to attending. Your study right remains active while you are registered as non-attending and therefore it does not have to be reactivated by paying the re-enrolment fee. Your study right is only inactivated if you fail to register by the deadline.

Reactivation of the study right

Neglecting to register for the academic year uses up the time allocated to you for the completion of your degree. This applies to study rights to study for a bachelor’s or master’s degree that started on 1 August 2005 or later.

If you did not register as an attending or non-attending student for the previous academic year, you must apply for the reactivation of your right to study. You can apply for the reactivation via this form. If your study right is reactivated, you must also pay the re-enrolment fee.

Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) fee

Students entitled to the services of the Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) must pay a healthcare fee to Kela for each academic year. Students who are studying for a bachelor’s or master’s degree and have registered as attending for the academic year are entitled to  the FSHS services. Doctoral students, exchange students to Finland, open university students, students in continuing education or specialising studies and students attending customer-specific training are not entitled to the FSHS services and do not have to pay the fee.
