The student can enrol for attendance or non-attendance depending on the date, when he or she has accepted study entitlement.
If the student has accepted study entitlement in a degree programme before autumn 2015, he or she can enrol for non-attendance for four terms at the most. If the student has accepted study entitlement in autumn 2015 or after it, he or she can enrol for non-attendance without a specific reason for two semesters at the most. In addition, he or she can enrol for non-attendance because of military or non-military service or because of maternity, paternity or parents’ leave without decreasing the study entitlement time.
A present student can enrol for non-attendance for either the autumn or spring semester of the following academic year by the end of July. If the student does not enrol for non-attendance by this time, he or she is enrolled for the whole academic year.
Enrolment for the following academic year begins in April or May in the spring term and ends by the beginning of August. Information of enrolment is sent to the students by e-mail.
Graduates leave an application for the Degree Certificate and answer a Questionnaire for the Graduates at SoleHOPS eServices.
NOTE! CHANGED POLICY! The certificate is requested three weeks before the intended graduation date.
