Restoring and extending study entitlement

Discretionary extension of study entitlement

If a student is not able to complete his/her studies during the study entitlement period, he/she must apply for a discretionary extension before his/her study entitlement period ends.

The student must present the special reasons he/she uses to justify the application.

It is only possible to apply for an extension of the study entitlement during the application periods: 1.11. – 31.12. and 4.5. – 31.7. 

Enter the application with your Laurea account and password. 

Apply to have your study entitlement period extended  

Form is open only during the application period

In accordance with a government decree, a fee of 50 euros is charged for processing the application.

In case you don´t have access to online bank service, please contact the Student Affairs Office for cash/card payment. 

It is only possible to grant an extension to a study entitlement if the student’s graduation within the extension period is realistic.

It is generally only possible to apply for an extension once and only up to a year.

An extension is not granted if the student has already completed all the requirements for the degree. 

Decisions on applications are sent to the student’s Laurea email address. Please make sure that your email account is not full. An extension is only granted for a special reason and it is always discretionary. It must be realistic to complete the studies within the extension period.

The study entitlement of students who have not been granted an extension will be declared expired and the student will be registered as resigned.

Application for restoring study entitlement

A student who has lost his/her study entitlement may apply for restoration of their study entitlement.

Students obligated to pay yearly tuition fees are considered to have neglected their obligation to register if they have failed to pay the tuition fee for the following academic year.

Study entitlement may be restored in cases where the student is able to complete the remaining studies within a reasonable time after the re-establishment.

In accordance with a government decree, a fee of 50 euros will be charged for processing the application.

If your studies are older than ten years, before filling the application, contact Student Affairs Office of your campus.

Follow the instructions below:

  1. Log in with your online bank service access codes.
  2. Fill in the required information (please note that the payment can also be made by another person)
  3. Conduct the payment via Paytrail service (note extra charge 1 € via Osuuspankki and Danske bank). Payment can also be made by another person.
