Enrol for attendance or non-attendance

In order to retain their study entitlement, students must enrol for attendance/non-attendance via the ASIO student management system of JAMK every semester during the enrolment period. Non-enrolment (both for attendance and non-attendance) leads to loss of study entitlement.

Enrolment for the spring semester can be done simultaneously with the enrolment for the preceding autumn semester. If you want to change enrolment from attendance to non-attendance or vice versa you must contact Student Services. Enrolment may be changed only during the enrolment period, not in the middle of a semester.

Instructions for new students

The applicant accepts the study place via Studyinfo.fi service enrolling as an attending or non- attending student.

Students may enrol as non-attending students in their first year if they are

  • completing their military or civil service in accordance with the Conscription Act, Non-Military Service Act or Act on Women's Voluntary Military Service
  • on maternity, paternity or parental leave
  • incapable of commencing the studies due to personal illness or disability.

The absence must be verified with official documents during the enrolment period in Student Services. If the documents are insufficient or are not delivered during the enrolment period, the student in question will be registered as attending.

Enrolment for attendance

When you have enrolled as attendance, it guarantees

  • the study entitlement
  • the right to register for and attend courses
  • to complete courses
  • to receive thesis guidance
  • to apply for a degree certificate

Enrolment for non-attendance

Non-attending students do not have the right

  • to attend classes
  • to register credits

Even if you have enrolled as non-attending, you can take studies as Open Studies. The courses are the same as the ones you would take for your degree studies, and they will be accepted as part of your degree. The students can complete the amount of studies they wish to. The studies are subject to a fee.

Regulations concerning the right of absence

Students, who have accepted the Master's Degree study place in studies beginning after 1 August 2015

A student may during the studies enrol as a non-attending student based on service in accordance with the Conscription Act, Non-military Service Act or Act on Women's Voluntary Military Service, or maternity, paternity or parental leave without expending the study period. In these cases, the student must submit an official document that verifies the reason for the absence to the Student Services through which the non-attendance enrolment is made. In addition to this, a student may, for other reasons, enrol as a non-attending student for two semesters without expending the study period. Please, read the regulations concerning the first study year from above in the section "Instructions for new students".

Students, who have accepted the Master's Degree study place in studies beginning before 1 August 2015

Students are recorded as attending by the Student Services. For a special reason a Master's Degree student can enrol as a non-attending student for up to two semesters. The non-attendance enrolments of those completing a Master's Degree are done through the Student Services. Enrolment for non-attendance does not reduce the maximum study period.
