If you do not registered as either present or absent by 31 August (or by 15 January for the Spring term), you will lose your right to study at Hanken and must re-activate your student status if you wish to continue your studies. For this you need to fill in an application for re-matriculation and pay a fee of 35 €, the payment information is on the application form. Submit the application form and the receipt of the payment to the ServicePoint in Helsinki or to the Office of Study Affairs in Vaasa.
The decision will generally be made within 1-2 weeks and you will be informed by email or phone whether or not the application has been approved. If your application is approved, you should pay the student union fee and register as present at the ServicePoint in Helsinki or at the Office of Study Affairs in Vaasa. Please note that the re-matriculation fee is to be paid to Hanken (Svenska handelshögskolan) and the student union fee to the Student Union (Svenska Handelshögskolans Studentkår).
