Students are, by law, required to register for each academic year (Polytechnics Act 29 §). At Arcada, registration for the academic year shall be made every year during the time 15 April – 15 September.

How do I register?

At Arcada, students register for the entire academic year at the same time. Your registration for autumn (periods 1 and 2), must be the same, which means either present or absent for both periods. The same rule applies to spring term (periods 3 and 4). In other words, it is not possible to register as present for only one period in autumn or in spring. All students shall register online no later than 15 September.

You cannot register as present or absent for a longer time than what remains of your right to study/time of absence.

If you have been granted extended right to study you do not have the right to register as absent.

If you have more than one study place at Arcada you shall register separately for all of them. 

Register now!

It only takes a couple minutes. If you forget to do it you will lose your right to study.

Registration is open
