Readmission to studies



CASE A)
The student has started his/her studies before 1st August 2015


If you have started your studies at Karelia University of Applied Sciences or another university of applied sciences before 1st August 2015 and have lost your right to study for the following reasons
• you have not completed the degree during the set duration of studies or the discre­tionary extension period, or
• you have neglected your oblig­ation to enroll as a student, or
• you have resigned from the university of applied sciences
you can reapply for the right to study to complete your degree.

The right to study can be regranted if you need to complete less than 60 credits for a Bachelor’s degree or less than 30 credits for a Master’s degree. If you need more than 60 credits to complete your Bachelor’s degree or more than 30 credits to complete your Master’s degree, you will be directed to complete the missing studies via Open UAS, and to reapply for the right to study once you have the necessary amount of credits or more.

The right to study can only be granted for the same or equiv­alent degree education as the previous right to study. The right to study will be regranted for a maximum of two semesters, starting from the next semester. Students with a regranted right to study cannot enrol as absent and they are not entitled to discre­tionary extension.
You can apply for the regranted right to study either in joint appli­cation or in a separate Karelia UAS appli­cation in the studyinfo.fi service.

The separate appli­cation of Karelia UAS is twice a year; 16th – 30th November and 1st – 15th May.

When applying in a separate appli­cation, please note that the regranted right to study is covered by the One study place per term provision. If you are regranted the right to study for a degree, you will no longer be able to accept another degree-awarding study place during the same semester.

Attach­ments of the appli­cation
• an official transcript of records of the previ­ously completed studies in pdf-format
a plan for completing the remaining studies signed by the study counsellor, and
• a receipt of the paid processing fee.

In addition, students in English-mediated education (studies are started before 1st August 2017) shall also attach a receipt of the paid tuition fee.

Appli­cation processing fee
As defined by the Government Decree (1440/2014), 3 §, an appli­cation processing fee of EUR 50 will be charged of each appli­cation regardless of the appli­cation being approved or rejected.
