Discontinuation of the right to study
A student will lose the right to study for the following reasons:
- failing to register as attending or non-attending by the deadline
- failing to finish his or her studies within the period prescribed by law and any discretionary extension period granted
- resigning at his or her own request
- failing to pay the tuition fee for the academic year by the deadline given by the university of applied sciences, if he or she is obliged to pay such a fee, and not registering as non-attending.
Regranting the right to study after neglecting to register for the academic year or pay the tuition fee for the academic year or resigning
In accordance with section 32 of the Universities of Applied Sciences Act (932/2014), a student who has lost his or her right to study after neglecting to register as attending or non-attending for the academic year or after resigning may reapply to the university of applied sciences for admission without participating in the student selection procedure.
The right to study can be regranted if the student has the possibility to complete the remaining studies within the period of the right to study. Metropolia considers the academic terms spent and those remaining when granting a period of the right to study.
If a student who is obliged to pay tuition fees fails to pay the tuition fee for an academic year by the deadline without registering as non-attending, he or she may reapply for the right to study in accordance with the procedure above.

The student may be asked for further explanation to support the decision on regranting the right to study.
The right to study is regranted for a maximum of two academic terms, beginning from the start of the following term. A student whose right to study has been regranted may not register as non-attending nor apply for a discretionary extension period.
