Payment Instructions

To register as an attending basic degree student for the Aalto University, you must pay the Aalto University Student Union (AYY) membership fee. The membership fee for AYY’s basic degree students includes the mandatory Finnish Student Health Service (FSHS) health care fee, which entitles you to use the services of the FSHS health centers. Other fees are optional (membership fees for guilds for example).

As a member of the Student Union, you are entitled to many benefits and discounts. You may order a student ID card, and you are entitled to discounts on public transport (VR and Matkahuolto). You are also entitled to the student meal subsidy and to use the health care services of the FSHS.

If you already have a username and password for WebOodi (the University’s study portal, https://oodi.aalto.fi), you should pay your membership fee and enroll for the academic year using it. You must pay the membership fee as an online payment via your online bank or using a credit card, and your enrollment will be registered to the student register automatically.

The enrollment period for the academic year 2018-2019 starts on the 2nd of May and ends on the 14th of September 2018. You should register as attending or non-attending for the full academic year.

There is also a separate registration period for the spring semester of 2019, during which you can change your registration information if necessary. The enrollment period for the spring semester of 2019 starts on the 26th of November 2018 and ends on the 14th of January 2019.

Please note that students may change their status from non-attending to attending also outside the enrollment period, but changing the status from attending to non-attending is only possible during the enrollment period.

Payment Instructions

  1. Primary enrollment method (payment via WebOodi)

The enrollment is primarily done via WebOodi by paying the mandatory and voluntary fees using your online banking account details. This way, your payment and enrollment will be registered to the student register automatically.

If you cannot pay via WebOodi using your online bank, you can print out a personal bank transfer form for the payment. In this case, you must deliver the receipt to your school’s Student Services Office before the end of the enrollment period in order to have your registration entered in the student register. The archive code must be stated in the receipt. Send the receipt via email along with your name and student number. You can also deliver the receipt personally to the Student Services Office. You can find the details and opening hours for the Student Services Offices at https://into.aalto.fi/display/contact/Contact.

You can also send the receipt via email to opiskelijapalvelut@aalto.fi. If you do this, your payment will be processed and registered to the WebOodi system.

  1. Secondary enrollment method (payment using your student number as the bank reference number)

  1. Tertiary enrollment method (payment using a general bank reference number)

If you do not have a username and password for WebOodi and you do not yet have a student number, you can pay the membership fee following these instructions and using a general bank reference number as the reference number.

Payee account number: Handelsbanken

IBAN FI7831311001177934

The archive code must be stated in the receipt. Send the receipt via email along with your name and student number. You can also deliver the receipt personally to the Student Services Office.

  1. Payment with cash or credit card at AYY’s service point

If you are unable to pay your membership fee in advance (and especially if you have problems paying using your bank details from outside the EU), you are welcome to make your payment at AYY’s service point with either cash or credit card. Payment is possible with commonly accepted credit cards (e.g. Visa, Mastercard). If you pay with cash, please reserve the exact amount to speed up the process.)

 

New students

First-year students pay the membership fee according to the instructions given by University via Opintopolku: https://into.aalto.fi/display/enuudet/After+admission+to+Bachelor%27s+studies

Please note that after accepting their offer of admission, first-year students can register as non-attending only due to military or non-military service, parental leave or personal health reasons or injury. In addition, from the 1st of August 2015 onwards, in addition to the reasons stated above, students can register as non-attending for a maximum of two semesters without their study period being consumed.
