Membership fee refunds must be applied no later than
- 30 September for the autumn term
- 31 January for the spring term
Enrolled in More than One University
If a student is enrolled as an attending student in more than university, he/she must pay in full the membership fees of the student unions of all the universities in question.
The student can apply for a FSHS health care fee refund from the student union to which he/she made the payment last. The refund application must be handed in by 30.9. for autumn term and by 31.1. for spring term.
In AYY, applying for the refund is submitted in writing with the form below. The necessary receipts must be attached to the application. The refund is made after the deadline for applications has passed.
The academic year sticker can only be collected from the same student union that issued the student’s student ID card. So, at AYY service points only those who have paid the AYY membership fee and have an AYY student ID card may receive stickers on their cards. Student ID cards issued by the former student unions of Helsinki School of Economics (KY), University of Art and Design Helsinki (TOKYO) and Helsinki University of Technology (TKY) also count as AYY student ID cards.
If you graduate in the beginning of a term or you decide to change your registration infromation, you may apply for a membership fee refund from the student union. Those who graduate later during autumn term may apply for a refund of the spring term membership fee.
Changing your attendance status from non-attending to attending student
During the enrolment period, you can change your attendance status from non-attending to attending student in WebOodi (see under ‘Enrolment as an attending student and payment in WebOodi’), while outside the enrolment period you can change your status by paying the AYY membership fee with a general reference number for that term and submitting the receipt to the student service desk of your school to have your enrolment registered in the student information system. A bank-issued transaction identification number must be visible on the receipt. Send the receipt to the student service desk by e-mail, where you must also remember to include your name and student number. You can also deliver the receipt in person to the student service desk. Once the information has been entered into the student information system, AYY will send you a sticker for your student card.
Changing your attendance status from attending student to non-attending student
Please note that changing your status from attending to non-attending student is only possible during the enrolment period. Visit the student service desk of your school during the enrolment period to register the change and to have the sticker on your student card replaced/removed. Alternatively, you can request the change by mail: submit your student card by mail so we can remove the sticker, and also confirm your current address.
As a non-attending student, you can apply for a refund of the student union membership fee: fill out the relevant form (below) and submit it to AYY no later than on 30 September for the autumn term and no later than on 31 January for the spring term. AYY will pay the membership fees for the terms in question into your bank account in the month following the deadline.
Please note that the enrolment period may end before the deadline for applying for a refund of the AYY membership fee.
Exchange students can join the student union if they wish to do so. However, for students who have joined the Student Union voluntarily, the membership fee will not be refunded in case they cancel their membership.
