Deregistration

Bachelor's and Master's students at the University of Groningen must register each year for that academic year. The academic year runs from 1 September to 31 August. You are automatically deregistered at the end of the academic year unless you reregister for another year.

Deregistering  during the academic year

If you want to leave your degree programme during an academic year, you can submit a request for deregistration via Studielink. Such a request must be submitted before the end of the academic year or else it will nob be processed. Your registration will then be ended as of the first day of the following month. The deregistration procedure section explains in more detail how to deregister.

Exceptions

  • In the event of graduation, deregistration will take effect on the first day of the month after the month in which the final assessment is passed (the date on the degree certificate). You must submit a request for deregistration via Studielink yourself - this does not happen automatically.
  • In the event of death, deregistration will take effect on the date on which the student died.

Reimbursement of tuition fees

You are entitled to reimbursement of the tuition fees paid for the months during which you are no longer registered.

Please note

From the moment you are officially deregistered from the University of Groningen:

  • you will no longer be entitled to student finance from DUO or a student travel card.
  • you will no longer be permitted to follow course units and sit examinations.
