Registration as Present/Absent for the Academic Year 2020/21
First-year students can only register as absent on statutory grounds (source: Polytechnics Act 325/2015 § 29-30)
1) to complete Finnish national service in accordance with the Conscription Act (1438/2007), Non-Military Service Act (1446/2007), or Act on Voluntary Military Service for Women (194/1995); Supporting document to be sent to email@example.com : The Finnish assignment to service to demonstrate that the service will be completed during the academic year.
2) if on maternity, paternity or parental leave;
Supporting document to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org : Kela’s certificate of maternity, paternity or parental allowance period or, if one is not yet available, a medical certificate of the pregnancy. Paternity leave can only be demonstrated with Kela’s certificate. Equivalent certificates of statutory parental leaves given by foreign authorities are also accepted.
3) if unable to begin the studies due to an illness or disability.
Supporting document to be sent to email@example.com : The Finnish sickness allowance decision or, if not available, a medical certificate. The illness or disability as well as the fact that it prevents beginning the studies on 1 August 2020 has to be stated on the medical certificate. Sufficient documentation of obstacles caused by practical arrangements related to the illness or disability, for example a student housing foundation’s certificate of queuing for a special needs flat. The student’s personal notification is not enough. It also has to be demonstrated how the issue will be handled. Disability is a permanent state and thus it is not enough to refer to the disability. There has to be temporary disability-related grounds for absence.
