You can cancel your enrolment (application) until the start of your study programme:

  • When enrolling per 1 September you can withdraw your enrolment application until 31 August at the latest
  • When enrolling per 1 February you can withdraw your enrolment application until 31 January at the latest

If you want to cancel your enrolment (application), you can do so via Studielink.

If you are too late, cancellation is no longer possible and you will have to submit a request for termination of enrolment via Studielink if you want to end your study programme, you will then need to pay (part of) the tuition fee.

Tuition fees
If your enrolment has been cancelled and you are not enrolled in any other study programmes at Utrecht University, then you do not owe the university tuition fees.

  • If you have already paid any tuition fees, these will be refunded.
  • If you’ve confirmed a digital direct-debit authorisation, then the cancellation of your enrolment (application) renders it null and void. No tuition fees will be debited after cancellation.

Student grant and travel card DUO
When you cancel your enrolment (application) and you are not enrolled in any other study programmes at Utrecht University or elsewhere, then you need to stop your student grant and travel card from DUO, since you are no longer entitled to these if you are not a student. Stop them as of the starting date of the cancelled study programme, meaning 1 September or 1 February (for some programmes) and be sure to do so before this date.
