Is this academic year the first time you have been enrolled in a Bachelor’s programme and do you wish to terminate your enrolment? Or would you like to prevent a negative binding study advice (dismissal) from your study programme? Then there are a few things you need to take care of.
Preventing a binding study advice
If you terminate your enrolment before 1 February in the first year of your Bachelor’s programme, you will NOT receive a negative binding study advice for your programme. You must submit a request for termination of enrolment via Studielink no later than 31 January in order for your enrolment to be terminated as of 1 February. After termination, you will only owe tuition fees for the months you were enrolled (1/12th per month of enrolment).
This rule does not apply to the bachelor of Medicine.
Please note! Do not forget to stop your student grant and travel card from DUO as of the date your enrolment is terminated (if you receive these) and do so before this date.
DUO “1 February regulation”
Was this academic year your first time receiving a student grant and travel card from DUO? If so, you may call upon DUO’s “1 February regulation”. This entails that if you stop your student grant and travel card with DUO before 1 February, the first few (maximum 5) months of your student grant will be converted into a gift (instead of a loan). These months will still be deducted of the maximum number of months you are entitled to a student grant and travel card from DUO.
Please note! To make use of this DUO regulation, you are not required to terminate your enrolment at Utrecht University as of 1 February. This is only a requirement in order to prevent a negative binding study advice for your study programme.
