Return Policy

Return Policy

The return policy of tuition fees at Novia UAS is stated below

 Return policy for tuition fees (new students)

 The tuition fee is returned in the following situations only:

  • If the residence permit application is rejected by the Finnish Immigration Service and the student can provide a copy of the negative decision to the Admissions Services (only for full-time studies/or studies that require regular contact studies). A precondition for refund of tuition fee is that no irregularities appear in the decision from the Finnish Immigration Service. For online degrees no refund is possible based on a negative residence permit application as the online studies do not require contact studies in Finland.

  • If the student’s residence permit status changes during the autumn semester so that she/he no longer is required to pay fees, and can show evidence of this in connection with the start of the studies. Notice if this is the case the permit must be valid from 1.8 for the autumn semester and from 1.1 for the spring semester.

  • The student has been admitted conditionally and the condition is not met (for example does not meet health requirements for the degree).

  • The degree programme is not offered/or cancelled.

  • A condition for all refunds of tuition fees is that no studies have been completed within the study right. 


Contact the Admissions Services at Novia UAS if you wish to apply for a refund.
