Discontinuation or Interruption of Studies / Applying for a Certificate

Applying for a Certificate

Graduating students will apply for a certificate electronically.

The electronic certificate application is available via the electronic service widget in the student’s personal ELMO dashboard, under Forms, End of Studies. 

When the student has filled out the form, it will be first assigned to the Study Affairs Coordinator, who will check the required information in the transcript of records. The Study Affairs Coordinator will then forward the application electronically to the programme’s Head of Department, who approves the student’s certificate application. The approved application will return to the Study Affairs Coordinator, who will then prepare the certificate. 

During the process, the student will be reminded of matters such as responding to the student feedback survey, their obligations towards the library and of returning keys and any borrowed material.

  • Final feedback questionnaire for teacher education students who started their studies before 2021 is in Optima learning environment (Personal Development as a Vocational Teacher -> Learning task 5. Assessment discussion)
  • Final feedback questionnaire for teacher education students who started their studies in 2021 is in Moodle learning environment.

Certificate applications are processed every second (2nd) and fourth (4th) Monday of each month. The application must be delivered to the Student Services one week prior at the latest. If your assessment date falls on a weekday holiday, the processing will be moved to the next ordinary weekday. In July the student services office is closed and the applications can not be processed. 

Upon completion and acceptance of all required work, the School of Professional Teacher Education accredits the student the certificate. The date of processing the application will be considered the students' graduation date. The certificate will be posted to students approximately in 3 weeks after graduation.

Interruptions in Studies

If the student wishes to enroll for non-attendance, he is to apply for it. The permission is granted by the Director of the School of Professional Teacher Education and for special reasons only (due to long-term illness, maternity/paternity leave or military service). Application form for non-attendance can be found in Instructions and forms.

If granted, the Study Affairs Coordinator enters the enrollment for non-attendance in Peppi student management system. An enrollment for attendance can be changed into an enrollment for non-attendance or vice-versa during an enrollment period only. Due to the nature of the studies, enrolling for non-attendance holds no significant relevance on the practical level - a period of non-attendance is included in the maximum period of studies. However, it is important to agree on the practical implications of a possible non-attendance with one’s own educator. 

In case the student decides to definitely give up his study entitlement during a period of non-attendance, he is to submit a notification in writing to the Office or electronically in student's Elmo dashboard. The electronic form is available in the student's electronic service widget in the ELMO dashboard, under Forms, End of Studies.
 

Discontinuation of Studies

In case the student decides to definitely give up his study entitlement, he is to submit a separate electronic form in student's ELMO dashboard. The electronic form is available in the student's electronic service widget in the ELMO dashboard, under Forms, End of Studies.

By returning the form the student will withdraw from his studies at Jamk University of Applied Sciences. The student must check that all grades are registered in Peppi. After withdrawing the student can´t get grades anymore.
