Tuition-free management – UU application procedure

Tuition-free management – UU application procedure

Application procedure for tuition fee-free governorship in 2021-2022

When you submit your individual application for an officer/rep bursary digitally via OSIRIS-Zaak, you can indicate whether you want to manage without tuition fees and which variant you want: old-style or new-style. In order to provide full-time student governors with clarity as to whether or not they are eligible for the tuition fee-free facility, old or new style, before 1 September 2021, these applications will be given priority.

You should therefore apply for tuition fee-free management in good time (but not later than 1 October 2021). Please note that you will not be able to make retroactive arrangements for matters such as (re)enrolment, study funding and applying for a student public transport chipcard if it turns out that you are not eligible for option 2 (old-style tuition fee-free management).

What do you need to do as a student for tuition fee-free management old-style (option 1)?

You must arrange the following matters yourself before 1 September 2021:

  • Do not activate or cancel re-enrolment for academic year 2021-2022.
  • Stop the study financing with effect form 1-9-2021
  • Stop the student public transport chip card┬áper 1-9-2021
  • Download an agreement with the educational institution in OSIRIS-Zaak, sign it and upload it within three weeks in OSIRIS-Zaak. You will find this agreement in OSIRIS-Zaak if you have indicated that you want old-style tuition fees-free enrolment.

What do you have to do as a student for new-style tuition fee-free management (option 2)?

You must arrange the following matters yourself before 1 September 2021:

  • Activate your (re-)enrolment for your first bachelor or master for the 2021-2022 academic year.
  • Issue the authorisation to pay tuition fees. Only after the Executive Board has approved your application will the authorisation to pay tuition fees be withdrawn. If you have already paid a portion of the tuition fees in the meantime, you will be reimbursed.
  • Continue to receive your study funding with effect from 1-9-2021. This is one of the conditions to get an administrative scholarship.
  • Do not stop the student OV-chipkaart per 1-9-2021. It is a big misunderstanding that by only stopping the student OV-chipcard you save months of student OV-chipcard for a period after your administrative year.
  • When you apply for an officer/rep bursary, indicate in the OSIRIS case that you want to apply for a new-style student governorship free of tuition fees. Then you have to submit the application for an officer/rep bursary. If it is approved, you will be notified by e-mail and the authorisation for payment of tuition fees by the UU will be removed.
