The Regulation for claiming your study place

To claim your study place at Chalmers, you must be an active student as of the first semester after being admitted to a new program. You must have knowledge of the terms and conditions and make sure that your study commitment meets the conditions stated below1.

It follows that you yourself must contact the Student guidance counsellor at your program as soon as possible, in case of illness or other circumstance that could mean that you do not meet the conditions3.

Terms and Conditions

Being an active student means meeting the following conditions:
1. You must register for the courses in your curriculum, prior to commencing the semester.
The mandatory registration must be completed by the set date and in the manner specified by the University, prior to your first semester of a new program2 and 3.
2. You must actively pursue full-time studies, throughout the first semester, on the programme to which you have been admitted.
Full-time studies mean being registered on courses of 30 credits in total per semester, during the first semester2 and 3.
3. You must complete at least 15 credits with at least a pass, during the first semester, on the programme to which you have been admitted2 and 3.
  • For those admitted to the autumn semester, the re-sit examination days in January are included.
  • For those admitted to the spring semester, the re-sit examination days in August are included.
4. Before the start of your second semester, you must register for the courses included in said semester, on the programme to which you have been admitted.
You must register by the set date and in the manner specified by the University4.
5. You must heed all summons and read information provided by your Programme director, Student guidance counsellor and Chalmers student administration throughout the entire study period.
This means that you regularly, every week, read your e-mail and current information published at Chalmers Student Portal. You yourself are responsible for logging in to Ladok and registering the e-mail address at which you wish to be contacted, on "My information". You must stay reachable during the entire study period.

Footnotes

  1. Should you fail to comply with the terms of the regulation, you may lose your study place. A decision to revoke your study place can be appealed. The appeal must be filed in writing with the university's registrar within three weeks from the when the decision was announced.
  2. For a student admitted to the later part of a program (to the second or third year of a basic program), an individual study plan is drawn up, which may mean deviations from the requirements in sections 2 and 3.
  3. A student can be granted an individual study plan for personal reasons. An individual study plan may mean deviations from the requirements in paragraphs 2 and 3. It is the student's own responsibility to contact the Student guidance counsellor at your programme as soon as a valid reason has arisen. Both parties are required to approve an individual study plan in consensus.
  4. Approved leave from studies can be granted at the earliest after a semester's studies on the education programme to which you have been admitted. The Student guidance counsellor at your programme can approve an application for a study leave.

The regulation has been decided by the vice President of Education and Lifelong Learning and will apply until further notice, case nr C 2019-1218.
