If you want to terminate your enrolment because you obtained your degree certificate or because you want to stop your studies, follow the steps below.
After requesting to terminate your enrolment in Studielink , the UvA will terminate your enrolment on the last day of the month in which you wish to end enrolment. If you submit your request after 31 May, your enrolment will not be terminated until 31 August. Enrolment termination with retroactive effect is not possible.
If you are terminating your enrolment because you are graduating, you must request to terminate your enrolment in Studielink giving the reason ’graduation’. The UvA will then terminate your enrolment on the 1st of the month following your graduation date. If you submit your request after 31 May, your enrolment will not be terminated until 31 August.
It could be that your programme requires extra steps, if so you can find them on the programme's website. More information is available under Degree certificate.
