You need to register for each course that you take. You can do this via My LTU > Register/apply > Registration during the first tree days of each quarter unless otherwise notified. Remember that when the first three days of the quarter have ended, the reserve admissions process begins. This means that you may lose you place to a person on the reserve list if there are reserves and you have failed to register for the course during the registration period. If you have any questions concerning course registration, please contact the Student Reception Desk via the contact form below.

This applies to programme students only. In order to make sure you keep your place on the programme, you are required to personally register on Registration Day at the place you will be studying. Remember to bring your ID.

I have special reasons to delay my studies

If you are admitted to a course  or programme and are not able to start your studies that term you can apply for deferement of studies. Permission of deferment of studies is usually granted for one year and no longer than 18 months unless there are special circumstances that require longer time.

Valid reasons for deferment. The reasons for deferral of studies may entail social, medical or other particular circumstances e.g care of child, military service - including basic military education and time-limited trial perios aervice in the Armed Forces, student union assignment or denied leave of absence for studies from your employer. Deferment of studies cannot be granted for reasons concerning housing/accomodation or your current economic situation.

Applying for deferment. You must submit proof of the reasons for your deferment. Certified copies of official documents that support the circumstances of your case must be submitted. Send the documents to or: Luleå University of Technology, Registrar, SE-971 87 Luleå, SWEDEN. Before you apply for deferment you must accept your offer to the course or programme otherwise you will loose your place and cannot be granted deferment. You need to apply for deferment well before the compulsory registrationday.  If you are not granted deferment and do not register in the given time you will lose your place on the course/programme.

If you are granted deferment. If you are granted deferment you need to save the decision.
