Exmatriculation - deletion from the matriculation register - means exclusion from the list of students. The student can continue their studies as an external student by being re-matriculated or seeking re-admission.
A student is deleted from the matriculation register:
- in connection with the completion of the curriculum in full (usual graduation);
- at the request of the student (application* approved the programme director must be delivered to the dean's office);
- upon expiry of the final date of studies;
- in the event of failure to pay the tuition fees by the due date;
- if the student is matriculated or rematriculated to another curriculum;
- if the student studying in a joint curriculum has been deleted from the matriculation register of the university coordinating the joint curriculum;
- in the event of first-year students (except doctoral students) who have not registered for courses within the first two weeks of the academic year;
- if a part-time student (except doctoral student) has not registered for courses (excl. graduation thesis or exam) without a good reason within the first two weeks of the semester;
- if a student sent to Estonian language intensive programme fails to complete the programme by the end of the nominal period of study;
- in the event of inappropriate behaviour:
- academic fraud:
- using materials not permitted in an exam;
- engaging in an exchange of knowledge (providing answers to or copying answers from a fellow student) which is not permitted in an exam;
- submitting someone else’s paper in their own name;
- participating in an assessment of learning outcomes for another student;
- resubmitting work if they have already received credit points for it (except when teaching staff has allowed it);
- committing an intentional criminal offence; or
- due to a lack of progress:
- if the total number of credit points upon completion of the curriculum is less than 50% of the estimated total of the period of study (this is verified at the end of each academic year). In the first year, it is also verified at the end of the autumn semester;
- if a negative examination result has been recorded four times in one course (the times are calculated as of the negative results obtained in the 2007/2008 academic year). The exam time is considered as exhausted also in the event of ‘not present’;
- if a student receives a negative grade for the final exam twice or a negative grade for the defence of their graduation thesis twice; or
- the doctoral student is assessed negatively at the progress review or cannot be assessed.
- in the Faculty of Medicine, if less than 100% of the volume of the compulsory courses has been completed; or a negative result has been obtained in the same compulsory or elective course three times.
