The services may be used until the end of the school year in which you graduate. For example, if a student graduates on 16.10, he or she has the right to use the services until the end of the spring semester, on 31.7, provided that he or she has a valid student card.

The right to study and present attendance may be checked from the student card and the student registry. Students will receive, if necessary, proof from the student and administration service (UEF) or the student services (Savonia).
