Frequently asked questions

Frequently asked questions

Why can’t I register for a course or semester via the web registration?

It could be that the web registration hasn’t opened yet. The web registration opens one week before the course start/roll call. When you are admitted to a programme you need to be registered as a student at Jönköping University and to the programme at the beginning of each semester. You can find more information about your registration here.

Do you still have problems with your registration you can contact us here.

 

Why can’t I update my JU card with new stamps?

You can’t update your JU card before you have paid the Student Union fee. The fee is to be paid every semester online or at the Student Service desk in the Student house.

If you are a fee paying student, the Student Union fee is included in the tuition fee. If you can't update your card, please wait a few days then try again. If it still doesn't work, please contact staff at the Student Service desk in the Student house.

You can find many questions and answers about the JU-card here.


How can I get a Transcript of Records/Certificate of Registration?

You can download a verifiable Transcript of Records via Ladok web services. If you need a Certificate of Registration, another type of certificate or a certificate with a stamp you are welcome to contact us.

 

What does a parking permit cost?

A parking permit costs 250 Swedish kronor per month. Every month on the 25th we start the sale of students parking permits for the next month. If the 25th is a holiday we will start the sale next working day. We have a limited number of parking permits and these are often sold out quick. You need to show your JU card with a valid stamp that you have paid the Student Union fee when you buy the parking permit. You pay the Student Union fee at the Student Union.

 

Can I buy a parking permit for the whole semester?

No, we do not sell parking permits for the whole semester any more.
