From your second consecutive year at Hasselt University, you need to re-register.

Starting 11 July, you can re-register from your student file. After re-registering, you'll receive an email with the data needed to transfer an advance for the tuition fees. 

You should re-register as soon as possible, and certainly before the start of the academic year. Re-registering will not be possible after 1 October, because your user number and password will expire on that date.

Information concerning the extension of the resident permit for non-EEA students can be found on this page.
