A certificate of student status is a free-of-charge certificate of attendance or non-attendance available to all degree students of the University of Helsinki. You can use the certificate to prove that you are a student at the University of Helsinki if your student card or transcript of studies is not considered sufficient.
The easiest way to obtain a certificate of student status is to order one in Sisu. You can obtain the certificate in Finnish, Swedish or English. For detailed instructions, please see the page Downloading a transcript of studies or a certificate of student status.
If you cannot order an electronically verified certificate of student status in Sisu (e.g., your user account is not valid), you can send a request to Student Services by email: email@example.com. We will send the electronically verified certificate to you by email. When placing an order, be sure to state your student number. You can also order and collect a printed certificate of student status from Student Services at Kaisa House.
