Campus administration:


In the event of reimbursement of a semester fee, you will have to hand in your Student ID. If you have any other questions regarding the semester fee, please contact the campus administration.

Studying at more than one university/university college?

If you are studying at more than one university/university college, you only need to pay a fee to the Foundation for Student Life at one of the institutions while the materials/copy fee must be paid at both institutions.

External examination venues

Examinations are normally held at the institution where the programme is taught. However, you can apply to take the examination at an external examination venue.

In such case, the student must pay an administration fee per exam to Østfold University College:
-Exams taken at another Norwegian university college/university: NOK 700 per exam.
-Exams taken abroad at an embassy, consulate or higher education institution: NOK 1,000 per exam.

The fee does not apply to students studying abroad at another institution as part of an exchange programme, nor does it apply to students taking oral examinations online.

Students must also cover the fees (for exam invigilators, venue, administration etc.) required by the institution where the exam is taking place. You must pay this directly to the examination venue.

External students taking an exam at Østfold University College

Students from other university colleges/universities who are not registered as students at Østfold University College must pay NOK 1,000 per exam and additional costs relating to exam invigilators.
