Now what?

This is the moment you wave your student life goodbye. Luckily, we have made it easy for you with this checklist.


  • Terminate your enrolment by submitting a request via Studielink and keep a processing time in mind of maximum1.5 month. If you do not terminate your enrolment, you will have to pay a tuition fee for a longer period. Please note: when submitting your request please indicate that you have graduated and as of which date you would like to terminate your enrolment. Be aware that the first possibility to terminate your enrolment is the last day of the month in which you have graduated.
  • If you are receiving a student grant, make sure to cancel this on time via MijnDUO.
  • If you have an OV-kaart (public transport card) you are also required to cancel this yourself via MijnDUO.
  • Obtain a digital epitome of your diploma at (Dutch) free of charge. This specimen has the same value as a certified copy of your diploma. Be aware: a BSN-number and a DigiD is required for this.
  • Keep in mind: about 1 – 1,5 year after your graduation you will receive an invitation for the national survey HBO Monitor.
  • Sign up with the Holland Alumni network! This network aims to facilitate an international network of Holland alumni, future alumni, Holland Alumni associations, Dutch higher education institutions, Dutch embassies and other relevant organisations.
  • We certainly hope this is not the end of our relationship, so stay in touch with us and with your fellow alumni. Therefore, we would like to point out some interesting network possibilities. Of course, you can also follow us on social media.

Important information regarding the termination of your enrolment: When you graduate in June, July or August, you will be deregistered automatically on 31 August. Consequently, a request through Studielink isn’t necessary. As a result, you will have to pay tuition fees until 31 August, but until that date you may keep your student grant and you may keep using your OV-kaart (public transport card).
