First class and registration

At the first class, you will receive important information about the course and the requirements in relation to examination and grading. If you are unable to make the first class, contact the department responsible for the course in advance. Registration to the course is required to be able to attend classes, and will activate your insurance and student account.

Admitted to a freestanding course

If you are admitted to a freestanding course, you are usually able to register online. Online registration will be open in Ladok one week before the course starts. To be able to register online, you need to activate your student IT account first.

If you cannot register online, your teacher can also register you at the roll call/first lecture. Note: The Study guidance and the Admissions Office at SLU cannot register students.

You will find your schedule on the course page. Use the course serach tool to find your course page. 

If you are admitted after the program or course has started

If you have been admitted to a program or course that has already started, it is important that you participate in the classes as soon as possible. 

Find your schedule:

  1. Start by finding your program on the program pages.
  2. Select your program and then click on the schedule.
  3. Click on the course name and select the schedule.

Access card

Once you are registered in an SLU course, you will receive an email informing you that you can pick up your access card from the service centre. It can take up to two days from registration before you receive this email.

Check that you are registered as a student before you visit the service centre. You can check if you are registered at Ladok Student from the Student web start page.

When collecting your card, you will need to bring ID and sign a receipt for your access card. You will be given your personal access card, the terms of use, information about how the card works and the PIN for the card. The PIN is generated automatically by the system and cannot be changed.
