Can I backdate the termination of my student registration?

No, it is not possible to back-date the termination of your student registration, in other words you cannot de-register with retroactive effect.

Student registration can only be terminated at the earliest as of the first of the month following the month in which you submit a request to de-register. Requests to terminate student registration must be done via Studielink, unless you are following a non-government subsidised programme in which case you must use a ‘termination of registration form’.

Do not forget to also cancel your Dutch student finance and student travel pass (OV-kaart) if applicable. For more information contact the Front Office of the Student Affairs Department at Plexus Student Centre.
