You should check your spam box - the instruction email might have fallen there. If you still don´t find it, please contact your coordinator so that he or she can send you the email again or see the instructions above.
I don´t have a payment card to pay the fee online in IS Shopping Centre.
You can use other´s payment card. Ask your parents or friends.
I will arrive in the middle of orientation week and did not pay. Can I participate in some events?
You can go for events and activities which are compulsory or free for everyone as well as activities where you can pay-on-spot (pay the entrance fee).
I cannot come for the orientation week as well as the admission day.
It is not compulsory to participate in the orientation week, however, highly recommended. We will help you to arrange most of important things during orientation week that is why it is useful to arrive on time. Otherwise, you will have to ask for individual appointment with your coordinator.
