6. Pay the healthcare fee TODAY 2.10.!

Students can pay the autumn term healthcare fee today 2 October 2023 at the latest!

The due date for payments of the autumn term healthcare fee for higher education students was 30 September 2023. OmaKela was unavailable due to a maintenance break on the original due date of the healthcare fee, so students were not be able to pay the fee on that date.

It was therefore decided to extend the payment period for students so payments can be made via OmaKela on Monday 2 October 2023.

If the student pays the healthcare fee not later than 2 October 2023, they will not be sent a payment reminder and they will not have to pay the EUR 5 late fee.
