Registering to courses and the order of priority at Aalto ARTS
Registering to courses and the order of priority
Students must register to courses in the registration period in order to participate and complete courses. Sisu is used for registration to courses.
- As a main rule, registration to courses starts 28 days before the period of the course starts and ends 7 days before the period (if the course has a limited number of spaces) or 7 days after the period starts.
- If a course has some other registration period, it can be seen in Sisu.
- It is the responsibility of the programme and teacher to inform of special registration times.
- NOTICE! The courses do dot always start in the start of the period. Still the registation to courses is before the period starts. For special reasons the registering period can differ from these guidelines, please check the times from Sisu.

Decision of the Academic Committee on Arts, Design and Architecture of 16 June 2021.
The order of priority is as follows since August 9, 2021:
1. Students of the program / major whose program / major studies include the course
2. Exchange students in the program / major for whose study plan the course has been approved
In addition, it has been possible to set quotas for the following students for the course
3. students whose course is part of a minor subject
4. students who have applied for the course through various mobility studies (JOO studies, separate studies, etc.)
The remaining places can be filled by students from the following target groups:
5. other ARTS students
6. Aalto students
Courses that are cross-disciplinary by default, can use the order of priority that is compatible with the course's learning objectives (eg. UWAS and elective art and theory courses offered by TAS). However, the university's obligation to organize the studies in a manner that allows the students to complete their studies within the normative duration of studies applies in these cases too. Quotas for different groups of students can be set for courses for a justified reason.
The order of priority does not override the teacher's right to set prerequisites for the course.
If the course is so popular that only some of the students in the program / major can be accepted, the university's obligation to arrange the studies in a way that allows students to complete their studies within the normative duration may be taken into account.
