I want to apply for a force majeure allowance. How do I do that?
You can fill in the online application form. This is only possible when you (still) have a UT-student account. The UT-student account expires 3 months after de-enrolment. If that is the case, please contact the registry of the Personal Circumstance Committee (CPO).
What kind of proof do I have to submit and how do I do that?
You can email the necessary proof to the registry of the Personal Circumstance Committee (CPO). Which proof is necessary, depends on the circumstances for which you apply. For:
Illness (incl. psychological disorders) and a physical, sensory or other impairment:
a certificate of your doctor or psychologist. You can use the standard medical certificate. You can contact the doctor on campus.
Pregnancy and childbirth: a certificate with the expected date of birth or a birth certificate of an obstetrician or gynaecologist. With pregnancy, it is assumed that your study delay is 4 months. If the delay is more than 4 months, other medical grounds should be proven. A medical certificate would have to substantiate this.
Special family circumstances: supporting statements (if possible). That could be, for example, a medical certificate of your doctor/psychologist or a death certificate (or obituary notice) in case of death of a family member.
For all other circumstances: supporting statements or other documents that can clarify the situation (if possible).
The application form has not enough space to clarify my situation. What can I do?
You can email an extensive explanation to the registry of the Personal Circumstances Committee (CPO). Your email will be attached to your application.
I find it difficult to explain my situation in writing. What can I do?
You can explain your situation in a consult with a student counsellor.
