Re-enroll now: please arrange your re-enrolment on time through Studielink

If you are studying at Design Academy Eindhoven, you need to re-enroll each year. To do so, you have to arrange your re-enrolment through Studielink. And also include the authorisation for the payment of tuition fees. Please note: if you are not enrolled before August 31st you cannot participate in courses and make use of DAE facilities!

What do you need to do?

  1. Open email from student administration
    At the beginning of June, you will receive an email from the student administration. This email will be send to your e-mail address registered in Studielink. In this email we will inform you about the opening of the re-enrolment procedure.
  2. Go to Studielink to enter your re-enrolment request.
    When you are a resident of the Netherlands, you can only submit an enrolment request if you use DigiD. Make sure you apply for your DigiD in time. Only if you are not eligible for a DigiD because you are not an official resident of the Netherlands, you will be able to continue to use your Studielink username (email address) and password without DigiD.
  3. Payment of tuition fees 
    Once you enter your enrolment request in Studielink, DAE will calculate your (provisional) tuition fee. Then there will be a new item in your to do list, to enter your payment details and accept the payment. DAE will use the digital permission in Studielink.
  4. Information on the status of your re-enrolment
    As soon as there are any changes, you will receive notification through Studielink and/or the student administration. Usually this is done in the form of an email. Keep in touch with your personal page on Studielink and your email. You will also be informed if there are documents or other things missing.

What to do if you want to…


You are going to continue with the program in which you are now registered in your current academic year. Log in on Studielink. You can submit your request for re-enrolment in Studielink. You will find the option “re-enrolment” in your To Do list. Click here and confirm your re-enrolment. When you have entered your re-enrolment request DAE will calculate your (provisional) tuition fee. Then you can enter your payment details in Studielink (you will find a new item in your To Do list -“payment details”). You can follow the wizard and confirm your payment details.

Please note!
If you are not enrolled before August 31st you cannot participate in courses and make use of DAE facilities!


You are going to graduate during the academic year.  Arrange your re-enrolment for the academic year 2020-2021 and choose for payment in instalments (direct debit). When you graduate, you can unsubscribe in Studielink. The financial department of DAE will calculate how much tuition fee you still have to pay or have to receive back. You will receive an e-mail with the exact details.

For example, if you graduate on January 6th, you unsubscribe from Studielink before January 31st, with the reason: graduated. You do not have to pay for the remaining months of the academic year. So you will pay tuition fee for 5 month s. If you unsubscribe after January 31st, you will be unsubscribed from DAE one month later. This means that you have to pay 1 more month of tuition fee!

When you graduate in June, you will automatically be enrolled until August 31st. You do not receive any refund of tuition fee.

Please note!
When you unsubscribe through Studielink you’re not stopping any student grants and the student travel product on the OV-chipkaart. You have to arrange this at Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs (DUO).


If you do not plan to re-enrol, but want to remain enrolled until the end of the academic year (August 31st), go to Studielink, select your current enrolment  and choose the “No, I do not want to re-enroll’ option.

If you do not want to be re-enrolled, please let our student council know about your choice not to re-enroll.


If during the academic year, you decide to terminate your enrolment at DAE, you first have to make an appointment with the student councilor.
After speaking with the student councilor, you can unsubscribe from DAE in Studielink.  You will be un-enrolled starting in the month following the month in which your request to unsubscribe has been submitted via Studielink. You have a payment obligation for the months in which you were officially enrolled

Depending on the date you want to unsubscribe, you may be entitled to a refund of tuition fee. If you paid the tuition fee in advance, you are entitled to a partial refund. If you paid in installments by digital direct debit authorization we will terminate the direct debit payment as soon as your request to unsubscribe has been fully processed. This may take some time.

The financial department of DAE will calculate how much tuition fee you still have to pay or have to receive back. You will receive an e-mail with the exact details.

Exception in summer months
When you unsubscribe from DAE in July or August, you are not entitled to get a refund of the tuition fee.

Please be aware of the fact that when you are unsubscribed, you will no longer be entitled to use your DAE-account, your DAE-badge and DAE-student card. Your account will be blocked.
