Student card

From 31.12.2018 we only offer a digital student card. You can apply for login to the card at www.slice.fi/upload after you have paid the membership fee. The cards entitle students to student discounts that have been negotiated for them. The benefits depend on what kind of card you have (blue or green). For example, reduced rates for travel with VR or FPA’s meal support apply only to the blue student card.

Mobile student card

The Slice app is loaded into a mobile phone and so the student card always stays handily with you.

You can use Slice easily. When you have renewed your membership in the web shop, you can order your password to Slice with e-form: www.slice.fi/upload
After filling the form you’ll get your password via e-mail. Use it when you are registering in the app. Remember to accept the conditions asked by the application and to give the licences which are needed for the operation of the student card.

Please note that if you have a physical Student card from before you can still pick up your sticker from ASK’s office like before.

Card types and validity

The blue card is for students studying for a UAS Bachelor’s degree or for a UAS Master’s degree. The student must fulfil all eligibility criteria to be entitled to the card. The green card is for all other students who are members of the student union at the university of applied sciences. The sticker on the student card indicates its validity. The sticker is an indicator that the student has paid the student union membership fee. The sticker is not a product sold separately. In addition to paying the membership fee, the student must also meet all relevant criteria.

Eligibility criteria for the student cards:

Criteria for the blue card
You are eligible for a blue student card, if you meet all of the following criteria:
1) You are enrolled at a UAS and studying for a UAS first or second cycle degree.
2) You are enrolled as present for the academic year/term.
3) You become a member of your UAS student union.

Criteria for the green card
You are eligible for a green student card, if you meet all of the following criteria:
1) You study at a UAS, but do not fulfil the criteria for a blue student card.
2) You are enrolled as present for the academic year/term.
3) You become a member of your UAS student union.

Issuing student cards and continued validity

The Student Union may grant/deliver student cards and stickers only to persons who are eligible for it, that is, to individuals who are members of the Student Union in question. Furthermore, the member must meet all eligibility criteria in order to have the right to a student card. The student may have a year or term sticker for those terms for which they have paid the student union membership fee and meet all criteria. The student is accountable for providing correct information. Misuse of the card is a punishable offence.

Validity of the stickers for the student card

The term stickers are valid for a defined period. The sticker for the autumn term is valid until the end of the following January (e.g. the autumn sticker for 2017 is valid until the end of January 2018), a year sticker is valid until the end of September the latter year (e.g. the sticker for 2017-18 is valid until the end of September 2018). The sticker for the spring term is valid until the end of September (e.g. the spring sticker 2018 is valid until the end of September 2018).
