Teaching affairs and registry

Student registration oversees information pertaining to students, for example, their course history and course registrations and withdrawals. Students who wish to receive a transcript of their course history should send an e-mail to student registration, nemendabokhald@ru.is.

Enrollment and graduation of students is also supervised by Teaching affairs in addition to all matters regarding examinations. The directorate of examinations is composed of the Directors of examinations and the Director of teaching affairs. Teaching affairs supervises the preparation of timetables, enrollment and graduation, room designations and teaching assessments.

Graduation and Diploma Supplement

Formal graduation ceremonies are held in January and June of each year. At their graduation, students receive a graduate certificate, copies of their course history in Icelandic and English with ranking and a Diploma Supplement.

The Diploma Supplement is a description of the studies students have completed and it also contains a short description of the Icelandic higher education system and its structure. Students generally submit the Diploma Supplement when applying for admission to universities abroad.

The period during which students can register for graduation in January is from October to November and the period during which students register for a June graduation is from January to March. Registration is completed online on the school's intranet. It is important for students to check whether they meet all the requirements for graduating before they register.
