When the student is a minor, a parent's social security and contact information information must be registered in the invoicing information fields.  Registration is not possible without a full social security number. Students who have unpaid course fees cannot register. You cannot register by e-mail, text messages or via Facebook.

No invitation will be sent to the accepted students. However, if a course is cancelled or there are changes to the schedule, students are informed as soon as possible by text messages.

Payments

MAEC will send an invoice to every registered student after the course(s) have started. Cash is not accepted. By registering the student commits himself/herself to paying the course fee. Eventual complaints must be brought to the MAEC's attention within 14 days of the date of the invoice. After the due date, unpaid course fees are taken care of by a collection agency.

However, none of these coupons can be used to pay for open university course fees. Coupons are issued by employers' to each individual as personal so they cannot be used to pay for other people's course fees.

Registration must be cancelled  five days before the course starts. The cancellation must be done at or to the Mäntsälä Adult Education Centre office. Course cancellation can also be done on-line providing that the registration has been done on-line (starting page, "Checking your registration and cancellation",  "Ilmoittautumisen tarkastaminen ja peruutus"). In case you cancellation is later than five days prior to course start, it must be done to or at the office.

An uncancelled course will be invoiced in full. An exception to this is, if a student cancel a course extending over a full academic year after only one meeting. In such a case a cancellation charge of 10 euros will be charged. The office must always be informed a cancellation, it is not enough to just let the teacher/instructor know.
