I'm quitting my studies, and want to hand in my notebook.
What you need to do:
First of all, make sure your notebook is complete. You have to hand in
all the accessoires you got with the notebook (in working order). Your
notebook will not be accepted if it is incomplete. Check here what
accessoires have been handed out with which notebooks:
Make sure you have the following papers with you:
- Your passport or other official proof of identity (with photo) or
- Your student card
If any of your accessoires are missing or broken, you can pay for it at the counter. If the notebook itself is defective, please hand it in for repairs on time. The notebook
you hand in will only be accepted after any defects have been repaired.
Financial procedure Notebook
1. If you have a loan, the financial procedure is based on article 5.3
in the Participation Agreement. The TU/e will make sure the loan with
the Rabobank is canceled, so you do not have to contact the Rabobank
yourself. The amount you have to pay back will be added to the amount
you have to pay or deducted from the amount you will get back
according to article 5.3. You will be sent a payment slip if you need
to pay anything; if you get anything back, it will be deposited into
your bank account.
2. If you have paid the sum at once, the financial procedure is based on
article 5.2 of the participation Agreement. Based on this, the amount
you get back from the TU/e will be determined. This amount will be
deposited into your bank account.
