Semester registration

The deadlines for semester registration are September 1 (autumn) and February 1 (spring).

​​Step 1: Activate your student account (new students only)

The first thing you need to do as a new student is create a Feide account and password in the activation portal. After you have completed registration, your Feide account will give you access to most of our online services, such as StudentWeb and the online learning platform Canvas.

  • In order to create a Feide account, you must have accepted your offer.
  • It may take up to 24 hours from you accept your offer until you have access to activate your account. If you receive an error message, wait a few hours before trying again.

We recommend using a laptop rather than mobile or tablet, to ensure that you see all the checkboxes on your screen.        

  1. Go to the activation portal.
  2. Enter your surname and date of birth.
  3. Provide your e-mail address (the same as you used in your application for admission) so that we can send you an activation code.
  4. Enter the activation code that you receive via email.
  5. Enter a new password, at least 8 characters in length with both numbers and capital/lower case letters.
  6. Your Feide-account is now activated. Your username is your student number (provided in your welcome letter) and your password is the one you entered in step 5 above.
  7. You can now proceed to registration in StudentWeb, see below.

Step 2: Pay your semester registration fee

All students studying at Nord University, except ERASMUS Plus students and exchange students from other partner institutions, must pay the semester fee.
Semester fees cover general administrative costs and are not tuition fees. In accordance with current Norwegian education policy, Nord University does not charge tuition fees.
Log in to StudentWeb
Use the username and password you generated when you activated your student account and select Log on using Feide.

Please note: You will only have access to StudentWeb if you have accepted an offer of admission from Nord University.

Forgotten your password?
You can reset your password. If you experience further trouble, contact the IT Helpdesk.

Generate an invoice
Payment information for your semester fees, i.e. account number, new KID number (customer identification number) and the total amount to be paid can be found in StudentWeb. You can pay in the same way as you usually pay invoices through your bank. Do not fill in an invoice by hand - use internet banking. If necessary, you can order a paper invoice in StudentWeb.

The semester fee at Nord is NOK 815.

This amount covers:

- NOK 620 to the Student Welfare Organisation
- NOK 175 to Kopinor (the university's agent for licensing and use of copyrighted materials for educational purposes).
- NOK 20 to the Norwegian Students' and Academics' Assistance Fund (SAIH) (this amount is a voluntary contribution).

Step 3: Register in StudentWeb and confirm your enrolment

Please note: You must have paid your semester fee prior to registering. The university system may take 2 days to process your payment, after which time you will be able to register.

Log in to StudentWeb
Use your username and password you generated when you activated your student account and select Log on using Feide.

Forgotten your password?
You can reset your password. If you experience further trouble, contact the IT Helpdesk or Student Services.

Register in StudentWeb

1. Register your contact information. Ensure that you enter the country code for your mobile number.

2. Confirm that you have read and understood the rules and regulations that apply to students at Nord University.  The Regulations relating to studies and examinations at Nord University contain definitions of key terms used at the university, such as "educational plan", "examination" etc.

3. Check your course enrolment and approve your educational plan. It is possible to make minor changes to course enrolment in StudentWeb. For major changes in your educational plan, please contact the relevant student advisor at your faculty.

4. Ensure that you are registered for classes and examinations.

Step 4: Log in to student email, Canvas and TimeEdit

The username and password that you created when activating your student account apply to all online services at the university.

Your allocated student email address in Office365 is your primary address for formal communication with the university. The university does not use private email addresses to communicate with registered students.

Canvas is the university's online learning platform. In Canvas you can communicate with lectures and peers, download lecture notes and see important notices.

TimeEdit contains your class timetables. You can search by course code and create your own personalised timetable. TimeEdit also gives you access to room booking.
