Paid the semester fee at another institution in Norway? #

It is not necessary to pay the semester fee to several institutions in order to study at NTNU. The main rule is you pay to the institution you use services from. Please note that if you do not pay to SiT, some of the services with limited access will not be available. These are services such as reimbursement, kindergarten and student housing.

If you have paid the semester fee at another institution we must register this at NTNU.

Are you a PhD candidate? #

As a PhD candidate you normally do not have the right or obligation to pay a semester fee. However, PhD candidates who take courses not included in the PhD program must pay the semester fee. If you want to take courses not included in your PhD study, you have to apply for this using Søknadsweb. Choose "Single courses" -> "PhD courses for external candidates". When your application is granted you should be able to generate the invoice in Studentweb. If you encounter problems with this, please send an email to

You can also claim a refund if you have withdrawn from the studies early in the semester.
