To ensure that your membership remains valid, you will have to get a new semester sticker by renewing your membership every academic year or every semester.

Student benefits can only be obtained with a student card which has a valid semester or academic year sticker attached.

You can pay the membership fee either in person at the JAMKO office, or at one of the member service points. The membership can be paid in cash or by card (Debit, Credit, Visa, Visa Electron and Mastercard). This alternative is recommended if you do not own a Finnish bank account.

The fee can also be payed for via an online bank, but it is crucial to present a receipt of the payment (either printed or electronic) when you come to pick the card or the semester sticker up.

The sticker on the student card indicates its validity. The sticker is an indicator that the student has paid the student union membership fee and the sticker is glued to the card at JAMKO member service after payment of the membership fee.
