Does membership in the Student Union cost money?
NO! Each and every student can be a member of the Student Union. If you haven’t specified your wish to join the union on your university application forms, you can always drop by one of our service centers and sign up.
So what am I paying for?
In your tuition fee application form there is a section called “welfare payment”. It is paid along with the tuition, but unlike it – it is not obligatory!
Even so, we highly recommend you do pay it. It gives you a personal accident insurance (without it you are not insured). In addition, it provides you with benefits and services, such as legal and financial counseling, free readings, parking discount, free Advocacy in the university’s disciplinary court and the opportunity to receive a scholarship from the Student Union.
The body in charge of student IDs is the Welfare Department under the Dean of Students. If you have yet to receive your student ID, you should contact them as soon as possible. For your convenience, it is possible to send a picture for the student ID through E-mail: send a scanned JPG format picture, size 30k and up, in a 72dpi resolution and up. Save the picture under the name of your ID number (9 figures), and then send it to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Notice: If you lost your student ID, you can order a new one through the university’s website, in “MyTau” under “Personal Information”.
