How do I get a certificate of good conduct?

Contact your local police station and ask for a Criminal Record Certificate. You will have to print and bring your offer of admission from your web application and a valid ID card.

What does the police look for?

The police will check your entries in the criminal records. This implies that they check whether or not you have remarks in the criminal records that are relevant for your study programme. Only relevant remarks will be included on the certificate. The certificate is mentioned in the Norwegian Criminal Records Act § 39 (1) and refers to remarkes relating to violations of the Criminal Code:

- Charges, prosecution, accepted writs or convictions relating to violations of the Criminal Code §§162, 192, 193, 194, 195, 196, 197, 199, § 200 subsection two, § 201 subsection one, letter c, §§ 201a, 203, 204a, 219, 224, § 229 second and third sentencing alternative,
§§ 231, 233 and 268 cf. 267.

- Violations of the Criminal Code §§ 192, 193, 194, 195, 196, 197, 199, § 200 subsection two, § 201 subsection one, letter c, §§ 201a, 204a and 233 shall be commented in accordance with § 41 no. 1, i.e. that a remark relating to violations of these stipulations will not be deleted.

- Violations of the Criminal Code §§ 162, 203, 219, 224, § 229 second and third sentencing alternative, §§ 231 and 268 cf. 267 shall be commented in accordance with § 40, i.e. a regular criminal record certificate.

When is the deadline for submitting the certificate of good conduct?

If there are no remarks on your certificate, you must submit the certificate as soon as possible after the start of your studies and before your practical training/clinical practice commences. Please note that the processing time to get a certificate may take up to 6-7 weeks. Certain study programmes have practical/clinical training early in the first semester. Therefore, order the certificate as soon as possible.

If there are remarks on your certificate, you must contact the administration at your studies the moment you get admission.

The certificate of good conduct may not be older than three months.

NOTE: Applicants who have been granted admission and have relevant remarks on their certificate must submit the certificate within the deadline to accept the offer of admission. The Appeals’ Committee at the relevant educational institution will decide any decisions relating to suspension.

What happens if I do not submit the certificate of good conduct within the deadline?

You will not be able to begin your practical/clinical training before the certificate is submitted. If you have not submitted the certificate within the deadline, your progression of study may be delayed. If you do not submit the certificate, you will be suspended from practical /clinical training and you will not be able to complete your studies.

For how long is the certificate of good conduct valid?

The certificate is valid as long as you are a student at the relevant study programme. If changes occur, you will have to submit a new certificate.

Where do I submit the certificate of good conduct?

Pilestredet Campus: Please submit the certificate to the Information Centre at your faculty.
