Complete your enrolment

Here you will find all 3 steps to completing your enrolment: accepting your offer, making it unconditional, and paying your tuition fee.

Step 1: accept your offer

RSM would ideally like to hear your reply to our offer of admission within 2 weeks of receiving the results. You can accept the offer of admission first, and later on if you change your mind you can simply notify RSM by email that you want to decline or defer the offer of admission. There is no deposit you pay when accepting the offer, so there are no repercussions if you change your reply

Please follow these instructions carefully.

Log into RSM’s Online Application Form (OLAF). You can then open the offer overview section and accept your offer.

If you later decide not to come, it is important that you decline the offer via OLAF as soon as possible so your place can go to someone else.


Can I defer my offer?

It is possible to defer your offer of admission until the next academic year for all MSc and pre-master programmes with the exception of the International Management/CEMS.

Deferring your offer means that you postpone your conditional or unconditional offer until the following academic year. Once an offer has been deferred, you will not be registered as a student for the year you originally applied for. You will not have to pay the tuition fee until you start your studies.

If you have already accepted or declined your offer, but due to unforeseen circumstances want to defer your offer, please contact the RSM admissions office.

Please use the FAQ to find an answer to your questions. If you can't find your answer there, you can use the contact form. Please note that the waiting time during admission periods can be longer than two weeks!

Step 2: make your offer unconditional

The conditions of your offer are listed in the offer message as well as your admissions statement in the Online Application Form (OLAF). These conditions must be met by the 31st of August as the academic year officially starts on the 1st of September.


The most common condition is the proof of completion your bachelor programme. This means that by the 31st of August all your grades have been processed (including your final thesis) and you are ready to graduate. 

Even if you already uploaded your diploma and transcript to OLAF during the application, you still need to have your unofficial documents evalued. The RSM Admissions office needs to check the authenticity of your diploma and your final transcript from certified hardcopies or the originals. 

Generally, the diploma and final transcript (grade list) will suffice to make your offer unconditional.

  • Diploma: In order to verify that you have completed your secondary school programme your admission is based on, RSM needs to see your final diploma.
  • Transcript: In order to check that your grades and the subjects you have submitted during the application process are true, RSM also needs your final transcript (i.e. grade list). 
  • National entrance exam/state exam: For some diplomas a national entrance exam or state exam may be part of the official diploma. In that case you must also provide a certified hardcopy of the exam results/certificate (in the original language and a translation).
  • Translation: If the original documents are written in a language other than English, French, German or Dutch you must provide an official translation by a registered sworn translator in one of these languages. Make sure to always include your diploma and/or transcript(s) in the original language along with the translation! 
    If your school issues the diploma in the original language and in English, you need to send both diplomas.


You must provide either original or certified hardcopies (paper documents) of your secondary school diploma and final transcript (grade list).


I don't have my diploma yet, but I have finished my studies. Which documents should I send? 

If your official diploma is given after the 31st of August, you should request an official statement from your university which explicitly states that you have completed all the requirements of your study. Also include a certified hardcopy of your final transcript.

I want to have the documents sent to RSM by e-mail: Your university must send the documents directly to RSM ( The documents will not be accepted if they arrive from your e-mail address. Request your university to send both your diploma /graduation statement AND your final grade list.

If your university does not provide digital copies, you need to obtain a certified copy of your final diploma (or diploma statement) and transcript. Certified copies can be acquired at the institution where you obtained them or at an official notary. Certified means that the document contains the original stamp and signature of your institution (director, course coordinator, registrar) or the official notary. When making your offer unconditional, make sure you send us the original document. Photocopies of a certified copy will not be accepted.

Online verification systems (EU/EEA only): If your university uses an online verification system (for example Bocconi University, or HEAR verification with an online provider such as Gradintelligence in the UK), please notify the admissions office. RSM is not able to verify documents online if it's required that software is downloaded before the verification.

Below are a variety of ways for you to connect with fellow classmates and life on campus.

As part of your student journey, beyond your studies, there are many ways to actively engage with and become part of the RSM and EUR community. 

A lot of students choose to join study or student associations to connect with classmates, take part in social events, establish important connections with potential employers, and put their classroom knowledge into real-life situations.

Being a part of these various groups not only enriches your overall experience at RSM, both socially and professionally, but also adds valuable qualifications to your CV.

You don't have to wait until August to meet your new classmates. Check out the Goin app and the STAR study association below to start connecting today!

Instead of WhatsApp groups this year, RSM is working with the app Goin'.

Goin' is an app that helps connect you with other incoming students. You can join different groups based on similar interests, background or programme. Connect with others to create new friendships and share new ideas. Also in the app, you can read onboarding tips to prepare for your arrival and studies as well as stay up-to-date with important events.

The Goin' app is not live yet for the September 2024 intake.

RSM's study assciation STAR’s mission is to enrich RSM students' life.

This mission is facilitated by the great number of activities that are organized by numerous Bachelor committees and Master Study Clubs. The Active Members form a base which is underpinned with three pillars: Career start support, development and academic support, social Interaction.
