The computers at Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences are connected to a data network, which is part of the national FUNET network (Finnish University and Research Network). In addition to the user regulations of SeAMK, users are therefore obligated to abide by the user regulations of FUNET, at http://www.csc.fi/hallinto/funet/palvelut/yhteydet/kayttosaannot.
Upon acceptance of the regulations of the information systems, students receive a username and an e-mail address. Students need their user names when they log into any SeAMK computer, and they are valid for almost all the services. The username and password are personal, and everybody shall always use their own credentials to log in.
New students can start using their user IDs, passwords and email addresses as an online service even before starting their studies. This service functions with TUPAS identification (bank identifiers), and can be accessed when the student has confirmed they have accepted their study place. The service is available at https://tunnukset.seamk.fi.
By approving the regulations of the information systems, students can be identified through the Vetuma service and proceed to the identifier management service.
Students can use their user IDs to log into the WinhaWille service where they can check their personal information and change their address details, if necessary. They can also check their Personal Curriculum and grades and take care of compulsory registration as an attending student. WinhaWille laso allows students to register for courses and exams. The address for logging into WinhaWille is http://wille.epedu.fi.
Students should also heed to the issues associated with data security for the good of everyone. Everyone who uses IT system shall abide by the regulations of Seinäjoki University of Applied Sciences
