Frequently asked questions

How can I use the Slice.fi application?

If you are not yet a member of Student Union Kaakko and do not have a student card, please order the card HERE. Once your card order is accepted, you will receive the login codes for Slice app in your email. If you do not receive your login codes, you can get them through a reset. Please see the instructions for the reset in another question on this page.

If you are already a member and have a student card, please update your membership information HERE. Check that there is a facial image and a valid email address and that your membership is valid. Then you can reset your account to get the login codes. Please see instructions for the reset in another question on this page.

How can I reset my account to sign in to Slice.fi-app?

You can reset your account from » this link.

Enter your email address associated with your Slice ID in the box and click “reset”. In a moment, you will receive a link to reset your account and a new password will be emailed to you. The link is valid for at least 24 hours.

If the reset link or new account does not arrive within an hour, be sure to check your spam folder and contact info(at)slice.fi if necessary. Please note that clicking on the link will end the pre-login process, as the same ID can only be valid on one device at a time.

If you are unable to sign in again with the new login codes, please uninstall and reload the application and then try again.

How long does it take for the card to be ready?

As for the plastic card, it will take 2 to 4 weeks for the card to be ready for the pick-up.

The student card company will first mail all the student cards to Kouvola campus, where the cards will be sorted and posted to Kotka, Mikkeli and Savonlinna offices, depending on where the student is studying.

The arrival notification will be sent to the student’s personal SCHOOL e-mail address (firstname.lastname@edu.xamk.fi)

I ordered a student card but I did not get any confirmation in my email. Has my order come through?

Unfortunately the current system does not send any confirmation messages. The only message you will get is if the picture needs to be changed or when the card is ready to be picked up from the office.

If you have any questions about your order, just send us email to toimisto(at)opiskelijakuntakaakko.fi

Where can I get my student overalls?
