In general terms if you aren't an EU citizen then you need to marry. Unless you can prove 2 years cohabitation. But you say that you have no proof of this except for what is in your head.
A student visa isn't supposed to be a stepping stone to actually being able to live in Finland. You are merely studying and that is what you said you would do when you submitted your application for that visa.
If you have not been living together (on paper) then you have no chance, you may even have less than that because you have been a student, not staying in Finland with them actually KNOWING that you are cohabitation. Because you are registered as a student. If you want to do these things you need to go by the book. Which it sounds like you have not been doing at all.
Either way it might not work out well because you can't really use a student or WH visa or any visa in general as a stepping stone to getting a permit. Which is why they may or may not count it towards you getting an RP.
Also, if your visa is valid for the entire time of your masters study and you are obviously half way through it. You can't just fall in love when you start to run out of money, then apply for an RP and go from being a student who pays, to being a student who is paid. So if that is your idea, get that out of your head now. You should have gotten an RP in the first place. This is the feeling I get when you say that it is URGENT that you transfer from a student visa to an RP, it just sounds like you want to qualify for government money.
EDIT: After reading this thread: http://finlandforum.org/viewtopic.php?f ... 79#p393679
I am sort of unsure as to what visa you are on now... did you come here as a student? If so why were you trying to open a business? Lastly you are from Colombia which isn't exactly on the 'safe' list when it comes to granting permits. If you can't prove your cohabitation and your relationship looks like it is purely for financial gain then you're just wasting your time.
... http://www.sixdegrees.fi/6d/index.php/f ... o-citizens sold all his properties in the U.S worth 80.000euros just to later end up pursuing a student visa in Finland?. Not only third world citizens should be attacked for wanting to live in Finland. You also have some dirt in your pocket backyard to tidy before you can jump on innocent people living their lives while you chasing shadows on a faceless forum.Integration is a myth Karl is a highly-qualified professional who craves to work and contribute to Finnish society. As a non-EU citizen he’s found that harder to achieve than it sounds.

I suggest you both read the thread again.
If the OP had proof of cohabitation this would be an entirely different thread.
Do you want me to tell the OP that everything will be fine when he/she doesn't have the prerequisites to get what he/she wants? They are welcome to try.
But in the end without the documents. You aren't getting anywhere.
If either of you can offer better advice then you're invited to try, rather than bitch and moan about behaviour. Nothing either of you are posting about is constructive but as I've said before, it's hard to convince an idiot that they're an idiot.
