Proof of Student Status

Your status as a student of our university entitles you to various rights and privileges. In the course of your studies, some authorities may demand proof that you are actually enrolled. You provide this proof in the form of your official student status documents.

We issue student status documents as a PDF document consisting of three parts:

  • Certificate of enrolment (including, where applicable, a reason for a leave of absence)
  • Master data sheet with your personal details
  • Certificate in accordance with Section 9 of the German Federal Training Assistance Act (BAföG)

You can also retrieve a Studienverlaufsbescheinigung, which is a document detailing periods of study from enrolment to the current semester.

You will receive your student status documents for a new semester once you have paid the semester fee. It may take a few days after payment for the documents to be displayed. Please note the deadlines for re-enrolling and paying the semester fee:

  • Re-enrolment period for the winter semester: 1 June–15 August
  • Re-enrolment period for the summer semester: 1 December–15 February
