Semester contribution

The semester contribution is a compulsory, solidarity-based levy that is charged at all universities throughout Germany in varying amounts. Before each semester, the respective university collects the contribution on behalf of the payees for the Studierendenwerk and the Student Council. Payment of the semester contribution is a prerequisite for enrolment at the university and for re-registration each semester.

The semester contribution must be credited to the University account set up for this purpose no later than the last day of the re-registration period specified in the semester key points.

Late payments will be subject to a late fee (see right).
