When Does De-registration occur?
There are several ways to end your studies at the University of Bremen.
Owing either to passed or definitively failed exams
We receive notification from your examination office about passed or definitively failed exams. You will then be de-registered by the Student Office by the end of the semester (31.03./30.09.) in which the Student Office receives the notification from the examination office. A corresponding certificate or notice of being de-registered as well as a document for presentation to the statutory pension insurance can be accessed via the moin-portal.
If you urgently need the de-registration certificate, you should apply for de-registration yourself.
At your own request
You apply for de-registration, indicating when you wish to be struck off the student register (retroactively not possible), and receive your de-registration document and a certificate for the purposes of the statutory pension insurance from the Student Office. You can retrieve these certificates via the moin portal.
Please note that an application for de-registration may have effects on your health insurance or the payments of child benefits, BAföG etc.
Forced de-registration due to failure to re-enroll
You do not re-enroll on time (deadlines: February 15./ August 15). You receive a reminder and ignore it. Your de-registration follows and you will receive a certificate of de-registration and a certificate for the pension insurance, which will be made available to you via the moin-portal.
How long can students of the University of Bremen use the university internet access, university email, SuUB and PABO after exmatriculation?
After your exmatriculation you can continue to use your university account for another 18 months with limited permissions (e.g. no VPN). After 18 months, your data will be deleted. In advance, you will receive three e-mails with information about the blocking and deletion of your account. To continue using your university account, you can become a member of the Alumni Association.
If you are still enrolled as a student, you can have your ID card extended by one year at the SuUB. Then, despite exmatriculation, you can continue to use the services of the library on site for another year. However, as soon as you are exmatriculated, you can no longer use the services associated with the so-called VPN. Among other things, it is then no longer possible to access certain literature databases from home.
Even if you are already exmatriculated at the University of Bremen, exam results from the previous semester will be entered in PABO. Up to 18 months after your exmatriculation, you can access examination results and transcripts of records via PABO.
I will soon complete my bachelor's degree at the University of Bremen and would like to start a master's program at the University of Bremen. How long should I stay enrolled in the bachelor's?
In principle, you will remain enrolled in the Bachelor until the end of the semester in which your last examination performance was completed and the assessment of the examination performance was entered in PABO.
Especially if you are not sure that all CPs necessary for the completion of the Bachelor can be entered in PABO at the end of the semester, you should re-register for the Bachelor program by 15.08 / 15.02.
This way, you will not lose your student status if you do not submit your bachelor's degree until the beginning of the first master's semester and at the very latest by two weeks after the start of the course. If you cannot provide proof of your Bachelor's degree two weeks after the start of the event, you will then remain enrolled in the Bachelor's program at the University of Bremen.
I will soon complete my bachelor's degree at the University of Bremen and would like to start a master's program at another university. How long should I stay enrolled in the bachelor's?
The conditions relevant for your admission to the master's program at another university are determined by the receiving universities. Therefore, inquire about them at the receiving university.
Normally, you will be exmatriculated by the end of the semester in which you passed the last examination of your studies. The respective examination office enters the result in PABO and notifies the Secretariat for Students (SfS) of your graduation. After this notification, the SfS will exmatriculate you at the end of the semester. If you start at another university, e.g. for the winter semester, you will usually remain enrolled at the University of Bremen until September 30 and will then be enrolled at the new university as of October 1. According to the Bremen Higher Education Act, simultaneous enrollment at two universities is not possible.
If, for example, the receiving university requires an exmatriculation certificate, it makes sense to have the exmatriculation certificate to hand in good time and to apply for it accordingly early. Note that you can also apply for exmatriculation on a future date. For enrollment in the Master's program at other universities, complete performance records are often expected. Even if you have already exmatriculated at Bremen University, exam results from the previous semester will be entered into PABO. Up to 18 months after your exmatriculation you can retrieve examination results and transcripts of records via PABO.
