Re-Registration and Semester Fee

Re-registration

You are responsible for re-registration yourself – you will not receive a separate request to do so.

Students intending to continue their studies in the coming semester renew their enrollment by transferring the semester fee before the deadline (by February 15th or August 15th).

Please note that we must have your current address and any changes in health insurance must be transmitted digitally by the health insurance company to the University of Bremen. Students who do not properly re-register by paying the semester fee or do not maintain proof of health insurance will be withdrawn from studies.

For a leave-of-absence semester with / without a semester ticket, an application must be submitted to the Student Office by the end of the re-registration deadline (February 15th / August 15th of each year).
Applications for semester ticket exemptions must be submitted by two weeks after the start of lectures.

If there are no objections, the registration or enrollment will be carried out by the Student Office upon receipt of the full semester fee. You will then receive your study documents including the semester ticket by mail.
The semester documents include:

  • Your master data sheet ("Stammdatenblatt") for safekeeping and to register for exams 
  • Your student ID
  • University enrollment certificate
  • Your semester ticket
  • Your Bafög certificate
  • An application form for leave of absence / semester abroad for the coming semester

Reimbursement

If you withdraw from classes during the semester or have paid too much, you have the option of receiving a refund.
You can request a refund with the Request for a Refund form.

The following fees can be reimbursed:

Student Services Fee (€85.00):
In general, the fee does not apply in the case of leave of absence for the special reasons of parental leave and illness.
In case of withdrawal in the first half of the semester (until December 31 or June 30), the student services fee will be fully refunded.


AStA Students' Union Fee (€17.60):
This fee is generally non-refundable. The only exception is the withdrawal of enrolment (return of place of study) or re-registration, provided that the semester (01.04./01.10.) has not yet begun.
The refund can only be made against return of the semester documents.


Kultursemesterticket (€1.85):
This fee is generally non-refundable. The only exception is the withdrawal of enrolment (return of place of study) or re-registration, provided that the semester (01.04./01.10.) has not yet begun.
The refund can only be made against return of the semester documents.


Semester Ticket (€190.22):
You have the option of waiving your semester ticket during a leave of absence.
In the event of withdrawal or cancellation of enrollment or re-registration, the semester ticket can only be refunded at the student office if you have not yet used it and lectures have not yet begun.
If you have already used the ticket or if the lecture period has already begun, you can have your semester ticket refunded by the General Student Committee (pro rata for the remaining months to the end of the semester).


Administration Fee (€50.00):
The administration fee does not apply for a second leave of absence in a row.
In the event of withdrawal, the fee is only refundable if no semester documents have yet been printed.

If enrollment or re-registration is withdrawn before the semester documents have been printed, the entire semester fee can be refunded.
If you decline admission (Studienplatzrückgabe), a refund can only be made if we have received all semester documents (incl. semester ticket).
