Significant improvements in contribution exemptions and refunds

In cooperation with the University as well as with the Studentenwerk, we were able to achieve significant improvements in the area of contribution exemptions and refunds.

On the one hand, we have pushed back the deadline for contribution exemptions by one month. Together with the later end of the re-registration period, students who are entitled to a partial or full exemption now have one and a half months more time to apply. . It is also important to note that we were able to redesign the administrative procedures with the other parties mentioned above so that from now on we no longer have to make a hidden advance refund, but can implement a real exemption from contributions (= exemption from the obligation to pay).

And finally, we have included other cases in the area of exemptions where the situation is clear and/or there is a legal obligation to avoid payments, for example with regard to semester tickets for people who demonstrably cannot use public transport due to a recognised severe disability, or for so-called double degrees and trinationals. In addition, students with a recognised severe disability and a public transport token covering at least 15 weeks of the semester in question can be exempted. In the latter case, even if the deadline for exemption is missed, the possibility of later reimbursement remains.

We are particularly pleased that we will also be able to treat early leaves of absence as exemptions from fees as of the re-registration period in January 2024. This will save everyone a lot of effort.

Please note that both exemption from contributions and reimbursement are bound to different deadlines! Read the articles linked to at the bottom of this page.
