Reporting Back for the Term

-
Woman with binoculars; image: FreeDigitalPhotos.netTo continue with your studies each term at the HTW, you must report back in due time and pay your semester fee. Payment must be made to the HTW's bank account before the closing date for reporting back, otherwise you will be charged with a late fee of 19.94 euros.
Please refer to the periods and the semester fee to the website of HTW Berlin.

After your payment has been booked to our account, you will automatically be registered for the upcoming term. You will then receive your student ID and certificate of registration by mail in time for the start of the term (two to four weeks beforehand).

Important note:
If you have been temporarily suspended in the student administration system (due to e.g. an incomplete pre-study internship, change of health insurance company/fund, lack of health insurance coverage, pending examination consultation or lack of a residence permit), you will not be automatically re-registered for the upcoming term. In such cases, you will have received a letter from us with a request to submit any related certificates or missing documents so that you can be re-registered.

If you fail to report back, you will automatically be unmatriculated at the end of the preceding term, i.e. the term in which you were last registered.

Tardiness in Reporting Back

After the closing date for reporting back, yet within the default period, you may still report back but will be charged an additional late fee of 19.94 euros pursuant to the "Gesetz- und Verordnungsblatt für Berlin" (law and order gazette for Berlin), volume 53, no. 47, from 10 October 1997.
If the entire semester fee is not posted to the HTW's bank account by the end of the default period, you will be not be registered for the upcoming term and will be officially unmatriculated.

Students in Their Final Semester

Students that will complete their study programme in the up-coming term have an additional option (not applicable to students of Public Management): In case they already submitted their master thesis in this current semester, and only have to do their colloquium (final oral examination) in the up-coming term, they can choose not to re-register for the up-coming term and this way save the complete semester fee amount. In this case, they will not receive a new students ID card (which also means: no semester ticket) for the up-coming term and will be officially exmatriculated at the beginning of the up-coming term, but their right to do the colloquium will remain unaffected. If they do not want to make use of this option and instead still pay in the complete semester fee for the upcoming term, they will receive a new students ID card and semester ticket at the beginning of the up-coming term.

If you are officially exmatriculated you will lose your student status and are required to announce this fact to your health insurance company/fund, employer, family benefits office, labour office or any other offiical authorities.

Reimbursement of Semester Fees

If you leave university before the start of the term and/or have overpaid semester fees, you can file an informal application for the reimbursement of the semester fee. The administrative fee (currently 50.00 euros) cannot be reimbursed.
Please include your bank details in your formless application so that we can transfer the fee back to you.

Reporting Back From Exeat

If you are on leave from university for the purpose of military or civilian service, the semester fee is not applicable to you. You are simply required to informally report back before the closing date.

In other cases of exeat, you are required to report back via the usual procedure before the closing date.
