If it is your first time enrolment, you will receive a payment request together with your initial letter of admission. Please proceed as is described there.

For every semester after that you will NOT receive a separate invitation to re-register for the following semester, instead it is your very own obligation to find out about the payment details at the end of your current semester, and to make sure that you transfer the applicable semester fee amount into the HTW bank account as specified below within the deadline for re-enrolment as set forth below and in the academic calendar. Also the dates and deadlines to re-enrol for the upcoming semester are always printed on the backside of your current student ID card.

*Exeat semestershave to be officially granted by the Office of Admissions and Enrolment. If you did not official apply for an exeat semester and have not officially been granted the exeat - the reduced semester fees are NOT applicable for you, which means you have to pay in the full semester fee amount. You can find more information on how to officially apply for an exeat on our homepage: Exeat Semester

** The reduced semester fee amount is NOT applicable for obligatory internships or obligatory abroad semesters which are an obligatory part of your study programme. This means it does explicitly NOT apply for Finland semesters in the ConREM study programme. ConREM students who are leaving for Finland have to pay in the full semester fee amount and can ask for a refund of the amount for the semester ticket directly at the semester ticket office. (Please see below "Refunds of parts of the semester fee".)

Exemptions and/or Refunds of fees

Exemptions from semester fee
  • There is no exemption for disabled students. They also have to pay the total regular semester fee.
  • If you work as an elected member of statutory bodies/administrative organs of the university, the student body, or student services and have voting power, up to two university semesters will be deducted from your total number of university semesters. Proof of such membership must be provided.
  • In case you want to be partially or completely exempted from the semester fees for one or more semesters because you have been granted an exeat (as specified in the above table), make sure that you file an application for this exemption together with your application for the exeat plus the respective proof certificates (e.g. notification of enlistment, record of prenatal/natal care etc.).

Refunds of parts of the semester fee
  • If you are not on an official exeat semester, you have to pay in the complete semester fee to officially re-register. In case you do not need your ticket for the public transportation system in Berlin, because you are on an obligatory internship abroad or on an obligatory abroad semester (e.g. Finland semester in the study programme ConREM) that are obligatory parts of your study programme, you may consider applying for a refund of the semester ticket amount. You can only receive this refund if you first paid in the full amount and are officially re-registered for the upcoming term. After having done that you can file an application for the refund of your semester ticket fee directly at the semester ticket office. The refund will be carried out in return for your semester ticket.

Students in their final semester
  • Students who will complete their study programme in the upcoming term have an additional option (not applicable to students of Public Management): if they submit their bachelor/master thesis in this current semester, and only have to do their colloquium (final oral examination) in the next semester, they can choose not to re-enrol for the next semester 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 next semester and will be officially exmatriculated at the end of this current semester. However, their right to do the colloquium will remain unaffected by this exmatriculation. After this exmatriculation they will lose their official student status and are required to announce this fact without delay to their health insurance company/fund, employer, family benefits office, labour office or any other offiical authorities.
  • If they do not want to make use of this option and instead choose to nevertheless pay in the complete semester fee for the next semester, they will be re-enrolled for the next semester, keep their official student status and receive a new students ID card and semester ticket for the next semester. However, they will also be exmatriculated by law once they successfully completed their degree. After this exmatriculation they cannot ask for a full refund of the semester fee that they paid in by their own choice. They can only ask for a partial refund as described in the following: (1) If they complete their degree within the first two weeks of the next semester, they can ask for a refund of the semester fee minus 50 Euro administrative fee at the Student Service Center (Treskowallee, main building, room 040), if they return their semester ticket and student ID cards there. - OR - (2) If they complete your degree after the first two weeks of the next semester, they can only ask for a proportionate refund of the amount for the public transport ticket directly at the semester ticket office.
