Students may be granted leave of absence for good cause upon application. As a rule, leave of absence can be granted for up to two semesters in total. The semester of leave of absence must be applied for before the start of lectures of the respective semester. The reason for the leave of absence must be proven by suitable evidence. Retroactive leave of absence for a completed semester is excluded.
You will receive written notification of the approval or rejection of your application.
Important reasons for leave of absence are, for example:
Financial or economic circumstances are not important reasons.
During a semester of leave of absence the full semester fee is due!
You can find the application for leave of absence in our Moodle course "Study Organisation".
The membership of students in the university expires with the de-registration. The de-registration can be done on your own application or ex officio. "Ex officio" means, for example, if the degree certificate has been handed out, the right to take the examination has been lost, the semester fee has not been paid on time or the health insurance contributions have not been paid within a certain period of time.
As a rule, de-registration becomes effective at the end of the semester in which it is pronounced. Retroactive de-registration is not possible. If there are special reasons, it can be pronounced with immediate effect.
A notice of de-registration is issued or a certificate is issued. For students who are subject to compulsory health insurance, the university must report the de-registration to the responsible health insurance company.
The application for a leave of absence can be found in our Moodle course "Study Organization".
