Re-registration is the payment of the semester fee. Only the payment of the semester fee secures the right to continue studying. Students who wish to continue their studies in the coming semester must re-register within the re-registration period by paying the semester fee.
Payment must always be made at the beginning of January or July. The semester fee consists of the student union fee, the administrative fee and the fee for the student body. This fee must be paid for each semester in which you are enrolled at the university, i.e. also during a semester on leave, a semester abroad or an internship semester.
If you fall under the tuition fee obligation for international students or second tuition fees, you must pay this amount in the same period together with the semester fee. All procedures described in the rest of the text apply to you as well.
IMPORTANT: Students who do not re-register by paying the semester fee and any tuition fees that may be due will be exmatriculated.
The re-registration and payment will no longer be done in LSF, but from the coming winter semester 2023/24 by bank transfer.
HFT Stuttgart is successively introducing a new campus management system. After the introduction of the application portal, the "Student Management (STU) is now the second step in the changeover. Here, the complete student data of our university will be mapped, managed, displayed and archived. This results, among other things, in changes in the process from the current re-registration for the winter semester 2023/24.
To log in to our new campus portal (https://campus.hft-stuttgart.de), you will need your e-mail access code and e-mail password.
For questions about logging in, please contact the Info and Support Desk at the Information Center.
The semester fee will be paid by bank transfer from winter semester 2023/24. In our new campus portal (student management) under payments you will find your individual fee amount and the bank details for the transfer.
Please be sure to include our cash reference number and your matriculation number in the payment reference so that your payment can be allocated quickly and smoothly.
As an international student you are liable to pay fees and in addition to the semester fee you have to pay 1500 Euro tuition fees every semester. If you are now exempt from paying due to an exemption and you are still shown the international tuition fee, then we are missing a current, updated residence title or a fictitious certificate (or other certificates) confirming the extension of your exemption. Please contact the appropriate contact person and email your residence title/certificate.
No. The amount to be paid does not have to be from your account. Another person can also make the transfer for you. It is important that you state the cash reference number, your matriculation number, as well as your surname and first name when making the transfer.
As soon as you have transferred the required fees and we have received and booked them, you will also find your new enrollment certificate on the new campus portal under "certificates". Since we receive your payments via the central state treasurer's office (LOK), you must allow at least 3 -5 days for the re-registration and certificate of enrollment from the date of the transfer.
There are two possibilities why you have not been re-registered yet:
You cannot re-register because of impediments. In addition to the payment of the semester fee, other evidence must be provided so that you can re-register for the coming semester. If this does not happen during the re-registration period, you will be threatened with de-registration.
Re-registration suspensions could be:
Yes, you must re-register in any case to keep your student status. Re-registration is the only way to ensure your status as a student during the semester abroad, internship semester or semester on leave.
We assume that you will successfully complete your studies this semester. If you do not pass an exam, please contact the examination office immediately (rueckmeldung(at)hft-stuttgart.de), as you are currently blocked from re-registering for the next semester.
Please note the different deadlines and recipients of the application forms mentioned above.
Starting in the winter semester 2017/2018, tuition fees will be charged to international students in Baden-Württemberg for Bachelor and consecutive Master programs. This fee is 1,500 € per semester; the re-registration or semester fee is added to this.
At the University of Applied Sciences, this applies to all courses of study except the courses of study "International Project Management" and "Smart City Solutions". Separate tuition fees are charged for these continuing education courses. The tuition fee for foreigners is to be paid by students who start a new course of study from now on. For enrolment or re-registration in the next semester, the total amount must be paid. In the practical semester and the semester on leave of absence you can be exempted from paying the tuition fee for foreign students. Students who were enrolled at a preparatory college in Baden-Württemberg before the beginning of the winter semester 17/18 to prepare for the assessment test do not pay tuition fees for international students in the course of study in which they are enrolled immediately after the successful completion of the assessment test. Basic information from the Ministry can be found here
You are not required to pay tuition fees if one of the three statements applies to you:

You may also be exempt from fees if you have already been living and working in Germany for 5 years or longer. You can find the detailed reasons here

Both the International Project Management and Smart City Solutions master's degree programs are continuing education programs that require tuition fees.
The amount of tuition fees to be paid in each semester can be found in the Fee Schedule below. In addition to the tuition fees, the current semester fee must be paid each semester
No tuition fees are charged during a semester of leave. Only the semester fees are then to be paid. Other fees such as international tuition fees or second tuition fees do not apply.
Possible reductions of tuition fees (e.g. due to raising a child) are listed in the fee regulations of the study program.
Evidence must be provided that a child under the age of 14 is being cared for and raised. The child should live in the applicant student's household. Or it should be proven that a lot of time is invested in the care/raising of a child. The fee reduction for caring for and raising a child is granted regardless of whether the child is legitimate, non-marital, declared legitimate or adopted. Custody is not a determining factor for the fee reduction.
Proofs: Birth certificate and registration certificate of the child and, if applicable, declaration of care and upbringing of a child.
The determination of a significant disability is made according to § 2 para. 1 SGB IX. For a fee reduction, a degree of disability of at least 50 percent must be present or, in the case of chronically ill students, it must be proven on the part of the student that he/she requires more time to complete the course of studies, whether due to medical appointments or also due to the fact that the student requires a longer period of study due to his/her disability.
The application for fee reduction must be submitted directly to the university before the start of lectures.
Proof: Severely disabled student ID or medical certificate stating the difficulty in studying.
