Semester dues

On this page you will find information about the following topics:

Semester dues

There are no tuition fees at the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences and Arts, but there are semester dues that you have to pay for enrollment or re-registration.

The semester dues are made up of the following components:

  • Contribution to the student body:                                     18 Euro
  • Semester ticket:                                                                  225 Euro
  • Contribution to the Association for Student Affairs:      91 Euro

                                                                                               = 334 Euro

The Enrollment Office will check for receipt of payment of the semester dues at the time of enrollment.

You will receive more information about this when you apply. Under certain conditions you can be exempted from the semester dues. For other offices, please prove that you have paid the semester dues by presenting your bank statement. The Enrollment Office is not in a position to issue such certificates.

For exemption from the obligation to pay the semester dues and for reimbursement of semester dues, please use the following form:

Barriers for Re-registration

If your re-registration for the following semester has not taken place despite payment of the semester due, this can have various causes:

  • You have transferred an incorrect amount
  • You have indicated an incorrect reason for payment during the transfer, so that your payment could not be assigned (please show the original bank statement at the Enrollment Office)
  • The semester due was transferred late, i.e. after the re-registration deadline and without the late fee of € 10 due in this case
  • A digital registration certificate from a health insurance company is missing
  • You have not yet proven a basic or specialist internship at the Enrollment Office
  • You have been enrolled in a course of study under certain conditions and you have not yet submitted the fulfilment of the requirements to the Enrollment Office
  • You have successfully completed your studies in the current semester and can no longer be re-registered for the same degree programme
