  • You are recipient of a scholarship from a German foundation.
  • The submitted documents have already been evaluated by the University of Göttingen.

  • You have refugee status according to the KMK ruling of 03.12.2015.
  • You have a degree from a German university.

If you do not have to pay the evaluation fee for one of these reasons, please upload a proof document onto the online application portal and send an email to: bewertungsgebuehr@uni-goettingen.de.
