Submission of doctor’s notes (Withdrawal from exams after the de-registration period for “significant reasons” in terms of § 18 APO):

For Written Exams (Klausuren) or your Final Thesis, doctor’s notes can be submitted via eCampus (find an instruction: HERE). You can find the required form at the tab eCampus – Weitere Dienste – Formulare – Formulare der Prüfungsämter
For all other examination types (research paper, Portfolio etc.), this service unfortunately cannot be provided, yet. Please send a scan/copy of the doctor’s note attached to an E-Mail to the member of staff responsible for your study programme. The original doctor’s note has to be submitted only on special request.

Following your submission of the doctor’s note, you and your lecturer will be informed about your FlexNow-Status, changed examination periods and extended deadlines by E-Mail.


Extension of deadlines

Extensions of deadlines can only be granted through the submission of doctor’s notes, which need to contain a certain period in which you are unable to be examined.
