Refund of fees already paid
Under certain conditions, you can claim a refund of semester fees already paid in full or in part. An application for a refund of an excess payment must invariably be submitted in writing.
If you exmatriculate before the start of the semester or within one month from the beginning of the lecture period, you are entitled to a refund of the semester fee in full. The Student ID Card has to be presented to the Registrar´s Office within the deadline for a full refund. Please take care when sending in your ID Card. We have to receive it before the end of the deadline. You can use the self-serve functions when exmatriculating.
Your credit balance for the Student Services catering facilities of Studentenwerk Göttingen can be cashed on presentation of your chip card at the infobox in the central cafeteria of Studentenwerk Göttingen.
In that case, the degree programme for which you have enrolled here in Göttingen is deemed not taken up. If you subsequently enrol again at any university, you are not under obligation to furnish supporting evidence. This also applies to universities other than Göttingen University.
Please submit an informal application in writing to cancel your enrolment. Please submit your application for refund of the semester fee together with your student ID (chip card), if already issued, parallel to the cancellation of your enrolment, to Göttingen University.
The prerequisite for a refund to Master's degree students is final enrolment in your new degree programme.
A scholarship for doctoral studies must be 100% financed by (German) public funding. Please submit relevant documentary evidence (e.g. scholarship agreement) and your application for refund together with your informal application for exemption. If your scholarship is extended, you are required to submit a new informal application for exemption within the re-registration period.
