* For programs that require course registration via PULS, all registrations that are completed until the day of the first admission are treated equally, i.e., acceptance into the desired course is not related to the time of your registration. Students in their first semester of study are advised to register only after the orientation meeting. If you study in a program that does not manage registration via PULS, please contact the applicable institute / program. Further information is available on thePULS pages please see enrollment and registration deadlines. All dates and deadlines can also be found on the pages that provide information on the beginning of your studies.

** The operative date is the date when to fees are booked to the account of the University of Potsdam and not the date of payment.
