Information on re-registration (fees, etc.) will be sent by e-mail to your University of Potsdam e-mail address.

Please note:

  • Students in discontinued programs who no longer have the right to take examinations are not entitled to re-register. Students who are studying under study and examination regulations that were issued on the basis of the BAMA-O as of 2009 or the BAMALA-O since 2013and for whom the examination deadline has expired due to taking twice as long as the standard time for completing a degree, also do not have a right to re-register. In such cases, re-registration is only possible if the deadline for completing examinations has been extended by the Examining Board/s AND the proof of extension of the deadline is submitted to the Student Administration Center/ Office of Student Affairs. Please contact your Examining Board/s.
  • Your enrollment as a doctoral candidate ends with the completion of your doctoral degree or the end of advising at the University of Potsdam, but definitely after 12 semesters in your subject of study. For further information see here (under Point 3).
  • Please take special notice of the fact that payment is generally not possible after the end of the grace period (August 31 for the winter semester or March 15 for the summer semester). If the payment is not made within the grace period at the latest, de-registration (exmatriculation) for official reasons must be carried out (Section 15, subsection 5 no. 3 of the Brandenburg Higher Education Act). Only if there are special reasons and proof is provided that the failure to meet the deadline was not the student's own fault, can the matter be re-examined within the framework of an appeal procedure. The assessment of the reasons provided is carried out in accordance with strict criteria. Only circumstances that are not attributable to you, i.e. that were beyond your control, e.g. illness (upon presentation of a medical certificate) or negligence on the part of the banking company, may be taken into account. Mere inability to pay is not a valid reason.
