To be able to continue your studies at the University of Würzburg, you must re-enrol for each new semester within the designated re-enrolment period.
In accordance with the provisions of Bayerisches Hochschulgesetz (Bavarian Higher Education Act, BayHSchG), we will be forced to disenrol you with effect from the end of the current semester if you fail to re-enrol within the re-enrolment period. This means that you will likely lose your place at university if you do not re-enrol in time!
Deadlines and other important information:
To continue your studies in a summer semester, you must re-enrol in January; to continue your studies in a winter semester, you must re-enrol in June/July. The exact re-enrolment deadlines will be communicated in due time via the University's notice boards; in addition they will be published here under the respective semester.
Please also read our information sheet. This contains important information about re-enrolment.
We will re-enrol you once you have paid your semester fees. There are two payment options available. You can either:
- bank transfer the due amount to the bank account of the University
The advantage of re-enrolling via direct debit (WueStudy) is that you will be re-enrolled immediately. You will also be able to print out your new enrolment certificate and other documents for the new semester immediately.
If you choose to re-enrol via bank transfer, you will not be re-enrolled - and will not be able to print out your documents - until the full amount due has been credited to the account of the University. This will take about two days.
In accordance with the provisions of Bayerisches Hochschulgesetz, we will be forced to disenrol you if your semester fees are not credited to the account of the University before the re-enrolment deadline has passed! This means that the full amount due must be credited to our account on the last day of the re-enrolment period at the latest!
You can check WueStudy to find out if you have already been re-enrolled to continue your studies in the next semester. To do so, click the ‘Student services’ tile on the ‘My portal’ page or go to ‘My studies’ and select ‘Student services’. Once you have done so, go to the ‘Student status’ tab. If the words ‘Re-enrolled for [e. g. summer semester 2020]’ appear in the line directly underneath the tabs bar, you have been successfully re‑enrolled. If those words do not appear yet, this may be due to the fact that we have not received or processed your payment yet. Please wait a few days and check again. If the words still do not appear, please contact Student Affairs. We will then try and resolve the matter.
Important information for students who are enrolled at the University of Würzburg and the University of Music Würzburg (HfM) or the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS) at the same time:
If you are enrolled at the University of Würzburg and the University of Music Würzburg (HfM) or the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS) at the same time, please re-enrol at the institution at which the re-enrolment deadline expires first.
To re-enrol at the other institution, simply submit to that institution an enrolment certificate as proof of your re‑enrolment.
If you are enrolled at the University of Würzburg and at the University of Applied Sciences Würzburg-Schweinfurt (FHWS) - Campus Schweinfurt at the same time, please note: In addition to the semester fees you have paid at one of these institutions, you will have to pay the fee for the public transport pass at the other institution.
You will not be able to re-enrol at the University of Würzburg and will not be able to validate your JMU student ID card (chip card) until you have submitted to Student Affairs an enrolment certificate issued by HfM/FHWS and (where applicable) proof of your having paid the additional fee for the public transport pass.
