Leave of Absence

Leave of Absence

Students who for important reasons are unable to attend the courses necessary to achieve the study objective in a semester, may be on leave of absence at the request. A leave of absence should not be extended over two consecutive semesters. A leave of absence is valid only for one semester, starting at the beginning of the semester. The request must be submitted by the end of the registration period. The reason for requesting a leave of absence together with appropriate evidence, i.e. medical certificates, must be included in the request. It is not possible to grant leave of absence before the start of the study period and during the first semester. It is also not possible to back-date a leave of absence. Exceptions are granted only if sudden and unexpected events occur within 4 weeks after the start of the semester which make a leave of absence necessary. Leave of absence does not count as a semester. During a leave of absence no coursework and examinations can be performed.

Please note that the student fee must be paid within the re-enrollment deadline even if an application for a leave of absence has been requested.

The following will be accepted as reasons for leave of absence:

  • a prolonged illness of the student, which will prevent proper studies during the relevant semester
  • caring for a sick or needy relative as well as life partner, which will make it impossible to follow a proper course of study during the semester
  • Internships, provided they are not deemed mandatory by the examination regulations
  • a study abroad or practical work abroad in connection with study career perspectives
  • times of pregnancy or parental leave
  • working to finance the studies
  • activities in accordance with the Federal Voluntary Service Act (BFDG)
  • other specific social hardships

A leave of absence cannot be granted to prepare for a final exam.

You will find the application for leave under forms and applications on the following page.

Termination of Enrollment

Termination of Enrollment

Students wishing to terminate their enrollment without having graduated must forward an „Antrag auf Exmatrikulation“ (Request for Termination of Enrollment), signed by officials at the examination office, library, etc. (see request).

If it not possible to apply for termination of enrollment before the semester ends, the student ID card and the record of courses taken must be returned to the registrar’s office.

Students who have successfully completed their studies at Environment Campus Birkenfeld consult the student’s office regarding their termination of enrollment.

Please consult the student’s office regarding termination of enrollment for other reasons than the ones mentioned above.

Re-registration

Re-registration

General Information:

Students need to renew their registration at each subsequent semester within the re-enrollment period.

Please refer to the time table for the dates of the re-enrollment period.

Students also need to renew their registration if they plan to change their course of study or request a leave of absence.

When the money for the semester contribution has been received the student has been re-enrolled and the confirmation of enrollment will be forwarded to the student by mail.

At „purpose“ please only and clearly write your first and last name and the registration number, otherwise you will not be re-enrolled.  It is your responsibility to proof that the money for your re-enrollment has been transferred.

Please note that money transfers, even when using online banking, can take up to 5 days.

The university will levy a surcharge of €21.00 on late re-enrollment.

For further information please contact your student office.

Additional Information:

After the money has been received you are automatically re-enrolled into the next semester. Re-enrollment is not possible if an examination has failed without option to re-sit (loss of right to sit an examination) or after the final exam has been passed.

Please contact your student’s office in good time regarding this matter.

Applications for leave of absence need to be handed in together with a written statement and the respective documents stating the reasons for the leave of absence.  Applications for change of the course of study are available at the examinations office.  Please ask your examinations office for information regarding a change of your chosen course of study.

Please note that applications for leave of absence must be filed during the re-enrollment period.  Applications for a change of study course can be filed at the examinations office until the end of the semester but will take effect at the start of the following semester.
