Semester fee for first-time enrollees and exchange students

The currently valid semester fee for the winter semester 2023/24 is 326,00 €

(16,00 € - ASTA; 109,00 € - Studierendenwerk; 1,60 € - Zustellungsgebühr; 176,40 € - Semesterticket; 23,00 € Chipkarte)

After checking your documents we will send you a payment request for the semester fee via email with the bank details.

Please pay only after the payment request (only for Bachelor applicants).

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

Should you withdraw your enrolment by 31.03. (summer semester) or 30.09. (winter semester), the semester fee will be refunded, minus a fee for cancelling the enrolment amounting to 25.00 euros.  If an ID card has already been issued, the amount for the chip card of 23.00 euros cannot be refunded.

The semester fee has to be paid to the following account:

Recipient: LHK Mainz/ Umwelt-Campus Birkenfeld
Name of Bank: Postbank Ludwigshafen
IBAN: DE45 5451 0067 0009 6236 71

Reference: last name, first name, matriculation number or applicant number or birth date

Please enter your first and last name and student matriculation number or applicant number or birth date in the field 'reason for payment'. Should this information be missing, there might be a delay in the confirmation. In this case, it is the student's responsibility to retrace the transfer and prove it has taken place.

Fees for second degree studies

A second degree is the acquisition of a second university degree, which is thematically and formally independent of the first degree,  for example, another Bachelor's degree in another subject. The first Master's degree after a Bachelor's degree (or more) is not a second degree. A further Master's degree after completing a Master, however, counts as a second degree. In these cases, a fee of 700,00 € per semester is charged in addition to the semester fee. Excepted from tuition are students on leave for the duration of their leave of absence.

Fees for continuing Master studies

Continuing Master programs are often subject to a fee. In additional to the normal semester fees, further fees are charged. The exact amount differs from degree course to degree program. Please check the corresponding course pages.
