Text of the examination regulations:
Students must independently register or deregister for all examinations and all repeat examinations in the university's electronic examination administration system within the registration deadlines (cut-off deadlines) applicable during the respective semester. Unless otherwise specified by the examination board or the body appointed by it, the time limit for registration or withdrawal for each examination will expire at midnight three working days before the date of the examination. Saturdays are not counted as working days. If the registration is not made in time, participation in the examination is not permitted. If the cancellation is not made within the deadline, the examination will be assessed as "failed" if the students do not take this examination without good reason. The examination board decides on exceptions.
Yes, you have to utilize the QIS system to register for Interdisciplinary projects, technical projects and laboratory projects. Deadlines for the registration are 15 May for the summer semester projects and 15 November for the winter semester projects.
If you are not registered for an examination within the given deadline, you are not allowed to participate in the examination.
As of the winter semester 2019/2020 late registration for exams will NO LONGER be accepted!!!
Please check the QIS system on a regular basis to ensure that you are correctly registered for all the examinations that you would like to participate in. Please contact the Examination Office immediately during the registration deadlines if you have problems with the registration.
For technical difficulties pertaining to the registration for examinations please contact the Examination Office prior to the deadline. This can be done via email up until the last day of the deadline. In this email please write the problems you are experiencing and for which examination you would like to have the Examination Office register you for. If this email reaches the Examination Office before the end of the deadline (last day of the deadline, 23.59 P.M.) your registration can be processed. If not, a participation is not possible.
You can only de-register from an examination if the examination is not a mandatory required examination. This is only possible for examinatinos that are attempted for the first time and do not fall under the "1+4 regulation".
For example, the first attempt of an examination of the 1st semester (curriculum) can be done voluntarily in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th semster meaning a re-registration is possible. In the 5th semester, a re-registration from this examination is no longer possible because of the "1+4 regulation" and you must attempt the examination for the first time.
A re-registration is only possible prior to the provided deadlines found in the QIS system. Examinations that fall under the "1+4 regulation" and for repeat attempts, a de-registration is not possible. A de-registration from these examinations is only possible if, for example, you were to fall ill and provide a medical attestation.
A withdrawal from an examination which has begun is only possible if an acutely occurring valid reason exists. For example, after the beginning of the exam, you begin to feel very ill and it is not possible for you to continue with the examination because your performance capability is limited and it is obvious to you that you can not complete the examination.
In this case, the following steps must be taken in accordance with the regulation provided by the examination boards for the departments of Environmental Planing/Environmental Technology and Environmental Business Mangagement/Enviorenmental Law:
If you participate in an examination even though your performance capability is limited due to an illness, it is your own risk , decision and responsibility to decide if you want to continue with the examination and subsequently submit the examination to the proctor. With this decision, you have to accept the fact that you may fail the examination and any other additional consequences this might cause. If you chose to wait for the examination to be graded, you will give up your official right to withdraw from the examination.
If, after starting your studies in one course of study, you discover that this course of study does not relate to what you have in mind for your professional career, you can apply for a change to another course of study.
You can do this online via the StudIS portal with your student account. To do this, select the function "Änderung der Einschreibung" (Change of enrollment) and follow the steps there through to the end.
The application for a change of the course of study must be printed out and submitted to the Student Service Office.
The application must be submitted within the re-registration period for the following semester, at the latest by the end of a semester for the following semester.
We advise you to seek detailed advice from the Examination Office before changing degree programs and to make an appointment with the person responsible for your degree program.
After a change of course of study, you will receive a provisional assessment notice from the Student Services Office stating that you must apply for recognition of achievements within the first semester after enrolment. Please contact the Examination Office as soon as possible to clarify the details.
Recognition will be granted on the basis of your achievements from the old degree course in accordance with the recognition lists for the new degree course established by the department.
Based on the recognized ECTS credit points, the student is placed in the corresponding semester in the new course of study:
0 – 29 ECTS = 1. Semester
30 – 59 ECTS = 2. Semester
60 – 89 ECTS = 3. Semester
90 – 119 ECTS = 4. Semester
120 – 149 ECTS = 5. Semester
150 – 179 ECTS = 6. Semester
180 – 209 ECTS =7. Semester
Yes, you can change back to or re-enrol in a course of study in which you have already been enrolled. However, this is only possible if you still have the right to take the examination. If you lose your examination entitlement in this course of study, you will not be able to re-enroll in this course of study.
If you re-enroll in a course of study in which you have already enrolled, the old status is restored. This means that the semester count continues where it left off. In addition, the failed attempts that have already been made will be counted towards the re-enrolment. Any work already done will be recognized ex officio.
Please note that if you re-enroll in the same course of study, you will have to take any upcoming repeat examinations immediately. The same applies to examinations that are due according to the "1+4 regulation".
You will be notified of the recognition of ECTS credits, failed attempts and semesters as well as the upcoming examination obligation by the Examination Office in a final assessment decision.
