Making Payments On Time

Students enrolled at RWTH Aachen must re-register before the start of every semester, so that they can continue your studies. Please transfer the semester fee on time. You will automatically receive a reminder e-mail to your RWTH address about the necessary payment at the beginning of the re-registration period. The e-mail includes details on the deadline for re-registration, the student body and social contribution fees, banking details, etc.

How Do I Re-Register?

By paying the semester fees on time, you officially submit your request to continue your studies. The amount has to be received by RWTH Aachen by the end of the re-registration period, i.e. the value date of your bank transfer has to prior to - and including - the last day of the registration period.

Re-Enrollment Ban

If you are debarred from re-enrolling, possibly due to not having paid your insurance or University Library fees, you will be notified in due course.

Re-Enrollment Ban for Exchange Students

The re-enrollment process for exchange students is identical to that of regular students at the University. There is one exception for students who stay longer at RWTH Aachen than originally planned, i.e. who extend their stay by another semester: by default, these students are initially debarred from re-enrollment. If you are an exchange student who wants to to apply for an extension of your stay, the Departmental Coordinator of your faculty must agree to notify the International Office of your intention to extend your stay. This notification is required for every semester that you wish extend your stay at RWTH Aachen.

As soon as this notification is received by the International Office, your re-enrollment is possible. Please contact your departmental adviser on time so that you can re-enroll on time. If you have any questions on this process, please contact the International Office.
