Auditors at RWTH Aachen pay a fee of 100 euros per semester.


The auditing fee can be waived in some exceptions. This is the case if paying the fee would lead to social hardship, that is unreasonable financial strain. This occurs if an individual has a very low income or is unemployed and no other financial supports or means are available. Individuals who would like to have the fee waived must submit a request to the Registrar's Office and bring the corresponding documentation. The application deadline ends when the respective registration deadline ends.
