Application Bachelor / State Examination


To the Online Application

RWTHonline application portal for the 2021/22 winter semester will open on May 3, 2021.

RWTHonline Selfservice will allow you to view the current status of your application. Here, you are also informed about missing documents. We recommend checking the status of your application before the deadline for submitting additional documents (January 21 for the summer semester and August 26 for the winter semester) to ensure that no documents are missing and that you can participate in the allocation process.

The Registrar's Office will only inform you that documents are missing through Selfservice. It is your responsibility to regularly check your application status.

An application is only possible after you have received your Abitur certificate.
