Allocation Open Admission Master
The Process Step by Step
You must first register in RWTHonline. Using the "applications" app you can submit one or more applications. Please make note of the current application deadlines.
All documents required for admission must be uploaded or possibly submitted by mail or in person – if indicated in the application wizard – by the application deadline.
If your application is incomplete after this deadline, it will not be considered. If the deadline is on a Sunday, federal holiday, or a Saturday, the deadline ends at the end of the corresponding day and is not extended to the next business day.
In the next step, the Registrar's Office checks to see if the formal prerequisites are fulfilled. If the formal prerequisites are not fulfilled, you will receive a rejection letter after the application deadline has passed.
You can use the self service function in RWTHonline to view the current status of your application. You will also be informed here of any missing documents. We recommend regularly checking your application status before the application deadline – January 15 for the summer semester and July 15 for the winter semester – to ensure that no documents are missing and you can participate in the allocation process.
The Registrar's Office will only notify you via the self service about any missing documents. It is your responsibility to regularly check your application status.
Review of the disciplinary requirements, that is review of admission, admission with provisions, or rejection, is the sole responsibility of the examination boards in the faculties.
Admission and rejection letters can be downloaded from the self service no later than mid-March for the summer semester and no later than mid-September for the winter semester. You can upload some of the documents needed fo renorllment in RWTHonline. Other documents must be submitted in person to the Registrar's Office or via mail.
Please note that you must enroll by April 30 for the summer semester and October 31 for the winter semester. If the deadline is on a Sunday, federal holiday, or a Saturday, the deadline ends at the end of the corresponding day and is not extended to the next business day.
