Re-registration deadline

Please re-register for every semester. No e-mails or payment requests will be sent to you. If you do not re-register, you will lose your student status and will be de-registered.

If the final oral exam (colloquium) is the only module that is missing to finish your studies, you should not re-register.

  • Pay the semester fee:
    In order to re-register, transfer the semester fee to the bank account of HTW Berlin. Please note the applicable re-registration deadlines.
  • Check your re-registration status and retrieve your enrolment certificate:
    You can check in the LSF portal whether your semester fee has been received and you are officially re-registered.
  • Validate your student card:
    As soon as you are been re-registered for the new semester, you can update your student card at a card validation terminal. You can also retrieve enrolment certificates yourself from the LSF portal.

Late re-registration

Even if the regular re-registration deadline has expired, you still have four weeks to re-register. A late penalty fee is payable for late re-registration and this must be transferred without any additional request together with your semester fee to the bank account of HTW Berlin.

Failure to re-register

If you do not pay the semester fee at all or pay not enough or pay it after expiry of the extended deadline, you will be automatically de-registered at the end of the previous semester and receive the de-registration notice.

Other reasons for denied re-registration

Regardless whether you have paid your semester fee on time, you can be denied routine re-registration for a number of reasons, e.g.

  • missing proof of health insurance
  • missing parts of the pre-study internship
  • failure to fulfil your conditions of admission
  • failure to attend scheduled examination counselling
  • missing language test

If such reasons exist, you will be informed in the LSF portal. For re-registration the missing proof is to be submitted by the applicable deadline.

Special cases

If you are

  • completing your final semester and only have the final oral examination to do in the coming semester, you do not need to re-register (exception: Public und Nonprofit-Management).
  • taking a dual study programme at two universities and are not exercising your membership rights at HTW Berlin, you should re-register at the other university and send proof of re-registration to Students Services.
  • taking an external leave semester, please remember that you still need to re-register.
