You pay the semester fee for enrollment and re-registration via transfer to the University Cashier. It is not possible to pay the semester fee in cash to the University Cashier. And it is not possible to pay the semester fee in installments.
You can find out how to retrieve your current semester fees and payment information here in the video tutorial (only in german).
You must include the personal reference provided in tuPORT with your transfer. Otherwise we are unable to clearly match your payment to your matriculation number.
Refundable amounts will NOT be offset against semester amounts due. Please always transfer the semester amount required for the respective semester in full. Otherwise, re-registration is not possible! You can find the semester amount for the current re-registration semester in the app "My Account Balance" in your tuPORT.
Additional information about the re-registration can be found here.
