You are required to re-register within the deadline before the start of each new semester if you wish to continue to study at TU Berlin. The printout of your enrollment certificate from tuPORT is your proof of re-registration.
You can view all relevant information regarding your personal re-registration in tuPORT.
You can check in your personal tuPORT under "Immatrikulation und Rückmeldung" to see if your re-registration has been successfully completed. You can then print out your enrollment certificate
Please always check after the semester change whether your re-registration was successful. Please also make sure that all conditions for re-registration have been met in tuPORT. The transfer of the semester fees does not automatically lead to successful re-registration if, for example, the proof of health insurance or also the proof of your degree - Master’s enrollment under reserve of revocation - is missing.
You need to re-register for the following semester by the end of the re-registration deadline. Please ensure that you register in full and by the deadline provided. With regard to the semester fees and contributions it means, that they have to be booked on the TU Berlin bank account until the end of the re-registration deadline. To initiate the transfer to our bank account on the last day of re-registration deadline is not sufficient. Please consider the respective bank terms.
A re-registration after the deadline is only possible on condition of late fee payment until the end of the current semester.
The current re-registration deadlines can be found here.
You will receive your notification of re-registration in good time to your TU email address. Not receiving the notification to re-register does not excuse you from the obligation to re-register as required. We recommend you regularly check your inbox for any new emails and ensure that your inbox has sufficient capacity. If you have previously experienced problems receiving emails, please contact IT support at ZECM.

Foreign students receiving a scholarship are exempt from paying the 50 euro administration fee included in the semester fee for the duration of the scholarship pursuant to § 2 (7) BerlHG. Once your scholarship ends, the system will automatically charge you the full semester fee.
If your scholarship is renewed or if you enrolled before submitting proof of your scholarship, please inform the relevant bachelor’s or master’s team immediately by email. You must also submit your scholarship award letter in tuPORT in the app “Upload documents” as the document type “sonstiges/other”. Otherwise, we are unable to waive the administration fee and you will be requested to pay the semester fee in full.
Please note that proof of your scholarship can only be considered for current and future semesters. Administration fees for past semesters for which you did not submit proof of scholarship will not be reimbursed.
As a rule, we can only accept proof from German scholarship providers.
As a student of a Berlin university, your primary residence must be located within the university’s catchment area. Pursuant to Section 7 (1) sentence 2 of the Act on the Admission to Higher Education Institutions in the State of Berlin to Degree Programs with Restricted Admission, the catchment area is the federal states of Berlin and Brandenburg. In accordance with the Federal Registration Act in its currently valid version, you are therefore required to register your residence with the authorities in the university's catchment area.
Pursuant to Section 10 (6) no. 1a of the Berlin State Higher Education Act in its currently valid version, you must submit proof of your personal ID with a valid Berlin or Brandenburg address or the respective residence registration certificate, should you not have already done so at the time of enrollment. Alternatively, you can enter your currently registered Berlin or Brandenburg address in tuPORT by changing your personal data in the portal.
We are obliged to inform you that violations of the obligation to register can be penalized with a fine according to the Federal Registration Act.
Visiting students and doctoral students are exempt from this regulation. Students whose study program does not require them to live in the catchment area for the duration of their studies (such as extraoccupational master’s studies) are likewise exempt.
You can find a receipt for the payment (Beitragsquittung) of semester contributions and fees in tuPORT via "Bescheide und Bescheinigungen".
This receipt (Beitragsquittung) is available from the summer semester 2019. Earlier semesters must be verified with your own bank statements.
As proof of payment of the semester fee, the tax office accepts your enrollment certificate and a copy of your bank statement.
