Adaption of the of regular study period/ Will summer semester count as a degree semester?

I have problems with my enrollment.

Have you used an incorrect purpose for the paymant?

Please write us an e-mail with the correct data and the one you used incorrectly. We will then forward your request to the accounting department. Please note that manual correction takes time and we cannot say how long it will take in your case. Please use the keyword "Überweisungsfehler" in your mail.

You have transferred too little?

Please transfer the missing amount as soon as possible. The payment will take at least 3-4 days to be seen as "fulfilled" in your portal, even with a real-time transfer. When your payment is received, the amount in your payment summary will initially be 0.00. However, it may take one to two days for the status in "Enrollment and Re-enrollment" in your portal to change to "fulfilled" as well. Only when this is the case will you also find your enrollment certificate in "Bescheide und Bescheinigungen" in your tuPORT. Please note that if you pay too late, you will have to add a late fee, which will increase the amount by €19.94.
If payment has been received too late or documents have not been uploaded in time, it is possible that you will be exmatriculated ex officio.
