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

To mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on your studies, the Berlin House of Representatives has decided that standard periods of study will be extended by one semester for all students enrolled for summer semester 2020, winter semester 2020/21 and summer semester 2021 and who did not take a semester’s leave.

A certificate about the change of the regular study period due to the Covid 19 pandemic ( "Bescheinigung über die Änderung der Regelstudienzeit aufgrund der Covid-19-Pandemie") you can find here.

You can present this together with your current enrollment certificate if required to provide proof to official offices that your standard period of study has not yet expired.

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. There will also be the possibility to make a request for goodwill by 15 November 2021. You can find information about this here.

login problems with the password

Therefore, please check your tuPORT for changes daily until you are successfully enrolled.

If all documents in the corresponding degree program have been fulfilled in the "Enrollment and Re-enrollment" app, you can download in tuPORT a certificate of enrollment. Please note that you have to set the filters first. You can find out how to do this here.
