Notarization of Documents

Here you will find everything you need to know about correctly notarized copies.

TUM does not accept original documents. During the online application process, you upload digital versions of your documents. The decision about your admission is based on these files. If you receive an offer of admission, we require certified hardcopies of certain documents for enrollment, e.g. of diplomas or degree certificates. This is the only way to make sure that the files we use to evaluate an application are identical with the original documents. 

If you receive an offer of admission and accept your study place, TUMonline will generate a list with the documents we require as certified hardcopies for enrollment 

Do not send in original degree certificates - TUM cannot assume liability for unsolicited originals. We digitalize all documents and destroy the hard copies after a period of 1 year. 

Please make sure your notarized copies comply with the requirements described here. If they do not, we cannot accept them.
