You have received an offer of admission at TUM, and would now like to enroll? On this website we show you the necessary steps. Enrollment is done via TUMonline, where you will receive a list of documents you need to send to TUM together with your application for enrollment.
In order to be enrolled at TUM, you must first be granted admission to the program for which you have applied. You can find out whether you have been admitted in your TUMonline account under My Applications in the menu item Admission. In addition, you will receive an e-mail from us informing you about the admission as well as about further steps required for enrollment at TUM.
Under the menu item Admission you can download your letter of admission.
Another prerequisite for enrollment is the acceptance of the study place. To accept your study place click on the button Accept study place offer in TUMonline under the menu item Study Place.
Please accept your study place in TUMonline as soon as possible. You can accept the study place by the enrollment deadline. But we recommend you do so before the semester begins, to complete the enrollment process by the deadline.
If you do not wish to begin your studies this semester, you must reject your place and reapply for your desired semester. For more information on reapplying, please refer to our website on Reserving your Spot or Deferring your Studies.
After you have accepted the study place, click on the button Add data under the menu item Enrollment.
Then fill out the form for the residual data entry and upload the necessary documents, if you have them. You can also upload the documents at a later date. In this case, skip the form for uploading the documents and complete the data entry. You will find the deadline for uploading the documents in the details of the respective document.
Please note: not all documents relevant for enrollment can be uploaded here via TUMonline. Some documents (e.g. diplomas) need to be notarized and sent to us by mail. Information about a correct certification can be found here: Authentication of documents
After you have completed the residual data entry, the link to the application for enrollment will be activated. If you cannot see the application for enrollment , you have not yet completed the residual data entry.
After you have completed the residual data entry, the link to the application for enrollment will be activated.
Now download the application for enrollment, sign the application and submit it together with the missing documents for enrollment. Applicants who have submitted a VPD for admission must submit all documents that have been uploaded to uni-assist to apply for the VPD in order to enroll at TUM.
Please send certified copies of all educational certificates, diplomas and certificates and, if required, other documents by post to
Technical University Munich
TUM Center for Study and Teaching
Application and Enrollment Office
Only educational certificates are required (e.g. school reports/certificates, transcripts, exam results). Please do not send CVs, motivation letters, or language certificates.
We recommend sending the documents with shipment tracking as we cannot provide information about the delivery of your documents.
Please note that processing your application usually takes 14 days after receipt of the mail.
Before you can be enrolled, your health insurance status has to be confirmed by a digital notification sent from a German public health insurance company (AOK, TK etc.) directly to TUM.
All applicants therefore need to contact a German public health insurance provider before enrollment – regardless of your country of origin.
The public health insurance provider confirms that you are already insured sufficiently or that you are exempt from the insurance obligation.
As soon as the statutory health insurance company can confirm your insurance status, it will be digitally transmitted to TUM (TUM’s number is H0001558). Without this notification from the health insurance company, you cannot be enrolled.
Until the digital notification arrives, there will be a suspension in your TUMonline account preventing you from being enrolled.
You will be enrolled at TUM as soon as
- you have received an offer of admission,
- you have accepted the study place,
- all documents (see list of documents in TUMonlnie) have been received by us in due time, are fully processed and marked as correct in your TUMonline account,
- you have transferred your semester fee in due time,
- your health insurance status has been confirmed by a digital notification sent from a German public health insurance company.
- Enrollment is only possible until the enrollment deadline. The deadlines for the upcoming semesters can be found on our website on dates, periods and deadlines.
- Registration for courses is only possible after complete enrollment.
- Also, the services for students (e.g. university library, cafeteria, semester ticket, etc.) can only be used once enrollment has been completed.
