If you have received a suspension, this means that you cannot enroll for the next semester for the time being. There can be different reasons for this. On this page you will learn how a suspension can occur and how you can have it lifted.

What is a suspension?

The suspension means that enrollment for the next semester is not possible for the time being. The reason can be found in TUMonline.

The enrollment suspension is imposed when a circumstance occurs that prevents further study.

The University will impose a suspension until students submit proof that the circumstance has been removed.

Students are then required to submit proof as soon as possible so that the suspension can be lifted.

What should I do if I got a suspension?

Please inform yourself in TUMonline about the reason for your suspension and how you can remove it.

Only when correct proof has been submitted (see below) can the suspension be removed and your studies continued.

Until when can the suspension be lifted?

A suspension is imposed for the following semester and should be lifted by the beginning of the semester if possible.

The suspension can be lifted up to a maximum of five weeks after the start of lectures (enrollment deadline). After that, enrollment for the semester is no longer possible.

What can I do if I have been disenrolled because of the suspension?

If the suspension has not been lifted by the start of the semester, you will be disenrolled.

The disenrollment can be lifted upon request via email if the reason for the suspension has been removed.

Please send an e-mail to studium(at) with the request for the disenrollment to be lifted, the document of proof (see below) and a transfer receipt for the semester fee. The disenrollment can be lifted up to a maximum of five weeks after the start of lectures (enrollment deadline).
