Examinations

Below you will find a wealth of information covering examinations, registration guidelines and examination schedules.

You should nevertheless consult the academic and examination regulations that apply to your degree program!

Academic and Examination Regulations

All examinations at TUM are governed under the General Academic and Examination Regulations for Bachelor's and Master's Programs (APSO) and the General Diploma Examination Regulations (ADPO) for discontinued diploma degree programs, in conjunction with the Study and Examination Regulations (FPSO) for the respective school. Section 1 of your FPSO stipulates whether your course of study falls under ADPO or APSO.

The APSO and ADPO contain binding procedural regulations for all diploma degree and bachelor's or master's degree programs at TUM. The FPSOs for the individual TUM degree programs then govern the program-specific prerequisites for examination approvals, the examination requirements and the course of study.

All statutes and regulations can be found in TUM’s statute database.

Please consult the academic and examination regulations that apply you to make sure that you are aware of important regulations such as progress monitoring.

Nonadherence to these regulations can have serious consequences, including failing the entire course of study.

Contact

When it comes to examinations, there are three important points of contact at TUM:

1. The office of student affairs for each school or department is responsible for organizing course work examinations in the individual degree programs, examination registration and cancellation, certificates and withdrawals, administration of grades and the publication of examination results.

2. Each course of study has a corresponding examination committee resident within the schools. The committees are responsible for reviewing hardship and exception applications as well as recognizing credit and degree program requirements.

3. The Graduation Office and Academic Records department creates the Notification of Examination Results on a semester basis, graduation documents and preliminary degree certificates as well as benefits statements such as verifications for pension insurance and family/child allowances.

Certified copies of TUM-internal graduation documents are exclusively issued by the TUM Certification Office on Campus Weihenstephan. More info and contacts
