Waiving your Place of Study or
Withdrawing from Enrollment

You have been offered a place of study at TUM, but do not want to accept it? Here is what you need to know. 

You have received an offer of admission, but need to defer your studies? These are your options. 

Waiving a Place of Study

You have two options to waive a place of study:

You can decline the offer of admission in your TUMonline Account.

If you have already been enrolled, you can revoke your enrollment until the start of the semester (September 30 for winter semester and March 31 for summer semester). Please note that this is only possible for first time enrollment or re-enrollment, not for continued enrollment.

After waiving your place of study, the semester fees you already paid are refunded.

Withdrawing from Enrollment

You have already been enrolled, and would now like to withdraw from enrollment?

Until the start of the semester (September 30 for winter semester and March 31 for summer semester), you can revoke the enrollment- see waiving a place of study

Until up to 5 weeks after the start of the lecture period you can withdraw from enrollment. Please note that this is only possible for first time enrollment or re-enrollment, not for continued enrollment.

You will then receive a confirmation of your withdrawal from enrollment via TUMonline. In this case you are, however, generally obligated to pay the semester fees for the semester in which you withdraw from enrollment.
