Refund of Semester Fees for Students of Campus Straubing

There are two different refund forms for Straubing Campus students. Which form is to be used depends on the date when you submit the application. Please read the following information carefully.

Refund before the start of the semester via TUM

These regulations are only valid if the refund request is received by Sept. 30 (for refund of the fee for winter semester) or by March 31 (for refund of the fee for summer semester).

  • If you renounce your place of study by Sept. 30/March 31.
  • If the de-registration took place by the last day of the previous semester.
  • Exemption due to severe disability.

Refund after the start of the semester via Studentenwerk Niederbayern/Oberpfalz

Students at the Straubing Campus can reclaim the semester fee after the start of the semester (Oct 1/Apr 1) by applying to the Studentenwerk Niederbayern/Oberpfalz. Please read the statutes of the Studentenwerk Niederbayern/Oberpfalz. Refunds are only possible under the stipulated conditions and if the deadlines  are met.

Reasons for a refund for students at the Straubing Campus can be: 

Severe disability
Parallel Studies
Admission to a course of study with restricted admission

Please send your application directly to the Studentenwerk Niederbayern/Oberpfalz with valid bank details.

If your validated Student Card is not returned in time, a refund of the fees is not possible.

Please note

If you are still taking examinations that are assigned to the previous semester up to one week after the start of lectures in a new semester, you do not need to re-register for this. This also includes a test to be taken after the FPSO as the last examination.

An exception is the submission of your thesis – for this you have to be matriculated.

These regulations can be found in § 14 of the General Examination and Study Regulations for Bachelor's and Master's Programs at the Technische Universität München.

How do I apply for a refund?
