Hardship Guidelines

When applying for bachelor programs with limited admissions (numerus clausus) or which require aptitude tests, a hardship petition can help put disadvantaged applicants on  equal footing.

Degree programs with aptitude assessment

If you have an impairment which impacts your studies negatively, the impairment can be considered for your application. You need to inform the registration office, therefore send an e-mail with your application number and „hardship“ as subject to studium(at)tum.de.

Secondary School Disability Assessment

Did your disability or chronic illness have a negative impact on your final grades in secondary school? In this case, you can submit a disability assessment that clarifies what your grades would have been in the absence of the disability or chronic illness. Contact your school to obtain such an assessment.
