Deregistration

When you enroll (matriculation) you become a member of the university and you remain enrolled until you deregister. Information about how deregistration works, when it takes place automatically and when you have to apply and the consequences of this can be found on this page.

General information

Your membership at the University of Stuttgart expires with your deregistration. Deregistration takes place either

  • by application
  • or automatically (in German: von Amts wegen)

In both cases: please download your deregistration, pension, payment and curriculum certificates via C@MPUS (C@MPUS application "my certificates") and make sure you save these. Your access to C@MPUS will expire after approx. 8 months!

Application

You can send us your application using our contact form. Alternatively you can deliver it to us personally during the office open hours, or put it in our mailbox.

Studierendenservice und Prüfungsamt
Haus der Studierenden
Pfaffenwaldring 5c
70569 Stuttgart

If you deregister with immediate effect, you must hand in your ECUS student card. Please use our contact form all the same and just drop the ECUS student ID card (with a notice, not with a copy of the application) in the mailbox (Pfaffenwaldring 5c), send it by mail or hand it in during office open hours.

Deregistration during / at the end of the semester

If you wish to terminate your enrollment at the University of Stuttgart, you must deregister.

As a rule, deregistration comes into effect at the end of the semester. Only for special reasons and if you have the relevant supporting documents, it is also possible to deregister with immediate effect. Deregistration cannot be backdated.

You may deregister for the following reasons:

  • Graduation (proof is only required for continuing education study programs or for doctoral degrees)
  • Change of university (admission letter of the new university required as proof).
  • Voluntary service
  • Dropping out/suspending studies
  • Loss of admission rights for examinations
  • Other reasons

You can submit your application at any time. Please visit our reimbursement website to find out under what circumstances you are entitled to receive a refund of fees and contributions that have already been paid.

If you deregister with immediate effect, you must hand in your ECUS student card. Please use our contact form all the same and just drop the ECUS student ID card (with a notice, not with a copy of the application) in the mailbox (Pfaffenwaldring 5c), send it by mail or hand it in during office open hours.

Your deregistration certificate will be made available in C@MPUS immediately after your application has been processed.

Information about the reimbursement of fees and contributions

Deregistration at the end of your study program

You finish your study program during the semester and are enrolled. As soon as your degree has been recorded and your graduation documents have been sent, your deregistration will be entered into C@MPUS and you will be officially deregistered at the end of the semester. However, if you have already submitted an application (e.g. during the transition from Bachelor to Master), you will not be deregistered.

You do not need to submit an application and will receive written notification from the University.

You have registered for your last exams (last partial exam or your final thesis) and do not want to re-register. You do not have to be enrolled to take your last examination. This includes repeat exams. Please note, however, that this means you will lose your student status and you will no longer be able to use some of the university facilities, for example.

Please submit your application for deregistration. You can be de-registered for "other reasons".

Re-registration at the end of your study

You have re-registered, received your graduation documents, and would like to deregister with immediate effect during the semester. Depending on when you wish to deregister, it is possible to receive a refund of your fees and contributions. Doctoral students and continuing education master's students please enclose a copy of your degree certificate or diploma.

Please submit your application for deregistration.

Important certificates that you should download and save after the deregistration process has been completed can be found in C@MPUS, in the application "my certificates". The reasons for deregistration are recorded on your deregistration certificate. "Graduation" is only recorded as a reason if you were enrolled at the time when your degree was recorded.

Before beginning your studies

You have enrolled with us, but you now do not wish to accept the university place after all.

By September 30 (winter semester) or March 31 (summer semester) at the latest, you can declare that you wish to waive your study place and/or cancel your enrollment, even if you have already paid your contributions/fees.

Your enrollment cannot be cancelled after September 30 or March 31 respectively. Under certain circumstances, however, deregistration with immediate effect is still possible.

To find out what you need to do waive your study place, to cancel your enrollment or to receive a reimbursement of your contributions/fees please visit the page "Reimbursement of fees and contributions".

Reimbursement of fees and contributions

Automatic deregistration (in German: "von Amts wegen")

Meaning and reasons for this

An automatic deregistration means that the university deregisters you. For example, this can be the case for the following reasons:

  • You have completed your degree (see above)
  • You have failed to pay the necessary fees and contributions despite receiving reminders
  • You have lost your right to be admitted to examinations.
    If you are studying on a bachelor’s program with major and minor subjects and you lose the right to be admitted to examinations in your minor study program, only this part of your study program will be terminated. However, you must complete the full degree program combination to graduate. You are welcome to seek advice on this from the Student Counseling Center.
  • You have not fulfilled your statutory health insurance obligations.

What you must do

Please pay attention to the exact wording of the deregistration certificate. If you believe that you have been wrongly deregistered or if you have any general questions, you should contact the Student Services and Examinations Office immediately.

It is not possible to appeal against deregistration. It may be possible to appeal against the underlying reason for your deregistration (e.g. loss of right to be admitted to examinations). Be careful not to miss the deadline!

Further information

Deregistration does not end examination processes that have already begun! Repeat examinations must be taken in accordance with the applicable examination regulations, even if you have already completed the deregistration process; otherwise, as a rule, your right to take the examination expires.

You do not have to be enrolled to take graded assessments. As soon as you have registered for your last examination (last partial examination or your thesis), you have the option to apply to deregister at the end of the current semester

For more information, see our "re-registration" page.

Re-registration

For students who have statutory health insurance, the university must notify the relevant health insurance company of your deregistration; this process takes place electronically. If you have taken out a tuition fee loan, you must inform L-Bank of your deregistration.
