Dual enrollment

Everything there is to know about dual enrollment at the University of Stuttgart.

Simultaneous admission and enrollment in more than one university (institution of higher education) as a rule is not feasible (Section 60 para. 1 State Higher Education Act – LHG). Exceptions may, however, be made in the following cases: (Section 60 para. 1 LHG).

  1. Simultaneously enrolling in a study program at more than one university is only permitted if a cooperation agreement exists between the universities. This applies specifically to study programs offered jointly by the Universities of Hohenheim and Stuttgart.
  2. Dual enrollment in the new Bachelor’s for the High School State Examination for Teachers Study program:
    Combining subjects with other higher education institutions is permitted only if the institutions have concluded a cooperation agreement and coordinate their exam regulations. At present, the University of Stuttgart only cooperates with the University of Hohenheim (Subject: Biology), with the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart (Stuttgart Fine Arts Academy) (Subject: Arts) and the State University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart (Stuttgart University of Music) (Subject: Music). Combining subjects with other institutions of higher learning is not permitted!
    For combining subjects with biology, enrollment for both sub-study programs takes place only at the University of Stuttgart (no dual enrollment). For subject combinations with art or music, evidence is required of being duly enrolled for the relevant degree work at the Fine Arts Academy or the University of Music
  3. Dual enrollment in the State Examination for Teachers GymPO1 and KPO (State Examination for Teachers in the Arts):
    In these cases, a dual enrollment at the University of Stuttgart and the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart (Stuttgart Fine Arts Academy), the State University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart (Stuttgart University of Music), or the Trossingen State University of Music is permissible without special concurrence by the participating university; however, evidence of enrollment at one of the named universities for this degree must be furnished to the University of Stuttgart.
    Please note that the high school State Examination study programs were suspended for the 2015/2016 winter semester; therefore, please refer to the guidelines [de] for more information on how to complete studies for GymPO I or KPO.
  4. Dual enrollment in the State Examination for Teachers under GymPO I:
    Simultaneous enrollment in different sub-study programs for the GymPO State Examination for Teachers is invalid if a combination could be studied in toto at one university.

The Administrative Fee per Section 12, para. 3 LHGebG is to be paid at the university where the bulk of the studies takes place. For dual enrollment in the State Examination for Teachers in the Arts, this will always be the Fine Arts or Music university. The Student Union fee stipulated in the student fee regulations must be paid to the University of Stuttgart even when there is dual enrollment.

Students dual enrolled in the State Examination for Teachers for GymPO and KPO and the Bachelor’s State Examination for Teachers at the University of Stuttgart and the State Academy of Fine Arts in Stuttgart (Stuttgart Fine Arts Academy) or the State University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart (Stuttgart University of Music) are considered dual enrollees at the University of Stuttgart and only pay the Student Union fee to the University of Stuttgart.

Students taking a subject combination with Biology in Hohenheim pay the full Semester Dues at the University of Stuttgart.

During the reregistration period, the fees/contributions are either to be paid at the University of Stuttgart or evidence has to be furnished of having successfully enrolled at the other university.
