You can review the reimbursements based on private law with the relevant institution (e.g. university sports).  

Official actions performed relating to military, civilian, or development service as well as pension calculation are free. Reasonable requests for fee waivers can be made (however, not for the administrative fees).

As of January 2008: the legal provisions and fee statutes in force at the time are authoritative.

Information about fees and contributions

+-

When enrolling for each semester, the University of Stuttgart collects semester fees. The amount currently is € 175,60. The fee is payable to the University of Stuttgart banc account referencing the current semester and the matriculation number. Semester dues cover the Administrative Dues, the Student Union dues (part of which goes toward the paying for the VVS StudiTicket) and the Student Service dues.

Due every semester is a € 70.00 payment for administrative services. The dues become payable with the application for enrollment or with the start of each semester without being billed for it. The administrative dues are also payable even when on leave. They are waived for the following categories of students:

  • International students who are enrolled at the University of Stuttgart under a university partnership (incl. the Erasmus program). They may have to obtain a certification to that effect from the Office of International Affairs. The Student Services dues, however, are not waived and must be paid.
  • Dual enrollees who have paid the administrative dues at the other university (the “primary university,” in particular at the Fine Arts Academy or the University of Music). Proof of payment in the form of a matriculation certificate must be presented before enrollment at the University of Stuttgart can be finalized.  

Please indicate informally in writing at the time of enrollment if one of the above exemptions applies to you and also attach the necessary evidence.

Legal basis: externer Link Section 12 Para. 3 State University Fees Act [de]

The contribution paid to Stuttgart Student Services is a solidarity contribution. Each student’s small dues payment every semester both contributes pro rata to the basic funding of the services provided by the relevant Student Services but also significantly to social leveling.This is true even if the student her/himself is not able to or perhaps does not wish to use the services provided (e.g., during study abroad or sabbatical semesters, pregnancy/parenting leave, illness, etc.)

The Stuttgart Student Service dues are made up of the “pure” Student Services dues and the part that provides the basic funding for Stuttgart public transit’s (VVS) StudiTicket transit pass. For students, it currently amounts to € 100.60. The contribution is due at enrollment or re-registration. The Student Services dues are also payable by students on leave of absence!

Legal basis and detailed information:

Part of the Student Services dues goes toward basic funding for the public transit VVS StudiTicket. Currently, this amounts to € 45.60 The StudiTicket allows unlimited travel on buses and trains in the entire Stuttgart Public Transit (VVS) network for six months (From October 1 to March 31 of the following year and respectively from April 1 to September 30) daily from 6:00 pm until service shut-down (including night buses) as well as all day on weekends and holidays. Your student ID with the appropriate VVS overprint serves as the transit pass. Should you want to use VVS throughout the day, you need to get an additional network pass and purchase a semester ticket from VVS.

Students who qualify as severely disabled and thus have the right to free use of local public transit are exempt from the base dues. Please show your green-orange colored disabled ID marked with “G” or “aG” with validity stamp to the Admissions Office as evidence of your status.

The University of Stuttgart Student Union levies dues amounting to € 5.00 per semester on every enrolled student (Section 60, para. 1, clause 1 LHG) and enrolled doctoral student (Section 38, para. 5, clause 2 LHG) to fund its administrative operations. The dues are also payable by students on a leave of absence from their studies. Payments are due every semester to the University of Stuttgart, and payable at enrollment or re-registration.

Legal basis: University of Stuttgart Student Body dues statutes (all documents only available in German)

Tuition fees until 2012

+-

The general tuition fee was rescinded by the State Government of Baden-Wuerttemberg at the start of the 2012 summer semester. The related legislation (Tuition Fee Abolition Act) took effect on December 31, 2011. Hence, the general tuition fee of 500 euro was collected the last time for the winter semester 2011/12.

University of Stuttgart general tuition fees are also waived for the international Master’s study programs GEOENGINE, COMMAS und WASTE. For more information, see:

To the extent that student loans were taken out from L-Bank, these must begin to be repaid with simple interest upon completion of studies. Installment payments (50 – 150 euro) begin two years after the semester in which the last loan amount was disbursed and are based on a net monthly income of at least 1,060 euro plus 480 euro for a non-earning spouse and 435 euro per child. For more information on the loan conditions and repayment alternatives, see the L-Bank web site.
