Applicants from Germany will receive their chip card (student ID/chip card) and the activation code for their BTU account by post, unsolicited, up to one week before the start of lectures. If you pay the semester fees later, you will receive an email with a date when you can pick up your chip card at our Infothek at the Central Campus or the Senftenberg Campus. All international applicants will also receive an email with a date when they can pick up their chip card at our Infothek at the Central Campus or the Senftenberg Campus.

Your chip card fulfils various functions.

  •     Student ID
  •     Use of the library
  •     Copy card
  •     Public transport ticket

Please remember to re-register for each new semester (semester fee) and to renew the validity print on your ID card after each re-registration.


Modules are concluded with a module examination. A module examination takes place either in writing or orally at the end of the module as a module final examination (MAP) or as a continuous assessment (MCA) during the semester. Written final module examinations can be taken in the form of a term paper or a written examination.

Registration for the examination takes place in the 1st to 3rd week of lectures.

For modules that conclude with a written or oral final module examination, the deadline for deregistration is one week before the start of the examination period in which the examination is offered for the first time. Any prerequisite for participation in the module final examination acquired by then remains valid if the module final examination is made up within two semesters. If the prerequisite has not been acquired, the student is automatically deregistered from the final module examination.

For modules with Continuous Assessment, deregistration from the module is permitted in the first three weeks of the lecture period of the respective semester.

Registration/deregistration is done via the online portal. In the manual for the online portal you will find an explanation of all the functions of the online portal and how to use them (i.e. also the registration and deregistration of exams).

Eine Prüfung kann bis zu 2 mal wiederholt werden. Bei Wiederholungsprüfungen kann diese bis eine Woche vor der Prüfung an- bzw. wieder abgemeldet werden.

Weitere Informationen findet ihr in der Rahmenordnung, die ab Wintersemester 2016/2017 gültig ist.
