Removal from the Register of Students

The rules in force for removal from the Register of Students can be found in the Enrolment Rules of BTU Cottbus.

What can be the reasons for being removed from the enrolment register?
One may be removed from the enrolment register at one’s own request or by the administrative office as a consequence of some action (e.g. running out of chances to repeat a required examination or failure to register for the following semester). 

How do I request to have myself removed from the enrolment register when it is my own personal decision to leave the university?
Please fill out and submit to your respective administrative staff member in the registrar’s office the request form for removal from the enrolment register. You can state on the form what day you would like to be removed from the enrolment register, but the earliest date is the day that you submit the form. Your removal from the enrolment register cannot be backdated.  

If you are to be removed from the enrolment register before the end of the current semester (30th Sept. or 31st March), then you need to attach your Student I.D. to the request form. Please turn to the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg Link zu einer externen Seite Student Council for assistance with acquiring a partial refund of the Semester Ticket.

What do I need to be aware of when I am removed from the enrolment register?
Your affiliation with the BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg ends when you are removed from the enrolment register. Being removed from the enrolment register has ramifications on your health insurance, child benefits and BAföG financial support. If you are a foreigner residing in Germany on a visa for the purpose of studying, your residence right ends when you are removed from the enrolment register.

What happens to my BTU account when I am removed from the enrolment register?
Your BTU account is automatically deleted four weeks after you are removed from the enrolment register. For this reason, it is still possible for you to access your transcript of records online and emails sent to your BTU email address in the four weeks after you have been removed from the enrolment register.
