Final verdict of the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany regarding the re-registration fee from 2001-2008

On January 17th 2017, the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany (Bundesverfassungsgericht) decided that the regulation found in § 30 Abs. 1a sentence 1 of the Brandenburgische Hochschulgesetz (BbgHG) enforced from July 1st 2000 to December 19th 2008, was in fact in violation of Germany’s Constitution.  For this reason, the regulation has been deemed invalid in the cases were a fee of 100 German Mark and later 51 Euros were charged for re-registration.

The BVerfG has not decided how persons who were charged this unlawful fee will be refunded, but a decision regarding the claims received thus far will be handled by the High Administrative Court (Oberverwaltungsgericht) of Berlin-Brandenburg.

At the moment, no further information regarding the refund of fees is available. Due to this we kindly ask that you, until further notice, to abstain from contacting us with questions or a refund request. Refund requests sent to us by mail will not be considered.

We kindly ask for your patience and understanding. Further information will be published here in due course as we continue to coordinate with the Ministerium für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kultur of the Federal State of Brandenburg.

Please note that this verdict does not refer to the re-registration fees charged under the Brandenburgische Hochschulgesetz after the 18th of December 2008.
