Registering for Research-oriented Study Programmes

Registering and paying semester fees for the following summer semester 2018

In order to continue your studies in the following semester, you need to register during the current semester in the registration deadline (see the schedule of events and deadlines).  

Registration period for the summer semester 2018: 2nd January to 31st January 2018
The current semester fee is 270,73 Euros.

If you fail to register by the deadline, then you have until the end of the grace period (to 15th March 2018) to pay the semester fee. In this case you need to pay an additional fee of 15 Euros. That means that you must pay 285,73 Euros (270,73 Euros + 15 Euros). If you fail to register by the end of the grace period, then you will be automatically expelled from the university. 

Bank Transfer at the Bank 

  • You can print out a remittance slip at the computers in the main building, room 0.27 as of a week before the beginning of the registration period (this slip is already filled out with the appropriate BTU account information) 
  • OR 
  • You can fill out a remittance slip yourself using the following information:

    Attention: This Bank account is valid only for Students with Enrolment number 7-digit!

    Remittee: BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg
    Bank: Sparkasse Spree-Neiße
    Bank Routing Number: 180 500 00
    Account Number: 3111103020
    Reference Number/Reason for Transfer: Write the number 18124 followed by your enrolment number. 
    IBAN: DE  67180500003111103020

You can find all of the necessary information for your online transfer at the Link zu einer externen Seite Online-Portal under Study > Registration Information. 

It takes at least four days for your payment to be booked by BTU! When registering, only the date of booking is relevant and not the date on which you initiated the payment. If the payment deadline falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or official holiday, then the deadline is not extended until the next workday (§ 31, Abs. 3, S. 2 Brandenburg administrative proceedings law). 

Your registration for the following semester is complete when your payment is booked by BTU. You may then print a certificate of enrolment for the following semester and get a new validation stamp printed on your chip card!  

If you would like to request a leave of absence or change of degree programme, then you should do this during the registration period. If you change your health insurance company, then it suffices for you to just hand in a certificate from your new health insurance company to the registrar's office.
