The regulations in the Enrolment Regulations of the BTU Cottbus apply to guest auditors on the Main Campus in Cottbus. One may not register for more than eight weekly course hours per semester (SWS).

How do I acquire admission to be a guest auditor?

The Request for admission as a guest auditor is to be submitted to Student Services on time – no later than one month after the start of the lecture period (see the Schedule of Events). An application may only be submitted for one semester at a time.
A guest auditor fee based on the current fee regulations of the BTU applies for admission as a guest auditor. A remittance slip for the payment of this fee will be sent to you per postal mail. After the payment of the fee has been booked by the university, you will receive a guest auditor certificate. Possession of this certificate authorizes you to attend the modules/courses named on the certificate.
What is the fee to be a guest auditor?

The fee depends on the number of weekly course hours per semester (SWS) for which you are registered:
1 - 2 SWS    € 10.00
3 - 4 SWS     € 17.50
5 - 6 SWS    € 25.00
7 - 10 SWS    € 30.00
