The certificate replaces form 2 for your BAföG application. Students who receive BAföG must send the certificate to: Studierendenwerk Stuttgart, Amt für Ausbildungsförderung, Holzgartenstr. 11, 70174 Stuttgart/Germany. We will not provide manual confirmation of the form (form 2).
FARE DISCOUNTS ON THE GERMAN RAILWAY (DEUTSCHE BAHN) AND OTHER TRANSPORT PROVIDERS
Students under 27 years of age who are studying at universities in the region covered by the VVS regional transport cooperative can subscribe to the JugendTicketBW on production of the necessary proof. The ticket enables you to travel throughout Baden-Württemberg for EUR 365 per year.
To obtain fare discounts when travelling with transport providers outside the VVS area, you must present your valid student identity card and your semester certificate together with your ticket application in each case. The university will not provide separate confirmation of applications for fare discounts.
What is the enrolment deadline?
It is imperative that you observe the enrolment deadline when you enrol. You will find details of the enrolment deadline in the “Enrolment” section of your applicant account in the HEonline Campus Management System.
Your enrolment application with all documents listed in your account must have been received electronically at Esslingen University of Applied Sciences and the subscriptions and fees due must have been received on the account of the Landesoberkasse by this date.
If you are not able to submit certain documents by the enrolment deadline, please contact Student Services.
The enrolment deadline is a cut-off date; this means that when you miss this deadline, it is no longer possible to enrol and your place will be awarded to somebody else.
Mandatory fees and subscriptions
The mandatory semester fees and subscriptions are made up of the administration fee, the Student Services Organisation subscription and the Student Association subscription. You must have paid these fees and subscriptions by the enrolment deadline.
In the “Enrolment” section of your applicant account in the HEonline Campus Management System you can see the fees and subscriptions you have to pay for your degree programme and when the enrolment deadline is.
Please pay in good time
Please transfer the amount due to the bank account stated in your applicant account in good time. Please make sure that you complete the ‘Payment reference (Verwendungszweck)’ with the complete and correct information as stated in your account, since otherwise your payment to the Landesoberkasse cannot be assigned to our university (payments for all universities of applied sciences in Baden-Württemberg are made to the Landesoberkasse). Particularly important here is the complete ‘Payment reference’ including your student ID number, which you can likewise find in your applicant account.
You will only be enrolled when your payment has been received at the Landesoberkasse by the enrolment deadline. Please therefore ensure that the amount due is transferred in good time.
Who may be exempted from the Student Services Organisation subscription?
Disabled students enrolled on the Applied Surface and Material Science programme can be partially exempt from the Student Services Organisation subscription.
When the severity of your disability entitles you to use local public transport for free, you can apply to have the portion of the subscription which covers the SemesterTicket reimbursed. Please pay the full Student Services Organisation subscription when you enrol/re-enrol and then submit an informal application for reimbursement to Studierendenwerk Ulm, James Franck-Ring 8, 89081 Ulm and include the following information: copy of your disability ID card, certificate of enrolment, bank statement to prove the semester fees and subscriptions have been paid, details of your bank account (for the money to be reimbursed).
Note: The partial exemption applies only to disabled students on the Applied Surface and Material Science programme, which is offered in cooperation with Aalen University of Applied Sciences in the Ostalb Mobil-Verkehrsverbund public transport network. The VVS Stuttgart no longer offers this exemption.
