Call for re-registration, automatic re-registration and re-registration lock

Call for re-registration:
You will receive your personal re-registration request by e-mail to your UdK-Webmailer-Account.

Automatic re-registration:
Re-registration is automatically completed if the payment of the semester fee has been received and booked on the account of the Berlin University of the Arts within the above-mentioned deadline.
The date of the value date on the UdK Berlin account is important for the timely payment of the fees. Therefore, please make sure that you pay your fees early.
You can view the receipt of payment and your re-registration status in the campus management portal my.udk.
Once you have re-registered, you must update your CampusCard at a validator at the UdK Berlin. You do not need a new QR code for this. Information on the locations of the validators and how the update works can be found on the information pages of the CampusCard.

Re-registration lock:
If the Enrolment and Examination Office (IPA) is still missing documents from you (proof of language proficiency, health insurance, certificates, etc.), you can see this on the basis of the re-registration blocks stored in the campus management portal my.udk, including a note on what needs to be done. Please also submit these as early as possible within the re-registration deadlines in the IPA. If you have any problems submitting them on time, please contact your IPA administrator immediately.

Re-regisrtration in the grace period:
In the case of re-registration during the grace period, timely re-registration by the beginning of the semester cannot be guaranteed.
Accordingly, the University of the Arts accepts no liability for any consequential costs that may arise. If you have not submitted a re-registration application by the end of the grace period, exmatriculation will follow ex officio. Please note that the processing of the re-registration can take up to 4 weeks.

Exmatriculation ex officio:
If your re-registration is not completed by the end of the re-registration period incl. grace period, an "exmatriculation ex officio" will take place retroactively to the last semester end (31 March or 30 September).

Students who have already successfully passed their final exams in the current semester cannot re-register for the coming semester. If you are only waiting for the results of your final examination, do not re-register (§30 Abs. 6 BerlHG).

Leave of absence

If you are unable to complete coursework and examinations in a semester (this also applies to participation in courses), then you must apply for a semester off. You can find the application in the Form Center under General Forms.
An approved leave of absence does not release you from the re-registration fee.
Please submit the application within the re-registration period with the relevant evidence to the person responsible for you in the Admissions Office (IPA) (by e-mail or post).

Please note:

  1. In certain cases, exemption from the social contribution (see above) is possible.

If you are unable to study full-time for professional, health or family reasons, for example, you have the option of studying part-time. The application must be submitted within the re-registration deadlines.
When submitting the application, you do not have to give a reason or submit any proof.

Please note that if you apply to study part-time at less than 50%, you are no longer entitled to the Deutschlandsemesterticket.

The Admissions Office (IPA), to whom the part-time application must be sent by e-mail or post, will inform the degree programme about the application and, if necessary, the programme will agree on a study plan with the student (important for individual lessons and teaching assignments in the degree programmes). It is therefore advisable to agree on an appropriate study plan with the degree programme before submitting the application and to attach it to the application.

Note 3:
Students who require a visa for their stay in Germany should clarify with the Berlin State Office for Immigration, if possible before applying for part-time study at the UdK, whether their reason for part-time study is sufficient so that the existing visa does not expire. It is recommended to get this in writing.

The State Office for Immigration ("Landesamt für Einwanderung") is authorised to find out the reason for the desired part-time study and to obtain proof of this.
Please note: The change in your scope of study per semester (part-time study) must be reported to the State Office for Immigration. The UdK cannot guarantee that your visa will remain valid after changing the scope of your studies.

You can find the application for part-time studies in the Form Centre. The application must be submitted in writing (by e-mail or post) to the person responsible for you at the Admisssions Office (IPA) as early as possible within the re-registration deadlines.

Obligation to register with the "Bürgeramt" (Citizens' Registration Office)

Legal Basis:

"In accordance with § 10 para. 6 no. 1a BerlHG, you are required to submit a copy of a valid identity card or a current certificate of registration once [for the first re-registration] (except for students in secondary or doctoral programmes). If this identity card or the current registration certificate does not show an address in the catchment area of the University of the Arts (this is the area of the federal states of Berlin or Brandenburg), I am obliged to inform you that violations of the obligation to register are subject to fines according to the Federal Registration Act. The presentation of the identity card or the registration certificate and the registration in the catchment area of the Universität der Künste do not constitute a prerequisite for re-registration."

Please note that for the first re-registration we must receive a certificate of registration or a copy of your identity card from you by e-mail, in which a Berlin or Brandenburg registration address can be seen. This also applies to exchange students who are enrolled at the UdK for one semester.

Please send this document by e-mail to the responsible person at the IPA.
