Rematriculation

If you wish to continue your studies in the next semester, you need to rematriculate with the Student Service Center

Rematriculation deadline

  • for the summer semester: January 15
  • for the winter semester July 1

Please note that your semester fee and any tuition fee must be transferred to the account of Mainz University by the deadlines listed above. The date on which your payment is credited to the university account will determine whether you have met the deadline. Please take into account the time your bank will require to process the transfer.
Of course, you can also transfer the semester fee prior to this deadline.

The semester fee for the Winter semester 2017/18  is €309.89 (Mainz) or €125.13 (only for students of Faculty 06 in Germersheim).

Students who are required to pay tuition fees must also pay €650 per program and semester.

Procedure

Please rematriculate by paying your semester fee (and any necessary tuition fee) by bank transfer. You do not need to additionally notify the Student Service Center. Please make the transfer by means of online banking or using a standard bank transfer form.

What to do, if...?

...you are switching from a Bachelor of Education (B.Ed.) program to a Master of Education (M.Ed.) program...

You must ensure that your semester fee is paid punctually, as the changeover from B. Ed. at JGU to M. Ed. at JGU is equivalent to a change of subject. Such a change can only be processed after the semester fee has been paid. Should this not be paid by the deadline, you will be required to pay a late payment fee in addition to your semester fee.

... you have acquired all qualifications required for a Bachelor's degree but wish to switch to a Master’s degree program with restricted admission...

If you want to switch to a Master’s degree program with restricted admission and will have acquired all the necessary qualifications for a Bachelor's degree in the current semester (i.e. by March 31 in the winter semester and September 30 in the summer semester), you should first not rematriculate and only pay the semester fee after you have been admitted to the Master's degree program. A late payment fee will not be charged in this case.

... you have acquired all the qualifications required for a Bachelor's degree but are switching to a Master’s degree program without restricted admission...

Simply rematriculate by the deadline for the subsequent semester if you will have acquired all the necessary qualifications for a Bachelor's degree in the current semester (i.e. by March 31 in the winter semester and September 30 in the summer semester) and wish to switch to a Master’s degree program without restricted admission.

...you still need to acquire qualifications for a Bachelor's degree in an ongoing semester of a Master's degree program...

Rematriculate by the deadline for the subsequent semester if you fail to complete your Bachelor's degree by the end of the winter semester (March 31) or the end of the summer semester (September 30) and you still need to acquire qualifications for your Bachelor's degree over the course of the first Master’s degree semester, even if this only takes the form of an exam.

... you have completed all required examinations in your degree program but the assessments are still outstanding... Can I rematriculate for the subsequent semester in this case?

If you have already completed all required examinations in your degree program, you will not be able to rematriculate for the same program. Please note that any adjustment periods following completion of the last course examination are not sufficient reason for rematriculation for the subsequent semester.

... you have not rematriculated for the subsequent semester and have received a notification that you have failed an exam. Is rematriculation in the same degree program possible due to failure to pass an examination?

Yes, rematriculation in the same degree program is also possible in an ongoing semester if you submit a written informal application for rematriculation to the Student Service Center within six weeks at the latest of being notified of failure to pass an examination (exclusion period). You will then be enrolled for the entire semester.

... you have missed the rematriculation deadline, i.e. the semester fee was not paid or not paid in full by the deadline (i.e. January 15 for the summer semester and July for the winter semester) to the account of JGU?

You will be notified that you have automatically been removed from the register of students. You have 1 month from receipt of this notification in which to lodge an objection. In this case, you will also be required to transfer a late payment fee of €21 to the same account to cover the additional costs of administrative processing.

... you wish to lodge an objection to a notification of removal from the register of students due to failure to meet the rematriculation deadline?

To lodge an objection, you will need to transfer the late payment fee of €21 and any other outstanding payments within 1 month of receipt of the notification.

... you fail to rematriculate by deadline? Should I pay the late payment fee at once or wait until I receive a notification of my removal from the register of students?

We would recommend transferring the late payment fee including any other outstanding fees at once. In this way, you may be able to avoid the issue of the notification of removal from the register of students and will receive your certificate of enrollment without undue delay. Of course, you can also wait until you receive your notification of removal from the register of students; you will have 1 month to pay any outstanding fees. This means you will receive your certificate of enrollment at a correspondingly later date.

...you have just completed the German language course or a course at the preparatory college and have applied to study at university? Will I be required to pay a late payment fee?

If you are admitted to a degree course you will only have to pay the semester fee without having to pay a late payment fee.

... you will become liable to pay a tuition fee in the subsequent semester? Will I be required to pay a late payment fee?

If you have paid the semester fee on time but will be liable to pay a tuition fee in the subsequent semester but have received the tuition fee notification for the first time, you will NOT have to pay a late payment fee, but must merely pay the tuition fee by the deadline specified in the notification.

... you are not sure whether you have already paid the fee?

First check your bank statement. If you will not have access to your bank statements in the foreseeable future, please contact the Student Service Center personally by e-mail or call the hot line.

... you need a certificate showing you have paid semester fees for the tax authorities?

As confirmation that you paid semester fees, the tax authorities will accept your certificate of enrollment and bank statements for your private account. Should you not have either of these, you will find a PDF document here List of semester fees showing an overview of fees for recent semesters; you can submit this together with your master data sheet (evidence of enrollment) to the tax authorities.

... you wish to have the semester fee or tuition fee reimbursed?

Any semester or tuition fee you have already paid can only be reimbursed after you have applied for removal from the register of students in the first 4 weeks of the relevant semester (to October 31 or April 30).

You will only be eligible for reimbursement of a tuition fee if you have undertaken no related academic work (e.g. module examination, submission of a Bachelor's thesis or oral exam for the Master's thesis) in the current semester.

Please send the following completed  Form for the reimbursement of the semester fee or tuition fee by mail or submit it in person to the Student Service Center. Processing of your application will take 4 to 6 weeks.

[Please note: The reimbursement application form is provided as a PDF. Please enter the necessary details using a computer and then send us the printout of the form by mail.]
