Letter of Admission

  • After successful admission, your Letter of Acceptance will be uploaded to JOGU-StINe, where you can download and print it at "Application">"Documents">"My Documents".
  • The letters of admission are verified and thus also valid for the German authorities at home and abroad. Your letter of admission is an official confirmation that you can study at the JGU.
  • The letters of admission are uploaded from mid-July to mid-September for the winter semester and from mid-January to mid-March for the summer semester.

IMPORTANT: You must download and save this official letter of admission in time as long as your applicant account is still active. Storage on an external medium is recommended. You will also need your letter of admission in order to enroll at JGU.


The day on which you need to enrol personally here in Mainz will be announced in your letter of admission.

Usually, matriculation takes place as part of the InfoDays for exchange students.

If you are unable to meet the deadline for enrolment stated in your admission letter, please send us an e-mail.
