The registration applies for the entire length of the course (see the terms and conditions on the back of the enrolment contract). This means that students who enrol are obligated to pay the tuition fees regularly during the entire length of the course. The tuition fees are to be paid either twice a year in advance or on a monthly basis. Monthly payments are only permitted if payment is made by SEPA direct debit mandate.

Tuition fee reimbursement

Students in the Professional College (FAK) are entitled to receive reimbursement of the tuition fees from public funds, provided they do not receive any other tuition fee reimbursement from the government (Tuition Fee Reimbursement in accordance with Art. 47 of the Bavarian School Funding Act in conjunction with § 22 AVBaySchFG). Currently this reimbursement amounts to €100 per month of instruction. (Financial aid received under the auspices of the German Federal Training Assistance Act – BAföG – has no bearing on tuition fee reimbursement.)

This reimbursement is credited to the tuition fees by the SDI and is already reflected in the amounts listed in the table above. 

Method of payment

The semi-annual tuition fee payments are due in September and March. Payment is to be made by bank transfer. Monthly payments are only allowed if payment is made by SEPA direct debit mandate. New students are required to pay the registration fee with the first payment in September.

The student union dues are to be paid in September for the winter semester and in March for the summer semester.

The semi-annual tuition fee amounts and payment deadlines are as follows:

  • Winter term: monthly fee x 6, due in the middle of September
  • Summer term: monthly fee x 6, due at the beginning of March

Please indicate on the registration form whether payment will be made monthly or in two semi-annual instalments.
