I have already transferred the fees for re-registration, but I can neither validate my Campus Card nor print the certificate of enrolment for the upcoming semester. AGNES still says that I have not re-registered for the upcoming semester. How should I proceed?


If you still see in AGNES that you have not re-registered after paying your re-registration fees (please note bank processing times), please check whether

  1. there is still a difference to be paid,
  2. whether you have entered the data for the transfer of the amount correctly (on the basis of your bank statement) and
  3. whether any documents/evidences are still required for your re-registration (this information will be shown to you under the menu item "Re-registration information" in the AGNES portal after you have logged in with your student HU account).


I do not require the semester ticket in the upcoming semester. Can I opt it out?


The use of the semester ticket is generally mandatory. Only the following groups of students are entitled to be exempted from the semester ticket:

  1. Students who exercise their membership rights at another university (main students at another university in Berlin or Brandenburg).
  2. Disabled people who are entitled to free public transport and can prove this.
  3. Students who can prove with a medical certificate that they cannot use local public transport due to a disability or illness.
  4. Students who are staying outside the Berlin ABC tariff zone for at least three months due to their studies, a practical semester, a semester abroad or as a part of their final thesis.

If one of the above reasons applies to you, you can submit an informal application for exemption from the semester ticket with appropriate proof of the reason to the enrolment office by the end of the main re-registration period (by post or electronically using the e-mail contact form at

After your application has been approved, you will see the reduced fee for re-registration under "Re-registration information" in AGNES ( If you have already paid a higher amount, you can submit an informal application for a refund to the enrolment office, stating your account details (also possible by the contact form). Please note that the processing time of reimbursement can take up to 10 weeks.

An exemption from the semester ticket or a refund for the period in the past is not possible. For the decision on exemption or reimbursement of the semester ticket, is important the day on which the application for reimbursement was received by the enrolment office and on which day the Campus Card was validated. Students who are re-registering must have submitted their full application for exemption from the semester ticket at the enrolment office by the end of the main re-registration period for the upcoming semester; for students who enroll, on the date of enrolment at the latest.

In the following cases, students have no entitlement and are excluded from using the semester ticket:

  1. Students who are on a semester of leave or who are studying in part-time to the extent of less than 50 %.
  2. PhD students
  3. Students in distance learning courses (currently only M.A. LIS).
  4. Students who are enrolled in a supplementary postgraduate course.
  5. Students enrolled in postgraduate, supplementary, extension, additional and certificate studies.


I have already submitted my thesis or will probably complete my studies by the end of the semester. Do I still have to re-register?


Please contact the responsible examination office and clarify whether re-registration is necessary in your case. As a missing re-registration will result in de-registration and, depending on the number of semesters already completed, re-enrolment in the same degree program is generally not possible, you should think about this decision very carefully.


I submitted my PhD thesis. The defense will probably take place in the upcoming semester. Do I have to re-register for the next semester?


Please contact the PhD office of your faculty and clarify whether the enrolment is necessary to defend your thesis and proceed accordingly. If the regular processing time for your doctorate has expired, you have submitted your thesis and you need to be enrolled in the upcoming semester, ask the PhD office to inform the enrolment office about this. After the enrolment office has received the confirmation from the PhD office and your payment of the semester fee , we will re-register you.


I want to change my course of study. Do I have to re-register or can I pay the semester fee during the enrolment process?


If you are sure that you would like to remain enrolled at HU (with an old or a new subject), please re-register.

If you want to leave HU in case of rejection for the new subject, please do not re-register. You will then be de-registered at the end of the semester (31 March or 30 September).

Alternatively, you can apply for de-registration if you e.g. need the certificate of de-registration for another university before the end of the semester. If you do not re-register, you will receive a request to transfer the semester fee during the enrolment process if you are admitted to the new course.


I re-registered and was de-registered. Can I get a refund?


If you were de-registered after you have re-registered, you may be able to receive a partial refund of the semester fee once you have returned your Campus Card. In order to check it for your individual case, please submit an informal application for reimbursement to the enrolment office and enclose your Campus Card. Please note that a refund for the period in the past is not possible.
