Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin

Withdrawal from the university

Students who intend to withdraw from HU need to submit a written application for withdrawal from a university [PDF]. The earliest date that withdrawal from the university can take effect is the date on which the application is received. You still have the right to take exams after withdrawal from the university.

When you withdraw from the university, you are no longer a student of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and your student benefits expire (such as the semester ticket
for free public transport for one semester resp. Campus-Card).

Information from sections 128-130 of the General Study and Examination Regulations of Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (ZSP-HU).
