Please get in touch with us if you have any questions:
The most important things first:
- You need to get to know your course and examination regulations (StuPo) (PDF). Generally, the one which applies to you is the one which was most up-to-date when you enrolled at THU. Unless, of course, you've agreed a change of course and examination regulations with your department.
- Official documents and information will be sent to your Ulm University of Applied Sciences e-mail address. Please check your inbox regularly.
- The student portal is your first port of call for many functions and applications. You can only reach it from campus or via a VPN.
Regulations and guidelines relevant for your degree program
The course and examination regulations (SPO) describe the structure of the course and define the framework conditions for examinations. You are expected to know the requirements it specifies for your degree program. You can find the appropriate course and examination regulations and all the regulations and guidelines relevant to your degree program online.
Already enrolled students will find other important documentation on the President's Office webpage on the intranet.
Registration for classes
It is only in the basic study period that you are registered for classes and examinations completely automatically.
From the main study period on, and if you are doing a Master's, you are permitted to deviate from the specified semester plans.
Although you are currently automatically registered for all mandatory classes (in your respective taught semester) in the main study period or for your master's degree program, it is your responsibility to check that these are correct and, in addition, you must register yourself for elective subjects, extra subjects and alternative classes. The automatic booking of compulsory subjects runs until one week before lectures start. In contrast to the basic study period, here you have the chance to deregister from classes (deadline: two weeks after the start of lectures at the latest).
It is important that you re-register on time and that the file shows the correct taught semester! Otherwise, the automated pre-allocation will not work.
You must register for classes via LSF (online system for planning and allocating classes – and for deregistering from examinations). Find more details here.
Re-registration in the next semester
If you are already enrolled at Ulm University of Applied Sciences and wish to continue your studies in the next semester, you need to re-register before the deadline. You re-register by submitting an application to re-register, as well as by paying the semester fees and course fees by bank transfer. To do this, please log in to the student portal. There you'll find the form for re-registration in the Online Applications (Online Anträge) section. The "make an application" button is located on the lower left. Please don't forget to send off your application when you've finished filling it out.
Please note: For security reasons, our new campus management system can only be accessed via the THU network. If you wish to access the THU network from outside, you'll need to set up a VPN connection first. You can find instructions for setting up a VPN connection here.
You can find out more about fees here.

A certificate of removal from the register of students will only be issued after the fees and charges associated with the degree course have been paid.

The relevant offices are listed on the certificate of exoneration form. Please submit the completed certificate of exoneration to your department office (for Bachelor's students) or to the SSC Master's Programs office (for Master's students).
