Study Service

The central contact point for all matters relating to studying at the Trier location is located on the main campus. You will find the staff of the student service on the ground floor of building G. In our office, students, prospective students and applicants can find all essential services in one place. The offer includes the areas of the Student secretariat, Examination Office and General student counselling. The study service is divided into three work teams, each of which is assigned a specific degree program. This means that students always have permanent contact persons throughout their studies.

The beginning of a pre-registration phase is communicated by e-mail. As a rule, this e-mail is sent in mid-June for the winter semester and in mid-December for the summer semester.   

After a positive examination of the application documents, applicants will receive a request for payment by e-mail.   

If you have any questions about the amount and composition of the semester fee, please contact the staff of the Admision & Student Service Staff .

Gest Students

If there is sufficient capacity in an undergraduate programme, people who wish to continue their education in individual courses may be admitted as guest students upon application.

The prerequisite for continuing your studies and taking part in exams in the following semester is that you re-register within the re-registration deadline.

The re-registration period ends in each case

  • for a summer semester on January 31st
  • for a winter semester on July 31st

To re-register, please transfer the semester fee. If you have credit balances (these have been offset) from overpayments from previous semesters, the individual transfer amount will be displayed in the StudIS portal in the “My Studies - Study Service” area under the “Payments” tab. You can access the portal at the following address:


The amount of the contribution mentioned here only applies to the re-registration of students who are already enrolled and is made up as follows:

  • Student union: 129.00 euros
  • AStA: 16.00 euros
  • Semester ticket: 176.40 euros

The semester fee for the winter semester 2024/2025 is 321.40 euros.

From March 1st, 2024 on the semester ticket includes the Deutschlandticket for students! Further information on this: Studierendenwerk .

The contribution must be transferred to the following bank details:

Recipient: LHK Mainz / Trier University of Applied Sciences
IBAN: DE36545100670009583675 / BIC: PBNKDEFF
Bank: Postbank Ludwigshafen
Purpose: <Your matriculation number> <Surname, first name> <Degree program>

Please make the transfer in good time so that the required student contribution is transfered on the forementioned account by the end of the re-registration deadline!

We recommend making the transfer or cash deposit at a bank based in Germany, as in the past there have been delays in posting foreign transfers.

Be sure to include your matriculation number, first and last name and the course of study in the intended purpose. If this information is not clearly identifiable, feedback cannot be given.

After receipt of the student contribution on the forementioned account at the Postbank Ludwigshafen (usually 5 – 7 working days after your transfer) we will implement the re-registration. Validation can only be carried out by you once payment has been received and re-registration is executed, i.e. at the earliest 5 - 7 working days after your transfer. The validation machines are located in building G (in the passage to building H) at Schneidershof and in building Q (on the ground floor in front of room Q11) at Irminenfreihof. The machines are in operation Monday to Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.


If you intend to take a leave of absence for the coming semester, a formal application is required, stating the reason and providing relevant evidence. Applications for leave of absence must be submitted by the end of the re-registration period.

If you no longer intend to continue your studies at Trier University of Applied Sciences in the coming semester (exmatriculation), we ask you to submit the corresponding formal application for exmatriculation by the end of the semester at the latest:

  • for a summer semester on August 31st
  • for a winter semester on February 28th or 29th

The re-registration can only be canceled until the start of the semester. To do this, applications for de-registration and repayment must be received by the study service on time:

  • for a summer semester on August 31st
  • for a winter semester on February 28th or 29th

In this case, please contact us as soon as possible. Another requirement for repayment is the return of the student ID card.

You can find all forms on our homepage and in the StudIS portal in the “My Studies – Study Service” section under the notices/certificates register. If you lose your right to take the exam due to ultimately failing the exam, re-registration is no longer possible.

If you are subject to fees (tuition fees of €700), you can only re-register after receipt of the required tuition fee and student contribution.


Late re-registrations will only be accepted upon payment of a late fee of 25.00 euros by the start of the semester at the latest:

  • for a summer semester on March 1st
  • for a winter semester on September 1st

Students can be temporarily absent from their studies if they submit a written application and provide proof of an important reason. The application for exeat must be filed within the deadline for re-registration for the respective semester at the Study Service of the Trier University of Applied Sciences. A retroactive exeat does not take place. Exceptions are only possible in the case of sudden and unexpected events occurring within four weeks of the beginning of the semester.

Reasons for exeat are in particular:

  • An extended period of illness of the student which prevents proper study in the semester in which the course is taking place
  • Care of a relative who is ill or otherwise in need of help as well as a partner who does not permit orderly studying in the semester in question, in particular as a result of the overwhelming personal presence of the person to be cared for as a result of the care
  • Internships, unless required by an examination regulation 
  • A study visit abroad or the completion of a practical work experience abroad to study. 
  • Periods of pregnancy or maternity of a child
  • Financing the studies
  • Activity under the Federal Voluntary Service Act (BFDG) 
  • Cases of other particular social hardship

An exeat to prepare for a final examination, Bachelor's or Master's thesis, etc. is excluded.

Change of study or double programme/ master enrolment

A change of course or the transition to a Master's course is basically a change of enrolment.  A change of enrolment can only be made upon request during the application/enrolment deadlines.

You must submit your application via  Studis-Portal . Detailed instructions can be found here.



The application for de-registration can be made at any time. It takes effect at the end of the de-registration semester if no other date is applied. A retroactive cancellation of the enrolment upon application is inadmissible. The application for de-registration on the date of application takes effect from the following day of receipt of the application at the Trier University of Applied Sciences.
