After Enrollment

After you have sent your "Registration for Enrollment” and your complete set of documents required for enrollment to the ­Admissions Department, they will be checked. If your documents are complete, you will receive a provisional certificate of enrollment with further information.

With your provisional enrollment certificate you will also receive information about our new game for the start of your studies - StartSmart! Play along and get lots of information and insights into studying at TU Dortmund University.

Welcome Event "Come2Campus"

All ­students must pay the social contribution fee for each semester. This social contribution is not a tuition fee and generally payable by all students, regardless of when they enroll.

Upon receipt of your provisional certificate of enrollment, you will receive a request for payment of the social contribution. Please do not transfer the social contribution until you have received your provisional certificate of enrollment.

Before the beginning of the next semester, registered students will be notified to re-register for the next semester. You can find information on re-registering on these sites as well.
