Student status at the university ends upon exmatriculation. All students can apply for exmatriculation at the Registration Office. After applying for exmatriculation, the student receives a de-registration certificate. As a rule, exmatriculation goes into effect at the end of the semester. Students who wish to leave the university earlier must apply for exmatriculation during the registration period in the Registration Office.

Note to students who are currently in an examination phase:
Although exmatriculation means the end of your membership at the university, it does not absolve you of your responsibilities during an examination phase (more information, page 2). That means that regardless as to whether you have exmatriculated or not, you must complete any exams you have started. The examination phase only ends after the exam has been taken. The examination office is responsible for answering any questions about examination rights. The addresses of the examination offices can be found at the respective faculties/deaneries.

You can obtain an application form for exmatriculation at the Registration Office or print out a PDF.
