Organizational Matters Renewal of Semester Registration

Procedure and Timing: Doctoral students

You want to be able to make use of material or staff resources in the coming semester as part of your PhD studies? Then you have to be registered. With the re-registration form in self-service you can renew your registration for the next semester. At the same time, you can check and correct your data.

If you are coming toward the end of your PhD and are not sure whether you have to register for the next semester or not, contact the relevant faculty. They will be able to tell you the latest date for registering for the degree.

Would you like to continue your parallel degree program and only complete your main study? You can't make this change by yourself. It's important to contact ZIB ( before processing the re-registration form.

You want to have yourself removed from the student registry because you have completed your PhD or want to interrupt or terminate your PhD? Then apply to be removed from the student registry in self-service, specifying the particular reason. You will then receive a confirmation of removal from the student registry by post.
