If you wish to terminate your studies at the HfMDK or switch to a different place of study, you must de-register. The legal basis for this is Section 11 of the Hessian Enrolment Regulations in the currently valid version.
You can request de-registration using the form below. You will be de-registered at the time requested, or if you do not specify a date, at the end of the current semester. Retroactive de-registration is not possible. After processing your application, you will receive a “de-registration certificate.” This can be submitted to authorities (including as proof for pension insurance ) or to other universities as proof of periods of enrolment.
Should you already have registered for the semester following the semester in which you de-register, you may be eligible for a refund until April 30 for a summer semester fee and until October 31 for a winter semester fee. A partial refund is not possible. To obtain a refund you must return the student documents (enrolment data sheet, study certificates, semester ticket, etc.).
Example: You have already re-registered on February 20 for the following summer semester (beginning on April 1), but in the meantime you have decided not to continue your studies and you therefore apply to de-register at the end of the winter semester (March 31). In this case you can be refunded the semester fee you have already paid for the summer semester if you return all student documents. The request for a refund must be submitted with all the required documents to the Students' Secretariat no later than April 30.
If you do not transfer the semester fee and do not respond to any e-mail reminders or even written requests for re-registration and allow all deadlines (re-registration period and period of grace) to elapse, you will be automatically de-registered. This form of de-registration is called de-registration “ex officio”.
To obtain a certificate of de-registration confirming the period of study you must make a regular request for de-registration.
