The commissioner and counselor for students with disabilities or chronic illnesses, Alexander Holzer, advises students with disabilities and chronic illnesses on questions regarding compensation for disadvantages in examination performance and supports you in the application process.
Students with disabilities or chronic illnesses who are unable to complete coursework in the required form may submit a request for disadvantage compensation. Generally, the request for disadvantage compensation must be submitted by the end of the exam registration phase, at the latest. Please contact the commissioner and counselor for disabled students and students with chronic illnesses for more information.
The examination committee for your degree program will decide on the request.
Exchange students with disabilities or chronic illnesses who receive a disadvantage compensation for examinations at their home university can also request a disadvantage compensation at the University of Mannheim.
Please submit a signed and stamped confirmation of the disadvantage compensation at your home university by the beginning of the lecture period.
Please notify the commissioner and counselor for disabled students and students with chronic illnesses of any exams you registered for. The commissioner must be notified by the end of the exam registration phase, at the latest. If you notify the commissioner and counselor for disabled students and students with chronic illnesses at a later point in time, your notification cannot be considered. Please submit a notification for all examinations, also for examinations that you may take on the resit examination date.
Please note: We try to offer you the same disadvantage compensation as granted by your home institutions. However, in individual cases this is not possible or only to a certain extent.
