Enrollment is your official registration as a student at the University of Mannheim. The team of the International Office is welcoming you!

The enrollment will be done digitally. You will receive all necessary information prior to your enrollment via e-mail.

  • Documents you need to provide before your enrollment

    • Confirmation of membership by your statutory health insurance provider, or a confirmation of release
    • Passport (with valid student visa or residence permit) or ID
    • (Temporary) semester address in Germany
    • Submit application for enrollment

    The above steps need to be done in your Mobility Online workflow.

    • Payment of the semester fee of the Studierendenwerk*
    • Confirmation of disenrollment by a German university if you were previously enrolled at a German university**

    *As soon as we have received your payment the necessary receipt is available to us. You do not need to actively inform us of your payment.

    **In case you have previously been enrolled at a German university before, please send us the disenrollment certificate via e-mail to incomings@uni-mannheim.de.

After you have been enrolled we will send you an enrollment certificate along with your welcome letter that contains your student ID number (“Matrikelnummer”) and information on how to get your ecUM (student ID card).

Then you should read and take care of all “To Dos after Enrollment” we describe on the Portal² Infocockpit.
