As soon as you disenroll from your program, you are no longer a student of the University of Mannheim. You may either be disenrolled upon request or by virtue of office

Disenrollment Upon Request

If you would like to terminate your enrollment at the University of Mannheim, we recommend that you file a request for disenrollment. Only then can we properly disenroll you from your program and send you the complete disenrollment documents (confirmation of disenrollment, enrollment certificate, confirmation for the statutory pension provider). You can file the request for disenrollment at any time and either submit it to the Express Service in person or send it to Student Services by post.

Disenrollment by Virtue of Office

If you are disenrolled by virtue of office, you will receive an official notification of disenrollment in due time. The notification will be sent to you by post and will list the reasons for your disenrollment. If you do not understand or agree with the disenrollment reasons, please contact the Student Services advisor responsible for you to discuss the matter.

    Information on disenrollment

  • Effectiveness of disenrollment

    As a rule, disenrollment becomes effective at the end of the semester in which it was requested. In case of special reasons, it may become effective immediately. This may be the case if you complete your studies, transfer to another university during the semester, or lose your eligibility to take exams. 

    Please note: Bear in mind that it might be favorable for you to remain enrolled until the semester ends since this entitles you to a low-priced student health insurance plan and your parents may continue to receive child benefit.

  • Disenrollment and examination processes

    Any ongoing examination processes will remain unaffected by disenrollment, meaning that once a student has registered for an exam, the registration will not be revoked upon their disenrollment. Students must also take resit examinations if stipulated by the examination regulations.

    In case you do not wish to complete an ongoing examination process after your disenrollment, you must request dismissal from the exam. Please contact your Student Services advisor to file the request. You may lose your eligibility to take exams if you fail to officially withdraw from an exam. Please fill in the back of the request for disenrollment form to request dismissal from an exam.
