All students studying at a higher education institution in Germany are required to pay a semester fee. The semester fee for the fall semester 2022/23 charged by the University of Mannheim is EUR 194.30. You need to pay this fee in order to be enrolled or re-registered for the next semester. The semester fee is made up of three separate contributions:
Administration fee: EUR 70
Studierendenwerk fee: EUR 110.30
Fee for the constituted student body: EUR 14
Semester fee for international exchange students
International exchange students are exempted from paying the administration fee due to exchange agreements between the higher education institutions. Moreover, they do not need to pay the fee for the constituted student body. Therefore, international exchange students only pay the Studierendenwerk fee. You will receive an email with account information from the International Office. Kindly note that the account information is different for international exchange students.
Please transfer the semester fee to the bank account of the University of Mannheim indicated below before the re-registration deadline (This does not apply for international exchange students: You will receive an email with account information from the International Office).
As a payment reference, please make sure to indicate your name, student ID number, and the semester for which you wish to enroll or re-register
