The Admissions Office is responsible for all the administrative functions regarding your degree course, and can answer questions regarding your admission eligibility and your application. It also processes restricted admission degree applications, and is responsible for enrollment and de-registering later.
Semester fees are also processed by the staff of the Admissions Office, as well as re-registration and any changes to students' personal information (e.g. names and addresses). Requests for leave or part-time study should also be submitted here.
Students who have re-registered for the current semester and new students who have paid their semester fee after enrollment can print out their Semester Enrollment Certificates and BAFöG Certificates (in accordance with §9 BAFöG – Federal Training Assistance Act) via the student management account.
You can find a short guide here.

Since January 1, 2018 the Maternity Protection Act also applies to university students as far as place, time and schedule of a training course are compulsory and predefined or completion of an internship is a mandatory part of their studies. This means that, as a matter of principle and without any application being necessary, pregnant students are entitled to maternity protection. During this time a relative prohibition regarding participation in exams applies: In the last six weeks before the projected birth and eight weeks after child birth they retain the right not to sit any exams. They are also entitled to request exemption from lectures with compulsory attendance, excursions as well as any laboratory work or internships. (During the first 12 months after child birth) Pregnant women or breastfeeding mothers are also not allowed to work between 10 pm and 6 am as well as on Sundays and public holidays. Students, however, can waive these rights during their maternity protection period (also after child birth). In this case, they have to expressly declare this (in writing!) to the Admissions Office/Examination Committee. This declaration, however, can be revoked at any time.
Hochschule Geisenheim must complete a risk assessment for pregnant students - as well as pregnant employees – once the student has informed the university of her pregnancy. Based on an assessment form it will be determined whether the pregnant student is exposed to any influences harmful to health and whether any protective measures (e.g. alternative performance/achievements) will have to be taken during pregnancy or breastfeeding period without this being disadvantageous to the student.
In order for Hochschule Geisenheim to be able to comply with the provisions as stipulated by the Maternity Protection Act, all students are recommended to inform the Admissions Office about their pregnancy and the projected date of birth as soon as they know about them. There is no obligation to do so. If students, however, do not inform the university about their pregnancy, they voluntarily refrain from making use of any measures as provided by the Maternity Protection Act.
