The When, Where and What of Your Enrollment

Documenting Your Studies

If you need to document your studies at the University of Bonn for government agencies or institutions, use the following documents.

Current certificate of enrollment

Certificates of enrollment for the current semester can be printed directly from your personal user account in the BASIS portal.

These certificates are verifiable and can hence be checked for authenticity by recognizing bodies.

These certificates are included with the semester documents you receive at the beginning of each semester. As automatically created documents, they are valid without a University seal and may be used for various purposes:

  • A BAföG certificate containing all important data for receiving financial aid based on the German Federal Training Assistance Act.
  • Two certificates of enrollment indicating the degree program(s) and the number of program-related semesters (especially for the Child Benefits Office, your health insurance provider, and the like).
  • Four small certificates of enrollment that simply prove you are enrolled.

If you lose any of these documents, you may request a manual re-issue from the Student Registry free of charge.

A certificate documenting the total period of university enrollment, as required for submission to the Statutory Pension Insurance Fund, may be requested from the Student Registry.

In case your enrollment ended before winter semester 1994/1995, please submit your request to the University Archive.3
