Semester dates

All full-time students at GSU have to pay attention to certain dates and deadlines to master their studies successfully. The following overview shall provide you with a basic understanding of the most important dates and deadlines at GSU. 


Students who wish to continue their studies at the German Sport University Cologne must re-register at the end of each lecturing period.

The semester fee for the winter semester 2019/2020 amounts to 273,10 € (see download “payment information”).

The re-registration will only be accepted when the amount is transferred to the exact cent within the re-registration period! Students who miss the deadline (12th July 2019) will be charged a fee of 10 €, a total of 283,10€.

Students who major in a second subject at another university need to hand in a re-registration form (see downloads) as well as a verification of their re-registration (either the confirmation of payment or a certificate of study) at their secondary university of enrollment.

The re-registration can be handed in via fax ( +49 221 4982-8380), mail (studsekretariat@­ or in person at the student registration office within the re-registration period.

Students who complete their studies at the end of the current semester do not have to re-register. If the last exam is not passed for any reason, please contact the student registration office.
