Semester Ticket Cancellation and Reimbursement[]

In principle, a refund of the semester ticket fee is not possible. The ticket is financed on a solidarity basis. As an individual, a comparable ticket costs more than 3,000 € per year. However, exceptions for reimbursement are regulated by the statutes of the AStA.

On request to the AStA, the following persons may receive a refund of the fee for the local and the national semester ticket:

  • Severely disabled persons who are in possession of a pass for free public transport (with supplement and token from the pension office),
  • students who cannot use public transport due to their disability and who provide appropriate proof of this,
  • students in an online study programme,
  • students who are on leave of absence due to studies abroad, federal voluntary service, a properly excluded illness - or for other purposes,
  • students who demonstrably spend more than 15 weeks continuously at an institution outside the area of validity of the regional semester ticket; permissible purposes are student exchange programs, internships, final and doctoral theses,
  • students who are also enrolled at another university or academy in Schleswig-Holstein and who have already paid in full the fees payable there in accordance with the fees regulations, including the portion of fees payable for the state-wide semester ticket.

Exceptions must be applied for in writing to the AStA by the end of the first month of the semester using the appropriate form!
