Notes on processing time
Please note that since the outbreak of the pandemic, more and more enquiries have been received by the Office for Student Financial Aid. In addition, more applications are generally submitted in the winter semester than in the summer semester. The processing time may therefore be delayed. Our team at the BAföG Office is doing everything in its power to process the incoming applications as quickly as possible. We ask for your understanding if there are any delays.
We know that some of you need BAföG funding very urgently in order to finance your studies. However, please try to refrain from enquiring about the processing status of your application, as this costs our administrative staff additional time.
At the beginning of the semester, we offer on-site counselling sessions at the universities. These are published here and via social media.
