Re-enrolment

 

As a university student, you have to pay the tuition fee/Students' Union fee every semester within the payment period or period of grace in order to continue your studies. The payment triggers the re-enrolment in your degree programme for the next semester.

Once the re-enrolment has been successful, you can print your student documents of the respective semester (student record sheet, confirmation of enrolment) in u:space > Personal matters > My documents and validate your u:card.

 

Payment at the University of Vienna

 

In order to continue your studies at the University of Vienna, please note the following:

  • The prescribed amount has to be payed within the payment period, at the latest within the period of grace (in the period of grace, the tuition fee may increase by 10% depending on the citizenship, but the Students' Union fee stays the same).
  • The prescribed amount must be paid at once, it is not possible to pay by instalments. It consists of the Students' Union fee + tuition fee, if needed (= total amount indicated in u:space).
  • It may take up to seven days until the payment is received. Therefore, please pay in time (= a few days before the deadline)!

As soon as the prescribed fee is received in u:space > Financial matters > Tuition fee/Students' Union fee, the re-enrolment has been carried out. The status in u:space > Studies > Study overview shows "admitted" to the next semester. Please check both!

 

Payment at a different Austrian university - re-enrolment at the University of Vienna

 

In case you have paid the fee at a different Austrian university, you are automatically re-enrolled in your studies at the University of Vienna. If you do not want this to happen, you have to withdraw from your degree programme(s). 

Important note:

  • If you have to pay the tuition fee at one university, but only the Students' Union fee at another, you must pay the whole amount at the first university! The payment of the Students' Union fee is then reported to the other university.
  • Do not pay the tuition fee at one university and the Students' Union fee at another! This way, the re-enrolment does not become effective at any university.
  • Please note that payment periods and amounts may vary between different universities.

Keep in mind that you are not automatically re-enrolled when paying the fee at a university of applied sciences (FH) or a private university. You will also have to pay the tuition fee/Students' Union fee at the University of Vienna (you can get your Students' Union fee refunded by the Austrian Students' Union - ÖH).
