Students wishing to enrol or re-register at Saarland University have to pay student services fees, an administrative charge and, in some cases, additional fees. These fees are payable in addition to any tuition fees that you may have to pay for your chosen course of study and any fees payable to the Students' Union Executive Committee (AStA). Please note that you can only be enrolled or re-registered after we have received all due fees.

Semester fee

All students currently pay a semester fee, which includes the student services fee, the administrative charge and the Students' Union fee. The semester fee also covers the cost of the semester travel ticket.

Amount of the semester fee

Tuition fees

If you are studying for a first degree or you are on a consecutive Master's degree programme, there are no tuition fees, but you will need to pay the normal semester fee (see above).

Non-enrolled students (Gasthörer)

The fees paid by non-enrolled students depend on the number of hours per week studied and range from €81.30 to €156.30 per semester. The amount payable is set out in the application form.

Senior citizen students

Senior citizen students (55 years of age or older) must also pay an additional fee of €400 per semester.

Cross-enrolled students (Zweithörer)

Cross-enrolled students pay €313,65 per semester (€63,65 student services fee + €50 administrative charge + €200 additional fee). The semester travel ticket is not included in this case. If you want to be issued with a semester travel ticket, you will need to pay an extra €133,00. Cross-enrolled students from universities within the Universitätsverbund Südwest (South-West University Alliance are eept and do not have to pay the normal cross-enrolment fees.
