Rückmeldeverfahren an der Universität Bielefeld (außer Gasthörer)


Text of email from July 10, 2017  for the Re-enrolment


Dear students,

you are now invited to re-enrol for the winter semester 2017/18  by email. Re-enrolment is done by simply paying the semester fees. Please log into the ekVV – using your Matrikelnummer (student number) and your ekVV password and click on ‚Meine Rückmeldungsdaten’ (my re-enrolment data) in the left menu.

If you are enrolled as a doctoral student either studying for a free doctoral degree or taking part in a structured doctoral program, in addition to paying the semester fee a onetime verification of your data is required for the winter semester 2017/18. The verification can be done via the above-mentioned link as well. Important: Re-enrollment in doctoral degree for the winter semester 2017/18 is only possible after you verified your data.

In order to avoid booking errors, please make use of ‘copy and paste’ (in case of Online-Banking) for copying the bank particulars as well as the ‘Verwendungszweck’. Please make sure that these data are definitely not altered or remarks added (such as numbers, purpose, names).

Should you change the ‘Verwendungszweck’ in any way or leave it out, it would be impossible to book your money automatically. In that case, your re-enrolment for the winter semester 2017 fails. It is thus of utmost importance that you specify the ‘Verwendungszweck’ without any additional remarks (this refers to online transfers as well as to transfers by bank transfer forms). Particular attention should be paid if your semester fees are paid by someone else such as your parents.

After receipt of your semester fees, you will be sent (just as before when you first enroled or at every re-enrolment) an EDP statement with the new "Studienbescheinigung" (certificate of matriculation). If you are using the UniCard, you are able to re-validate the UniCard for the next semester.

The time to re-enrol will end on August 31, 2017. If you transfer your semester fees after that date, a late fee of 10€ becomes payable.

Furthermore, we would like to inform you that students receive the UniCard as a student ID card since 2014. You can use all card-based services of the University (library card, semester ticket, cashless payment at the Studentenwerk, etc.) with the UniCard. So, you will not be receiving a semester stamp, instead you can re-validate your UniCard at the validation machines near the Infopunkt (printing the validity date) to use it as your regional semester ticket. If you do not have a UniCard yet, you can initiate the necessary steps to get your card right away; for further information visit www.uni-bielefeld.de/unicard

Since the summer semester 2015 the NRW semester ticket will not be sent out anymore but has to printed out instead by yourself here: https://www.ots-nrw.de/index.php/ A registration is not needed.

Note: The new campus management system for the student administration will be introduced for the Studierendensekretariat [Student Office] for the summer semester 2018 (The BIS, including the ekVV, the degree information websites and the examination management, is not affected by this change). As part of the change, all student data will be transferred from the current system to the new system. Based on the current planning status, this data migration will be done around the end of November 2017. Due to the data migration, degree changes/leave of absence/etc. have to be completed until November 15, 2017. The ex-matriculation ex officio (usu. ex-matriculation due to non-payment) will already be carried out mid-October. You will receive further information about the new campus management system for the student administration in due course.
