The assessment period for the BAföG certificate depends on the time at which your application is received by the Office for Educational Support (BAföG Office). If the application is received from 01.04. to 31.07. in the Summer semester or from 01.10. to 31.01. in the Winter semester, the performance level of the previous 3rd semester must be certified. If the application is received from 01.08. to 30.09. or from 01.02. to 31.03., the performance level of the current 4th semester must be certified.
