Information about contributions and fees

If you want to enroll, or are already enrolled and want to continue your studies at Philipps-Universität Marburg (re-registration), you have to pay a so-called semester fee, the breakdown for which is shown in the following table. Fees are charged among other things for duplicate copies of documents and for guest auditors (see below).

However, the final amount of the semester fee is usually determined for a summer semester between mid-January and mid-February. By paying the provisional contribution and providing proof thereof, the application can be completed and enrollment can be carried out. If the actual contribution amount turns out to be lower or higher, you can check in the MARVIN portal via "My Studies" - "Study Services" - "Payments" whether there is still an outstanding claim or a credit balance. Any credit balance will be offset against the coming semester, any amount still outstanding must be paid subsequently.

** The administrative fee is charged for services relating to enrollment, leave of absence, re-registration and de-registration, for general student counseling, as well as for services provided by the international offices and for arranging internships. It is governed by §56 “Hesse State Universities Act,” which you can review in German on this page: “Rechtsgrundlagen” (legal basis).



On your bank transfer to pay for re-registration, it is absolutely required that you state your student number (Matrikelnummer) and your name!

Newly enrolling students should state their first and last names in the memo field.

Foreign students can be exempted from the administrative fee if international or supranational agreements and interuniversity agreements guarantee exemption from duties. This applies to students who are studying at Marburg through exchange programs. They will pay a fee reduced by €50.00 (= contribution to administrative costs).

If you re-register late, a late fee (see below) must also be paid.
