Deviations in study and examination regulations during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic 2020/21

Statutes on deviations in study and examination regulations during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic 2020 in accordance with § 3 (2) No. 3 GrundO

In a recent decree, the Hessian state government has regulated that the individual standard period of study for all students enrolled in the summer semester 2020 and/or the winter semester 2020/2021 will be extended by one semester in each case. BAföG recipients are thus entitled to funding for one or two additional semesters.

Students who fail a non-repeatable examination (last examination attempt) in this semester or in the summer semester 2021 will be granted one additional examination attempt - unless the failure is due to attempted cheating. Students who have failed such a last examination attempt in the summer semester 2020 may apply for another examination attempt. The application must be submitted to the university by 31.03.2021.
