Re-registration

In January and June, all students receive an e-mail from the Student Records Office to their FAU e-mail address with information on the re-registration process and paying the semester fee. The fee must be paid by bank transfer within the deadlines for re-registration at the University, as otherwise you risk being de-registered. Further information on re-registration, semester fee and deadlines are available on our website.
