Dear Co-Students,

The Department of Ecology and Environmental Protection is currently in
exchange with the HU Student Services, the Semesterticket Büro and the
Department of Finance to work out a solution that is as unbureaucratic
as possible, internal to the HU and compliant with data protection laws.
The reimbursement (per month of EUR23.30, i.e. a total of up to EUR69.90
for three months) by the VBB is planned for October 2022. The sum cannot
be paid out by Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin before then.
More detailed information on how to apply for a refund via AGNES will be
sent to you during the semester break in a joint newsletter from the
Student Council and the Department of Student Service, which organizes
the processing of the refunds. In addition, we will publish updates
regularly on this website.
We would like to ask for your patience. You do *not* need to apply for a
partial refund of your s emester ticket in advance by sending an email
to the Student Service Department and/or the Semester Ticket Office. We
thank you for not sending us individual requests, but for informing
yourself via the homepage.
Should you leave the HU (prematurely) within the summer semester 2022
(exmatriculation, etc.), your application for exmatriculation will also
be considered as an application for a refund in connection with the 9EUR
ticket. You will also receive a refund of
up to EUR69.90 in October 2022 at the earliest to the account from which
you paid the fees for the summer semester 2022.

Best regards,
Referat for Ecology and Environmental Protection

Delays in subsidy payment

Dear applicants, due to technical issues the payment of the SoSe 22 subsidies for HU will be delayed. We were expecting them to be paid out this week, now it will likely be another 1-2 weeks. We apologise, and appreciate your patience!

No counselling on Wednesday, 13th of July

This Wednesday, the 13th of July, we won’t be able to offer phone counselling, because we’ll be busy with the notifications for your summer semester applications.

(This also means that you’ll soon have those notifications in your mailbox.
In case your bank account has changed since your application, please tell us the new details so any granted subsidies may find their way to your account. :))

Estimation about subsidy-payouts summer semester ’22

Dear applicants,

we expect to send the notifications about your summer semester 2022 applications around mid July, and the corresponding payouts probably around end of July.
In case your bank account has changed since your applications, please tell us the new information soon, so the granted subsidies will be transferred to your new account.
We estimate that the granted subsidies will be transferred around end of July until mid August.

But those are preliminary estimations!
As soon as we send out the notifications and payouts, we’ll let you now in an update here.
Please for now refrain from inquiries about the the state of the applications, notifications or payouts.

In case you can’t pay the next re-enrollment fee without the subsidy, you can contact the enrollment office and ask for an extension the the deadline.

New forms online

Dear applicants, the application forms for winter semester 2022/23 are finally online – you can find them here. Please make sure to send them in by 31. July (plus 14 days grace period).

KHB WiSe 21/22

We finally finished processing the applications for WiSe 21/22 from KHB students and will send out the notifications early next week. The payments still need to go through several departments, but we expect them to be in your accounts by the end of the month at the latest.

Subsidies for summer semester might still be a little behind our usual schedule, but we should have caught up after that.

Payments WiSe 21/22, delayed responses to mails, KHB

Dear applicants, here are a few infos regarding the current state of your applications:

Payments WiSe 21/22

We sent the subsidies for WiSe 21/22 to the Kasse this week, so if nothing goes wrong you should receive the money around next week. If you applied after the regular application period (e.g. due to being newly matriculated), your application will be processed and the subsidy paid out in the coming weeks.

Delayed responses to e-mails

Due to receiving a lot of e-mails and post at the end of the application period, combined with a staff shortage, we are currently very behind on answering e-mails and hard to reach via phone. Please refrain from any non-essential questions (e.g. whether we received your application) for the next 1-2 weeks, in order to give us a chance to check all the mails that are already there and enter all applications into our database. Thank you!

State of WiSe 21/22 applications for KHB

The subsidies for SoSe 21 should have been paid by now. Since that took so much longer than it should have, and we are currently short on staff, the payments for WiSe 21/22 will also be delayed a little, but we’re working on it and hope to send out the notifications by the end of April. Hopefully from next semester on we’ll then be able to get back to our usual rhythm. Thank you for your patience!

HU winter semester 21/22 notifications are on the way

We did it, the notifications for winter semester 21/22 applications at HU will be sent out this week!
You should receive them until the end of the week (or possible next week, in case the mailservice takes a little longer). Please watch out for your mail and inform us in case you bank details have changed since your application!

Important note:
There was a technical problem while printing the notifications, so that some of them state that the subsidies would probably be payed out in August 2021. While we are good, unfortunately we still haven’t figured out time traveling yet. Sorry about that.
The payout of the subsidies for winter semester 2021/22 will probably be in March 2022!

(We’ll post another update once the payout is done.
Please refrain from inquiries about the status of the payout until then!)

Application processing status (winter semester 2021/22)

Dear applicants,

we’re currently still working on the applications for subsidy for winter semester 2021/22, which unfortunately is delayed due to the corona-restrictions, understaffing and illness in the team.
Therefore, we can not yet say with certainty when the notes and subsidies will be sent out. It will, however, probably not be before the end of the re-registration deadline mid February. (As soon as there are any relevant news, we’ll of course inform you right here.)
In case you’re having financial troubles with the re-registration, you can apply for an extension of the re-registration deadline at the enrollment office. The colleagues know about our situation and are accordingly accommodating.

You can nonetheless already apply for subsidy for the upcoming summer semester.
The forms can be found right here, the regular deadline for applications is the 28th of Februarch 2022.
