Due to the Corona-Epidemie-Hochschulverordnung § 10 passed by the state, the individual standard period of study of all students who are not enrolled as second students has been increased by several semesters. (SoSe20, WiSe 20/21, SoSe21, WiSe 21/22)
The individual standard period of study can also be looked up in
RWTHonline > Documents > BAföG certificate
Following this, the entitlement to BAföG funding should also increase. Students who would be entitled to BAföG again due to the extension of the standard period of study should send a normal application for further approval to the Bafögamt. In addition, you will find a document of an informal application on this page, which you can attach. (This will make it easier for your case worker to process your application, but it is not obligatory). If you have any individual questions, please contact the social department at firstname.lastname@example.org or your case worker at the BAföG office.
