A refund of the semester ticket fee is possible in case of a study-related stay of more than four months within a semester outside the area of validity of the SemesterTicket NRW. Study-related means that the stay was triggered by your studies. This includes e.g. a compulsory internship. However, a voluntary internship or an employment relationship are not covered by this! The exception to this is an external doctorate. For this, a confirmation from the supervising professor must also be enclosed, stating that enrollment is mandatory. The semester fee must first be paid in full. Tenancy agreements and registration certificates do not constitute proof of a study-related stay.

The application deadline is November 1 (WiSe 23:59) or May 1 (SoSe 23:59).

The applications must be addressed to the Social Committee of the Student Parliament and must be submitted via the following online-formular.

The application must be submitted by the respective date. This also applies if the attachments are not yet available! In this case, please write a short Word document that the attachments are unfortunately not yet available, but will be submitted by you later. You can then simply send them by e-mail to semesterticket@asta.rwth-aachen.de. For procedural reasons your application will be rejected at first. However, this is not a big deal and can be changed later.
