Services for students at the SSC

You can re-register for the summer semester 2024 from 15 January to 15 February 2024. The semester fee is €298.05. Please transfer the fee to the following bank account:

Recipient: Heinrich Heine University
IBAN: DE55 3005 0000 0004 0011 11
BIC: WELADEDD
Reference: Student ID number, first & last name, date of birth

Please note: For technical reasons, it is essential that you enter the reference exactly as it is stated.

De-registration will be carried out on application. Please ensure beforehand that you have returned all borrowed books and that you do not owe the library any fees.

Students who have completed all components of their final exams in the previous semester and subsequently de-register or do not re-register can subsequently apply to retract their de-registration in the following semester if it becomes clear that they have not passed an exam or if they wish to resit an exam to improve their grade after taking an exam attempt that does not count if it is failed (“free exam attempt”).


You can request de-registration via the E-Student-Services portal under “Applications”. Your application will then be processed by the administrative team and you can download your certificate of de-registration from the E-Student-Services portal after processing.

Application for de-registration

You can request address and name changes via the E-Student-Services portal.
In order to change your name, you must submit a change of name certificate from the Residence Registration Office or a marriage certificate. Please upload the certificate as a file with your application.

TIN (trans*, inter* and non-binary) students can also request an advance change of their registered (first) name and gender via the E-Student-Services portal.
