The individual standard period of study will also be extended for the summer semester 2021!
For students enrolled in the summer semester 2020, winter semester 2020/2021 or summer semester 2021, an individual standard period of study that deviates from the standard period of study will be extended by one semester for each of these semesters; in order to cushion hardships caused by the Corona pandemic.
The individual standard period of study essentially affects the period of entitlement to BAföG. For first-semester students (summer semester 2021), this means that the submission of the certificate of achievement according to § 48 BAföG will be postponed by one semester and the maximum funding period will increase by one semester.
For students who were enrolled in the summer semester 2020, winter semester 2020/21 and summer semester 2021, the submission of the transcript of records is now also postponed by a further semester, i.e. by a total of three semesters. The same applies to the maximum funding period.
