The individual standard period of study will also be extended for the winter semester 2020/21!
For students enrolled in the summer semester 2020 or winter semester 2020/2021, the individual standard period of study will be extended by one semester for each of these semesters in order to cushion hardship caused by the Corona pandemic.
For first-semester students (WS 2020/21), this means that the submission of the proof of academic achievement according to § 48 BAföG is postponed by one semester and the maximum funding period is increased by one semester.
For students who were enrolled in the summer semester 2020 and the winter semester 2020/21, the submission of the proof of academic achievement is now also postponed by another semester, i.e. by a total of two semesters. The same applies to the maximum funding period.
