Proof of performance

From the 5th semester onwards, educational support is only provided from the time when the student submits a certificate from the university (Form 5: Leistungsbescheinigung nach § 48 BAföG). This can only be issued by the Student Service after the grades from the 4th semester have been received. This certifies that the student has performed the usual services by the end of the respective semester if the course of study is in order.

You can obtain Form 5: Leistungsbescheinigung nach § 48 BAföG online from the Studentenwerk.

You enter the header data and your grant number and send the completed form, also in electronic form if you wish, to the Student Services.

Your certificate of achievement will be assessed positively if you have achieved 100% of the examination results (30 ECTS points per semester), i.e. 120 ECTS points after 4 semesters.

Deviating from this, your certificate will also be assessed positively if you have achieved at least 85 ECTS points at the end of the fourth semester - this is the maximum lower limit.

If you need the certificate of achievement for a subject semester other than the end of the 4th semester, it can be issued positively if you have received it by the end of the 4th semester.

  • fifth semester at least 105 ECTS points
  • sixth semester at least 125 ECTS points

have been achieved.

If your performance certificate is assessed negatively, no BAföG will initially be paid, but you have the option of issuing a new performance certificate in accordance with § 48 BAföG.

Continued support can be assessed positively if you have completed your studies by the end of the

  • fifth semester at least 105 ECTS points
  • sixth semester at least 125 ECTS points

have been achieved.
