Deutsche Version

 

According to Art. 95 section 4 of the Bayerisches Hochschulgesetz (Bavarian Higher Education Act), an additional fee may be charged on top of the basic fee for the transportation of students or the potential transportation of students at a discounted rate on local public transportation. The amount of the additional fee is determined by the costs incurred and is based on a corresponding agreement between the Studentenwerk München (Munich Student Union) and the local transportation authorities for the transportation of students at a flat rate or the potential transportation of students at a discounted flat rate.

As of the Winter Semester 2013/14, a semester ticket (basic ticket) was first introduced for students registered at a number of universities in Munich, including students registered at LMU Munich. As part of their registration or continuation of registration, all students registered at LMU Munich are charged the additional fee for the semester ticket on top of the basic fee.

Each semester all students must pay the additional fee for the semester ticket as part of their registration or continuation of registration, even in the case of a leave-of-absence semester.

The additional fee for the semester ticket as well as the basic fee are due at the time of registration or continuation of registration. According to the official notifications, they must be paid in one lump sum by the specified deadlines. If all fees due are not paid on time by the deadline, the student’s registration will be cancelled or the continuation of registration will not be completed and the student will be exmatriculated.

Upon request, only severely disabled students will be granted an exemption from the additional fee for the semester ticket if they are eligible for free transportation, according to Book IX of the German Social Code, and if they present the supplementary page of the severely disabled person’s pass displaying the valid stamp.
