RWTHonline Team



The first components of the new RWTHonline campus management system are live as of December 4, 2017. The implementation of the system is kicking off with the application and admission management functions and the student and fee management functions. Course of study management, course and classroom management and exam management will follow between May and August 2018. The functions available in this initial kick off allow RWTH students, the largest user group, access to RWTHonline first.

RWTH employees can find detailed information about the new application and admission management and student and fee management in the RWTHonline info portal in the University's intranet.

Students, prospective students, and applicants can find the most important information here:

What does the go-live of RWTHonline in December mean for me as a student?

The functions you had in CampusOffice under "Studierendensekretariat" until now can now be found in RWTHonline. You will be directed to RWTHonline within CampusOffice. In RWTHonline you will, for example, be able to:

  • your certificates (including your certificate of enrollment, progress of studies certificate, BAfG certificate, and payment confirmation)
  • change your address
  • find payment information for re-enrollment
  • find the application for a leave of absence

If you would like to apply for a higher course semester in an open admission Master's course of study, be aware that there is now an application deadline. Additionally, the enrollment deadline has changed for the doctoral studies programs. There are also changes to the contact persons in the Registrar's Office and International Office. You can find all the information about the new deadlines and contacts in application management in the section application.
