Prerequisites

The legal foundation for cross-registration is established in the current edition of Section 52 of the North Rhine-Westphalia Higher Education Act. Admission as a cross-registered student in restricted admission courses of study is not possible, as stated in Section 48 Paragraph 2 of the Higher Education Act.

In order to be admitted as a cross-registered student at RWTH Aachen, you must prove that you are already enrolled at another university in Germany and are not simultaneously taking a leave of absence from your studies.

There is a difference between small cross-registration, as explained in Section 52 Paragraph 1 of the Higher Education Act, and big cross-registration, as explained in Section 52 Paragraph 2 of the Higher Education Act.

 

Small Cross-Registration

Students who are enrolled as primary students at other universities, can be admitted as cross-registered students to take courses and exams. Such students are called small cross-registered students. Small cross-registered students cannot take all exams and can be admitted in the same course of study.

Small cross-registered students are not eligible to register for language courses, offered through RWTH Aachen University Language Center.

 

Big Cross-Registration

Students from other German universities can be admitted to another course of study upon fulfillment of general admission requirements, especially the university entrance qualification certificate.

Big cross-registered students have complete rights for taking exams unlike small cross-registered students. An academic degree is possible within the Big Cross-Registration.
