Enrolling at the University of Stuttgart

Once you have been admitted to study, your next step will be to enroll formally as a student at the University. On this page you will find all the information you need to complete the enrollment process smoothly.

Once you have succeeded in being admitted to study, the next step is to enroll. You enroll online via the Campus Management System C@MPUS where you will find the Request for Enrollment form that you need to complete and submit. Until you complete the enrollment process you are not yet officially signed up as a student at the University of Stuttgart.

Make sure to complete your enrollment by the deadline stated in your letter of acceptance!

We will enroll you as soon as we receive your enrollment request with the required attachments before the deadline and you have paid all your fees. You will be able to download your Certificate of Enrollment from your student account on C@MPUS. You will receive your student ID through post office mail. If you have additional questions, be sure to check our enrollment FAQs(below) first for answers.

Every public sector entity that has an official seal, such as public authorities, is allowed to produce an authorized certification. Certifications from lawyers, associations, banks, health insurance fund, or similar institutions will not be accepted.

 

An official certification has to include:

1) A certification code which attests that the copy matches the original document.
2) The signature of the attestor
3) An imprint of the official seal  (Official seals usually contain an emblem, a simple writing seal wil not be accepted.)

Additional rules:

  • If the copy consists of several single sheets, it needs to be attested that all sheets belong to the same document. It is sufficient to sign and place the certification code on only one sheet if all sheets are put on top of each other, stapled, and sealed in a way that every sheet contains a part of the official seal.
  • Every single sheet may also be authorized individually. In that case please pay attention that every sheet of the original document contains your name. If not, your name has to be included in the certification code together with an indication of the type of document.
  • If the front and back of a sheet contain a copy with relevant content, the certification code has to refer to both front and back. If not, front and back of the sheet have to be authorized individually.
  • If the original document contains a seal minted in paper this is usually not visible in the copy. In that case the certification code needs to be expanded and refer to the minted seal in the original document.
