Frequently Asked Questions About the Course Registration Procedure in Campus Management

It will be technically possible to sign up for courses from the first workday of the new semester.

As you will need an FU account and as you have to be enrolled in order to sign up for courses via Campus Management, you will miss the regular registration deadline for courses with a limited number of participants. However, you will still have a chance to get a place in courses with a limited number of participants, should there still be places left after the registration deadline, or should another student drop such a course. In order to find out if there are places available, please log into the system regularly. Those left-over places will be allocated according to the rule "first come, first served".

However, a late arrival will have no negative impact on your registration for courses without a limited number of participants. The registration deadline for those courses expires on the third Friday of the lecture period.

Please de-activate the option "nur empfohlene Module anzeigen" (in English: "show only recommended modules"). Otherwise you will only see the modules for the first or for the second semester.

You will still have a chance to get a place in courses with a limited number of participants, should there still be places left after the registration deadline, or should another student drop such a course.

If this is a course with a limited number of participants, you will not be allowed to take part in the course sessions.

However, if this is a course where the number of participants is not limited, you can take part in the lessons, even though you haven't signed up for this course in Campus Management so far.

Students who drop a course via Campus Management are automatically de-registered from the exam. Students who do not drop a course via Campus Management and do not take the exam, are going to finish this course with a non-passing grade (0 points).

You might have selected a week which doesn't fall into the lecture period and where no courses are taking place.

In exceptional cases it may also be possible that the schedule of this particular course hasn't been made available in Campus Management.

Please also keep in mind that the places in courses with a limited number of participants are only allocated after this particular registration deadline has expired so that you cannot see this course in your timetable before the day after the registration has been closed.
