Fees and Payment
Handling Fees for the pre-check of applications
On November 4, 2003, during the association's inaugural meeting at the Wissenschaftszentrum Bonn, it was decided per §5 of the articles of association to raise handling fees for processing international university applications. The handling fee is paid to uni-assist for the singular processing and formal review of application documents. The amount of fees is ascertained by the member universities of uni-assist.
Please inform yourself about the current rates in our section Regulation of fees. The handling fees must be paid completely before expiration of the deadline, otherwise the applications can neither be processed nor forwarded to the universities.
Some uni-assist member universities take over the costs for the processing of applications via uni-assist. In such cases, the university's applicants do not have to pay a handling fee for the pre-check of their application. Please find further information in our section Cost transfer.
Please also take note of our information on payments.
