Status, evaluation result and admission
We evaluate your documents according to criteria set by the universities of your choice. We will inform you by email as soon as the result is available in your My assist account under “My Inbox.” If all criteria are met we can forward your application to the university. The admission process of the university starts after this. The university itself is responsible for informing you on admission.
Please note: In the VPD procedure, you use the VPD received from uni-assist to apply directly at the university. uni-assist does not forward your application to universities in this procedure.
After you sent your documents and paid the handling fee, we will process your application. This may take 4 to 6 weeks.
We will inform you by email as soon as the evaluation result is available in your My assist account under “My Inbox.” We only evaluate if all necessary documents are included in the right form during the processing procedure. You may submit missing documents up until the Application deadline.

Did you receive your evaluation result from uni-assist? Find information about the next steps now.
Your application is successful if we received your complete application within the deadline and all criteria set by the university are met. We will inform you about it via your inbox in your My assist account. As soon as we have forwarded your application, the university’s Admission office is responsible for handling your application. The university will then decide if you will be placed in a course and will inform you of all further steps.
- Receiving multiple offers of admission: If you are offered admission by multiple universities, you are free to decide which one to accept.
- VPD exceptions: In the VPD procedure we issue the preliminary review documentation (VPD) as a pdf. You can download it from your My assist account at “My inbox.” You then apply directly to your chosen university using the VPD.
- hochschulstart.de (DoSV) exceptions: If you are applying using the DoSV, you can use your hochschulstart.de account to check if one of your chosen universities has made you an offer. You will be able to accept this offer online.
This may happen if you are missing application documents, if documents have the wrong form or arrived too late at uni-assist. Unless all criteria set by the university are met, we cannot forward your application. We will inform you via your inbox in your My assist account if this is the case.
- You may submit missing documents up until the application deadline. We will then process your application again and inform you of the result.
- If the application deadline has passed, you can no longer submit documents or make any changes. If that is the case, apply again for a later semester.
