Application forms

You can find all forms, information and tips & tricks on the BAföG website of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research at www.bafö

How to apply for BAföG?

The application can be made in writing or electronically. For a written application, you can download the forms from www.BAfö or obtain them from our advice centers. Then submit the completed and signed documents personally or send them to us by post!

The electronic application is possible at www.bafö We recommend this form of application because it enables faster processing and also saves a lot of paper.

An informal application - if necessary on a beer mat - is also possible within the deadline.

When to submit the BAföG application?

If possible, your BAföG funding should be applied for before you enroll. That means, for an initial application for the winter semester in June or July and for a follow-up application in January for the summer semester or in July for the winter semester. It usually takes around 8 weeks from the complete application to the first payment.

BAföG is not granted retrospectively, but only from the month in which the application is submitted or from the beginning of the month in which the training is started.

Application processing and funding period

If we experience that documents, evidence, etc. are missing when processing the application, we will inform you by post so that you can submit these documents later. Until the complete documents have been submitted, we cannot process your application conclusively, so the application decision will be delayed.

If you want to make sure that you submit all documents right from the start, we recommend that you make an appointment in advance. You can reserve this quickly, easily and securely in our consultation calendar or arrange it individually by telephone.

As a general rule, an application is decided for one year. If your education has not yet been completed, you should submit a follow-up application in good time. If there are no interruptions in the receipt of funds, the application must be submitted at least two months before the end of the approval period.
