The University Pandemic Ordinance of the State of Brandenburg came into force on 14.10.2020. This means for our BAföG-recipients of state universities: One semester longer BAföG! In addition, the certificate of achievement required by § 48 BAföG can be presented one semester later.
If you have already submitted the follow-up application to us and it has not yet been approved, you do not need to do anything else. If you have already received a decision for the winter semester 2020/2021 and this does not contain the reference to the Pandemic Ordinance, then please contact us at the BAföG Office to have your case examined. The maximum funding period expired after the summer semester 2020, but you have not yet finished your studies? Then submit a follow-up application now so that you can benefit from the new regulation.
If you have any questions, you can reach our BAföG Office during the telephone consultation hours on Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 9.00 and 11.30 a.m. and on Tuesday between 1.00 and 3.00 p.m.
