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

When to submit the BAföG application?

If possible, you should apply for BAföG before enrollment. Namely in the case of a renewal 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.

Training grants are not granted retrospectively. They are only given starting with the month of application or with the beginning of the month in which the training started.

Only written applications are accepted. If you do not want to download the forms from www.BAfö you can also get the forms from our counseling centers.
However, an informal application submitted on time - if necessary on a coaster - is also possible.

Application processing and funding period

If while processing the application we find out that documents, evidence, etc. are missing, we will inform you by post so that you can submit these documents later. We cannot process your application until the complete documents have been submitted which would mean that the application decision will be delayed.

If you want to make sure to you submit all documents from the beginning, we recommend you to make an appointment beforehand. You can reserve this quickly, easily and securely in our calendar for appintments.

Generally, the dicision conserning your application is made for one year. If your training has not yet been completed, you must submit a follow-up application in time (at least two months before the end of the approval period) so that you have no interruptions in the receipt of funds.
The end of your approval period can be found in the middle of the first page of the BAföG response.
