What is the application process for an undergraduate NC degree program?

Step 1: Registration with Hochschulstart

Register via www.hochschulstart.de. After successful registration you will receive an applicant ID (BID) and an applicant authentication number (BAN). You can find the BID and BAN numbers under "My data". Make a note of your BID and BAN, as they are necessary for the online application at uni-assist

Step 2: Application via uni-assist

Submit your application for the desired degree program via the uni-assist MyA online portal. You can apply for up to three NC degree programs at RheinMain University.

Step 3: Upload documents

Upload all required documents on the uni-assist application portal MyAssist and submit the application online. uni-assist will evaluate your documents and forward the valid applications to Hochschule RheinMain. You can find a check list of the required documents in the download section.

Step 4: Prioritization and admission

After a positive evaluation, uni-assist will automatically forward your application in electronic form to RheinMain Hochschule, where your admission will be decided. When your application has been accepted, your data will be transferred to our Campus Management System HSRM COMPASS and you will receive your personal access data by e-mail. This is important for the further admission process.

If you have submitted several applications for NC study programs, you must prioritize them on www.hochschulstart.de in the tab "Bewerber". You can prioritize until the end of the coordination phase. You can find detailed information about this on the 'hochschulstart' web site.

Regardless of the coordination rules, you have the option to actively accept an existing offer of admission. Once you have accepted an offer or once your best possible offer is converted into an admission, all other admission offers expire. This step can no longer be reversed.

After you have received an offer of admission, you must accept it in 'hochschulstart' the admission letter is available on the application portal under HSRM COMPASS approximately one hour later. Enrollment is possible immediately and for a limited time (usually 10 days). After receiving an admission letter, please note the deadlines for enrollment on the admission letter. If you do not meet this deadline, the admission will be void.

Important dates in the DoSV procedure

Your application in the uni-assist application portal must be completed by Januar 15 for a summer semester or July 15 for a winter semester in order to participate in the procedure. Even if uni-assist has long processing times during the peak application period: you can participate in the procedure as long as all documents have been received within the deadline and you meet the application requirements.

Please refer to the hochschulstart website for the exact deadlines for prioritization (in case of several submitted applications).

If you have not received a study place in the main procedure, there is the possibility to apply in the lottery procedure if study places are (still) available shortly before the start of lectures. A remaining place can be allocated by lottery (information only in German).
