Can I exmatriculate myself? (Dropout)

“I have completed all the work and only have to register/write/submit my master’s thesis. Can I de-register now?”

You will always be exmatriculated officially at the end of the semester (Summer semester: September 30th; Winter semester: March 31st) (e.g. due to successful completion of your studies or lack of re-registration). However, you can deregister yourself at any time. Please apply for this directly to the student administration:
