International Affairs
Before you leave KIT, you should de-register. In order to do so, you should come by the International Students Office and pick up your “Antrag auf Exmatrikulation”. This request form has to be stamped by the library, the International Students Office and the Students Office (Studierendenservice). Also, you should get your confirmation of departure from the International Students Office. In case your home university needs further forms stamped, this is the time as well.

In order to transfer the credits you’ve achieved at KIT to your home university, you should download your transcript of records in Campus Management Portal. Only students from the department for Humanities and Social Sciences and students from the Sports Department should contact their departmental coordinator.
