Degree Deadlines

The following dates apply to degrees. Detailed registration procedures are explained in depth on the corresponding subpages.

Degree conferral dates for Bachelor's and Master's degrees

The degree conferral dates below are binding for students pursuing a major and a minor program at the Faculty of Business, Economics and Informatics. 

Students pursuing a minor program at another faculty may also have to meet the deadlines for minor degrees applicable at the other faculty. Please get in touch with us in due time.

Students who pursue a minor program at the Faculty of Law and who take modules for the minor degree in their last semester can only choose between two degree conferral dates per year due to a delayed provision of grades by the Faculty of Law. They can choose the degree conferral date in October with reference to spring semester or the degree conferral date in April with reference to fall semester.

**) as an exception, the Dean's Office remains closed on 04.07.19. The registration deadline for PhD students in OEC will therefore be postponed to 05.07.19 (9:30–11:30 a.m.). Since PhD students in INF register directly at Ifi, their registration deadline on 04.07.19 remains the same.
