Step 6: Paying the Austrian Student Union Fee and Tuition Fees

As soon as you have paid the Austrian Student Union fee and, if applicable, your tuition fees, within the corresponding time period, you will be an official student of the Johannes Kepler University Linz. As you have time until the end of the admissions period and/or grace period to make your payments, we consider this the last of your "First Steps". Of course you can make your payment immediately after being admitted.


The Austrian Student Fees is €19.20 (last update: June 2017) and the fee must be paid each semester.


Academic degree programs are subject to a set time period in which to complete them. The time period include two additional semesters, if needed (for Diploma degree programs, per section of study). EU and EEA students are generally not subject to paying tuition fees during this period. Students who exceed the time period to complete a degree program are subject to paying tuition fees in the amount of € 363.36/semester (last update: June 2017).

Externally enrolled students and non-degree seeking students are generally subject to paying tuition fees. See for detailed information and special conditions.


You have two options in order to pay the Austrian Student Union fee and/or tuition fees:

  • At any Service Point terminal using the "Quick" function or your ATM card
  • Via pay-in slip/online banking services*

*You must include your current customer information. You can find this in KUSSS under the menu item "Tuition Fees"!


During the admission period, you will pay the regular amount for tuition fees and/or Austrian Student Union fee. During the grace period, tuition fees for enrolled degree-seeking students will be raised by 10%. The Austrian Student Union fee will NOT increase during the grace period!

NOTE! Failure to pay the Austrian Student Union fee and/or tuition fees by the end of the grace period will result in disenrollment from your major!
