Co-Registered Students.

Are you currently enrolled at another university in Austria but need to take a class at the JKU? Then you can enroll at the JKU as a 'co-registered student' and start!

Co-registered students (="Mitbeleger*innen") are students enrolled at another university (their "home" or "primary" university) but who are required take courses at the JKU for credit (because, for example, the home university does not offer the required course).


Application for Co-Registration

1. Create an Applicant Account

How do I create an applicant account?

During the account registration procedure, you will register at the JKU for the first time and as an applicant to the university, you will receive a guest account. This account will allow you to continue the registration procedure.


Please note:

  • You will only need this account as a prospective applicant to register to enroll in a degree program until you have been successfully admitted to the university.
  • The applicant account does not permit you to log into JKU IT services (i.e. KUSSS). You may only log in to JKU IT services once you have been successfully admitted to the university and your degree program.

If you already have an applicant account, proceed directly to Step 2 "How Do I Choose a Degree Program?”

2. Select your degree program and submit an application for admission

How do I select my degree program?

Log in to your applicant account at JKU MyAdmission and select "Non-degree program / Co-registration".


For this step, we ask that you submit the following:

  • A recent portrait-size photo (JPEG) for your JKU Card (student ID card)


Please note:

  • You will be taking part in a statistical survey in accordance with § 18 Sec. 6 of the Education Documentation Act.
  • Submit the recent photo as a JPEG file, not in a read-only mode, and as a portrait size. Please select a passport photo in which you are clearly identifiable, preferably with a monochrome background.

What Documents do I Need for the Application?

Please ensure that all of your documents are in a PDF file format, complete (all pages), and legible.

  • Confirmation issued by the studies administration office at your home university stating that the course(s) you will take at the Johannes Kepler University are not offered or available at your home university.
  • Valid passport, ID card or driver's license in combination with your proof of nationality.
  • Confirmation of any name change, providing all documents do not contain the same name (i.e. a marriage certificate).

3. Complete Admission

How can I complete the admissions process?

In lieu of the current pandemic it is not necessary to come in person for the admission.

Your admissions process will be completed online and we will inform you about all further steps via e-mail.


4. Student Union Fees and Tuition Fees

Do I Have to Pay the Austrian Student Union Fee Twice?

No, but please note that you must pay any tuition fees at your home university (the university you earning your degree at). Payment must be indicated each semester on the most recent version of your student record sheet and a copy e-mailed to:
