Have you chosen the right major for you? After completing the StEOP requirements, you will know for sure! New students get a detailed overview of what exactly your selected Bachelor's or Diploma degree program entails.
The StEOP requirements include mandatory courses that you must take and pass at the beginning of your studies. Check your program curriculum to find out what these courses are.
Important: You must take and successfully pass the required StEOP classes before continuing on in the program. You may take and pass some classes in addition to the required StEOP classes, but only a limited number of classes.
Studies Introduction and Orientation Phase (StEOP)
Information about the Studies Introduction and Orientation Phase (StEOP) for individual degree programs as part of the COVID-19 stipulations are available in Section 1 of the COVID-19 Study Law Regulations from May 14, 2020 (German only).
Additional information about the StEOP requirements are in the "FAQs" section below:
Do I have to complete the StEOP requirements?
What are the StEOP courses I have to pass?
How often can I take an examination within the StEOP requirements?
The StEOP (course) examinations may only be repeated three times (= 4 attempts).
Students who fail the last attempt at passing a required examination in the StEOP program as outlined in the curriculum will be disenrolled from the university. Students who wish to re-enroll in the program must wait at least three semesters to re-apply after being disenrolled. Students may only apply for re-admission twice.
What do I have to do after I have successfully passed the required StEOP courses?
The KUSSS system checks daily to see if all courses/examinations required to successfully complete the StEOP portion of the program have been completed and a final grade has been entered in KUSSS. Completion of the StEOP requirements are then automatically considered completed.
What happens if don't pass the StEOP classes?
Students who fail the last attempt at passing a required examination in the StEOP program as outlined in the curriculum will be disenrolled from the university.
I have passed all StEOP course examinations,
however the grades are still pending. Can I
still sign up for additional classes?
In this case, you can only sign up conditionally for additional classes in KUSSS, especially those courses that require having passed the StEOP examinations as a pre-requisite. You can find corresponding information in KUSSS when you sign up for classes and in the section "Meine Anmeldungen".
