Studying with an impairment, disability, chronic or psychological disease at the Frankfurt UAS

Tips and tricks to apply for entitlement to benefits

Contact us at an early point in time, so that we can provide you with the necessary support (i.e. assistance) right from the start. The relevant Social Welfare Office (first place of residence) accepts applications for financing the integration assistance. The processing period may take up to 3 months and longer. We therefore recommend submitting the applications right after the enrollment.

Here you can find information on the documents, which you generally need to submit along with the application.

Compensations for disadvantages at the Frankfurt UAS

As a student with impairments, disabilities, chronic or psychological diseases, you may submit claims for compensations of disadvantages (particularly in examinations). General information about the compensations for disadvantages of the Deutsches Studentenwerk can be found here.

The regulations at the Frankfurt UAS apply as follows: You submit an application for compensation of disadvantages with the examination board of the respective degree course. The application is to be informal or via an application form. Each examination board regulates it itself.

Here are the links to the examination offices of the four faculties:

Here is the application form of Faculty 3 and the application form of Faculty 4. Students of Faculty 1 and 2 need to submit an informal letter to the examination board of their faculty.

Fill out the application form and send it via email to the respective examination board of the degree course, in which you study.

We are here to support you should you require help.
