If you receive loans or grants under the BAföG (Bundesausbildungsförderungsgesetz - Federal Education Assistance Act), the Student Services Organisation (Studentenwerk)  will send you forms 3 and 5 after the 4th semester. You can download the certificate in accordance with Section 9 BAföG for form 3 via the LSF Portal (Vorlesungsverzeichnis (course catalogue)).

Form 5 is completed by the Student Services Organisation. The processing time usually takes 3-5 days. In order to obtain this certificate, at least 90 credit points must be proved in the teaching qualification courses and at least 100 credit points must be proved in the artistic/pedagogical courses at the end of your 4th semester. Submit for this your study book to the CIS early on.
