The 9 € ticket
The Bundestag and Bundesrat have decided to introduce the so-called 9 € ticket for the months of June, July and August 2022. You as a student will also benefit from this:
The 9 € ticket is already included in the semester ticket.
Students with a semester ticket do not have to buy a 9 € ticket.
The semester ticket is valid nationwide from 1.6. to 31.8.2022 on all public transport in 2nd class without booking another ticket.
This regulation reduces your already paid contribution retroactively for the summer semester 2022 on a pro rata basis. The financial relief will be passed on to you in the following two ways:
1.) Enrolled students who leave the university at the end of the 2022 summer semester or are exmatriculated:
Students who have paid the semester ticket in full in SoSe 2022 and who are demonstrably exmatriculated at the end of SoSe 2022 submit an application for reimbursement. Please complete the application digitally and send the pdf file to the student secretariat responsible for you by 31.10.2022 at the latest.
They will receive a refund of 79.53 €.
2) Students who are enrolled in SoSe 22 and re-register for WiSe 2022/23:
Students who paid the semester ticket in full in the 2022 winter semester and re-register for the 2022/23 winter semester will receive a credit for the 2022/23 winter semester in the amount of the reduced amount from the 2022 winter semester. This is done automatically. In this case, you do not need to submit an application. The credit will not be refunded if you re-register for the winter semester 2022/23. For the re-registration for the winter semester 2022/23, the following reduced amounts result:
For Essen: 251,53 €
AStA: 18,00 €
Student union: 100,00 €
VRR ticket: 104,28 €
NRW ticket: 29,25 €
For Bochum: 232,53 €
AStA: 18,00 €
Student union: 81,00 €
VRR ticket: 104,28

3) First-time and newly enrolled students for the winter semester 2022/23
Students who will be enrolled at Folkwang University of the Arts for the first time in the winter semester 2022/23 will receive notification of the semester fee to be paid for the winter semester 2022/23 together with their admission to studies.
