Please clarify first with the Amt für Ausbildungsförderung (Office for Educational Funding) if you get BAföG as a foreign student. If yes you can fill in your BAföG application online. The online completion option helps to avoid mistakes by using a plausibility check and provides assistance. We can therefore process your application more quickly. 

Please print out the filled-in application, sign and send it with the required documents by post, fax or E-Mail, or hand it in personally. You additionally have the option of sending the forms as an electronic application by De-Mail.

Info on DE-Mail


You can deliver the online application electronically via De-Mail. This is possible exclusively online as a PDF without a signature. Only Form 3 must be signed by your parents. The required documents can be attached as scans to the De-Mail.

The prerequisite for this procedure is that you have your own De-Mail account and send the application to us with the authentication level set to “high” (confirmed by sender).
