The invoice for semester fees is made available for download in the "Enrollment" request in the student portal at the beginning of every June (for the Fall Semester) and the beginning of every December (for the Spring Semester). New students can download the invoice for their first semester in the application portal under "UZH Documents."
The invoice for a semester of leave can also be found in the "Enrollment" request for the corresponding semester in the tile "My requests and invoices". You must continue to pay the mandatory semester contributions during a semester of leave. Further information on this point can be found on the website Leave of Absence under "Invoice for Mandatory Semester Contributions."
If you plan to change degree programs or study programs, please see the information on the website Changing Degree and/or Study Program, under "Invoice for Semester Fees."
No, a payment of the semester fees in cash is not possible at UZH. You can however pay the invoice in cash at the post office instead.
Registering for graduation does not automatically lead to withdrawal from the University of Zurich. If you would like to leave the University of Zurich, you must also withdraw from the university via the student portal prior to the deadline. Your semester invoice will then be canceled by the Student Administration Office as soon as your request to withdraw from the university has been approved.
If, after completing your Bachelor’s program, you want to continue directly with a Master’s program, or if, after completing a Master’s program, you want to continue directly with a teaching diploma program or doctoral studies at the University of Zurich, please request a change of degree programs instead of withdrawal from the university.
The deadlines for paying the invoice for semester fees are 31 July for the Fall Semester and 31 January for the Spring Semester. You will receive a payment reminder from the Student Administration Office in mid-August for the Fall Semester and mid-February for the Spring Semester. Please pay the invoice for semester fees by no later than this point. If you do not pay by the end of September (for the Fall Semester) or the end of March (for the Spring Semester), you will be withdrawn from the University of Zurich.
Please also note that you will not receive proof of matriculation for the new semester, and you will not be able to book modules or validate your UZH Card until you have paid the semester invoice. Information about activating these services can be found on the website "Enrollment" under "Activating Booking Modules, Validation of the UZH Card, Mailing of Proof-of-Matriculation Vouchers."
No, copies of invoices are not sent, as the semester invoice is saved as a PDF file in the "Enrollment" request in the student portal for the corresponding semester and you can download it as often as you wish. New students can find the invoice for their first semester in the application portal under "UZH Documents."
