There are exceptions to the obligation to pay contributions to the semester ticket. Therefore, refunds can be applied for at the AStA-Office under certain conditions. In case of a refund, the RMV/NVV logo will be removed from the chip card and it is therefore invalid as an RMV/NVV ticket for the entire semester. The cancellation cannot be reversed.


Refund Semesterticket in winter semester 22-23
Please note!
The application at the AStA office is possible from 20.6.22 and ONLY UNTIL 11.11.22! Applications received after 11.11.22 can unfortunately not be considered. Unfortunately, we cannot make any exceptions!


The AStA office is still closed to the public, but staffed. Please hand in applications by showing the validated chip card WS at the office window. Please send your requests by phone or e-mail to buero@asta-giessen.de.


In person you can come to the office window Mon – Thu 9.30-13.30, hand in applications WiSem 22-23 and show the validated chip cards dated 31.03.23.
In justified exceptional cases send application and receipts by mail, only to buero@asta-giessen.de Job tickets do NOT allow refunds!!!


All validated chip cards of the winter semester 22-23 must always be shown here in the original at the office window until the deadline! (even from friends). Please make sure you never submit applications twice. Be sure to read the info sheet.

The procedure in WiSem 22-23 (incl. cancellation after you have read the info sheet!):

  • Re-register at the JLU, always transfer the full semester fee WiSem 22-23 there.
  • Validation of the chip card: Send an email to the student secretariat (stud-sekretariat@admin.uni-giessen.de) and ask them to delete the ticket for WiSem 22-23 in the system of the JLU and to send YOU a confirmation.
  • AFTER you have received the confirmation from the student secretariat about the deletion of the ticket in the system by mail, push the chip card into one of the machines and then show it Mon-Thu between 9.30-13.30 here at the closed AStA office window without RMV/NVV logo (=devalued) and with date 31.03.2023. ALL items must be completed by 11/11/22 at the latest! DEADLINE! Please do it early!
  • Fill in the appropriate application on the PC, print it, sign it, hand in the receipt as requested in the info sheet and, if possible, hand it in here in the original at the office window when showing the validated chip card in the original or, in exceptional cases, send the application with receipt as a pdf file by e-mail to the office buero@asta-giessen.de!
    NEVER submit twice before 11.11.22!
  • The presentation of the card in the original can also do a friend for you! If you have problems or are far away from the office, please ask for solutions.
    As a result, you will no longer have a ticket for public transportation on your student ID card until the end of the semester!
    The invalidation cannot be reversed.
  • Before you come here, please check the office hours on the AStA homepage!
    Check shortly before if the office is actually occupied on that day!
    We may start with the beginning of the semester in October 22 the transfers.
    Please make sure that you arrive without any health risks and that you observe the hygiene and protection measures. Keep your distance! Wear mask!
