Procedure & deadlines

The online application for reimbursement of the RMV semester ticket is very simple:

  1. You have to go to "Submit your application here", fill in the mandatory fields marked with an asterisk and submit the application. In this first step, it is not yet necessary to send proof of the reason for the application.

  2. Afterwards, you will receive an e-mail to the supplied e-mail address with a link which you have to activate. Please also check your spam folder for a mail from us.

  3. Then you can log in with your mail address and the password and either upload missing proofs or inform yourself about the status of the application processing.

In any case, the student ID must be sent by the end of the deadline.

As soon as the application is complete (i.e. including proofs and sending of the CampusCard), the amount for the semester ticket will be transferred to the supplied bank account.

Applications for reimbursement of the RMV-Semester Ticket can be made as follows

  • for the winter semester:
    Application deadline is always from 1 - 31.10.. Deadline for submitting evidence and sending the CampusCard by 11.11.

  • for the summer semester:
    Application deadline always from 1. - 30.04.
    Deadline for submitting the evidence and sending the CampusCard by 12.05.

For all reasons stated, the applicants obligation to provide evidence applies. Incomplete applications after 11.11. or 12.05. will not be refunded.


The semester ticket works according to the "solidarity principle" - everyone has to pay the amount within the scope of enrollment or re-registration, therefore it is very favorable compared to the regular tickets.

Even for those of you who use the ticket only rarely, there is a price advantage compared to the purchase of one-way tickets -- even if the use is low.

However, not everyone is always able to use the semester ticket and therefore, if one of the following application reasons applies, you can have the amount refunded:

  • Stay abroad due to studies for at least 3 months in the semester of application or internship or thesis outside the area of validity of the RMV semester ticket for at least 3 months in the semester of application.

  • Enrollment at two universities within the area of validity of the RMV-Semester Ticket

  • Severe disability with entitlement to transport and possession of the supplementary sheet to the severely disabled person's ID card as well as the corresponding token.

  • Semester off

  • Doctorate

  • If the requirements for the registration of the final examination are fulfilled AND there are no attendance obligations at the university AND the domicile as well as the actual place of residence is outside the area of validity of the RMV-Semesterticket

  • health situation that makes it impossible to use RMV transportation for at least 3 months in the current semester

  • possession of the Hessian state ticket "Landes-Ticket Hessens" (no "job" or "Mobi" tickets)

If none of the above reasons apply to you, the RMV-Semester Ticket cannot be refunded.

Note: The application reason "health situation" can be submitted at any time during the current semester, but no later than the end of the application period in the following semester (31.10. or 30.04.). If the request is made during the online deadline retroactively for the past semester or outside the regular deadlines, please use the following form (pdf). Then and only then will a paper application still be accepted.
