1. application for BAföG

If you want to start studying, the first application should be submitted by the end of the 1st month in which lectures begin!

Subsequent applications

As a rule, BAföG funding is granted for a period of 12 months at a time (the notice of BAföG states the grant period (BWZ) in the upper part of the notice). The BAföG Office usually needs 3 months for processing. For a continuous BAföG payment, follow-up applications should therefore be submitted 3 months before the current BWZ expires!
