Start Application for exams Transcript of Records

After your matriculation at the International Students Office (IStO) it is necessary to fill in the online "application form for admission to the examinations" for visiting students (see below). You have to sign the printed "application form for admission to the examinations" and deliver it to the Student Center of Mechanical Engineering (SCM).


The application forms for exams are issued by the SCM. Before each examination, it is necessary to write us an e-mail timely. The e-mail should contain the lectures (and the number of the lectures) in which you would like to take exams. The application form, issued by the SCM, has to be delivered to the respective institutes.
If you need to repeat an examination, you need a new application form, which you have to deliver to the respective institute.
Important! If you don't take part in the examination you have already applied for, you have to unregister at the institute and return the application form to the SCM.

At the end of your study at the KIT, you may receive, upon request, a Transcript of Records (ToR) with your grades. Therefore, all results of examinations and application forms have to be on hand at the SCM. This can take up to several weeks. Please send your request after your last exam per e-mail to the SCM. You can collect the Transcript of Records personally or it will be sent to the address declared by you.

Please notice that the ToR can only be issued once.
