Application Forms and Information

Important to the BAföG

Since 1 July 2021, also in Saxony, pupils and students can apply for BAföG via the new digital application assistant “BAföG Digital”. The BAföG application can be easily created, edited and handed in digitally, by submitting all the necessary data via the new online tool. All forms needed are merged in a simple and transparent way. If the application is verified by means of an electronic identity card, it is submitted digitally and the applicant receives an automatic notification that the application has been received.

Advantages of BAföG Digital:

  • Create, process and send your BAföG application comfortably online
  • Self-explanatory and easy-to-understand online tool
  • Step-by-step application assistant
  • Upload function for required documents and certificates
  • BAföG applications can be saved as an interim status and processed at a later date.
  • The processing status of your application can be monitored at all times
  • Registration is possible with or without the new identity card
  • With an “online ID card”: automatic transmission to the Department for Grants is possible as well

Alternatively, the forms can still be handed in by post, as an e-mail attachment or outside the opening hours in our BAföG letterbox on the ground floor of Goethestr. 6.
