  • Detailed description

    You can apply for and receive your educational support (BAföG) from the Office for Educational Support responsible for you. However, the Federal Office of Administration (BVA) is responsible for repaying the BAföG loan portion after graduation.

    The Offices for Educational Support only transmit your data once to the BVA. There, an electronic file is created and your loan account is set up.

    You must notify the BVA of any changes to your name or address yourself. This can be done in writing or digitally via BAföG-Online via "Change Notification".

    If you fail to do so, you will have to pay a lump sum of 25 euros for the effort of determining the address.
