Your Position:

Are there any changes to the extra earnings rules for BAföG?

The German Federal Government has come out in favor of fully excluding earnings from being calculated against BAföG for students in all system-relevant industries and professions, with retroactive effect from March 1 and for the entire duration of the current state of national pandemic emergency as declared by the Deutscher Bundestag.

Therefore, our office will not verify proofs of additional income (copy of employment contract and salary statements) from pandemic-related work activities until the end of the current grant period, along with all the other proofs of earnings.
