Step 2: Send the online application

After you have filled in the necessary sections, you can either print off and send the application to the BAföG office by post, or send the application electronically by De-Mail to the BAföG office. You will need your own De-Mail account in order to do this.

If you would like to hand in your application in person or by post, please print out the application after you have filled it in.

Online application by email:

Alternatively you can send us your BAföG electronically by email without a signature. You will need your own De-Mail account in order to do this. Send the De-Mail with confirmation of its dispatch (Registration with ‘high’ authentification level and/or ‘private/personal’)

  • Save the filled in application as a PDF document

De-Mail encrypts, protects and sends verified electronic messages. It is as easy as sending an email. In contrast, it is possible with De-Mail to verify the identity of communication partners, as well as the dispatch and receipt of De-Mails with absolute certainty.

The contents of a De-Mail cannot be read or changed once it has been sent. Saved application procedures and connections to De-Mail service providers take care of the encrypted transportation path between the De-Mail providers for a secure dispatch and receipt.
