Semester ticket

Semester ticket

The AStA has negotiated the RMV-AStA semester ticket for HfMDK students, which is valid for six months. It entitles you to any number of journeys in 2nd class with all means of local transport in the entire Rhein-Main-Verkehrsverbund (RMV) and the transition tariff area to the Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Neckar (VRN) and to the Nordhessischen Verkehrsverbund (NVV). The ticket is affixed to your student ID at the student secretariat. You pay for it at the beginning of the semester when you re-register.

However, the RMV-AStA-Semesterticket is unrivaled in price. The relatively inexpensive semester ticket comes about because all students at Hessian universities purchase it in a solidarity system. Therefore, it can only be refunded in exceptional cases. Here you have free travel in the RMV: RE (Regional Express), RB (Regional Bahnen), SE (Stadtexpress), S-Bahn (suburban trains), U-Bahn (subway trains), streetcars, buses, call collective cabs of the RMV (if available).


The semester ticket is automatically purchased upon re-registration. However, there are reasons for which one can apply for a refund of this amount. Important: In the case of a refund of the semester ticket fee, the right to travel is no longer valid!

Financial loans

Financial loans

"The Student Parliament may grant short-term loans to regularly enrolled students of the School of Music and Performing Arts."

This is how the StuPa's loan regulations begin, which are also posted on the AStA bulletin board. Here is a short overview:

  • The student parliament can grant you loans.
  • The amount is usually between 250 and 500 euros.
  • It usually has a term of half a year, but can be extended twice for another three months each time.
  • During this time it is interest-free.


  • You have acute financial problems that make it difficult or impossible for you to continue your studies.
  • You will be able to support yourself again in the foreseeable future.
  • Another student at the university is willing to vouch for you. However, he or she must not have received or applied for a loan from us at that time.


  • You write a letter to the AStA. In it you briefly explain your problem. You deposit this letter in the AStA box at the gate. And don't forget your name and telephone number...
  • Then the financial department will contact you and arrange an appointment. The guarantor will come with you to this appointment. You will both sign the application. Please bring your student ID with you.
  • Now the StuPa decides in one of the following weekly meetings about the allocation of the loan. After that, the financial department will contact you. If the loan is granted, the repayment installments will be agreed upon. In any case, you will receive a letter with the decision of the AStA and the rest of the details.
  • As a rule, the money will be transferred to you. This is also the start of the term, within which you will hopefully have overcome your financial low and repaid the loan to the AStA. For a possible extension of the term or other difficulties, please contact the finance department.

As I said, this is only a short summary of the loan regulations. In the end you should still read it, because it is the basis for the contract!
