FAQ - General questions

Here we answer your questions about general topics:

Update October 22, 2021: Starting Monday, October 25, 2021, you can get tested for free on site at all locations (Heilbronn-Sontheim, Heilbronn-Bildungscampus, Künzelsau and Schwäbisch Hall). You can find more information here.

Under the current plan, the college will not build a testing center or pay for Corona testing. In doing so, the university is following the state's guidelines which are quoted below from a letter sent to universities:

"[...] Due to the discontinuation of free citizenship tests as of October 11, 2021, there is a desire on the part of these students to provide them with free tests - from the state or university side - for their further studies. In line with all states, we will not comply with the request for permanent funding of tests for students because we would ultimately create a false incentive not to get vaccinated. [...]"

Due to corona-related disadvantages that arose in the summer semester 2020, winter semester 2020/21 and summer semester 2021, the state of Baden-Württemberg has decided to grant all students enrolled in the summer semester 2020, winter semester 2020/21 and summer semester 2021 one additional semester each. For this purpose, the standard duration of study was increased by three semesters for the students. Example: The standard duration of study for a 7-semester course is increased to 10 semesters. This regulation does not currently apply to students who begin their studies in the winter semester 2021/22 or later.

Depending on whether you were an undergraduate or graduate student in the SoSe or WS, the three semesters there will be added accordingly.

Printing at the Sontheim campus is possible again in a limited form.

Printing at the Künzelsau Campus is possible again as usual.

Information on the other sites will follow as soon as it is available.

Information and instructions on the subject of printing can be found further under https://intranet.hs-heilbronn.de/drucken-kopieren.

In the B-Building, printers are available in the anteroom to the student service office. As many people as there are printers are allowed to be in this room. However, the printer room in F024 is still closed, which means that printing is only possible in a somewhat limited form at the Sontheim campus for the time being.
