D.h. für Studierende, die ihre Abschlussprüfung ab dem 01.01.2013 ablegen, entfällt die Möglichkeit des leistungsabhängigen BAföG-Teilerlasses. Einen Antrag auf einen leistungsabhängigen BAföG-Teilerlass können Sie nach Erhalt des Feststellungs- und Rückzahlungsbescheids beim Bundesverwaltungsamt stellen.
