Step By Step to Your CSN Connection
If all of the above prerequisites have been met and preparations have been done, the following steps have to be taken when registering for the first time:
- Fill out the registration form completely and submit it. You will instantly receive a confirmation e-mail1 with the subject „[CSN] Anmeldebestätigung / Registration confirmation“ which just confirms that we have received your application.
- Now the Studentenwerk (StuWe, student services) has to verify the data you have entered for legal reasons2.
