Card Validity / Renewing Validity

Card Expiration

After initial validation, your UZH Card is valid for one semester, and must be revalidated every semester thereafter.

The card expiration date is generally not earlier than the second week of lectures in the following semester. In order to ensure that your card remains valid without interruption, you must re-validate it before this date.

Validation Periods

The UZH Card must be re-validated every semester at a UZH validation station. This is only possible after semester enrollment is complete, UZH has received the full semester fee, and from the following dates onward:

Spring Semester From 1 February
Fall Semester From 1 August

Change in Study Details during Period of Validity

Changes to study-related data while the card is valid can be updated by re-validating the card.
