  1. What can I do if I have problems with the LSF/HISPOS system for registering for an exam or committing a module?

    In order to make sure you can sit an exam and that your talks/exercises/projects/term papers count, you have to commit yourself for each module in the online LSF/HISPOS system before the end of the commitment deadline ("Commitmentfrist"). If you do not do this, even exercises you already handed in or talks you already give do not count. The commitment period is announced on the main home page of the institute and normally ends 3-4 weeks before end of term.

    If you have any problems with commitment you have to contact the administrative office immediately (or at the latest before the commitment deadline) so that they can note down your commitments.

  2. How are the marks entered into LSF/HISPOS?

    The marks for all CL modules will be entered by the Computational Linguistics administration if you committed on time for the corresponding module. For marks in the secondary subject, please contact the study advisor or administration in the secondary subject.

  3. My mark is not yet entered into the LSF system.

    Please give the module leaders 4 weeks after end of term for marking. The marks will be entered directly by our administrative office.

    If the mark has not been entered before the next term, contact the administrative office to find out the reason. Please take note of our commitment regulations (see this FAQ).

  4. I was sick at exam time but already committed. What should I do?

    You will have to hand in a doctor's note that covers the day of the exam to our administrative office. The director then decides whether your commitment can then be canceled. If so, you will have to take the next possible exam for that module.

  5. Can I get credit points during a semester on leave?

    No, this is not possible.
