Matriculation for a Bachelor’s program or the CMS (except French baccalauréats since 2021)

For Swiss maturités/Maturitäten (federal, cantonal, professional, and specialised), the procedure is done via registered mail. It is therefore not necessary to come to matriculation days.

For French baccalauréats completed after 2020 (baccalauréat général with spécialités and no series), please check the dedicated webpage.

Place: CM building, room CM 1 105, level 1 (entrance through doorway CM 1 94.5, level 1)

Dates: Friday the 8th and Thursday the 14th of September, 2023

Schedule: between 9 AM and 1 PM, based on your registration

Documents to bring with you:

  • original of the official transcripts for the school-leaving certificate (maturità, CESS, Abitur, baccalauréat, IB, etc.)
  • original of the school-leaving certificate, if already in your possession
  • identification (ID card or passport)
  • certified translations of the documents which aren’t in French, English, German, or Italian

Only the final transcripts must be provided, not intermediary ones (annual, semestral, trimestral, etc.).

Students who do not have their school-leaving certificate yet can bring it to the Registrar’s Office at a later stage. They must however still come to matriculation days, with all the other required documents.

If you are new to the Swiss higher-education system, a small yellow label with your Swiss student ID will also be placed on the back of your certificate.

No matriculation can take place without these documents!
