The thoska has replaced the old library and copy cards and also serves as a personalized student ID card. With thoska, administrative processes are made more efficient and customer-friendly.
At the Nordhausen University each student and employee receives the thoska since the winter semester 2008.
No. From the winter semester 2008/09 the thoska is the only issued student ID.
No. The once received thoska accompanies you your entire study time at the university. On the lower part of the card is a rewritable area (thermal strip). Each semester, you can have this area rewritten using the self-service terminal with the current expiration date and the course data (validation).
Yes, the card must be requested using an application form and a passport photo. All information will be given with your admission.
Newly issued chip cards for students must be provided with a validity imprint. This imprint (validation of the card) can be done by the student himself at the validation machine in Foyer House 18. If the validation on the thoska is incorrect (for example, no semester ticket) please contact the service point.
On thoska the end of validity (= semester end) is printed and stored in the chip. Then the validity end of the self-service terminal is updated by the function "renew validity" during the confirmation for a subsequent semester. This only happens after payment of the semester fee and activation by the student secretariat.
The terminal for validation is located in the foyer of the House 18 in front of the Student-Service-Center.
