Private alternative schools; application for reimbursement of school fees

The Free State of Bavaria grants school fee reimbursement for pupils at private alternative schools in accordance with Art. 47 BaySchFG.



  • State recognition or state approval of the school
  • Existence of a valid school contract
  • Charging of school fees
  • Written agreement with the beneficiaries on the amount of the tuition fee and the fact that it will be offset against the tuition fee claim.
  • No other public funding to replace the school fees


The application for school fee reductions must be submitted in writing by the respective school authority to the Bavarian State Office for Schools. After examination, the State Office decides on the approval of the statutory benefits. If approved, the school authorities receive advance payments in the months of November, February and May (§ 22 AVBaySchFG).

At the end of the school year, a further application (final statement) must be submitted with a list of pupils by name, stating the number of months for which school fees were payable and the target amount of school fee compensation. Once the final statement has been completed, the final payment is made by the State Office for Schools.


The application for payment on account must be submitted by October 10 of each year, stating the number of pupils on October 1 and the amount of the monthly school fees.

To ensure that the final payment can be made promptly, the application for final settlement must be submitted together with the list of pupils as soon as possible after the end of the school year, but no later than October 15.

Processing time

If the application is submitted on time by the school board, it will receive written notification in mid-November.
