Also physics students who are already members of the DPG and now got their bachelor certification can benefit: As a token of appreciation they get the amount of an annual membership fee credited on their membership account.
For this purpose, please use the modification form and upload a scan or a photo of your bachelor certification.
At the moment of application (or modification) the bachelor certification must be no older than 6 months according to the date marked on the certification.
The membership account of the new members (or of those who uploaded their bachelor certification) will be credited with an amount equivalent to an annual membership fee. For a new member this means the following:
If you become a member during the first 6 months of a year, you will not pay a membership fee for this year. For the following year you will be asked the normal annual membership fee.
If you become a member between July, 1st and October 31st of a year, you will not pay a membership fee for this year. At the beginning of the following year, you will be asked to pay half of the annual membership fee for the second half of this year.
If you become a member in November or December of a year, you will not pay a membership fee neither for the rest of this year nor for the following year. Only at the beginning of the year thereafter you will be asked to pay the normal annual membership fee.
You can terminate your membership by the end of a year with a written declaration (e-mail, fax, letter) until November 30th. Without resignation, the free membership automatically changes into a normal membership. Those who become a free member between July 1st and October 31st of a year can also terminate by June 30 of the following year; in this case, no membership-fee has to be paid for the first half of this year.
The offer of a free membership for new Bachelors is valid until further notice but can be retracted by DPG at any moment.
