If you have studied previously, before starting your present study program…

... recognition of studies and qualifications will be an issue that is of relevance for you. The rule is that equivalent academic study programs (passed and failed) must be credited. To get them credited you must submit an application within six weeks of starting your course (that means by mid-November for the winter semester and by mid-May for the summer semester). You must attach a complete and final performance record from your previous university. If you have switched study programs at the TUHH a performance record will not be required. Recognition is regulated in Section 13 of the General Provisions of the Course and Examination Regulations for Bachelor’s and Master’s Programs at the Hamburg University of Technology, or ASPO (German abbreviation) for short.
