thoska-card serves many different functions.

It can be used as:

  • Student identity card
  • Library identity card
  • Method of payment in the canteen and cafeteria
  • Semester ticket

To apply for a thoska-card a student has to fill in the application form and to attach an up-to-date coloured passport photo (use glue, do not staple). To download the application form check the box on the right.

We will be glad to answer your questions sent to our contact e-mail: thoska(at)hs-schmalkalden.de.

Please either bring your complete application (signed and including your passport photo) to the thoska-office or send it to our postal address.
