  • If the student resides in another country, he/she may request that the certificate be sent to a Spanish embassy or consular office.
  • In cases where the student has already requested the issuance of the degree certificate, a member of the immediate family may ask the rector for permission to collect it.
  • A specific acknowledgement must be included in the official degree certificate.
