  • ITEM: The process by which students can change the bank details that appear on their records.

Application procedure


The interested party or the authorized person on presentation of the necessary identification.


At the Secretary's Office of the Faculty/School where they are carrying out their studies.

The application can also be submitted via the online administrative procedures on the URV's intranet or the URV online registry.


When the student's bank details have changed.


By presenting the following documentation:




  • Students must be aware that by submitting the application to change bank details, they authorise the URV to submit payment requests to the new account. Moreover, students declare that they are the account holders or, if they are not, that they have express permission from the holder for the payment requests to be submitted to the new bank account given.

  • Before informing the university of the change to their bank details, the student must be aware that transactions may have been made using the old bank details. Therefore, the student must keep the old account active for a minimum of 10 days.

  • If the student does not communicate the change in bank details, the existing details in his/her record will be transfer from one academic year to the next.

  • The student may introduce the change when self-registering.

  • This change will not stop any processes that have been undertaken due to non-payment of fees.
