Academic details

If you have registered for more credits than are needed to complete the degree course and you are still waiting for the final official marks to be awarded for outstanding subjects, you can either:

  • Request the issuance of the certificate, which means that you renounce the marks for the outstanding subjects (you must inform the secretary's office of the faculty/school/campus so that they can annul your registration for the outstanding subjects).

  • Wait until the marks for the pending subjects have been awarded and then request the certificate.

Economic details

If you have applied for a general grant from the Ministry, your degree certificate cannot be issued until the award of the grant has been confirmed. If you have not received confirmation, you must wait until you do. However, you can ask for your status as a grantholder to be withdrawn, pay the corresponding registration fee and then ask for your certificate to be issued. When your grant is finally awarded, the registration fee will be refunded as a result of the new situation.

If you do not want to wait to pay the pending amounts within the specified periods, you must contact the funding organization with whom agreed the loan and inform them that you wish to pay off your fees. Once you have paid the outstanding amounts, you can request the issuance of your certificate.

Observations

The moment you present your request for the issuance of your degree certificate, your academic record will be closed.

If the original certificate has not been signed by the holder, the authorised individual must present a letter of attorney confirming their ability to carry out the legalisation.

  • If you live in a different locality or country you may request for the European Supplement of the degree certificate to be sent to you by courier or recorded mail.You will be responsible for organizing and paying for this.
