Implementation course: 2023-24


Application procedure


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


In 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.

Resolution of the application


Head of the Secretary's Office of the Faculty/School.  


As far as is possible, within the 5 working days after receiving the application and any required documentation. 

August is not considered to be a working month.


  • The interested party will be informed of the resolution and, if appropriate, their academic transcript will be updated.

  • The annulment of registration will be recorded on the computer system.


  • If the application for annulment is approved, the fees corresponding to the credits for which the student has registered and recognised or validated credits, if appropriate, will be refunded. In the case of master's students, the refund may include the amount that the student has paid to reserve their place on the course.

  • To complete the requested annulment, you must have paid the corresponding part-payment of your registration fees.
  • If the fees are not paid within the established periods, the student will still be required to pay them and the annulment will not be granted. Students in this situation will be temporarily suspended. Certificates and academic transcripts will not be issued to students while they are suspended. Suspended students may not resume their studies at the University in subsequent academic years until they have paid all outstanding fees. This is stipulated in the Decree on public prices and applies to all Catalan universities.

  • Once the annulment comes into effect, students are not entitled to a refund of the registration supplementary charges, insurance and voluntary services, or of the charges paid for validation, adaptation, transfer or recognition of credits from the curriculum.


  • Students who registration is annulled will lose their places and the registrations will be null and void.

    • New students will be returned the documents that they submitted when they registered. Students must go through the pre-registration procedure again if they wish to begin any new university course.

    • All other students who annul their registration and who wish to continue their studies must make a formal request to do so.

  • If the student has requested a grant, this request will also not be granted. If the student has received any funding related to the grant, they must return it.

  • If the student registered with the status of grant applicant, they will lose this status when their registration is formalised.
