  • ITEM: Cessation of the academic and administrative procedures relating to a previously completed registration with the consequent loss of the rights of examination and of the status of student and of the benefits attached to this status.

Implementation course: 2020-21


Application procedure


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


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

  • Until 20 May (for 2nd semester)


By presenting the following documentation:


Students who cannot submit the application in person may do so via the online administrative procedures on the URV's intranet.

If students decide to annul their registration for reasons that make them eligible for compensation under the terms of their additional compulsory accident insurance policy, they must apply for any compensation for which they are eligible. The amount of any compensation received from the insurer for this reason will be deducted from any refunds that the University may authorise.


Resolution of the application


Head of the Secretary's Office of the Faculty/School. (*)  

(*) If the annulment will affect the student's compliance with the requirements regarding continuing attendance, the resolution will be issued by the vice-rector competent in student affairs. 


Whenever possible, when the application is made. At most, five days after presenting the application and the necessary 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.


  • Students who wish to annul their registration must either be up to date with their first course fee payment (period 1) or not be behind on any payments on the date that the application is presented.

  • If the application for annulment is not presented within the established periods and the corresponding fees are not paid, the student will be required to pay these fees. 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.

  • To complete the requested annulment, you must have paid the corresponding part-payment of your registration fee.


  • 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.

  • In the case of registration annulments, fees paid by the student for validation, adaptation, transfer between courses or credit recognition will not be returned. However, fees paid for the recognition/validation of credits will be returned.

  • Partial annulments of your registration are not normally possible. However, the University does have the power to waive this restriction for students who find themselves in exceptional circumstances (health problems or other special situations) to ensure that their education is not unduly affected.

  • Students who have applied for a grant must communicate the annulment to the University's Grant Service.

  • Students registered as grant applicants will also have their grant applications annulled. Students who have already received a grant must return them.
