Full annulment of registration due to serious illness of the student


The exceptional situation caused by the COVID-19 health alert makes it necessary for the URV to take certain measures that alter its normal operation.

For this reason all applications for administrative procedures must be submitted via the following links: "Intranet Lynx Procedures" or "Electronic Registry of the URV".

Where possible, we will attend to your request by email or by telephone; however, if you need to speak to us in person, you can ask for an appointment via the website of your Campus Secretariat.

  • 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: 2021-22


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.


  • From the day on which registration has been completed until 13 December (for 1st semester)
  • Until 23 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. In the case of master's degree students, the refund will include the part of the fee paid to reserve a place.

  • 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.


  • 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.

  • 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.
