MODIFICATIONS TO REGISTRATION, withdrawal from subjects (master's degrees)

  • DESCRIPTION: This procedure allows students to withdraw voluntarily from one or more subjects during the academic year. The procedure involves the partial modification of the student's registration record once 5 calendar days have passed since the student registered. Students have no right to a refund of the course fees for any subject from which they choose to withdraw.

Implementation course: 2024-25


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.


  • Ordinary period: from the day on which the registration process is completed to 30 October.

  • Extraordinary period: during the month of February (pending specifying the calendar), only for subjects taught in the second semester. (*observations)


Students must present the following documentation:


If the procedure that they have requested is authorised and formalised, students must pay the fee issued by the Secretary's Office for modifying the number of subjects for which they are registered. This fee is established by the current decree on public prices.

Students must be up to date with their payments on the date the application is made.


  • Master's students must remain registered for a minimum of 18 credits. This includes any subjects for which students registered during the previous academic year and which they did not pass.
  • Students who have registered for more than 18 credits may withdraw from the subjects that take them over this minimum limit. They may first withdraw from newly registered subjects and then from subjects from the previous academic year which that have not passed, provided, however, that they maintain the minimum amount of 18 credits.

  • (*) During the extraordinary period, students may only apply to withdraw from subjects taught during the second semester and those subjects which, despite being defined by the faculty/school as annual, are concentrated entirely in the second semester.
  • Grant holders who withdraw from a subject must be aware that doing so may affect the academic requirements stipulated by the ministry for the awarding of general grants during the following academic year and the amount of the grants awarded during the current academic year. They will also have to pay the fees for the subjects that they withdraw from.



Resolution of the application


The faculty/school at which the application form has been presented.


As far as possible, within 5 working days of presenting the application and any necessary documentation, and at the most up to 10 days after presenting the application. 

* August is not considered to be a working month.


  • If the request is approved, the secretary's office with complete the withdrawal and generate the invoice for the corresponding registration modification charge.

The student's academic transcript will be updated to reflect the student's withdrawal from study. This will substitute any personal notification (the student can consult their transcript by going to Intranet - consulta d'expedient acadèmic).

The student can also print the registration fee invoice from the platform "My payments", where they will find that the "V" next to the relevant subject has changed to "*".

The resolution regarding withdrawal may not be reversed.

  • If the application is not approved, the student will be informed directly.


The withdrawal will have no financial consequences regarding registration, but it will incur a registration modification charge. Student grant holders must pay the fees for the subjects from which they withdraw.

The student will receive an email informing them if that they have to pay the registration modification charge

Approval by the Faculty/School of a student's request to withdraw from a subject will not lead to the refunding of the corresponding registration fee.

Students who have had their withdrawal from a subject authorised by the Faculty/School will not be charged for repeating subjects that they have not passed during the subsequent academic.

Academic consequences

During the academic year in which the application for withdrawal from a subject is made:

  • the student may not receive any tuition in that subject or be evaluated for it.

  • the student may not receive a grade for the subject.


The Faculty/School will only authorize applications for withdrawal from a subject for students who are up to date with all their payments.
