CONDITIONAL ADMISSION

In order to get students beginning classes as soon as possible, the law allows them to have a conditional admission. This will mean the student will be able to register at the university without handing in/having all the required documents. This special type of agreement between UCH-CEU and the student is agreed through the following rules and conditions:

  • You will only be able to apply for this status under the conditions of the Education Law LOMCE
  • The student will take on this status voluntarily and under their own responsibility
  • An essential requirement is that the student bring/hands in proof to UCH-CEU University that they have requested the credential/validation/official approval of their documents by the Ministry of Education or equivalent
  • The student’s enrolment will not be confirmed and will not take full academic effect until the Ministry of Education or equivalent approves their request and the student has provided the Administration Office with proof of this decision
  • During the time that the student has ‘conditional admission’ status, the student will have the same rights and responsibilities as other UCH-CEU students, except the following:
  • Until their enrolment has been made official they will not be able to receive any type of Certificate of their results or qualification from UCH-CEU that reflects the studies they are currently doing.
  • Until the student is officially enrolled they will not be able to request an academic record transfer to another Spanish university
  • In all certificates or documents that may be produced by UCH-CEU for the student they will have to certify that the student is of ‘conditional admission’ status.
  • As the student takes on voluntarily the status of ‘conditional admission’ they accept the risk that, ultimately, the Ministry of Education could refuse their request. If this situation occurs, the student will have to leave the university at the end of the semester, without claiming any compensation from UCH-CEU. The university will not be able to produce an academic certificate given that the student did not complete the legal requirements for accessing the university.
  • If the Ministry of Education or authorities deny the student’s request, UCH-CEU will not be able to refund any payments made for the enrollment, academic procedures, or any other type of payment, regardless of the time and /or the course the student concerned has taken.
