Credits recognition

You can request recognition of credits in your new degree in the following cases:

- Subjects passed in the UC3M itself:

  • You will have to consult in each case the corresponding information in the Virtual Secretariat of the center in which you have been admitted to know the way of presenting your application.

- Subjects passed in another university:

  • You must fill out the application form, accompanied by your personal academic certification and the official programs of the subjects for which you are applying for recognition (stamped by the university of origin) and submit it to the Campus Information Point. In undergraduate studies, the programs of the basic education subjects must indicate the branch of knowledge to which these subjects belong.

- Subjects passed in Higher Training Cycles with the right to recognition in the UC3M:

You must fill out the application form in the Student Office and present an academic certification with the courses taken and the qualifications of the training cycle.

Here you can consult the Training Cycles and the Degrees in which you can request recognition.
