Our recommendation is to use the Electronic Registry which is permanently open


The main objective of the Electronic Registry Office is to improve communication between the University and members of the University community and with other users from outside the University.  The opening of the Electronic Registry Office provides another channel of communication enabling users to access the most up to date information and carry out administrative procedures online. Through this service, users can present documents online or access University administrative services at any time.

Digital certificates

The official government Identification certificate (Certificado FNMT de Persona Física) links the bearer with certain data to verify and confirm personal identity. This certificate allows you to identify yourself digitally and to sign or encrypt electronic documents.

The certificate allows you to safely perform transactions with government offices (Administración Pública) via the Internet.

It is used on an Internet browser, does not require additional software and is free of charge. Further Information.

Certification of documents

At Universidad Carlos III de Madrid only the following types of documents may be certified:

  • Documents issued by the University
  • Documents issued by other agencies/organizations that have to be presented to the University
