Allowances and exemptions

Academic year 2021-2022

There are specific situations in official teaching that enable exemptions to or allowances for enrolment fees. To be able to resort to it be necessary to prove the situation that gives right to the deduction. 

General terms and conditions

Beneficiaries
Official bachelor's-, master’s- or doctoral-degree students, depending on the case
Accreditation

Generally speaking, to enjoy fee allowances or exemptions you will need to produce the requisite documents before your register. You, the students of new access, have to follow the specific instructions that you will receive about the documentation to bring.


The proved conditions have to be valid in the moment that the enrolment is made. If the condition has been accredited in previous academic years and is still valid on the start date of the academic year (see the academic calendar), there will be need to produce any documents.


If your documents are currently being processed or pending renewal, you will not be eligible for the enrolment fee discount, but presentations of updated documents will be accepted up to 31 December 2021 for subsequently regularising your situation.

Comments

Before you register, review the self-enrolment’s "Grants and allowances" tab. If you are entitled to any discounts that do not appear accredited, you will have the option to start the accreditation procedure by clicking on the corresponding "Apply” button and attaching scanned copies of the requisite documents.


In the affiliated centres, allowances apply to the prices that students pay the UdG for, as academic tutoring (in accordance with the Article 2(3) of the decree on prices).


Some prices linked to enrolment are mandatory and not subject to allowances: online educational and administrative services (€70), school insurance (€1.12, only for people under the age of 28) and accident insurance (€9.50, only for people over the age of 28).

MEFP’s general system scholarships

Beneficiaries
Bachelor's- or university master's-degree students who meet the requirements established in the call
Allowance or exemption

The MEFP’s general scholarships exempt students from having to pay 100% of their academic enrolment fees in credits enrolled on for the first time.


Affiliated centres exempt students from having to pay the prices required by the UdG, as academic tutoring (in accordance with the Article 2(3) of the Decree on Prices). Where grants are awarded, the remaining amount will be refunded to students once the UdG receives it from the MEFP/AGAUR. The enrolment scholarship is for the amount established in the article 10(2) of the Decree on Prices.

Accreditation

If you were a beneficiary of the MEFP’s general scholarship during the previous academic year and you meet the requirements established in the call for eligibility for the scholarship, you will be able to have direct recourse to the payment exemption (enrolment conditional on the decision to award the scholarship).


If you did not receive a scholarship during the previous academic year, you will need to apply from the Catalan government’s Virtual Procedures Office for financial accreditation and the Equity scholarship (boards are requested through a single form) to formalise university enrolment without payment.


In case you have asked for the economic accreditation and when registering yourselves you have not received answer to your application yet, you will not be able to formalise the conditioned enrolment to scholarship. In the moment in which the university has knowledge of this accreditation the enrolment of profession will be updated, whenever the rest of requirements established to the call for the enjoyment of the scholarship are gathered.

Comments

You will have to register, at the beginning of the academic course, of a number of equal or superior credits at a minimum foreseen by the call (30 credits), unless you find yourselves in the last course; in this case, you will have to register yourselves for all credits that they reduce you to finish the bachelor's degree or master, the credits of academic recognition included.


Even if you have formalised the enrolment with condition of grantholder (only payment of rates), it is compulsory to formalise the application of general character scholarship across the web of the MEFP.


If you do not gather the established academic requirements, you will not be able to resort to the exemption of payment (enrolment conditioned to scholarship).


If you request scholarship and resort to the exemption of payment for this concept, in case later they deny you the scholarship you will be able to pay the amount of enrolment in the indicated deadlines, either you cancel the enrolment in the deadline that it will be indicated in the notification, or resort to some other type of allowance or exemption whenever you have presented the crediting documentation in the established deadlines.

If the certificate is still being processing or renewed, you can ask for the corresponding price allowance or exemption if you produce a supporting document issued by a competent body that confirms this.

You will have to produce the renewed certificate, however, before the 31 December 2021.
