Generally speaking, the receipt for having satisfied fee payments is issued on behalf of the student, who is the person obliged to ensure payment is made.

If payment is going to be undertaken by a company, or by a public or private institution, the latter must be requested using the available standard form within the period set out in the bill for payment.

The billing request will then be sent by normal post to the Students Administration Office:

Secretaría de Estudiantes UIMP
C/ Isaac Peral, 23. 28040 Madrid
(Spain)

Non-payment

Failure to pay the total amount of the fee costs will render enrolment void, while implying the forfeiture of the amounts which previously may have been paid over.

The University will refuse to issue Degree Certificates or Certificates of Qualifications when students are found to have not satisfied outstanding payments.

Cancellation of Enrolment

The cancellation of enrolment renders the enrolment concerned academically and administratively ineffective with the consequent loss of the rights inherent to it.

The stipulated period within which to apply for the cancellation of all or part of the enrolment, with no right to reimbursement of the fees paid over at the time of formalizing it, will end on December 30 of each academic year.

Those applications for cancellation or reduction of the enrolment concerned which are submitted at least 14 calendar days prior to the start of the Academic Year will receive a 100% refund of the fees paid over at the time of formalizing the enrolment in the form of payment of credits. After this time, no reimbursement will be forthcoming.

The reimbursement which comes under this heading should be applied for by using the standard form available and should be accompanied by the original or copy of the payment slip concerned and / or by the corresponding justificatory proof in those cases in which the reason for requesting a reimbursement might require justification.

  • Application Form to request the Refund of Fees (Forms)

Only in the event of cancellation of the Studies Program, will the University also reimburse the fees paid over in lieu of administrative services.

Modification of Enrolment

Enrolment is undertaken on a year-long basis and, in general, modifications are not allowed. However, each year, within the Academic and Enrolment Calendar, a stipulated period is set aside for modifications to Enrolment for justifiable reasons (mainly due to the cancellation of elective subjects which were to have been taught).

The modification concerned will consist of replacing certain subjects with others. The minimum number of students required so as to ensure the teaching of a subject is 6, so that a subject cannot be replaced by another, if the replacement subject is left with less than 6 students enrolled in it.
