The documents that are electronically signed by the General Registry of the Universidad Pontificia Comillas include a secure verification code (CSV as per the Spanish) that allows them to be downloaded online.

The secure verification code allows the citizen to present a printed copy of the electronic document to another institution or body, which will be able to check the authenticity of the document presented and that it has not been altered.

What is the secure verification code (CSV?)

The secure verification code of documents is made up of a series of digits that uniquely identifies any of the electronic documents issued by the Universidad Pontificia Comillas.

The CSV code can be found printed on each and every page of the document and it allows it to be matched to the original electronic document, thus converting it into an authentic copy.

The CSV code is important because any paper copy of the University's original electronic ones will be considered as an authentic copy if said code is included.

How does it work?

Anyone who needs to verify the validity of an electronic or paper document that was signed electronically by the Universidad Pontificia Comillas with a CSV, can do so by accessing this service (https://www.comillas.edu/VerifyDocument). The application requires the digits that make up the CSV on the document, and it will return the equivalent electronic document with the electronic signatures included. The user can, in turn, make a comparison of the document.

Who signs the documents on behalf of the General Registry of the Universidad Pontificia Comillas?

The Registrar of the Universidad Pontificia Comillas attests, with their signature, the information on students' academic records by means of the issuing of the corresponding academic certificates.

The Head of the Degree Certificates and Transcripts Service records the information regarding the enrolment of students at the University.

In both cases, by means of the issuing of electronically signed documents, they can also respond to requests by, or questions regarding students at the University at the General Registry.

Validation of electronically signed documents

If the validity of an original document that was electronically signed by the General Registry of the Universidad Pontificia Comillas needs to be verified, this can be done so via the Spanish Government’s platform VALIDE (https://valide.redsara.es/valide/validarFirma/ejecutar.html), with the maximum guarantees of integrity and authenticity.

Official undergraduates and postgraduates (RD 1393/2007-RD 861/2010).

Students admitted to Comillas Pontifical University can request the recognition of credits awarded by this or another university.

Credit recognition is understood as acceptance by our or another university of all the credits obtained in formal education which are recorded by every university in order to be awarded an official degree.

The request for recognition must be submitted once when the candidate first enrolls as a student at the university. It must contain all the prior official courses or studies completed for which recognition is sought, regardless of the subject or field of study they fall under.

Procedures:

To do so, students are required to submit the following documentation to the Degree Certificates and Transcripts Service (General Registry):

  • Duly completed and signed form (Download request form).
  • Original or certified copy of the academic certificate in full.
  • Copy of the course curriculum or descriptors, or reference to publication in the BOE (Official Spanish State Gazette).
  • Academic programs of the subjects, bearing the stamp of the university where the courses or modules were taken.
  • Student's proof of identity

In order to resolve all the queries concerning recognition options, it is advisable to contact the Head of Studies, Master’s Course Director or PhD Program Coordinator, before completing the request for credit recognition.

Related regulations:

  • Article 91 of the General Regulations, September 2014.

By way of exception, the Rector of the university is authorized to grant a Special Request for Final Retake in favor of students who, having exhausted the number of exam sittings permitted, have no more than 3 subjects or no more than 18 credits to finish the course.
