CEU San Pablo University’s model of higher education, based on personalized accompaniment, the values of Christian Humanism, solidarity and team work, means that the University can only guarantee the competence of its graduates after they have spent a period of time exposed to this model. For this reason, it only accepts academic transfers from other Universities that do not involve recognition or transfer of more than 120 credits.


Definitive acceptance will be granted once you provide the original academic information or certified copies by post or in person:

  • Academic transcript stamped by the university, original or certified copy
  • Study plan of the entire degree stamped by the university, original or certified copy
  • Syllabi for the subjects you have already passed, stamped by the university, original or certified copies.

If the university studies have been pursued outside of the European Union, the documents must also be legalized by the Hggue Apostille or via diplomatic channels. If the requested documentation is not submitted before the beginning of the academic year, the provisional credit recognition/transfer report will not come into effect.

Once we have this documentation, you will be granted definitive admission and you may formalize your enrollment through the following procedures:

  • Payment of the enrollment fees (€ 1,295 for single degrees and €1795 for double degrees) within the period indicated in the acceptance notification
  • Completion of the enrollment form
  • Signing of the enrollment document
