Example: in the case of Modern Language, the student who has registered for the subject and who has some specific particularity (for example, who is an applicant for the MEC Scholarship) will have to take into account the requirements of said particularity when applying. decide when to enroll in a course of the subject (for example, if the MEC scholarship asks for a % of credits passed over the credits enrolled and the student enrolls but does not enroll in a group, the credits will appear for scholarship purposes as credits enrolled , but not yet passed in that academic year and this may harm you when obtaining said scholarship).

- The price per credit will be the official price set in the 2022/2023 academic year. for academic services depending on the different degrees and universities.
- The scholarship does not cover second or subsequent registrations: only the price of the credits in which you enroll for the first time.
- It only covers the minimum required credits to obtain the degree.
- If you study or are going to study in a center attached to the URJC, the scholarship covers only the public price set by the Decree on Public Prices of the Community of Madrid.
Once we have assigned the fixed amount scholarships to all the people who have requested it and who meet the requirements, we distribute the amount that is left over from the total budget. We do this by means of a mathematical distribution formula that weights, that is, measures, the average grade of your file and your per capita family income.
