Students enrolled in first- or second-cycle degree programmes may interrupt their studies for a period of no less than one academic year for reasons (outlined below) preventing regular attendance.
You may not interrupt your studies during the first year of a limited access degree programme.
Acceptable reasons for interruption of studies are listed below:
You will be required to pay a flat fee of 100.00 euros per academic year of interruption. In case of interruption for general reasons you will be required to pay 300.00 euros per academic year.
Depending upon the reasons for interruption you should submit your request as follows:
Should you be forced to interrupt your studies during the course of the academic year due to illness you may be entitled to reimbursement of all or part of your tuition fees (subject to the provision of appropriate certification and at the discretion of the office concerned).
In order for your application to be finalised you need to submit sending a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org :
You will then be contacted by the student administration unit to proceed with the punctual payment of the amounts due (including a € 16 stamp) directly from your personal area.
The interruption will be effective after payment of the amounts due.
Withdrawal is the official statement of your intention to give up your university studies.
Withdrawal is irrevocable and involves the cancellation of your university career. However, should you decide to enrol in a new degree programme you may be able to get your prior exams recognised and acquire credits following an assessment by the teaching board responsible aimed at confirming the relevance of knowledge acquired during your previous career.
You may withdraw from your studies at any time. Bear in mind that:
You must have settled all tuition fees up to the last academic year in which you enrolled and submit the following to the Student Administration Unit (Bachelor's and Master's degrees):
The procedure can be carried out by sending all the requested documentation and a photocopy of your ID by registered mail with return receipt to the following address: Università Ca' Foscari – Settore Carriere Studenti L e LM, Ca' Foscari, Dorsoduro 3246, 30123 Venice. You can also send the documentation by e-mail to email@example.com
If you were an eligible/successful applicant for a scholarship in the last academic year.
Remember that if you have paid the first instalment of your university tuition fees and fail to pay the second instalment, this does not mean you have withdrawn from your studies: you must formalise your withdrawal by carrying out the steps described above.
After matriculation, you will not be entitled to reimbursement of the first instalment of your tuition fees.
If you were eligible or a recipient of a regional scholarship and you decide to withdraw from your studies, you should contact the Financial Aid Unit: you will lose the right to financial aid and will be required to pay any outstanding tuition fees. You will also be required to pay back any scholarship money that you may have received.
Loss of student status means that any learning activities carried out during the course of your career (exams, traineeships, aptitude tests) will be cancelled.
If students have studied as both full- and part-time students, the length of time is calculated in proportion to these periods.
Periods of interruption of studies are not taken into account for the purpose of loss of student status.
Both periods of study will be calculated for the purpose of loss of student status in the case of intra-university transfers (students who have changed to another degree programme offered by Ca’ Foscari).
In the case of inter-university transfers (students who have come to Ca’ Foscari from another university) calculations for loss of student status start from the time of their enrolment at Ca' Foscari.
Due to the new rules in force, loss of student status applies to those matriculating at Università Ca' Foscari from a.y. 2014/2015 onwards, including those matriculating after withdrawal or prior loss of student status and those matriculating after having obtained a university qualification, regardless of the year of admission.
Loss of student status will not be applied to students who have passed all exams except their final graduation exam or to students who enrolled up to a.y. 2013/2014.
Loss of student status only ends your old university career; students who have been affected by loss of student status can later matriculate to a Bachelor's and Master's degree programme as either a full-time or part-time status, and request the recognition of any credits that you may have previously obtained.
