At enrolment, students may pay only the regional tax for financial aid and the stamp duty if:

N.B. All students pay the regional tax for financial aid with the 1st instalment. The actual amount due by the students will be determined during the calculation of the 2nd instalment, based on the submission by September 30th, 2015 (or by December 18th, 2015, with the payment of an over-tax of EUR 50.00 if you enrol to one of the years following the first) of both of these documents:

  • benefit application form, to be compiled online in the Personal Area;
  • ISEE certificate for university financial aid.

If the amount of the 1st instalment payed together with the regional tax for financial aid exceeds the amount effectively due, the difference will be refunded during the summer exclusively through a deposit on the Ca' Foscari's Multiservice Card.

The first instalment must be paid:

  • within the terms specified in the call for applications, by students enroled in their first year;
  • by September 30th, 2015, by students enroled in their second or successive years.

Penalty Surcharge

  • EUR 200.00 for the payment of the first instalment from December 19th 2015 onwards.

Second instalment

The second instalment is calculated by subtracting the first instalment from the total amount to be paid (calculated based on the household income).

If the amount paid in the first instalment exceeds the amount effectively due, a refund will be credited to the student's University Multiservice Card in the summer.

The second instalment should be paid by May 13th, 2016.

Reductions on the basis of household income

Reductions based on student's household income defined on the basis of the ISEEU (Equivalent Financial Indicator Index) can be applied to the maximum amount of university tuition fees due for the academic year 2015/2016.

The ISEEU is an instrument which measures the effective financial resources and the income of anyone asking for welfare benefits. The results are obtained by combining and assessing the income, assets and composition of the family unit.

There are eight tuition fee categories according to ISEEU value:

Category ISEEU Value Enrolment fee amount
1 from EUR 0.00 to EUR 8,499.99 EUR 0.00
