Fee Reductions and Exemptions

Agevolazioni economiche

If you are a student with a recognised disability, you are entitled to various forms of financial aid ranging from complete exemption from tuition fees to a reduction based on the percentage of disability.

Should there be any variations in the declared percentage of disability in subsequent years of enrolment, you should inform the university


Students with a recognised disability rated at 66 percent or more

If you are a student with a disability rated at 66 percent or more you are entitled to complete exemption from your tuition fees under article 3, paragraph 1 of Italian Law 104 of 5 February 1992.

If you are enrolling in AY 2016/2017 you will only need to pay the regional tax for financial aid and 16 euros in stamp duty.

The regional tax for financial aid is calculated in proportion to the ISEE value contained in the declaration made by students requesting financial aid or subsidies, as shown in the table below:

Category ISEE Value Regional Tax Amount
1 from EUR 0.00 to EUR 15,748.78 from EUR 124.00 to EUR 143.99
2 from EUR 15,748.79 to EUR 31,497.56 from EUR 144.00 to EUR 164.99
3 over EUR 31.497.57 EUR 165.00

All students are required to pay 165.00 euros with their first instalment. The second instalment is calculated following submission of ISEE certification by the 30 September 2016 deadline (the second deadline is for re-enrolling students and involves a charge of €50).
Any excess regional tax paid in the first instalment will be reimbursed only by payment onto the University’s Multiservice Card.

To request exemption:

  • if you are enrolling in your first year, you should declare the percentage of recognised disability when you make your online  pre-enrolment, remembering to upload disability certification. The following documents are accepted:

    • Certification of disability rated at 66 percent or more;
    • Certification of speech- and hearing-impairment;
    • Certification of partial or complete visual impairment;
    • Certification of occupational disability rated at 66 percent or more;
    • Certification of military service disability classified in categories 1, 2, and 3 of Table A annexed to Italian Law of 10 August 1950, no. 648.

Certification must be issued by the Public Commissions responsible for certifying the various types of disability.
Alternatively, students may submit the ruling of the competent civil judge recognising one of the above-listed disabilities.

  • if you are a student enrolled in subsequent years, the amount will be calculated automatically on the basis of the certification submitted when you enrolled in the first year of your studies. If the percentage of your disability has changed since then, you will need to fill in a disability fee exemption/reduction request form for AY 2016/2017 and submit it to the Disability Service.

In addition, there are personalised merit requirements for the award of maintenance grants, as described in the call for applications.


Students with a disability rated from 50 to 65 percent

If you are a student with a disability rated from 50 to 65 percent you are entitled to a reduction of 200 euros on the amount of fees due on the basis of your ISEE certification provided you:

  • submit ISEE certification by the deadlines and your household income is equal to or less than the maximum amount of 49,999.99 euros;
  • meet the merit requirements for reduction of tuition fees for students enrolled in bachelor's degree or master's degree programmes;
  • complete the online financial aid application in your Personal Area by the deadline.
