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 contact Financial aid and Disability Unit (disabilita@unive.it).


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 (with the exception of regional tax and stamp duty) under article 3, paragraph 1 of Italian Law 104 of 5 February 1992.

If you are enrolling in AY 2020/2021 you will only need to pay the regional tax for 172.00 euros for financial aid and stamp duty for 16 euros.

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 130.00 to EUR 149.99
2 from EUR 15,748.79 to EUR 31,497.56 from EUR 150.00 to EUR 171.99
3 over EUR 31.497.57 EUR 172.00

All students are required to pay 172.00 euros with their first instalment. The total amount due will be calculated, ISEE based, in April 2021.
Any excess regional tax paid in the first instalment will be reimbursed only by payment onto the University’s CartaConto.

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 handicap recognised pursuant to art.3 of Italian Law no.104 of 5 February 1992;
    • 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 send the updated documentationto Financial aid and Disability Unit (disabilita@unive.it).

Warning

The university is required by law to carry out random checks to confirm the truthfulness and accuracy of the information submitted in self-certification. Making a false statement is not only a criminal offence but will lead to administrative penalties being applied.

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 on the amount of fees only you submit the benefit application and ISEE certification and:

  • meet all the requirements (merit too) for reduction of tuition fees for students enrolled in bachelor's degree or master's degree programmes;
  • the ISEE certification is equal to or less than the maximum amount of 60,000 euros.

The benefit is a reduction of 400 euros from the tuition fees. You may have this benefit only if you haven't had a complete exemption from tuition fees (eligible for/winner of regional scholarship, etc.)
