ISEE under 13,000 EUR

If your ISEE is under 13,000 EUR you will only be required to pay the following for the entire academic year 2017/2018:

  • the regional tax for financial aid (amount is currently being established by the Regione Veneto);
  • stamp duty of 16.00 EUR.

N.B. The regional tax for financial aid is calculated in proportion to the ISEE indicator for financial aid declared by the student.

To obtain a reduction in the above amount you must meet the following conditions:

  • you must have completed your enrolment in academic year 2017/2018, by paying the first instalment of your tuition fees by the administrative deadlines laid down for the academic year 2017/2018;
  • you must have requested ISEE certification for financial aid by 30 September 2017 (or by 20 December 2017 by paying a penalty surcharge of 50.00 EUR) and have uploaded your request to your Personal Area by 30 September 2017 (by 20 December 2017 if you transferred from another university/Department or by 31 March 2018 if you withdraw from your final examination);
  • if you are enrolled in a bachelor’s degree programme you must not have another degree, either under the old system (even prior to DM 509/1999) or under the new system, whether obtained in Italy or abroad, or a diploma issued by the Conservatory/Fine Arts Academy, or a three-year first-level diploma issued under Italian law no. 508/1999;
  • if you are enrolled in a master’s degree programme, you must not have another degree obtained prior to DM 509/1999, specialist degree, or master’s degree, obtained either in Italy or abroad, a diploma issued by the Conservatory/Fine Arts Academy, or a two-year second level diploma issued under Italian law no. 508/1999;
  • you must not still be enrolled in a degree programme under the old system prior to DM no. 509/1999;
  • you must have completed the minimum credit requirements (credits effectively registered in your student’s record book) between 11 August 2016 and 10 August 2017 as indicated below:

Bachelor’s degree programmes

Year* Full-time students – ECTS Part-time students – ECTS
1 0 0
2 at least 1 ECTS/year 0
3 at least 25 ECTS/year at least 5 ECTS/year
4 at least 25 ECTS/year at least 5 ECTS/year
5 - at least 12 ECTS/year
6 - at least 13 ECTS/year

Master’s degree programmes

Year* Full-time students – ECTS Part-time students – ECTS
1 0 0
2 at least 10 ECTS/year 0
3 at least 25 ECTS/year at least 5 ECTS/year
4 - at least 5 ECTS/year

(*) “Year” refers to the number of years of enrolment from the first year of matriculation in any University, as in the case of transfer from another University or Department.

Credits resulting from the exams/activities below will not be taken into account for the purpose of calculating merit requirements:

  • exams/placements relative to previous studies that ended with a qualification or following withdrawal/loss of student status or from other activities, including exams taken prior to matriculation for which a credit exemption was obtained;
  • exams taken as single courses prior to matriculating in your current programme;
  • incomplete exams (for example, if you did not take all parts of a multiple-part exam).

After six years of enrolment (for bachelor’s degree programmes) or four years of enrolment (for master’s degree programmes), part-time students will be considered as full-time students and will be subject to the same merit requirements.

Students who matriculated as part-time students and subsequently switched to full-time status should calculate their years of attendance (necessary for the calculation of academic merit as shown in the table above) as follows: two academic years attended with part-time status are counted as one full-time year and a single “part-time year” will also be considered as equivalent to one full-time year. Similarly, students who matriculated as full-time students and subsequently switched to part-time status should count every academic year attended with full-time status as two “part-time years”.

Reduced first instalment (first-year students only)

If you are matriculating in your first year and you have an ISEE of less than 13,000 EUR, you may pay the regional tax for financial aid and stamp duty only at the time of matriculation (instead of the first instalment of tuition fees).

In order to benefit from this reduction, after completing the pre-enrolment procedure and prior to paying the first instalment you must do the following:

  • compile and upload your online financial aid request in your Personal Area;
  • send an email to the Financial Aid unit at least three working days prior to the deadline for matriculation asking for the recalculation of your tuition fees.

If you are a transfer student from another University you will be required to pay the first instalment of tuition fees in full.

ATTENTION:

  • Even if you have an ISEE under 13,001 EUR but you do NOT meet the requirements laid down in the “Student Act”, you will be required to pay the maximum amount of tuition fees foreseen for students enrolled in bachelor’s degree programmes and master’s degree programmes;
  • if you are enrolled in the Crossing the Mediterranean: towards Investment and Integration (MIM) Master’s Degree programme, you cannot benefit from the subsidies provided by the “Student Act”.

1st instalment

The first instalment for all students enrolled in their second year (or subsequent years) is 1,134.00 EUR. This amount includes:

  • the regional tax for financial aid (amount is currently being established by the Regione Veneto);
  • stamp duty of 16.00 EUR;
  • all-inclusive tuition fee.

If you belong to one of the following categories, you may pay the regional tax for financial aid and 16.00 EUR stamp duty only at the time of enrolment:

  • if you intend to matriculate in the academic year 2017/2018 (you must submit your ISEE to the Financial Aid unit beforehand);
  • recipients of regional scholarships or students eligible for scholarships in AY 2016/2017 who are enrolling on-track, meet the requirements of the call and are intending to re-apply for a scholarship for AY 2017/2018. Should you fail to meet any of these conditions you must contact the Financial Aid Unit beforehand;
  • you have a recognised disability rated at 66% or a disability recognised under paragraph 1 of Article 3 of the Italian Law of 5 February 1992, no.104.

N.B. Adjustments will be made in April 2018 when the amount effectively due will be worked out on the basis of your merit requirements and submission of the following declarations (deadline for submission is 30 September 2017 or 20 December 2017 paying a penalty surcharge of 50.00 EUR):

  • request for entitlements to be compiled and uploaded in your Personal Area;
  • ISEE for University financial aid.

If the amount paid in the first instalment exceeds the amount effectively due, you will be refunded by payment onto your University Multiservice Card.

Students enrolling in their second year or subsequent years must pay the first instalment by 30 September 2017; students matriculating in the AY 2017/2018 pay their first instalment at the time of enrolment (final deadline 30 September 2017) on free access bachelor’s degree programmes and master’s degree programmes.

You may also enrol on free access master’s degree programmes by paying the first instalment between 14 November and 11 December 2017.

See the calls for applications for deadlines for limited access bachelor’s and master’s degree programmes.

Penalty surcharge

Late payment – for students enrolling in their second year or subsequent years only – involves the following penalty surcharges:

  • 50.00 EUR for the payment of the first instalment from 1 October 2017 to 30 October 2017;
  • 200.00 EUR for the payment of the first instalment from 31 October 2017 onwards.

2nd instalment

You will only be required to pay the second instalment if you do not meet the requirements laid down by the “Student Act” or if you have to pay the penalty surcharge.

These calculations take place in April 2018 and once completed an announcement will be published on the University homepage.

Afterwards you can check to see what your payment status is in your Personal Area.

An email informing you of your payment status will be sent your official university email address (studentnumber@stud.unive.it).

The second instalment should be paid by 15 May 2018.

Withdrawal or loss of student status

Withdrawal or loss of student status involves payment of the full amount of the maximum tuition fees or the fees calculated on the basis of your merit/income (if you are entitled to financial aid) and losing the right to an eventual refund.

If you submit your withdrawal request by 28 February 2018 you will not be required to pay the second instalment but nor will you be entitled to a refund of the first instalment paid for enrolment in the academic year 2017/2018.

Students graduating in the autumn/extraordinary session

If you have paid the first instalment for the new academic year and you graduate in the autumn session (October - December) or in the extraordinary session (February - April) of the previous year, you will be automatically refunded this amount (minus stamp duty and the regional tax for financial aid) in the summer period by payment onto your University Multiservice Card.

Tax deduction of tuition fees

You can deduct the expenses resulting from enrolment in university programmes when making your income statement. Deductible expenses include tuition fees for students enrolling on Bachelor’s Degree Programmes or Master’s Degree Programmes.
