Reductions for EU or non-EU citizens with tax domicile

Am I entitled to a reduction in tuition fees?

Yes, if you have an ISEE certificate valid for the Right to Education under € 60,000 and you submit the Benefits Application (Richiesta Agevolazioni) and if you meet the requirements to obtain the reductions.

What is ISEE? Where can I ask? By what date? 

The ISEE indicator is a tool assessing the effective income and asset situation of anyone requesting financial aid, and is obtained by combining and assessing three factors: income, assets and the composition of the household.
If you are an Italian national or financially independent non-Italian national residing in Italy, you must request your ISEE for financial aid by with the help of a CAF centre or professional tax consultant, or you can fill in the online form by yourself on the INPS website within the scheduled deadlines.
If you are an Italian or non-Italian national residing abroad and/or your income have been earned abroad, you can request an equivalent ISEE (ISEE Parificato) by booking an appointment (free of charge) at the CGIL CAF (tax office) licensed with the University. Click here for more information. 

How is the fee reduction calculated? 

The reduction is calculated proportionally based on the value of the ISEE valid for the right to education.

What are the requirements to benefit from the ISEE-based entitlements?

To benefit from the ISEE-based entitlements you must not have a degree equivalent to the one you are enrolled in at Ca' Foscari (University Degree, Academy of Fine Arts Degree or Conservatory Degree). You are also required to:
