Attention: If you do not carry out the required procedure or do not comply with the requirements set out below, although in possession of an ISEE economic situation of under 22,000 euros, you will be subject to the maximum contribution provided for the majority of students enrolled in Bachelor’s and Master’s degree courses.

Procedure

To benefit from the reduction of student fees you will need: 

  • to request ISEE certification for financial aid for the right to university study;
  • Complete and submit the benefit request in your reserved area. Attention: in order for it to be correctly received by the offices, it is necessary to complete the application and submit it  with the special ‘submit for reductions application’ button. At the end, the receipt for successful submission will be issued, which you must keep;
  • to enroll for the a.y. 2020/2021 by paying the first instalment of fees.

You need to do the above by:

  • 30th  September 2020;
  • 17th December 2020 with a 50.00 euro late fee;
  • 17th December 2020, without arrears, if you are a transfer student or you register for the first year of a master’s degree programme;
  • 31st March 2021, without arrears, if you have withdrawn your degree application.

Requirements

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

  • you must have completed your enrolment in academic year 2020/2021, by paying the first instalment of your tuition fees by the administrative deadlines laid down for the academic year 2020/2021;
  • 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 2019 and 10 August 2020 as indicated below:

Bachelor’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 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.

For the purpose of calculating merit for obtaining benefits, any years of suspension from studies are not counted, except in cases where the suspension has been determined by disciplinary measures. Furthermore, credits coming from:

  • 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”.

How to pay less for the first instalment

If you have an ISEE for income-based benefits for the right to university studies of less than 22,000.00 euros, you can pay only the Regional tax for financial aid plus the stamp duty for the entire 2020/2021 academic year instead of the first instalment of 700.00 euros, only if you follow the procedure below before the deadlines.

If you enrol  in the first year, after having finished the pre-enrolment procedure and before paying the first instalment within the deadline for enrolment, you must:

  • Apply for ISEE 2020 for income-based benefits for the right to education;
  • Fill out and send the application for financial aid online by clicking here

  • Apply for ISEE 2020  for the income-based benefits for the right to education;
  • Fill out and send the application for financial aid online in your Reserved Area.
